St.Patrick's Day Party (10 photos)
hope that everyone had a wonderful St.Patrick's Day! I wanted to share a St.Patrick's day dinner I created. I cooked traditional Irish food and used a green and white color scheme for my table.
Inspiration: I knew that my St.Patrick's day table would feature the standard St.Patrick's day items such as; shamrocks, St.Patrick's day hats & shamrock garland. I had the green & white polka dot picture frame in my bedroom and I knew it would look perfect on the table. I love how the picture frame looks with the glitter shamrock inside. I also loved the Crate&Barrel Chase Green Plate and thought the plates would be a nice addition to the table.
Décor: I decided to use a white tablecloth for the table so that the green decorative items would pop on the table. I also decided to put the shamrock garland in the apothecary jar to add some height to the table. I scattered some glitter green shamrocks to the table, which gave the table some sparkle. I also bought some beautiful green & white flowers from Whole Food for the table. I found the "Lucky" cup at Party City and thought that the green & white lollipops would look good in the cup. As a final touch I added some green votive candles, which added some light to the table.

I knew that I wanted traditional Irish dishes my St.Patrick's day menu. When I was in Ireland 2 years ago my friend & I had a delicious Beef & Guinness stew in a pub in Galway and I knew that I had to find a recipe to recreate that amazing stew.
