Meet me at the end of the rainbow for a St. Patrick’s Day party tablescape filled with whimsical décor ideas. Shamrocks, gold coins, rainbows, and a leprechaun enliven an event fit for fairy Queen Mab herself. So pull up a chair and delight in the sights of a table set for the most fortunate of sorts… lucky you!
“May your pockets be heavy— your heart be light,”
A mischievous leprechaun caught gold-handed must offer 3 wishes in exchange for his freedom… so there he will stand waiting as part of the centerpiece until all has been thought through when the meal has ended.
“And may good luck pursue you each morning and night.”
Light shines through the trees illuminating a diaphanous fabric rainbow and trailing shamrock banner acting as the harbingers of good fortune.
“May you have all the happiness and luck that life can hold—“
Glasses with golden basket weave patterns hold all the liquescent happiness a pixie could delight in. Layers of earthenware plates are providentially heaped upon chargers reminiscent of gleaming gold coins. Napkin rings seemingly made of celestial rainbows fortunately hold useful cloth napkins. Wooden handled golden flatware will soon carry all the delicious colcannon an elf could devour.
“And at the end of all your rainbows may you find a pot of gold.”
Capturing the luck at the end of the vibrant rainbow is an antique wooden farm bucket overflowing with gilt coins and auspiciously sprouting felt shamrocks.
“Wherever you go and whatever you do, may the luck of the Irish be there with you.”
Lush emerald green grass ostensibly growing from rich soil conveys the feeling of Ireland. Dotting the table’s landscape are propitious shamrocks and glistening coins heralding the luck of the Irish.
♣ Now let us raise a glass and toast “Sláinte!” (“slawn-cha”) to our health as they do in ancestral Ireland!
P.S. The leprechaun is actually a vintage Mark Roberts Christmas fairy whose seafaring Neptune features have been temporarily disguised with shamrocks for the occasion.
