Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The Luck of the Irish

Tip your 
green Irish derby
("dollar store" makeover)
to the Feast of Saint Patrick...

gather the Emerald Island colors 
in the outside air...

and if the wind starts to twist
 the light fades without...

welcome the warmth
of shelter within.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!


The classic color of February. 

Organza napkins
and a white rosette tablecloth...
that's it

Enjoy the celebration.

The Queen of Hearts


The Queen of Hearts 
and her fashion conspiracy:
gray is the new red.

Muted gray is a perfect alternative 
to the conventional
Valentine color scheme.

Here are the details:

The original choice of black ribbon is more 
Halloween than Valentine,
and not wanting another store run,
all the ribbons:
the bow, 
and the ribbons for the
 hanging hearts and glasses,
are doused in black and then gray. 

The hearts are also painted in black 
before the the final gray hue.

Originally, the LOVE stands 
are a shiny hot pink color.

The place card holders 
are swirled with 
strokes of gray and white.
Each card contains a question,
offering discussion, humor and unity to the table.

Happy Valentine's Day!
Thanks for visiting!
