Elegant St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape
I like to set a St. Patrick’s Day tablescape to acknowledge the holiday. This one with all of the gold accents turned out quite elegant. March 17th will be sneaking up on us soon. A family dinner set at at themed table like this is a great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
Set a St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape in elegant gold and green with a few simple nods to the holiday.

Begin by setting the table:
Taking a table from simple to fabulous is a joy to me. Trying out different plate stacks, different stemware, all of it just gets my creative juices flowing. Gold beaded placemats were an easy choice to begin.This set of tidbit plates with their unique celtic knot patterns were the perfect plates for my tablescape.
If you can’t find themed plates like these, green salad plates can fill in and still help you set a pretty table.
Green charger plates were topped with gold dinner plates. Celtic knot tidbit plates can easily be set aside to use for some Irish Soda Bread. If you just keep the color scheme in green and gold, you acknowledge the St. Patrick’s Day celebration. If you have basic white dinner plates those can easily be substituted for the gold dinner plates.
I kept the St. Patrick’s Day decor simple with the plates and the napkin rings being the only real themed items on the tabletop. I do like to use a holiday like this to host an impromptu dinner party. It is easy to find white flowers in the grocery stores. I added chrysanthemums, alstroemeria, delphinium, and roses all in white in each of their own vases in the middle of the table.
Even though the primary color of my dining room is blue, the greens of St. Patrick’s day work well. The greens complement the pattern in my chairs beautifully. A pair of goblets, one with a gold swath across it and one rimmed in green and gold will suffice for water and wine.
The Completed Look:
Any green goblets would easily suit an elegant St. Patrick’s day table setting. Find links to source some of the items I used to style this gorgeous table at the end of this post.
I paired a pair of green napkins and tucked them into a shamrock napkin ring. White napkins could be paired with green napkins for a similar look. Green placemats or a table runner are another great idea for your St. Patrick’s celebration.
Each place setting is situated on a gold beaded placemat, topped with a green charger plate, a gold dinner plate and topped with those special celtic knot tidbit plates. You can see I did not use a lot of table decorations for this more elegant look.
I think the individual vases are an easy way to make beautiful centerpiece.

This is gorgeous Chloe! The celtic knot plates look fabulous atop the gold dinner plates! LOVE it!
Thank you Jenna. The only problem with those gold plates is they have to be hand washed! I think I can handle it!
I really love this. I am Irish, and I find this to be a really perfect homage to the feast of the heritage and the patron saint!
Thank you so much Rita!
