This St. Patrick’s Day tablescape began with this whimsical themed runner I found at one of my favorite local shops, Cachet.
The white brocade tablecloth is Ralph Lauren (Home Goods). I chose these green and white geometric patterned napkins from Seasons and placed them in waterford crystal stemware in the “four feathers” napkin fold (see instructions below).
For the centerpiece, I chose this green vase from Grand Bazaar Antiques flanked by two Beleek vases from Summit Antiques Center filled with fresh yellow flowers. The Waterford candlestick holders are holding shamrock candles by et al from Cachet.
For the place setting, I layered green floral print plates by CC&T, Mystic Garden pattern from One King’s Lane over Lenox Opal Innocence dinner plates.
This serving platter is W.R. Midwinter “Landscape” and dates back to 1923.
On my console is a little leprachaun figurinein front of this wonderful transferware piece,“Grecian” pattern, circa 1891 – 1910, stamped with the mark “Grecian – W. R. Ridgways – England”.
Four Feathers Napkin Fold:
- Fold a large, square napkin in half diagonally to form a triangle.
- Position the napkin so that the folded edge is at the bottom.
- Bring the right corner over and across the far edge of the left side so that the point is going beyond the left corner.
- Repear step 3 twice more so that there are four poitns on the left side of the napkin.
- Fold the remaining top point under the napkin so that the “feathers” face front.
- Position the napkin in a glass.
Laura, your table looks wonderful. I especially love the Beleek vases filled with roses. Wonderful!

Wow! Love the table runner! That is so neat! Your napkin fold and the napkins look perfect in their Waterford stemware! Your centerpiece vases are great and your little leprechaun is so cute! Your plates from One Kings Lane are great! I love shopping with them! Love your candles. I have two sets I’ve saved that look just like those in different colors.
