St. Patrick's Day Where To Find It 2019
It’s St. Patrick’s Day, time to get your green on. Enjoy!
The tray (8”ceramic) and bowl (4.7” diameter, hand painted) in the top row are made in Ireland. On the left in the middle row is a set of 4 stoneware dinner plates. The pattern is also available in salad plates and a 13” x 10” platter. While the 8” plate on the left is porcelain, the pricing makes it most likely to be placed on a stand and used for decorative purposes. The bottom row features a mixed set of beverage napkins on the left and a set of 4 shamrock spreaders on the right. While we have seen the spreaders in several stores and online in the past, this is the only place we found them this year.
Both tablecloths above are made of polyester. The one on the left is available in 52” x 70”. The one on the right is 60” x 120”. The table runner on the right is 70” x 13” and double sided polyester. Amazon.com has a wide selection of table runners.
The top row features St. Pat’s pillow covers. These are just a few of those offered on amazon.com. The bottom row features a 40” x 60” velvet throw on the left and The Leprechaun Express, a resin train (12.5” long and 5.75”gh) set on the right.

The garden flags are 12” x 18”, made of linin. They are weather and fade resistant. Stands are not included. These and many more St. Patrick’s garden flags may be found at FLAG.

This is the Esty.com store for Karen Sabatello’s Arte & Vita (Art & Life) business. Karen is a self taught artist who has been enthralled by decorative painting since childhood. She says that giving something old new life gives them even more character. She’s been painting for over 25 years, focusing on topics that reflect her interests and passions. Her hand painted glasses, candle holders and vases are among the most beautiful we have seen. She is also happy to personalize her art.

Christmas Tree Shops and & That! Stores
Christmas Tree Shops operates over 70 locations, including a few named “& That.” The stores are mostly in the northeast or southeast, but their website, christmastreeshops.com, makes their offerings available to everyone. They have a broad selection of home decor and entertaining items, at amazingly low prices. They’re definitely worth a visit, however you do it. In their stores, this retailer sells most everything individually. On line décor items are also sold individually unless otherwise noted.

The top row above includes appetizer picks on the right and combination cupcake wrappers and picks on the left. The price on the cobo is low enough that it’s worth buying just for the picks. The bottom row features plastic serveware, from the left, a 13.5” platter, a 9” bowl and a 14” tray. We found what appears to be the same bowl on other online sites for as much as $12 (priced at $1.99 here).

Decorating with Lights
Before electricity candles were strictly for light. Thankfully candles can now be used to create ambience. Green taper candles in brass or silver candle holders are staples of traditional St. Patrick's Day décor. Pillar candles on chargers are more recent, as are floating and votive candles and tea lights. Now technology has brought us micro string lights, “flameless” candles, floating tea candles and submersible lighting at prices that are affordable. These are fairly new, and most sellers are focusing photography on the lights themselves. See below and our DECORATING WITH LIGHTS board on Pinterest® for some examples of how string lights and the various new kinds of “candles” can be used.
