Happy St. Patrick's Day.
We're having a small dinner party this Friday. Couldn't let all the Leprechaun Making go to waste.

Here's a preview.

There's more pictures here.

OA, it was a pleasure meeting Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke. And the rest of the wee folk from old County Cork. What a cute poem to go with this table.

You really took setting a table to a higher lever with this one. Fabulous gold dishes you got with your wishes. Love the orange flowers and napkins to match the leprechauns beards.

Your poem had me smiling the whole way through. Those little guys are darling and so busy celebrating.


RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

OA, I believe this is a 'tall tale!' I am enamored with your humorous storytelling verse! Can tell you've had lots of fun creating this table to enjoy w/friends & here on the Holiday forum, too! I just love, love the centerpc you created w/those stems on your table! & your lil' Leprechauns seem to have a wee bit of wisdom w/their lust for enjoying life w/croquet, checkers & brew! They are just the cutest wee lil' ones that you have created!

Love how you used the pop of orange for color to play off the wee ones' beards! And the gold & green are beautiful in the placesettings...texture of the dinner plates & the gold-rimmed glassware...flatware, too! So lovely.

Menu sounds divine! Certainly a treasure for St. Patrick's Day! TFS, OA! Jeanne S.

OMGosh, this table is beautiful and the tale is delightful. I think I was smiling ear to ear. I agree with Jeanne about the orange...WOW.

hugs, Karen

RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

Well, I like the orange napkins too, but you all know I like COLOR.
Honestly, I'm not sure people aren't just being nice when they say, "It pops."
I have the funny feeling they really mean, "It explodes!". I had the most difficult time photographing the table. I must have taken 200 pictures. The oranges were glaring - I mean REALLY on-fire-orange. I tried to use Photoshop, but all I could manage was to either get the oranges subdued and the green washed out to the point of looking beige, or leave the blinding orange color so the greens were a nice hue. It was one or the other.
Still, as you might image, I had a blast posing the little devils.

A very nice women posted a comment on my blog that began,
"When I first saw the orange, I actually turned my stereo down . . ."
I honestly thought the end of that sentence was going to say something like
. . .because the orange was so loud it was competing with the music." Honestly, that did flash through my mind.

I'm so glad I can count on my forum friends. You gals are always so nice.

RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

OA, All of your hard work setting and photographing it paid off.
I think the green swirled dishes are perfect.
And the gold rimmed stemware and plates are lovely.

Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly, and Rourke look like they are having a great time!!
It's nice they came out of hiding for your party.

What time is Dinner?


I forgot to say that I think the orange napkins and flowers jut perfect on this table, it wouldn't be the same without them.

RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

What a great table! Your leprechauns are just adorable! Love your gold rimmed plates and your Bells or Ireland look so real! Great job and I hope your dinner party goes perfectly!

RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

I forgot to mention that 'rainbow cake'.. & w/your GD's help, too! Wow! Fantastic! Jeanne S.

RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

OA, it's a great table (love the colors) and it sounds like a neat dinner party. Hope you have a blast!

RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

OA, Just tooo darn cute. I love that your little lepracans are playing crocette(SP, that doesn't look right, but I"m to brain dead to figure it out) You always come up with the cutest ideas. Love your blog too, Hugs & prayers, Janet

RE: Meet Flannigan, Hannigan, O'Reilly and Rourke

Pleasure meeting all your wee folk! The accompanying story was quite clever, no surprise there!

Please send me a piece of that rainbow cake ASAP! My mouth is watering just looking at it.

I'll bet your party was super and a grand time was had by all, both the wee folk and the big folk!

Your table is awesome.
