A Little Green Tablescape

Dear Red Couch Readers, today I bring to you "a little bit of green" to brighten up your world as it brightened up my table today. 
I found these green chargers for a quarter at Wal-Mart after Christmas and thought:  "Ding, ding, ding, I will use them for St. Patrick's Day to give a pop to my table."
I tucked a bit of green checked fabric in my napkin bundle to add a little color.
I picked up these green plastic mugs at the Dollar Store.  Don't tell my children, but I am reusing these to put little gifties in for St. Patrick's Day.  Yes I am an awesome mom!
I have had these candlesticks for almost 20 years, and every once in awhile I remember to set them out for St. Paddy's Day.
Of course if you were here you would get a little treat -- Ande's Mints -- on your table.
The tablecloth is a new purchase from the Christmas Tree Store when I visited Virginia in February.
Here is a view of my bubbly glass.
I love this little Dollar Store sign, which I hang on my buffet -- it is my only St. Patrick's Day Decoration.
On the Homefront:  My daughter Tati's  end of the year swim banquet brought me doing table decorations.  Our school colors are blue -- our Mascot is a dinosaur -- so I did these yarn balls in turqoise and blue and placed them on the tables.  My daughter Talley and I made about 36 of these for the banquet.  Yes, we have no life!
And some good news.  My husband is coming home for about 5 days tomorrow.  Soooo good to see him.
Thanks for dropping by my couch!
