Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape

Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick's Day tablescape farmhouse St. Patrick's Day


Oh happy day, springtime is on the way! Today I am super excited to be sharing my “Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape” as part of the Springtime Tablescapes Blog Hop. A special “thank you” goes out to our fabulous host, Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate and Decorate! I am honored to be joining a group of 25 talented bloggers who have been sharing beautiful spring tablescape ideas this week. You can visit all the lovely blogs via the links at the end of my post.



If you are coming over from Me and My Captain or if you just happened to stop by today, I am thrilled you are here! Now let’s take a look to see how I have added a little bit of rustic French farmhouse flair to a traditional Irish holiday tablescape.


French Farmhouse St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

On Monday I shared a preview of this tablescape in my post, Welcoming Spring With Bits o’ Green. Throughout the week I added more to the tablescape little by little and I love how it turned out in the end.

Farmhouse St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

If you have been following my blog you probably recognize the dough bowl that I have used several times as a centerpiece in previous tablescapes. It is truly the perfect centerpiece for our 100+ year-old farm table and I love changing it up for the seasons. For early spring and St. Patrick’s Day I really wanted to focus on a rustic-woodland farmhouse look.



I filled the dough bowl with moss spheres, antlers, a bird in a mossy nest, vintage crocks and dishes, moss covered rocks, neutral bird eggs, faux tulips and various other faux plants and herbs.

Of course I had to incorporate some quintessential St. Patrick’s Day shamrocks too!



An antique post card (postmarked 1910) adds a magical touch of spring color to the table. Even though it isn’t a specific St. Patrick’s Day postcard, it does feature a lucky rainbow, spring flowers and a little bird. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and early spring!



For the focal point of the dough bowl I filled a recently thrifted vintage crock with some beautiful “real touch” white tulips. I absolutely love them! The tulips will be on display all spring and luckily they will never wilt!

I found the perfect French farmhouse green striped napkins at a local store for less than $2.00 a piece and they really pulled the whole tablescape together. I layered them on top of a French linen runner and I love how it softens the table. Gold coins from Dollar Tree are scattered around the table for a bit of St. Patrick’s Day whimsy.




Elegant St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

I went to every thrift store in town hoping to find some vintage green transferware but the (junkin’) luck of the Irish wasn’t with me this time. Since I couldn’t find any green dishes, I decided to use  the same gold rimmed Dollar Tree dishes that I used in my Traditional and Festive Christmas Tablescape. I really love the simplicity of these dishes and how the gold edges tie right in with the scattered gold coins.



Decorating with moss spheres for Spring

I did get super lucky however when I scored some pretty green stemware at Family Dollar for .60 a piece on clearance!




The utensils are the same heavy duty plastic gold cutlery that I have shared in several previous tablescapes. I placed a fork, spoon and knife on top of my “fake it ’til ya make it” napkins (an inexpensive linen pillow cover from Hobby Lobby cut into six rectangles and tied up with a festive St. Patrick’s Day ribbon).  Along with the gold coins and shamrocks, the ribbon is just another subtle nod to St. Patrick’s Day in what could otherwise be a rustic farmhouse early spring tablescape.



Behind the farm table I styled up the mirrored buffet shelf over the faux mantel with more bits o’ green to tie in with the tablescape.



I just scored these vintage ironstone pitchers at a thrift shop recently. I am in love with the faux lily of the valley in the larger pitcher! Our blog hop host Chloe shared a gorgeous Lily of the Valley tablescape for this hop. It is a must see!



Here is how the dough bowl looked on Monday for the Sharin’ o’ the Green Blog Hop when I was just getting started on the tablescape. I really wanted real shamrocks but so far they have not arrived at the grocery stores in our region. For now I am using these little faux shamrocks which look adorable in a small olive bucket.




After the Sharin’  o’ the Green Blog Hop I added some mossy rocks, rustic bird eggs, and a few gold coins to the dough bowl.



Right now I just can’t get enough of green mixed in with my neutral decor. Green is my favorite color and it just makes me so happy! I definitely think of green as a neutral color and I  do believe I will be using it more in my decor year round.



Since Easter is in late April this year I plan to just enjoy this neutral early spring look for a few more weeks before adding in more pops of spring color. We have had a bit of snow this week but the sun is shining and the daffodils are in bloom…spring is surely on it’s way!



The little birds are chirping their spring songs outside and my heart is filled with all the joy and hope that the renewal of spring brings!



Dear friends,  I send you best wishes for the most beautiful,  joyous, and blessed spring!

    Oh, Amber, your table is amazing! I love all of the rustic elements, the placemats, the silverware tied in a rustic napkin, but the star is your centerpiece! This may be the prettiest dough bowl styling I have ever seen. You incorporated a nod to St. Patrick’s Day, to Spring and kept to your rustic roots with the antlers and moss. Bravo! Thank you for sharing and being a part of another hop!

    I love, love, love your neutral tablescape Amber and your touches of green are perfect. It is one of my favorite colors too. There are so many elements to your table it is hard to pick out one or two but I thought the vintage card with rainbow adorable. I also like how you keep to your rustic farmhouse roots. Good for you for not following the trends. You remind me to get out my St. Patrick’s Day “stuff” as it will be upon us soon. Thanks for blog hopping with us.

    What a great farmhouse look with your greens for a spring tablescape, Amber! You’re right, those napkins make the table, but it’s the overall country look I love. It reminds me of something you’d find in the countryside in the rich lands of Ireland. Your dough bowl is beautiful as the staple element to your tables.

    Yes, I remember that dough bowl, and I still covet it, LOL!! The green and white is so fresh and feels like spring is here. I like your little touches of shamrocks and gold coins too, everything works together so well giving a wonderful St Patrick’s Day feel with an elegant vibe.

    I must admit that I get a little green with envy every time I see your beautiful dough bowl Amber ???? I love the way you’ve styled it this time with the lovely pitcher of white tulips, shamrock plants and an array of eye candy! The moss balls are perfect for the white chunky candlesticks, and I love seeing the pretty wood of your table. It is so lovely, serene and warm, yet elegant too. What a wonderful hop we’ve had this week!

    Your nature inspired Spring tablescape is stunning in green and white. The natural look of the linens paired with the greenery and deer antlers are sweet and makes your table elegantly casual. The dough bowl and wood birds in moss nests add a beautiful reminder of the lovely elements found in nature. Using all white dinnerware and decor pieces can be so exquisite and have worked so well with all the hints of green, especially the placemats and glassware.

    Dough bowls offer so many options for decorating and you’ve convinced me that I need a vintage crock to add to my collection. I like that you added a few extra items each day until you achieved the look and feel you wanted. That’s a good idea and I will use it also. Have a great weekend!

    What a gorgeous tablescape! I absolutely love that you incorporated the antlers – since there’s still a lot of snow where I’m located it feels like a nice way to marry the two seasons as we’re a little behind in moving on to spring!

      Thank you so much! I was thinking the same thing about keeping it a little rustic for early spring. We can still have snow here in KY even if we have some nice spring weather the day before.

      Happy spring!

    My My My Amber! What an absolutely beautiful table setting. I am not Irish or into things green, but your setting makes me look at things differently today–which is actually St Patrick’s Day! Your setting is so wonderfully put together, I just love it. And I love how everything pops and inspires me to use some of your ideas when I get my new dining set for our new home. Thank you for inspiring me with things green and spring! Faye Healey Goggins (I posted this reply just in case the other one did not come thru)
