The Luck of the Irish

This week I decided to join the Irish and set a 'green' table! I had this lovely white geranium in a terracotta pot so thought that would be nice for the centrepiece.

I really liked the look of the timber table, rustic chargers and the terracotta. I started with these pale green candles I had placed in small terracotta pots along with a crisp white linen napkins but after I uploaded the photos I thought they looked way too pale so I reset the table and used pink flower candles instead. Much better! 

I used a hand painted terracotta platter to hold the coffee pot and cups.

After I had looked at these photos on my computer I was amazed to see that I had captured the 'blue hour' in the window in the backgroud! That's the first time I have been able to do that and I hadn't realised!!

I also realised I had forgotten to add the green stemmed wine glasses to the first table. Maybe I should have two goes at setting a table each week!!

Hello Suzy,

Your refreshing white on white, with Irish green and a whisper of pink is all so delightfully, 'St Paddy's', yet clean and simple in colour selection and choice of china.., Love it all!

What a creative tablescape vignette!.., I especially enjoyed how you so artfully argganged your napkins with the votive candles nestled so charmingly within!

Thanks so much for joining Pam and I once again for our TTTT and also for my 74th, 'Tuesday Tea For Two'.

Have a marvelous and blessed week!

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

Such a rustically beautiful table setting, I love it! Great ideas too, the flower pots with the candles in them. You are right, the pink is just right. Beautiful.

Oh how cute! And what a great little girls tea party ideas you've given me. Think how cute this would be with some cute children tea sets - and seeds in the pots instead - that the little girls could have fun planting after they drink their "tea." What fun! Thank you! :)
