Irish Country Tablescape By Panopoly

Irish Country Tablescape
My first St. Patrick’s Day tablescape – here today – is a reinterpretation of what is typically portrayed on this occasion. Most typically, you may expect an explosion of kelly green with four-leaf clovers or shamrocks, dancing leprechauns, colorful rainbows, and pots of gold. Instead, I have assembled a low-key, casual Irish Country table setting, which can even be used beyond the feast of its celebrated namesake.

Tracing family roots on my father’s side, our ancestors arrived in the US, just before the Revolutionary War, from County Tyrone, Ulster Province, Ireland. Geographically situated in the northern area of Ireland, County Tyrone borders the largest lake in the British Isles, Lough Neagh. This history and geography was the springboard of my inspiration for today’s tablescape. Imagine a quaint village, with farmers and fishermen, serving from farm to table, and the scene is set.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
