St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Tablescape

So the amazing weather here has been short lived. It was 86 in Mount Dora on Sunday and I came home with a few treasures and my face sun kissed. I spoke to my Mom on Monday and she was buying plants for her container gardens. She’s putting out spring wreaths and a bunny that I’ve made clear to my sisters already has my name on it. I’ve been searching for my own spring inspiration on Pinterest I have a few ideas that I’m really excited to start working on next week. Until then, I’m restocking my booth with spring items, snuggling with my sweet Jelly Bean and taking a look back at my St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Tablescape from last year.

It all started when I found this shamrock image on Pinterest via www.spoonful.com. You can find my St. Patrick’s Day Celebration Board via Pinterest here I printed the images on yellow card stock. I know what you may be thinking, “Shamrocks are green CoCo.”

But I plan to make these shamrocks gold, so I really want to make sure the gold glitter glass stands out. I coated the shamrocks with glue and added a generous helping of glitter glass.

While the shamrocks were drying, I brought out the blue and white ticking fabric and folded it in two parts to make a table runner.

I added a vintage breadboard,

A galvanized metal pail,

And filled the pail with my collection of vintage rolling pins and added simple ironstone cream and sugar containers.

My favorite white napkins,

And placed the gold shamrock in the center of each plate.

Even looking at this St. Patrick’s Day inspired tablescape I can see how my style and tastes are evolving from one year to the next, which really makes me exited about owning my style.

Coincidentally, I left the breadboard, galvanized pail, vintage rolling pins and ironstone on the kitchen table all throughout the spring and summer seasons last year. I missed it so much I decided to bring it out again this year after all the holiday decorations had been put away. I have since added burlap pillows made from old feed sacks, chairs from IKEA and no sew drop cloth curtains. It’s the little things.

Many blessings,

CoCo

      You’re so sweet Vicki, thank you! It is nice to be able to use old things in different ways and to be able to reign in your style – not that it’s helped my closets, mind you. Hugs, Coco

      You’re so right, Bobbi! I’ve been in love with ticking and vintage china for years. I’m definitely looking for more ways to use it as I update things around this little island cottage. Hope you’re having a great week too. Hugs, Coco

    What pretty tablescape! I love your china and it’s perfect for a St. Patrick’s day decor. Combining the glittery shamrocks with the rustic pail and bread board makes a lovely combination.
