An Irish escape

I wanted to do an Irish tablescape for St Patrick's Day. In 2008 we went to Ireland and spent a magical week touring Ireland

Of course we had to go see an official castle. Blarney Castle Oh the stairs, they were only two feet wide

But what a magical place with tiny windows and the kitchen to die for. really it was six stories up and was nothing but a hole cut in the wall

Our main goal was to get to Cliffs of Moer which was an amazing journey to get to.We drove over 584 miles around Ireland

One of our must stops was touring the Waterford Chrystal plant where  the worlds most beautiful glass was made and cut

The cliffs were stunning and I think the most magnificent site on this earth(sorry the pic is blurry)

I have shamrock napkins and I used a shamrock cookie cutter for my napkin ring gotta get creative and use what you got.

In these pictures that I put out around the table are some unique places like downtown Dublin, Trevalia, Tralee, Ring of Kerry

A few dollar tree pickups to accent with

I purchased this book on Ireland and it had many of the sites we went to and lots of castles that we didn't

Maybe we will have  a romantic candle lite dinner and re live all our memories of a magical week 

I loved Ireland it was so beautiful and vibrant. I stood on the Cliffs Of Moer and Praised God on the anniversary of my one year of stage Iv breast cancer that there was more to life than me or breast cancer.What a better way to share my St Patrick's Day with all of you  than a walk down an Irish memory lane.
