On this special day, I send the kiddos off to school in their green garb, and usually put on something festive myself. Do you have traditions this time of year?
I do try to bring fun and tradition to the table. The tables I set last year were very bold and rich in color, so this year, I want to set a table with a much lighter hand. It has been an unrelenting winter for most of the country, and we have had our share of torrential rain here in Southern California. It is gloomy and damp, which makes me long for Spring. Setting a table infused with light, springy colors is a great way to banish those lingering winter blues and bring in a feeling of Spring.
In honor of this wonderful season and Cuisine Kathleen's Annual Saint Patrick's Day blog hop, today I am sharing a sweet and simple tablescape reminiscent of the Springtime. I hope you enjoy the post!
I began this setting with a wonderful damask tablecloth in a lovely soft celadon.
