Antique Bavarian China in a Beautiful Candlelight Table Setting

Hand-Painted Bavarian Tirschenreuth in St. Patrick

Welcome to the 704th Tablescape Thursday!

St. Patrick’s Day was a week ago but I couldn’t wait all the way until next year to share a beautiful table setting Warren created and shared with me just a few days ago. Warren put this beautiful table setting together for a recent family gathering.

Warren said, “Recently, eleven members of our family gathered to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with our
traditional buffet dinner of corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, supplemented with
spinach balls, fish cakes, and salad.”

“For the occasion, I created a green and gold tablescape set on a black tablecloth with a gold
table runner (Homegoods). I chose for the dinner plates, a mixture of very pretty antique
Tirschenreuth plates (Ebay) with green bands, gold filagrees, and floral designs. They were
placed on bright green chargers (Christmas Tree Shops).

Here’s a closer view of the beautiful, floral dinner plates.


The colors are just so beautiful!





I love the centerpiece Warren and his wife, Kathie, created for this occasion! Notice how it beautifully repeats the stunning floral patterns found in the plates.

Warren said, “For the centerpiece, Kathie and I constructed a bowl of artificial flowers, which resembled
the floral pattern in the plates pictured above. We purchased the artificial flowers at a
salvage store where they were being sold for pennies on the dollar. We brought home four 18-
gallon tubs of flowers.”

“The bowl of flowers was surrounded by three gold-stem hurricane candle holders, which we
found for 70% off in the “Back Stage” department at our local Macy’s store.”

The glow of the candlelight is just beautiful!

Warren said, “The green and gold theme was continued with emerald green Cristal D’Arques-Durand water glasses (eBay), gold-rimmed wine glasses from HomeGoods, and faux gold flatware we
purchased, many years ago, in Lancaster, PA.”

“Finally, Leprachauns straddling green depression glass bowls of gold coins added a bit of Irish
whimsy and completed the connection to Saint Patrick’s Day.”

Whenever Warren and Kathie entertain family and friends, the dinner they prepare always sounds as amazing as the table setting Warren creates. Warren said, “For dessert, we had a moist dense chocolate cake served on Lenox Ming dessert plates, which I found in a local Goodwill store.”

Thanks so much to Warren for sharing this special, beautiful St. Patrick’s Day table setting!
