St Patrick's Day Luncheon

My table is set for an early St Pat's luncheon of salad and corned beef sandwiches:
I have great memories of past St Patrick's Days......
...the parade in Boston when I was in high school....
....the parade in New York City when I was in college....
and most recently, the festivities at Coleman's Irish Pub in Syracuse
and of course, corned beef cooking all day long in the crock pot!
How do you spend St Patrick's Day?

  1. Patti, your pop of green on the B&W check looks great. Just yesterday I picked up a few pieces of pottery that feature a B&W harlequin with the green. Loved this combination. Now to get a table done. LOL

  3. I forgot....I was blog hopping the other day and fell in love with a buffet on www.thepurplepaintedlady.com -it so reminded me of you! It is called Funky Dresser/Buffet. It is painted with graphite ASCP and checkerboard tops. I would love to recreate that look if a could only find a buffet with those lines!

  4. Wow! The first picture is sort of like a optical illusion. It seems to wave in and out. (No, I haven't had too many Irish Coffees.)

    I like St. Patrick's Day too. Never been to a parade though.

  5. Black and white with a touch of green...perfect. One year I was in NYC on St. Patrick's Day and stood on the street to watch the parade. It was the first time I realized I was a little claustrophobic when it came to being closed in by crowds of people.

  9. Hi Patti!I am afraid that the extent of my celebrating St. Patrick's Day is just creating a tablescape, which BTW yours is very pretty.I like how you mixed in black and white dishes....Christine

  11. Hey Patti...your table is just adorable!! Love those checkered plates with the green. You've been in some great places to have celebrated Paddy's Day! Most of my most memorable celebrations were in Chicago...shamrocks on Dearborn, the river dyed green and partying all over the city. I know that Syracuse does it up. We even do here in Utica.

  13. Love this, Patty! Great color combo.
    Did you ever go to the Sail Loft in Boston, across from Faneuil Hall. I love their chowder. Son went to Holy Cross, so we would hit Boston while we were up there visiting.
    I marched in many a parade in the city. Still remember the blisters! :)
    See you the 13th?

  15. You have set the cutest table! I love the green with the black and white. I love St Pat's Day too. I always have a big corned beef and cabbage dinner. I know it's not a major holiday but it's just too fun to pass up.

  16. This table manages to be fun and sophisticated at the same time! Love how the green pops against black and white!

  17. I love the black and white checkered combination with the green. I always have corned beef in the crock pot too. It is my son's favorite meal. Joni

  18. That is so neat! I had to do a double take on your first photo as I thought I was seeing a green circle ON your checked dishes. LOL! Love this combination and your fabulous checked plates! Happy St. Patty's day to you!

  19. Let me know if you need more of those coloured bottle caps, I think I have some sources for them. Got the sewing stuff off the dining room table, this weekend (after I finish switching the closet out winter to spring) I plan to work on glass tile pendants. And knit. And work on kumihimo. And go the bead show. And start watching Season 1 of Mad Men DVDs. And try not to think about the fact that I have decided to give up diet soda (groan.) Have a great weekend.

  21. Thanks for stopping by my post on my St. Pat's china cabinet, because it brought me to yours. Love your table. The black is such a nice and different touch. That little bowl with the shamrocks is precious.
