Cabbage, Clover and Cream St. Patrick's Day Table

Welcome to my St. Patrick's Day Table!
We are celebrating with Cabbage, Clover and Cream!
Three things that the Irish are famous for!
I suppose we could have added Corned Beef - but that isn't as pretty!
I started with this crisp white, black and green plaid table cloth from Target, and built up from there.
I received this Blessing's Jar as a gift from my Stampin' Up upline, Linda.
It had a heart on the tag - so I decided to flip over the tag and stamp a little clover on the other side.
I didn't have any appropriate napkin rings - so I took a cue from the wood tag on the jar and made my napkin rings.  I took some wood circles I had in my stash and just stamped them with the same clover that can be found in the Amazing Life stamp set found here with some Call Me Clover ink, and then just tied them on with some jute.
 When I celebrate St. Patrick's Day, I do so not because I am Irish, but because it is my birthday!
This year is a big milestone - feeling a bit old - because it is the big 60! 
 I got my Golden Buckeye card in the mail the other day!
(something special for old Ohio residents!💚)
So for you,  I wish you much luck and many blessings on this St. Patrick's Day!
Have fun celebrating, as I will be enjoying my annual green beer!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. Happy birthday Ann! Welcome to the club, I hit that milestone last year. To mark the occasion I hosted an Unbirthday Party LOL! Feeling green with envy over that tablecloth and stemware. I have looked for years for dark green glasses to go with my Ireland Pursuit, everyday dishes to no avail! Napkin rings too. So this year, I made my own and painted shamrocks on Dollar Tree glasses. Your napkin rings are much nicer. A lovely table.

  2. Love all the details here, Ann! Especially the shamrocks clustered in the center and the shapely goblets. Oh and the Baileys, LOL! All around fabulous! Enjoy St. Patrick's Day

  3. So sweet! I changed the FB group photo to one of this table! I love all the cabbages and shamrocks!

  4. Happy Birthday on Sunday Ann! I have another special friend who's birthday is St. Pat's Day, as well as my sweet granddaughter who is turning 6. Such a festive day for a birthday! I LOVE black and white paired with green and it is so perfect for this holiday, you have combined so many textures and elements, your table is full of eye candy and wonderful details. The blessings jar is so sweet, and the napkin rings you designed couldn't be more perfect! The whole table is so cute, have a wonderful celebration! I love your blog header too!

  5. Jenna, Thank you for your sweet comments and the birthday wishes!!!

  6. Your table is gorgeous and perfect for the holidays (your birthday and St. Patrick's Day). This year I turn 65, talk about feeling old! Medicare here I come! Have a great birthday and just think you have enjoyed 60 years of living!

  7. This is one of the prettiest St. Patrick's Day tablescapes I've seen. Just beautiful! Pinned.

  8. Happy birthday Ann! Your table is beautiful with so many details. The pairing of black and white with green is one of my favorites. The blessings jar is such a great idea, I did this last summer with my granddaughter. Your napkin ring wood slices are perfect. Have a wonderful week!

  9. This is the BEST St. Patrick's Day tablescape I have seen!! Love all the little details! You are so talented!
