Green on the Rack

I have my bread rack decorated and ready for St. Patrick's Day. I am using it as a dessert center for the occasion so take a look:

I generally place wreaths over my bread rack but I decided to bring it down and hook it to the rack. My matching artichoke jars are a favorite plus they have green so it's a perfect place for them. 

I want to share of closeup of the jar so that you can see that it has a top that comes off. Guess I could store my gold pieces in it! What would you store in these jars?

I didn't want to crop off the iron work in the picture below. I love the pattern it forms.

I love how the sun is shining through my kitchen windows and reflecting on the tray just a bit.

Love these cute little vintage Irish lad and lassie standing on the glittered lid of a shamrock box, couldn't resist buying them. 

The napkin tray below was a purchase at the Bagbey House in Franklin, Tennessee, last summer. 

I decided I needed a little more green on the bread rack so I added my Peggy Karr Shamrock plate and a little ivy to the rack, take a look below.

Thanks for stopping by to see my green, you may want to see my Irish Blessing tablescape. Click here to visit it. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

Hello Mrs. JB,

Wow! this is an amazing presentation to honour St. Paddy's day. As I said to many of my bloggie American friends, I am envious, that Sweden don't have things I could buy and play for this day.

Excellent, Maam.

Judy, I really like the way you did your baker's rack and I love the artichoke jars. What would I store in them? White chocolate KitKat bars. I have to hide them when I buy them. I like your napkin tray, too.

Such fun to have a baker's rack. Fun to change things up for different occasions. The artichoke jars are great. Sorry I'm late to arrive, but I've been away from my computer. Happy St. Patrick's Day! ~ Sarah
