St. Patrick's Day 2012

I have been wanting to set this table since I purchased these dishes at Goodwill several months ago.  I found them at two stores if you can believe that.  I found the bowls, bread and butter plates and the sauce boat were at the first store.  The dinner plates, lidless sugar bowl and a tea cup and saucer were at the second store. I did go to two others but did not have any luck. They are Syracuse China in the Clover pattern.  I love that they say "Made in America".  The gold trim is intact on all the dishes. 

I couldn't decide on the napkins so I used two different ones along with different napkin rings. There is a bit of Fiesta on the table in the form of the candle holders and small pitcher that is not visible.

I am linking up with The Tablescaper for Season Sundays and with Susan for Tablescape Thursday and Kathleen at her St Patrick's Day Blog Crawl.
