Oh wow…2018 is flying by! I have missed checking in on the blog, but my design practice has kept me extremely busy so far in 2018! But perhaps we could take a stroll back to late winter and early spring for some entertaining tales from Chestnut Cottage.
As you already know, St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays…as it should be since my grandfather is from County Down, Northern Ireland!
This year, we had a lovely little group at Chestnut Cottage to celebrate this important holiday.
Flowers are always an important part of any party at Chestnut Cottage…and this holiday it was “shades of green”!
As you might expect , this was a “collected tabletop”, with several of my favorite green patterns…
A combination of Royal Crown Derby’s “Green Derby Panel” and Bernardaud’s “Constance”, along with some lovely Italian green stemware and of course my Lismore pattern by Waterford.
And before I could turn around, it was time for our annual Easter celebration lunch at Chestnut Cottage.
We had lots of guests this year, so we had THREE collected tables!
I hope your spring entertaining was enjoyable and successful. But now we must move on to Spring in the Garden!
