An 'O can make Irish of thee
Just as easily as a Mc'D
So whatever your name
Play the St. Patty's day game
And be Irish as Irish can be!
Once, again, it is time for wearing of the green and trying to decide how to dress our tables for the big day. St. Patrick's Day is the one day we can all be Irish.
I invited a little Irish lad and lassie to help me celebrate this year. They were delighted to be surrounded by so many familiar things.
A collection of Waterford "Lismore" pieces...
A biscuit barrel
And a spirits decanter to hold Irish whiskey, no doubt. Sorry, children - no whiskey for you!
Shamrocks to add a bit of Irish luck!
Belleek "Shamrock" salad plates must look familiar to these visitors.
More Irish crystal - sherbets and ice beverages in the Galway "Longford" pattern.
A bit of a cheat here - this goblet is Tiffin, but made with the Irish in mind. The color is "Killarney" green.
Actually, green is everywhere - in the napkins, napkin rings, tablecloth and the shamrocks on the placemats. The thing that struck me most, when I visited Ireland was all of the different variations of green. I love mixing all of those together for this special day, when we all think of Ireland. I hope that my new friends are reminded of home and that all of you play the St. Patty's day game, even it you are not really Irish!!
