It's Easy "Bein" Green


It's time to pull

out the green to celebrate

St. Patrick's Day! 




Miss Sadie reminded me

that we have some new plates

perfect for celebrating in green.





One of my birthday presents this past January ~

colorful tartan plates by 

Two's Company.




A table  

for one this week.



Stacked with 

~ GREEN ~





Large dinner plate used as a charger. 

Eggplant ~ Espana by Tabletop Limited





My frequently used checkered

heart shaped salad plates by

Mesa International.





Perfectly topped with a 

shamrock bowl.





Paired with vintage 

mother of pearl flatware.





It's easy "bein" green

with dishes like these!





Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.

  5. The picture of Sadie is a cute reminder, Sarah! I LOVE your new tartan plaid plates. What a great birthday gift they were. I also adore the checkered plates and the shamrock shaped bowl. The frog is cute, too, and the mother of pearl flatware... sigh!!! xo

  8. Awww. Miss Sadie looks so cute in her green bow. LOVE your new tartan plates and the way you combined the checked heart plates and shamrock bowl. Is that a chocolate frog? Also love your dog planter on the bottom shelf of your bamboo table. Cute!
    Love that table, too. :) Great St. Patrick's Day post.

  9. Look at Sadie! Awwwwwww... so precious! And that little face does not like her green bow. LOL. The only dogs I have ever had who loved to wear scarves were my Min Pins. They would fight to see who got to put on her scarf first. It was hilarious. I am sure the next pup I get will not care one wit about looking jaunty and will hate having something around her neck. I am in love with your little Sadie!

    The dishes are cute, too! Love the new additions and how you have layered them. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Love the groggy prince dressed up and celebrating, too!

    Have been thinking of you and am knee deep in party prep. Why did I do it? Why? We are serving chicken salad, cucumber, and pimento cheese finger sandwiches, artichoke spread, lemon squares, sinful chocolate cookies, maybe cheeses straws, and who knows what else. I am trying to coordinate seven tables and their accoutrements plus quick changes on those. I have gone around the bend! ;-). Oh, Sarah! I wish you were here!

  10. I need to include a table for one every once in a while. I like that idea. The plaid plate is really special. Two's Company always offers the neatest designs a good prices. The Frog Prince is delectable. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

  13. GORGEOUS!

    We are going to a St. Patrick's Day party so I won't be setting the table. But, I am celebrating Pi Day on March 14. I am making strawberry pie and your lovely table setting tells me I need to find some really cute green bits for the table. I am going with a number theme, but it can also be green.

  16. Sarah, I love that plaid plate, and you're right, it's perfect for St. Patrick's Day. That chocolate frog is too cute - that's a lot of chocolate! What great shamrock bowls. Is that mother of pearl flatware different from what you usually use? It's so unique. Happy St. Patrick's Day! laurie

  46. Hi Sarah,

    Miss Sadie is so cute!! My sister had a cocker named Sadie many years ago. :)

    I love your St. Paddy's table setting -- it's so cheerful. I think I mentioned to you once before that I love, love tartan plaids. Your new plates are wonderful! They remind me of the Blackwatch plaid. Your plaid frame with a photo of Sadie is pretty, too. The chocolate frog is darling -- love his crown. :-D Your St. Pat's card is so pretty and so is the shamrock bowl. I bet lots of Irish eyes are smilin' in blogland right now; Kathleen knows how to host a great blog crawl.

    Thanks for your visit and sweet comments, Sarah. Have a great weekend!
