What is your green tablescape design to welcome friends and family for a green St. Patrick's Day meal?
I hope you're inspired by my Éirinn go Brách homage to Irish influence.
Just like every good garden design, good tablescape design also tells a story …
In these table designs, I used whimsy and legacy. It was fun to use the potato conceit ~ as a metaphor to help tell that part of the Irish story;
gold coins as only those leprechauns can bestow;
books because the Irish are arguably the best storytellers;
castles ~ as told by silver music boxes ~ that I also use as a surprise serving dish for appetizers ~ a;pmg with green table gardens ~ here I used oxalis or the “shamrock” plant, green carnations, moss, grocery store blossoms, and orchids, and mix real with faux ~ and the promise of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. 🌈
I like to mix the green color theme with punches of purple or pink to create a nuanced and balanced composition.
More Green Table Style Ideas
Here, I use a gold and green color palette. So day or night, the table decor is glittering..
Some years I use a green tablecloth. And a runner. Or placemats.
I do like using double napkins for a more glamorous pouf of style. I use napkin rings or ribbons… The napkin rings and name card holders are a lovely design touch that amplifies the story and seasonal look ~ plus it makes your guests feel extra special.
I also use a mix of glassware: colored and crystal for water, wine, and champagne stemware.
Please enjoy these tablescapes, brimming with Irish linens and in some cases, fabric remnants 🙂~ green plants, Irish crystal, green glitter that I sprinkle freely on the tablecloth (can’t ever have too much glitter!), whimsical things that catch my fancy and delight our guests.
I use the Louis Sherry tins in many of my tablescapes ~ they are available in a variety of colors.
The the green orchids from Koppert Cress ~ will make you weep 💚.
I hope I’ve inspired you with some glamorous and elegant St. Patrick’s Day, green tablescape ideas…
