The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

A Celtic Tablescape. . .

Upon the arrival of the Farmhouse dining room chairs last Fall, I've been striving for a Frenchy Farmhouse Style On Crooked Creek. Tablescaping has been challenging for this Traditionalist!



Featuring my Majolica Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage dinnerware for St. Patrick's Day was the goal for this Celtic Tablescape. After several attempts ~ my finished style comes from an unexpected inspiration!



An heirloom, white eyelet tablecloth serves as the background.



Atop the eyelet tablecloth, I added brown quilted, scalloped place mats. The center of the place mat reminds me of a Celtic Knot!




Layering of our everyday white and sage green dinnerware elevates the Majolica Bordolla Pinherio cabbage dessert / salad plates giving them a stately presence.




We prefer our everyday flatware for its sleek lines, simple beaded edging and its heft in ones hand. Freshly pressed, white linen napkins keep distractions to a minimum.




Everyday bubble goblets paired with our bee stemware sets this tablescape for tomorrow mornings breakfast.




The unexpected inspiration for our Celtic Tablescape is an heirloom figurine ~ March Angel!




I placed our vintage March Angel figurine atop a candle jar lid disguised with a vintage miniature crocheted doily.









This delicate little "lassie" stands in front of a column of vintage white milk glass bud bases filled with soft yellow hued faux florals.






These combined elements are placed on a footed, wooden round tray to create an easily removable centerpiece for dining.





Simplistic,

Celtic Tablescape for St.Patrick's Day,

in the Farmhouse Style!





Until next time. . .


FYI:

During the month of March, I'm aspiring to connect each post On Crooked Creek with a Green theme. Keep in mind that the word green has multiple meanings. In this post the Green theme reduce is featured. By reducing the amount of decor items used in this Celtic Tablescape, On Crooked Creek kept a simple dining experience during meal times.
