Since this scape is heavy on the green, I'm hoping that this will qualify for Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen's St. Patrick's Day blog crawl. When I told Kathleen I didn't own a single St. Patrick's Day item, she encouraged me to use green anyway. See Kathleen? This is just for you!
Now I realize Kathleen's party is not until March 13th, but we have the Great Spring'tacular Link Party Parade set to roll from Monday through Thursday next week, so I wanted to make sure I could participate at Kathleen's party as well.
Anyway, let's get to the table!
Let's see here...
I used a matelasse as a table cover.
Purple dinner plates from Better Homes & Gardens/Walmart a few years ago.
Green salad plates from Pier 1. They were even cheaper than the clearance sticker stated...I paid $1.18 each!
Circle of Kindness plates from Pfaltzgraff.
Green flatware is Cambridge from Home Goods.
Napkins, another steal, from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Napkins rings made by me, see my Pom Pom flower tutorial here.
Green bubble goblets from Target, quite a few years ago.
Want to see something silly about the Circle of Kindness plates? These were called Topsy Turvy because when you turn them upside down, they display a different character.
See what I mean? Same plate, upside down, different character!
Here are the rest of the plates...I didn't turn these upside down for you. Go ahead & use your imagination.
Silly looking characters, aren't they?
***edited to add...the box tells me that these characters have names, topsy turvy names....they are Lord & Lady Entwistle, Connor O'Riley & Riley O'Connor, Dolly & Molly Periwinkle and Patrick Shannon & Shannon Patrick.
For the center, a vase of purple tulips.
This sweet little house canister was a companion piece to the set, along with the mushroom salt & pepper shakers and the cow butter dish.
Something about this set just makes me smile.
Thank you for taking the time to visit me today. I really appreciate it. It may sound silly but blogland is sort of like a Circle of Kindness, isn't it?
