St. Patty's Day Tablescape and a Party

I've designed an informal St. Patrick's Day setting trying to get into the spirit of St. Patrick's Day. 

I used my Fiestaware in a variety of colors: Kelley Green, Lemongrass, Turquoise, and White. 

Fiesta baking dishes were used for baked potatoes.

The centerpiece consisted of greenery picks and St. Patrick's Day hats and clovers from Trees and Trends. 

Angel food cake and strawberries made a dessert for a birthday celebration for my husband. 

A green and white St. Patrick's Tartan was used as a base for the centerpiece. 

Food for the birthday party included: grilled pork chops, buttered carrots, sweet and sour slaw, baked beans, and baked potatoes. 

Another table setting for St. Patrick's Day included a new quilted table runner I made using scraps from quilting projects. 

Kiss Me, I'm Irish!

This is Ernie, my cat and assistant quilter.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  3. Great job on that festive table runner! I like that centerpiece with the Irish hats on the tartan fabric. The food looks super delish and I hope your hubby had a happy birthday. What a fabulous sign that is with all the Irish sayings/words - perfect décor item for the occasion.

  4. I love your table, the colors of the fiesta ware are beautiful. Love the runners, too. And your kitty cat! Visiting from Kathleen's blog crawl, and a new follower!

  5. What a charming tablescape. I love all your wonderful details. The cat is adorable and not to be excluded. Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day.

  6. You have all the green shades of Ireland here and they look so good together. I'm always impressed by quilters! Your runner is very pretty, and the kitty is adorable with his Irish outfit! Linda

  7. I love the table runner- such talent! All that food is making me so hungry. Your centerpiece is cute and festive. Looks like you had a great party. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  8. Well ... Ernie doesn't look exactly excited about his bow ... but that green sure makes his eyes beautiful! Pretty tables ... thanks for sharing.

  9. Joann,
    I l o v e when bloggers show their collections in amazing ways,
    as you have by using your Fiesta ware for this festive St. Patrick's Day Tablescape, dear one!
    Ernie doesn't seem to be as thrilled, though!
    His photo drew me to your blog.
    I love your quilted table runner, too.

  10. Beautiful table runner! Yummy looking food...
    Happy SPD♣

  11. Love your Fiestaware and your table runner is darling. I am a quilter as well. Thank you for sharing with Share Your Cup. I'm sure it's not intentional, but I'm not seeing a link back to the party.

  12. Everything is so festive.

    I feel a little guilty because I didn't even remember to wear green today!

    Thanks for sharing at SYC.
