It wasn't St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Weekend!
We started with a luncheon on Friday
An Irish Farmhouse luncheon
A centerpiece of orange tulips and one at each place in wee Waterford vases
And continued into Saturday
When we had company for tea
in the breakfast room
The orange tulips in the wee Waterford vases make a great centerpiece
And all the dishes are "green"!
And on St. Patrick's Day itself . . .
We had company for dinner
Eight of us. The wee Waterford vases and tulips once again are a centerpiece
And there's plenty of bare table because big platters of corned beef and vegetables will be put there
when we sit down to eat
But plans change and a guest brought a shamrock and someone else brought green beads
and so the orange tulips got relegated to the breakfast room once again
And shamrock and green held sway as a centerpiece.
And I must say that they did an admirable job at making a festive St. Patrick's Day table!
And we ate . . .
A Blarney Cheese and onion tart
and Top of the Tower Irish Soda bread on Friday
Festive tea treats on Saturday
What St. Patrick's is all about
The corned beef and cabbage
(and carrots, potatoes and onions)
It's Monday and I'm sharing our St. Patrick's Day celebrations with Yvonne at Stone Gable for What's On the Menu Monday
