St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape

March is a very busy month! There’s baseball season, St. Patrick’s Day, and this year Easter is also in March. So that means I’ll be changing my table a lot this month! Fun! I hope y’all are enjoying my table settings as much as I enjoying doing them.
I’ve always loved to set my table. Shortly after we moved, I was at my neighbor’s house. She had her table set and I commented on how pretty it looked. She said “do you know who inspired me to set my table?” I replied “no, who?” “You did!” She said. Since I did not know her until we moved into this neighborhood I was kind of surprised about that. She went on to tell me that around 20 years ago she and her husband looked at a house we had for sale. I had my table set. She said it looked so pretty that it inspired her to go home and set her table and she’s done it ever since. It made me so happy that I inspired her and I hope I will inspire y’all too. Whether it’s to set your table, paint furniture, or just be creative with what you have.
Before I start working on a project I try to always pray that God will work through me, order my steps and guide my thoughts. Because without Him, I am nothing! My hope is to inspire you to use your God given ability to make your home beautiful!

Today is Tablescape Thursday on one of my favorite blogs. Every Thursday, Between Naps on the Porch does a blog party. This is when one blog allows other blogs to link to their site. If I have recently changed my table, I like to post the new tablescape on Thursday. This way I can join the blog party and you guys can click on the link and see all of the beautiful tables there.

8 Festive Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

With this tablescape I’m bringing the outside into my dining room! Not really, but I do want my table to look like spring time! Easter is just around the corner, but in the meantime I wanted to have a St. Patrick’s day theme. I decided to go all green and white to keep things simple.

I left the white tablecloth on and the white chargers. I also wanted to use the lace runner but I wanted to add a little color to that.

I found this tiny green and white ribbon at Hobby Lobby.

I ran it through the open weave of the lace.

Then I added a few other touches of green.

Greenery and cabbages in the center with candlesticks and green Shamrock place mats (felt pieces I bought at the Dollar Tree).

I used a white charger plate and a green leaf dinner plate.
I found this Shamrock printed ribbon at Hobby Lobby and used it to tie round the salad plate just for a little pattern.

I bought 2 & 1/2 yards of this green and white fabric at Hobby Lobby. It has seahorses on it but I’m going to layer it under the white napkins I already have so you won’t notice them. I was just going for color. I will use this on my beach tablescape this summer as well.

Here’s the finished table.

I hope y’all are inspired to make every day beautiful!
