A Unique St. Patrick's Day Table

When Pat came up with the idea for this week's table, I was excited. When she finished it, I was amazed. She wanted "something different" from the usual green shamrock-like tablescapes that we often do for St. Patrick's Day. And I think she managed to take an idea and turn it into a beautiful table.

Pat wanted to set an Irish table using Irish products. And what one brand does every true tablescaper think of when they think of Ireland? Waterford....naturally. (Yes, it's true - Ireland does not really manufacture all that beautiful crystal now or the Waterford dishware which is manufactured in England - for now at least....but you get the idea.....)
Here's the table: Waterford "Glenmont" dinnerware with Waterford "Omega" Marquis glassware. On the side, Pat put a Waterford biscuit jar and Waterford salt/pepper shaker.

OK - not Irish but still beautiful - Mikasa "Color Spectrum Burgundy charger

The Waterford Biscuit Jar and Waterford Salt/Pepper shakers are gifts to Pat from her sweet Husband

Where it came from:
Gold Leaf Charger - from Costco years ago
Burgundy Charger - "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa from eBay

Waterford Biscuit Jar and Salt/Pepper Shaker - gifts to Pat from her sweet Husband
14" Tapers - from the Ferndale Emporium (a local gift boutique)
