Picnic on the Green-Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Come along with me for my 
"Picnic on the Green"

We'll be starting out here on this bit of emerald green tablecloth/grass on the warm side of a little hill.
The shamrock tablecloth has been laid out for us to be settin' on!

What's this now? We've stumbled across some Leprechauns 
so now they'll be havin' to grant us three wishes!

 I think this one has been rollin' around in some fairy dust!  
He's been enjoyin' a little too much beer!

 These guys are known to be full of mischief, but today they are behavin'!  I think they're a little worried we'll be stealin' their gold! 

An Irish Lass

Keeping an eye on things!

Erin go Bragh
Ireland Forever

The dishes are stacked on clay trays on a wicker charger
Another clay tray acts as a coaster for this pistachio nut muffin.

We'll be needin' some ale so we've brought along some pints to fill! 

Thank you for joining us at our
Picnic on the Green!

  34. This is really neat, Liz! I love the pottery chargers mixed with the wicker. That really gives the setting a lot of depth and texture as well as color. Your centerpiece is GREAT! That must have taken a lot of work...and it paid off!!! I really like how the clay tray from the place settings is repeated in the centerpiece.

    The pistachio muffin is a great touch! Only you!!!!

  35. You've got the Irish all covered, but what I love is how you've used the terra cotta pots. Very clever, indeed. Are they like what you would put under a planter?

  36. What a cute St. Patrick's Day table, Lie. Love your centerpiece!...Christine
