Lucky Shamrock Tablescape

You may have noticed that I tip-toed right by Mardi Gras, and I almost skipped by St. Patrick’s Day, as well.

Lucky Shamrock Tablescape

Both of these occasions call for green.  I have green accents (or walls) in every room.  All different shades of green – just as God provides in nature.

What is my problem with green tablescapes, then, huh?

Centerpiece Collection

My mind has been flooded with visions of bird-themed tables, garden tables, Easter tables…

I’m trying to contain myself and not jump ahead too much.  Do you do that, too?

Does all the green make you ready for Spring?  Or, were you ready before now?

You might remember the DIY Spanish Moss Mat from last Spring.

Oh, I wanted to tell you that I found the lucky shamrock plants at Kroger the other day.

$5 for the 3″ pot (like mine), and $10 for the larger 6″ pot.  I’m sure they’ll go quickly, so hurry on over.  (No, I’m not paid by Kroger to tell you that.)

I made the pot jackets out of burlap ribbon – hot glued it lightly to the pot, then embellished it with the button.  Easy-peasy!  (What would we do without hot glue?)

I snipped the end into an arrow shape.

Both pots are pointing to the pot of gold.

The Faux Milk Glass is making its appearance again.

I found a tutorial for folding my green napkins into a clover – four-leaf, of course.  We’re going for luck, right?

Shamrock Napkin Fold

Enjoy – and see how my napkins don’t compare to the perfection in the video. 😉


Gold Rolo® chocolates dot the centers of my napkins.  You can see below, if you come close to the video napkins, you get the point across to your guests.

Shamrock Place Setting

I decided the yellow charger added color to my shades of green.  The yellow accents in the centerpiece were brought out to coordinate.

Green, Yellow, and White

I don’t know why I almost skipped setting this table.  What’s so hard about green, gold, and white?

Do you ever get stuck?  Have you hit roadblocks with decorating a table before?

    Hi Kim,

    Did you make the curtains we see in this post? They are gorgeous! I love, love the fabric; it reminds me of English chintz. Your tablescape turned out great! I love the idea of shamrock pots in vases, and your pot jackets are so cute and creative. This is the first year I’ve completed and photographed a St. Paddy’s Day table. I started one the first year I blogged, but somehow, it never got finished to my satisfaction. 🙂 I think green and white are so cheerful for spring. I’m glad you decided not to skip the St. Patrick’s Day table.

    Visiting from Tablescape Thursday — Happy St. Pat’s Day to you!

      Yes, I made these panels before blog days, so I have no tutorial. Sorry! I’ve thought about taking them down and making pictures to provide a little instruction, at least. I’ll definitely put that on my to-do list now. 🙂 The fabric isn’t chinz, but the pattern is definitely English garden worthy. Thanks for visiting. I’m hopping over to visit your St. Pat Day tablescape now. Happy St. Pat’s Day!

    Since I’m crazy for napkin folds, that was the first thing I noticed on your table. Thanks for sharing the tutorial. We have in common lots of green tones in our home. It is such an easy color to work with, and I’m always drawn to its various shades. Funny though, I don’t wear much green.

    • Kim says

      I don’t wear much either, Linda. Isn’t that funny? So glad you enjoyed the napkin fold tutorial. Happy St. Pat’s Day!

    Great table for St. Patrick’s Day! Love the napkin fold, perfect for the occasion. My thoughts are much like yours – on birds, spring and Easter tables – I am just so sick of winter and it is snowing again here as I am typing this!

    • Kim says

      Ann, I don’t know where you live, but I’m sorry to hear you’re having more snow. Hang in there – Spring is right around the corner. Thanks for visiting! 🙂

    I am always stuck!!! That’s why it takes me days and days and days to put together a tablescape. I’m working on one now for my Mom’s birthday luncheon next Saturday. Started it 4 or 5 days ago and am still not 100% sold on what I’ve put together. That’s why I start early…I fuss with the nitpicky details!!!

    This is a beautiful St. Patrick’s Day table, Kim. I like the subtle sophistication of it. If you’re not looking to go wild but rather enjoy a nice, quiet cabbage dinner, this is the table for it! It speaks volumes without getting loud about it. This is the table I’d eat dinner at….THEN I’d go get my crazy hat and beer bong on!!! 🙂

      I’m shocked! I can’t believe you would ever get stuck on a tablescape. You are the expert. The pro! The all-time tablescape guru! Thank you for your sweet comment. I hope you can get your mom’s birthday luncheon table set to your satisfaction before too much longer. 🙂
