St. Patrick's Day

Blog Crawl

When Kathleen, author of Cuisine Kathleen, hosts a blog crawl, you want to be there - especially if it's a
St. Patrick's Day Party.

Over the years, I've seasawed back and forth between hosting large group St. Patrick's Day parties (centering around His Bar and plenty of beer) and spending a subdued March 17 at home (just the two of us). There's never been an in-between kind of celebration, so finding enough items to set a table for four wasn't easy.

Crammed in among the ivy and green lights is a gold candle holder
and a rubbery leprechaun warming his feet over the flame.

With a little juggling, four different patterned dishes
are turned into four green and white place settings.

It's a bit disjointed, but here's the total look.

I had hoped to use this buffet table decoration as a centerpiece, but it was too wide.
