I wanted to join the fifth annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl at Cuisine Kathleen this year, so I started by pulling out my vintage green glassware. The water glasses originally belonged to my husband's grandparents, and for Christmas this year, my mother surprised me with the little "liquor cocktails" to match. The pattern is by Anchor Hocking and is called either "Burple" or "Inspiration." I love the deep emerald green.
last year's St. Patrick's Day table I used the same glasses with my grandmother's wedding china, so I wanted to do something different this year. I remembered some Williams-Sonoma salad plates with a green and gold pattern, so pulled those out. I layered them on top of a plain white dinner plate and a larger gold ceramic plate. I used plain white placemats and white napkins with a simple cutwork design and added our silver flatware.
