The Perfect Irish Supper
This time last year we were celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a feast of beer, potatoes and a healthy side of… flowers!
I can’t help but smile when I see these festive place settings that are just perfect for a St. Patrick’s themed meal. Mashed potatoes, corned beef and cabbage will all be served at my table this year!
In case you missed it last time: To make the potato place setting, scoop out the center of a large baking potato and fill with 2-3 stems of green spider mums. Insert a nametag and place on each guest’s dinner plate.
No celebration is complete without some festive room décor to set the mood from the moment the guests arrive. This year, I couldn’t help but take last year’s potato and floral bouquet to a new level!
And of course you can always use this idea from last year to create the perfect tabletop décor. To create the “cabbage” vase simply remove a few outer leaves from a head of cabbage and place around a short beverage glass.
Just have fun with it and be creative. Remember, everyone is Irish on March 17th!
