Come on in The Gazebo House....its PARTY TIME!!!
Cuisine Kathleen is hosting her 5th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl, Wednesday night, at 7 pm EST.
Whether you're Irish or not, come join the fun & see how GREEN we can get.
The Gazebo House is decorated to the hilt, with GREEN everywhere!
Our evening meals at the kitchen/sunroom table have been set all month with these lovely placemats, a gift from Ms. Kathleen herself. Thank you, Sweetie!
I just love them, with their delicate little shamrock embroideries & the tiny button accents. So Sweet!
I need to copy this idea & do up some napkins to match for next year.
We've been enjoying our Irish Soda Bread,
made with Kathleen's special recipe
My dining room table is set just like it is every year,
with my Chantilly Tiara GREEN glass dishes.
A new addition to the table is this lovely sugar shuttle that I stumbled across in a local consignment shop. It is MUCH prettier than the first one I bought, years ago!
I usually serve cashews in mine, but this year, I've used spice gumdrops instead. The little scoop makes it so nice to serve yourself just a few.
The two matching Muirfield crystal relish dishes are new,
as are the pretty GREEN votive candle holders.
The delecate silverware pattern is Onieda's Wildwood/Always, 1958. It goes well with the lightness of the dishes on the Waterford tablecloth.
My centerpiece is a gift from my little sister & I just LOVE it!
Each little round serving tray folds up to the center, making it very easy to store. So thoughtful of her to share her treasures with me. Thanks RuthE!!
Another shared treasure, which isn't mine to keep,
is this Celtic beautiful table topper. Cuisine Kathleen received it from Marigene, with the stipulation that it had to be passed on to another blogger after using it for the party.
I have my Celtic cross on it & it has been in our guest room all month long.
I wonder who it will go to next??
Thanks for visiting The Gazebo House & please go see all the other participants of the St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl.
Thank you, Kathleen for hosting such a fun gathering each year! Nobody does "Irish" better than YOU!!
I will also be linking up to Susan's Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursdays as well as The Tablescaper for her
