A Classy St. Patrick’s Day TableMarch 15, 2012 | FILED UNDER: Holidays / Parties
The days of the rowdy St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl might be over for you (they are long over for me!), but that doesn’t mean you still can’t have fun on St. Pat’s Day! Why not invite over some friends for some corned beef and cabbage, Guinness (or my favorite black and tans), and of course, a fun St. Patrick’s Day tablescape. 😉
Napkins wrapped in twine and finished with an artificial or real shamrock (from an oxalis plant):
Small pots of oxalis plants (real shamrocks!). I almost bought some of these at my grocery store last week but they didn’t look so great and I was afraid they wouldn’t make it until St. Patrick’s Day. I’ll have to see if they’ve gotten in a fresh shipment.
If you are really ambitious, you could stencil on a cool celtic border to a tablecloth, or make a table runner from brown craft paper and stencil on top of it.
Or you could make some easy shamrock stamps using a heart stamp (smart!), and stamp until your heart’s content…napkins, tablecloths, coasters, etc.
