Set the Table - St. Patrick's Day



St. Patrick's Day is a favourite holiday around here.

Although we are not Irish, we do enjoy celebrating the holiday.





We have managed to collect a few pieces of Belleek china over the years.
Some are ornaments, such as this watering can.








The plate in the foreground of the picture above is not Belleek.
It is by Global Design Connections by Kate Williams.

The white candlesticks are Skye McGhie.




The bell is also a Belleek ornament.



Another favoured piece is this older Belleek jug.  It has the gold/yellow glaze on the inside.




Green mercury glass candlesticks are from Ikea a number of years ago.





The tablecloth is a piece of green and grey plaid suiting that has been fringed at the edges.




The plate stack starts with a charger painted to resemble stone.

The bottom plate is Cambria in Celedon from Pottery Barn.

The white dinner plate and bread and butter plate are Richmond from Johnson Brothers.

The green and white plates are Green & White Toile by Maxcera.




The small vase is Belleek.




I love this shamrock cup and saucer by Aynsley.







Green-handled cutlery is from Ikea and the green & white striped napkins have no labels.  I have had them for a number of years.





An Irish blessing just for you.


Happy St. Patrick's Day.

  1. Somehow I've managed not to add Beeleek to my collection and it's probably a good thing because I like it so much, I would go whole hog and then the same old thing happens! This is a lovely table setting. I'll be making Paul Hollywood's soda bread and Rick will probably do a corned beef.All will be well.

    1. Sounds like a good supper. I don't have very much Belleek, Jeanie, just enough to enjoy the holiday. March is just around the corner - hurray!!

  3. St. Patrick’s Day, like Thanksgiving, is one of my favorite holidays. I suppose it’s because it’s all about food and conviviality more so than about gifts. And I guess that pretty much says everything about my waistline. This table is fantastic! I absolutely love everything about it, from the glorious stack of dishes, each with a different line, the fabulous flatware (oh boy do I need that flatware), the glassware, the napkins, and you are killing me with that Belleek watering can. I’m so glad I stopped by, this is a great post!

    1. Thank you so much, Pattie. It has been fun collecting the few pieces of Belleek that we have. St. Patrick's day is great in part because there is no gift giving.

  5. I do think Belleck is one of the more elegant chinas.... I do not own any but greatly admire it. St. Patricks Day is my hubby’s birthday so it’s always a special time around our house and he thinks he’s Irish just because he’s born on the 17th ( ha ha)..You Belleck pieces are beautiful an I love the little Irish Blessing ....

  8. My third sweetie was born on 3/17. We've always called her our lucky charm. She'd love a green table setting. I've not come across pretty plates in green but now I've got to find them! Most of the ones I see are just cutesy and I want pretty and vintage. Love your table.

  12. Very pretty and the stone painted charger is great. That's something I should learn to do instead of buying new ones. Thank you for sharing with us at Celebrate Your Story and have a great weekend.

  13. Adorable, Barbara. I love your Belleek but I only have one piece. I was sure I had a Christmas ornament but couldn't find it anywhere. Your china is darling and perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Thanks for linking up to Keep In Touch.
