D´Precious Box celebrates St. Patrik's Day...

Thursday is St. Patrik's Day!

And this date 17th of March is the death anniversary of my loving dad which in the Philippines is the patronal fiesta of San Jose. My family celebrates this day with a big bang (festivities) coz one reason is that this date is the birthdate of my late grandpa. Amazing coincidence, huh?

Anyways, in Sweden, life here is so neutral. Nothing much for celebrating. You can just hear the mumbling or complaining that Swedes are now more Americans. We more and more captivating on what the US bring to the world.

But for a Filipina like me, who grew up with the American way, misses those happy celebrations. As I can't find the things that I would like to have on Patty's day, I pick up my things and put them together and prepare my table, my way...


I started to gather the things plan for the table...
Now, it looks, I found the right motives?
Plates are Swedish stoneware from Höganäs & coaster from Sorrento
Do you think this is pretty?
Oil & Vinegar modified to Sugar & Milk shaker & it works...
Coffee/tea spoon is vintage from GH great grandmother...
Ivory/silver dessert fork is also vintage while flatwares is Calströms silver
Hurricanes that I love most...
I love my depression glasses too...

I am joining Susan's meme at BNOP on her TS Day...

  1. You did a wonderful job of gathering appropriate elements for your St. Patrick's Day tablescape. I particularly like the hurricane with the green candle and your green stemware. Festive, lovely design. Thank you for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

  2. Du har helt rätt, vi svenskar är jättedåliga på och fira saker. Tom. nationaldagen har varit trögt, men vi är väl ett trögt folk. Jättefin dukning, jag blev så förtjust i din vackra gröna duk.

  9. Hey there, my friend! I hope you are doing OK. I read that this is the anniversary of the death of your Dad. I am sorry about that. Was the grandfather who was born on this same date his Dad? I know you must miss a lot of the festivities that go on here in the states, but life in Sweden has to be one of the most unique and fantastic experiences! I know it's very different, but just as you made your own fun and excitement with this great tablescape, I'll bet you do the same in your everyday life there! Is it still winter there? Have a really great weekend, Chie, and thank you for visiting my blog earlier today. I always love hearing from you! Take good care!

  18. Hello there, WOW what a pretty blog. You are so clever. I love the way you have put some lace across the table. Is it a runner or have you been inventive with something else? I must confess, I tend to use many things for different uses. I have had a good look through your blog is is very inspiring.

    Like you I am not living in my original country. I am English and living in New zealand. It too can be a little bit boring. Kiwis dont tend to get very excited about very much, unless it is playing sport or hunting. I miss the availability of beautiful things in the UK. Never mind......we must keep blogging and enjoying each others achievements. Jo

  19. Beautiful green and white table, Chie! The little covered dishes are cute...what did you serve in them?

  20. I love that for you St Patricks is a day you celebrate people you loved. You created your own very special table with collected green and white. Nothing wrong with thinking outside the box. Hope you are having a lovely day.
