Pot of Gold Tablescape

Next week is Cuisine Kathleen's 5th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl, and we are planning to participate. So, we decided to do a "practice" table this week. With the time honored theme of "a pot of Gold" in mind, the table was set.......
Over view of the table

The place setting

Needless to say, Gold Iconic by Wallace Silver is one of our favorite flatware patterns
First layer of the place setting is a black charger (Indigo Black Color Spectrum by Mikasa)

For the second layer, Pat used another favorite - Gold Leaf from Pier 1

A Shamrock green Fiestaware luncheon plate is next

Pat topped the setting with a coordinating green napkin wrapped around a gold beaded one and held together with a black napkin ring

Close up of the five piece place setting - Gold Iconic

Pat made sure that everyone had an individual "pot of gold" - tiny bowls are from Waechtersbach

Gold-like glassware is actually light amber crackled glasses from Pier 1

Honestly, we have other napkin rings but this one actually looks the best
Black candle stick is from Westmoreland Glass Company

Gold glittery votives are from Pier 1 last Christmas

Huge bowl from Waechtersbach holding "gold" sits on a much smaller bowl to raise it

Smaller bowls with "gold" sit on the table

  5. Great table and I was sooo taken by those gorgeous candlesticks! I have never seen anything like them. Wow. Love all of your green and gold - any welcomed guest at that table would feel lucky!!

  6. Great way to carry out a theme! I really like the fact that, aside from the "gold" coins, the table is set with non-themed items to create a pretty and inviting table for St. Patrick's Day!
