Let’s continue the tour with my St. Patrick’s Day table decor…

Welcome to my kitchen!

As always, I kept it simple with my table setting decor.  Rather than shop for a bunch of new things, I challenged myself to create a table mostly with things I already owned.

Though, I did buy the daisies and the shamrock plant.  I’ll try again to keep the plant alive…although the one I bought a few years ago didn’t make it very long.  No surprise there with my black thumb!

St. Patrick's Day table decor with green and white

Lately, I’ve been thinking about buying some colored glassware.  Recently, I’ve seen some cute ones and I love the way they add a nice splash of color to a table.  Then again, so do these S. Pellegrino bottles used as vases!  Don’t you think they’re perfect for St. Patrick’s Day?!

Green and white place settings for St. Patrick's Day

Generally, I like to keep a subtle approach to holiday decorating.  For St. Patrick’s Day, I used just some simple greens and whites…

White plates with green and white checked napkin with a shamrock on the napkin ring

And as a nod to the holiday, I created some super easy DIY napkin rings.  To make them, I just cut up some cardboard paper towel rolls, wrapped a piece of wired burlap ribbon around them and drew a shamrock with a Sharpie.  So easy!  If you want some more DIY napkin ring ideas, be sure to check out –  How to Make Easy DIY Napkin Rings.

Yes, you might have noticed that I have two napkins on each place setting.  We’re messy eaters…just kidding.  Actually, the white napkins are the “real” napkins and the green and white checked ones are just pieces of fabric rolled up.  When I was decorating the table, I needed more color so I cut up some fabric I had laying around. 

Like I said, I didn’t want to spend a lot to create my St. Patrick’s Day table decor!

With all this green and white, I’m really getting excited about spring!

Shamrocks and checks for St. Patrick's Day

Besides all the green and white, I threw in some texture for interest…a wicker basket for the plant, some twine on the bottles and my go-to seagrass placemats.  In fact, I just wrote a blog post on 7 Ways to Set a Table with Natural Fiber Placemats.

  1. I LOVE you table! It is so clean and fresh looking. I was so surprised at how you made the napkin rings. I think they look terrific and maybe, hopefully, will try my hand at making those. The green bottles look awesome too. I have done that with blue bottles and a yellow and blue table. I think I am off to buy some Pellegrino. Very pretty runner too. You have a magnificent kitchen!

    1. Thank you so much, Ruthie! What a lovely comment! I’ve never used colored bottles for vases before so I’m glad you like them…now I’ll be on the lookout for some pretty blue ones as well! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Shelley, I honestly must admit that I took a cue from you in that your simply classic style inspired me for my own table for this holiday. I knew you would have a table that would state the apparent feast with easy-going style, and it does. I love the shamrock plant and looked for one myself (prior years I was lucky to find one, but not this time). I think your choice of the Pellegrino bottles was a good one. Opting for colorful glassware is a deep rabbit hole that could be hard to get out of, lol, especially when visiting the Dollar Tree! The green & white napkins and small shamrock on the DIY napkin rings are just enough added color. As always, it’s a pleasure being at the table with you!

    1. Thanks so much, Rita! Yes, I see we both went with the understated look. Regarding the shamrock plant, I found mine at the grocery store. I think it was around seven dollars so not a huge investment for something I’ll probably kill! Great hopping with you again!

  3. Lovely table Shelley. Sometimes simple is best. The Shamrock plant is perfect. I looked for one at my local grocery store, but no luck.
    Your napkin rings are darling. A wonderful feeling to create something so pretty. The Pellegrino bottles are a nice touch being green and all. So cost efficient. Always a pleasure to join you. Happy March.

    1. Thank you Linda! I bought my shamrock at the grocery store and they were just putting them out. Keep looking! I’m glad you liked how my table turned out – definitely a budget friendly design!

    1. Thanks Jenna! All the green definitely has me in the mood for spring! Great to hop with you!

  4. Fun, festive table, Shelly. Great idea to use the green glass bottles! Your green checked napkins with the clever shamrock napkin ring are the perfect touch. Happy St. Pat’s Day. Fun hopping with you!

  5. Shelley I love your approach to table decorations. This one is like a breath of fresh air. In fact, when I saw the first picture, I thought you had a new dining table and white chairs. It was like seeing the table and background kitchen for the first time.
    Your attention to the details; green recycled vases on a simple white runner – those napkin rings! What a great idea. My mind is buzzing with ideas on how to create some with flowers, and other simple motifs.

    1. “A breath of fresh air”…I love that description! Thank you, Rachelle! I’m flattered that you like my ideas. It was a fun table to decorate! As always – great hopping with you!

  6. Shelley, love the simplicity and charm of your St. Patrick’s Day tablescape. Using the green bottles as part of your table length centerpiece was genius! I’d love to have green stemware, but wherever to put it! I’m tucking your clever idea away for next year. It all looks so charming with the daisies and fresh clover plant. I also like how we both used green and white check napkins but in very different ways. Another great idea on the table are the fun napkin rings you created. Thank you for contributing your talented table stylings to the hop.

    1. Thank you Debbee! Yes, I noticed we both used green and white checks. Such fun seeing different uses for some of the same things. Thanks so much for hosting this hop! It’s been so inspiring!

  7. Your table is so ready for spring and St. Patrick’s Day! The daisies in the green bottles along with your shamrock plant make the perfect centerpiece for your table. Your sweet little DIY napkin rings are the perfect finishing touch!

    1. Thanks Chloe! I definitely kept it simple so I’m glad you liked it! Always great to hop with you!

  8. I love your burlap napkin rings with the clover. I feel like I can always spot your tables even in a quick scan of all the tables together. Love your style!

    1. Thank you Andrea! I love your style too – I think we both have similar tastes. Great hopping with you again!

  9. Shelly I want your shamrock plant and I can’t honestly say I looked for one because I have not been in a store, grocery or otherwise for such a long time. LOL I order everything on-line and I don’t think a shamrock plant would be too successful in transit. The simplicity of your table makes it all the more like-able and do-able for most table setters. I love it.
    Have a great and wonderful St. Patrick’s Day.
    Kari @ Me and My Captain

    1. Thanks Kari! I’m happy you appreciate the simplicity of my table. Especially in spring, I like a fresh and simple look. And good luck finding those shamrocks. Maybe get an artificial one online! Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day!

  10. Love your simple table with your green bottles of daisies and oxalis as a centerpiece! Your shamrock napkin rings are the perfect touch and so simple to create too! It’s a treat to hop with you and join you at the table. Happy St. Paddy’s Day ♥♣

    1. Thanks so much, Mary! I definitely kept it simple which felt right for spring! Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  11. Shelley, your table is adorable! I love it💚 your green water bottles make a perfect centerpiece, I wish I had thought of that myself!! Your napkin rings and faux napkins are a great plate topper. Your whole kitchen and dining area looks wonderful and inviting. It is a pleasure to hop with you.🍀

    1. Thanks so much Ann! I’m glad you like how it all turned out. Great hopping with you!

  12. Shelley, your table is simple and refreshing! The daisies in the Pellegrino bottles with the jute bows are so pretty. I like how you kept the color palette green and white. It will easily transition to Spring by just removing the shamrock napkin rings. Are the plates ironstone? They look so sturdy! It was fun hopping with you again. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    1. Thanks so much, Rebecca! As you can tell, I’m getting in a spring mood! No, the plates aren’t ironstone but they are a heavier porcelain from Williams Sonoma. Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  13. Shelley, you had me at green bottles and daisies!! Everything else is just a bonus! I have really embraced using what I have this past year when it comes to table styling since we often have been in lock down with limited access to shops! I love your simple approach!

    1. Thanks so much Maureen! Yes, I think we have all thought of ways to repurpose things this past year! Glad you like how my table turned out. Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. Love this table! Such a great understated St. Patrick’s Day vibe. I love green and I love daisies so your post stopped me in my tracks. Love all the great details. Have a great day. XO- MaryJo

  15. What wonderful ideas! I love St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve never thought of using Pellegrino bottles as St. Patrick’s Day vases–you’re brilliant! And those napkin rings are just darling.
