Simple and Rustic St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

I love celebrating St. Patrick's Day! Maybe it's all the green, all the good food, all the beer...who knows! It's just such a fun holiday, and I love that there are so many totally different ways you can celebrate it! I have really fond memories of my mom making traditional Irish dishes and my aunt and uncle throwing fun parties. It's just all around good!

This year I decides on a really neutral, simple and rustic St. Patrick's Day dinner inspiration. I wanted it to feel like the kind of dinner you might enjoy in an Irish countryside pub. Delicious, homey and simple.

On The Table: 

For the table itself I chose to use really neutral colors, sticking with my everyday tablecloth and a burlap table runner. Then I added little pops of sage green with the napkins and these adorable faux boxwood planters!

Keeping with the neutral theme, I used plain white plates on top of larger glass dinner plates, so the glass plates kind of look like chargers.

And of course, what's a St. Patrick's Day party without Guinness! I've shared my Guinness Cupcakes and Triple Chocolate Stout Brownies with you already (and Guinness beef stew coming next week!), but had to include it in the tablescape too. I love these Guinness pint glasses, which I actually borrowed from my parents! The shape of them is supposed to be "ideal" for Guinness consumption, which I really know nothing about, but I just think they're cute!

I almost skipped anything gold on the table, but then I saw these Frans Chocolates Coconut Gold Bars and changed my mind! They look so cute on each place setting, and still keep with the neutral feel of the whole table. And I spy a little Leprechaun stealing the gold! Charlotte was so obsessed with these chocolates and kept stealing them off each place setting. It was so funny!

However you plan to celebrate the holiday, I hope you have a great time! Slainte!
