If you’re “lucky” to get a seat at this table, you’re in for a special St. Patrick’s Day treat – a pot of gold-en potato chips. They pair well with our mouthwatering Corned Beef Sliders (see link below). And be sure to save room for our Chocolate Irish Whiskey Cake (link below).
For your table, fill a vase with the Bells of Ireland Flowers. Here are some interesting facts about this unique flower…that isn’t from Ireland!
- Called Moluccella laevis, but also known as the Bells of Ireland.
- It’s a member of the mint family.
- It’s yellow-green flower blooms from summer to fall.
- They are not from Ireland, but native to Syria and Turkey.
- Attractive to bees, birds and butterflies.
- Used widely throughout the floral industry.
- Considered a symbol or good luck.
To create our table setting, we used black napkins for our placemats and placed a clear plate that was spray painted gold (underneath), so it would compliment our beautiful green clover cups (purchased from Michael’s years ago – boy, were we lucky when we found them). We filled the cups with beer nuts and placed a polka dot napkin through the handle and added a gold fork. We sprinkled plastic gold coins and green clovers on the table.
When you’re ready to bring on the food, may I suggest serving Corned Beef Sliders with a dill pickle. And don’t forget to have a pot of gold-en potato chips on the table! For dessert, serve some Chocolate Irish Whiskey Cake.
May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you where ever you go.
