Have fun this St Patrick's day with this simple yet elegant table decor from Dollar Tree. It's a fun way to celebrate the holiday and make memories with the kids.
One of my favorite ways to celebrate with the family is to have a themed dinner. I try and do one a month based on whatever holiday or theme I have going on.
Yet still, when my kid walks into the room and sees the Table decor the first question out of his mouth is "What's with the stuff?"
I mean seriously....
I have only been doing these dinner tables for most of his life....
I politely reminded him of all the green we were wearing and that we were having a dinner party tonight for St Patrick's day. (I can still say that even if it's only the four of us who are coming.)
Instead, I'm sharing my simple, but elegant, St Patrick's day dinner table with you hoping that you will find a little more excitement in the celebration than my son.
Personally, I love it, but I am only the mom...
I started the table with a green tablecloth and then placed these shamrock place mats from my party store at each place setting. I just love the sparkle in the placemat and how it sets the shamrocks off.
Each place setting got a gold charger, a clear glass plate, and a green salad plate (all from Dollar Tree.) I also found tall green goblets at Dollar Tree and used them to add a little more green. Somewhere I know we have gold silverware, but I have been unable to find them since the last move. So we went with just regular silverware.
Down the center of the table I used gold napkins that I got from Amazon. I placed three at an angle down the middle.
On top of the middle gold napkin, I placed this St Patrick's day leprechaun hat and flower centerpiece that we found at Collections.
On each side of the centerpiece, I placed a plastic canvas Leprechaun hat with a gold napkin fanning out the top. There are four of them (two on each side of the centerpiece) so the guests have their napkins in front of them for use and decoration.
We had these St Patrick's day fabric balls laying around and I added them to the table at random to give the table a little more green against the gold of the napkins.
Except for having to make the Leprechaun hats, this table was super easy to put together and I love the gold, green, and white color scheme. I had everything in my party table arsenal except for the green salad plates which Dollar Tree has for spring.
For dinner we plan to have Shepherd's Pie (with lots of cheese), Pot of Gold Jello treats, and lemonade with a hint of blue food coloring to die it green.
So yummy and hopefully, at least with dinner, I'll be able to impress the youngster.
Do you do dinner parties for your family?
