Sandra @ Dinner at Eight

Lovely! And to cap it off with those wonderful plates! Great mix of 'high' and low'.

Kathy A

I loved the quiet elegance of your tablescape! I collect Irish blessings and was unfamiliar with your closing quote; thanx for adding to my collection!

Ann Krucek

Very pretty!!! What a beautiful plate stack!

Ranger Smith

This is an elegantly beautiful table! I have a few of those same Limoges dishes that I've found in various spots. I think you've inspired me to use them this weekend. Thank you

Maryjo Materazo

Thanks Sandra! Yes, love mixing the high & low. Thanks for stopping by. xo- mj

Hi Kathy! I’m so glad I found a new quote for you! It just spoke to me & I hadn’t heard it either. Thanks for the sweet compliment. xo- mj

Maryjo Materazo

Thanks Ann- I’m loving the plate stack as well. Lol. Thank you so much for stopping by. xo- mj

Maryjo Materazo

Hi Ranger. I’m so glad I inspired you to use your dishes. That’s my ultimate goal! To inspire & be inspired. Have a wonderful day. xo- mj


Haha love your tale of the thrift store... I'm not afraid to leave the store if the line is crazy-long, but then of course also regret leaving dishes behind! LOL This is a beautiful table - I too like to combine fancy and casual elements in each table. It makes the table look special, but not super-formal.


That is a beautiful St. Paddy's tablescape!!

Kari @ Me and My Captain

This is such a pretty tablescape MaryJo. And I am really Irish, so not for the day only. LOL
Thank you so much for linking up to our Celebrate Your Story link party. We hope we are providing a celebration of your post and perhaps yours will be chosen as a feature by one of the hosts.
Have a great and Blessed Day!

Hi Janet. I've left many things behind at thrifts either for lines, or change of heart or just lose the mood, but these plates stayed with me so I knew I had to go back. I'm just glad they were still there. lol. xo- mj
