The Look of Green




I have a love affair with green dishes.  Any shade, any shape... I will make room for it in my collection if I find green dishes when I'm shopping...

So, when Kathleen reminded us of the St Patrick's Day tablescaping crawl, I knew it was time to set a table...a green dish table....

I hope you enjoy the tablesetting as much as I enjoyed setting it....

It all started with these 2 cut crystal champagne glasses that I found at the thrift store for $1.50..They match the crystal I already have so it was a real find..  Cherrywood by Wallace/now Gorham.



But the sun would not cooperate this morning..LOL  and I took them as fast as I could when the sun was shining..Oh well, here is what I got......







It's good to be back doing a tablescape.  I hope you all get some inspiration to set a pretty table for those you love....




Happy St Patrick's Day..

And go visit Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen and see all the pretty tables.....

Love,
Mona

  7. Emerald green to honor The Emerald Isle...seems right! It surely is beautiful. Are those flowers snowdrops? It must be nice to have a few early flowers again.

  9. Mona, Your tablescape is beautiful and the light is perfect for the special glow you achieve. I love snow drops and they look so perfect with your St. Patty's table. The little green spot on each petal accents your green dishes perfectly. You know I love fresh flowers. What a lucky find for the champagne glasses. The emerald green plate is stunning and the ivy plates look great with them. Your lace tablecloth provides the perfect backdrop for an elegant tablescape.

  14. Mona, like you I can always find a spot for green dishes, even if I have to get rid of something else! Your table for two is beautifully elegant. What a beautiful deep shade of green the salad plates are. Love the lace tablecloth, too. Great find and price on the crystal.
    Enjoy the weekend...spring is here!
