Happy St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  This week mom put together a beautiful table with dessert station.  Green and white is such a simple, elegant and pretty color combination, especially for Spring!  Let's start with dessert.  Mom made some yummy treats. 

You need shamrocks so why not have them in cookie form?

Creme de Menthe brownies are a staple from my childhood.  Love those!!

And a variation on mom's raspberry tartlets - lime tartlets.  Mmmmm!  I love these.  Lime is a flavor I'm really liking more and more as I get older.

Crisp white linens are on the dessert table and again on the dinner table.  These have a beautiful green embroidery.

On the table are simple white plates with green depression glass from the farm.  The flatware is vintage 1970s that we used (and still use!) every day.

Our shamrock plant makes an appearance again, but this time we took cuttings and put them in these sweet little bud vases.  Everyone gets their own piece of Spring.

I love this candelabra.  The green candles are the perfect color for it.

Have a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day!
