A Look Back : Lucky in Life ~ Celebrating Green at the Table

Next Thursday I look forward to joining in
with a group of tabletop stylists for a
St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop.
We hope you will stop by for 
some St. Patrick's Day inspiration.

Today, let's take a look back at last year's 
Celebrating Green at the Table

I was thrilled to join a group of talented tabletop stylists 
to share our table inspiration for St. Patrick's Day.

Neither my husband nor I are Irish.  
We don't officially celebrate St. Patrick's Day
but I usually bring out the green for a tablescape.
I titled my table, Lucky in Life! 
It's all about celebrating with gratitude for all we have.

The past two years, I've been lucky to snag a few of the 
limited edition Lucky Check Clover plates
produced by MacKenzie-Childs in Aurora, NY.
They are currently offering a limited number again this year.
Time is running out, so if you want one, order it now.

These shamrock plates are absolutely some of my 
favorite pieces and continue to spark inspiration 
for my St. Patrick's Day tabletops.

Lucky Me, to have some of these charming 
handmade and hand decorated shamrocks.
The gold lustre embellishments add stunning detail.

I filled our Olfaire Cabbage Leaf tureen with grocery store blooms.
I love the Raffine Dianthus for a touch of lavender 
among the mass of green and white.

Green Ball Dianthus ~ Green Ranunculus ~ White Alstroemeria 
I also added kale, a tip from my friend, 
Mary @ Home is Where the Boat Is. 
Great filler for less than a dollar a bunch!

I immediately pulled out my Crown Linen Design 
dusty pink ruffled 
velvet placemats.

They made the perfect base for my Mackenzie-Childs stack.
Courtly Check Charger
Chelsea Luster Luncheon Plate
Lucky Green Check Clover
Irish Crystal Stem

I used my Crown Linen Damask Silver napkin rings 
with Crown Linen black and white check napkins.

The beautiful Chelsea Luster
 plates are dated 2005.

Lusterware was popular in Victorian England and uses
copper luster that becomes iridescent with age.

The flower details are hand applied decals.
Do you see the buzzing bee?

The Irish Coffee mugs were a lucky Goodwill find.
They are rimmed in gold and have an 
etched shamrock for good luck!

Cheers to Luck and pretty dishes!

Thank you for stopping by.
I hope you'll leave a comment and let
me know how you celebrate.

A big shoutout and thank you to 
for organizing these group hops.
Hope to see you March 10th.



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.


  1. Oh, Sarah, this is so pretty. I really don't do anything for St. Patrick's Day (probably one of the few holidays I sit out). It has some rather sad memories for me. But seeing your lovely table and fabulous centerpiece makes me wonder if perhaps I should!

  2. Sarah, I love all of your St.Patrick’s Day tablescapes. You have so many beautiful MKC pieces and I enjoy seeing how you style them. My husband and I both have Irish ancestry. We were fortunate enough to visit Ireland and we so hope to return again 💚

  3. Such a fabulous table Sarah, and I have been trying hard to resist those MKC shamrock plates, they really are special! I love the Lucky in Life theme of your beautiful table and your flower arrangement is stunning! No Irish in my family tree, but St. Patrick's Day is a fun holiday to celebrate with perhaps some green beer or Irish stew! I am looking forward to our hop next week and all the pretty tables ☘️

  4. Gorgeous table Sarah. Your florals are so pretty. Love, love the lucky clover plates. Great find on those pretty mugs. You have some of the prettiest accessories. Always a pleasure to visit. I am so looking forward to joining you March 10th.

  5. Simple gorgeous. I love your flower bouquet.

  6. I love your plate stack with the Chelsea Luster! I think it's one of the prettiest Mackenzie-Childs patterns ever!

  7. You really do know how to celebrate with the green for St. Patrick's Day. I always appreciate your beautiful pieces and flowers. I always love celebrating this holiday, I do have Irish heritage from my mom. I look forward to your next table setting for the blog hop. Happy weekend Sarah.........

  8. The lucky checks clover plates are charming, and the flowers and greenery add to the lovely and festive St. Patrick's Day table setting.

  9. Loving all the lucky green vibes! I am happy to feature you at this week's All About Home Link Party!

    Thanks for sharing!

  10. This is amazing! I would love it if you would share it on the Fabulous Friday Link Party this Friday, and every Friday after that. You can find the link on my website. Hugs and blessings to you.


Thank you to each of you who take the time to leave a comment. I read and appreciate each and every one and will respond to any questions. Your notes are the only way I know who has stopped in for a visit.
