A Green Tabletop

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to my fellow Irish-folk. :)  While I’m not one for green beer or cabbage, I do enjoy some cabbage leaf style dinnerware.  So I thought today was a good day to discuss the new tabletop collection from Tory Burch and famed Palm Beach potter Dodie Thayer.  Now, I totally can see what some people would think this stuff is heinous, it’s not for everyone, but it in small doses on a springtime table I think it’s quite charming!  Not to mention the history behind it.  There is a great article from the Wall Street Journal about collecting these famed lettuce-leaf pieces, especially the originals signed by Thayer herself.

Two notable collectors of her pottery- Jackie O. and CZ Guest- so you know it’s legit.

I pulled together a St. Patrick’s Day table using a touch of the new collection!
