A Simple St. Patrick’s Day Table Setting

I am not having a big get together for St. Patrick’s Day, there is just too much going on with Easter coming so soon afterwards! A simple dinner for four at the nook in my kitchen. This is the most popular spot in the kitchen, even beating out the island for the place to hang out and gather.

The tablecloth I decided to use for this is a decidedly un-St. Patrick’s Day tablecloth. I chose this Portmeirion Botanic Garden pattern round tablecloth to use on my small marble table in my kitchen nook. There was just enough green to make this work with my place settings.

Next it was time to bring in the gold! A St. Patrick’s Day table wouldn’t be complete without a pop of gold! You know that elusive gold to be found at the end of the Irish rainbow? For charger plates I selected these gorgeous antiqued golden chargers.

I was introduced to these beautiful chargers by my friend, Mary from Life at Bella Terra. When I had the opportunity to help style a table for a dinner party in her orchard when we used a set of similar chargers. You can see more of that table here. I was able to track down four of these beautiful chargers by the artist Lesley Roy. You may be able to find some of these like I did on similar online resale websites.

On top of the chargers I added dark green charger plates and then clear acrylic chargers with gold beaded edges. The place settings are these beautiful Green Arbor dinner plates and salad plates by Caskata.

These are so versatile, here they add the green for a St. Patrick’s Day table, but you can see here how they also set a stunning holiday table.

Wine glasses with a gold swatch on them held two toned green cloth napkins to add some elevated green color to the table as guests arrive.

Modern gold flatware complements the other gold accents on the table.

I set a couple of shamrock shortbread cookies on each salad plate as a little treat for each guest.

A centerpiece with a shimmering golden bowl is filled with beautiful green hydrangea blossoms.

Adding chocolate to the cookies makes them a little more special.

Hydrangea Centerpiece:

When I spotted these beautiful green hydrangeas at Trader Joes I knew I had the perfect flowers for a St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece! I used a floral pillow cage set in a golden bowl to easily arrange the hydrangea blooms!

It is very easy to arrange the hydrangeas by slipping the stems down through the holes in the floral cage. I made sure that I slid the stems through both one of th holes on the top layer and the bottom layer of the cage.

I continued to fill in around the edge of the bowl with the hydrangeas. The hydrangeas look like huge clusters of four leaf clovers!

A little treat:

What would St. Patrick’s Day be without at least one little shamrock? How about a sweet treat of a shamrock? I ordered in these shamrock shortbread cookies on Amazon and then dipped them in melted chocolate to add a little “extra” to them.

Recreate this table with these items:

  1. Chloe, those green hydrangeas are so gorgeous. And that dinnerware from Caskata is just stunning. I hope you sent a link to this post to them. Thanks for the shout out and I am thrilled you found these Leslie Roy chargers. I think I like your patterns more than mine. The beaded charger plates are such fun too. We will probably have a dinner party for Julianna’s birthday (the 17th) and will take your great ideas and use them here in Phoenix!
