To be sure, to be sure

How did your St Pat’s Day turn out?? Mr FH and I went walking on Saturday afternoon past our local Irish pub…..let’s just say a great time was had by all.  It was only 3pm so I’m sure by midnight the place was really rocking.
This week’s table started when I purchased these great chevron patterned placemats recently – just the right thing for a St Pat’s Day table.
Gold coins in gold spray painted flower pots along with gold candles, moss rocks and some fresh ivy made a simple centrepiece.
I do think I did have a visit from a leprechaun though!  I had some cream damask napkins all prepared for the table and it wasn’t until I looked back at the photos when I noticed they weren’t on the table. Maybe a little bit of Irish fun…

I’m joining :

Hello Suzy,
What a creative centerpiece! The table looks ready for celebrating St. Paddy's day! Very nice! Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea today. I guess you're celebrating Autumn about now instead of Spring, eh? Have a lovely week.

The gold-painted pots are a really great touch, Suzy! I'm glad you had a good St. Pat's Day! I had my usual Bailey's Irish Cream and called it a day. This is a really pretty tablescape, and I love the Chevron placemats. They really pull the eye into the table. Great job!

Naughty leprechaun! I never would have noticed they were missing because everything else is wonderful. I like the moss rock idea! Linda

Lovely color combination with that pale pink and green. Those placemats are dramatic aren't they. I really like your centerpiece too. Dianne
