St. Patrick’s Day is sneaking up on me. I sat down last night to get inspired.
Longtime readers of my blog know I love out of the box and inexpensive ideas. Repurposing sweaters as “vase warmers” yep, it’s a winner.
Indeed the entire scene is perfect for those who may not quite have a St. Paddy’s “spring” in their step.
The paring of teal and kelly green is lovely.
This idea made me happy and I just might steal it.
Here’s a close up of the place setting.
Apples yes! But could this possibly be done with Brussels sprouts too?
Green and gold glitter. I think so.
Round up the glass jars.
I love the simple elegance of Irish linen napkins tied up with twine and a single stem of clover.
I had to include this next image from Be Book Bound because the spud and sour cream place setting made me laugh out loud.
St. Patrick’s Day décor doesn’t have to be about leprechauns and rainbows. Green flora and fauna~ such as a vase of “bells of Ireland” and piling up old books in several shades of kelly, chartreuse and forest green also do the trick.
Or perhaps just a few wee green glass vases.
A bit of velvet ribbon and two pearl headed pins can quickly transform a dollar store candle into something spectacular.
For a real party atmosphere you can hang up green tissue paper poms. Martha has a good tutorial.
Have the kids create any sort of paper banner or garland.
You can find the heart and clover how to HERE.
Every year I make the same dinner ~ Irish soda bread, corned beef served with cabbage, potatoes and carrots. It would be mutiny if I ever tried to change it.
But I always try something new for dessert. I found these adorable and oh so easy leprechaun hats at Hostess With The Mostess.
Rolo’s never looked so cute! The free printable is HERE.
If you need a clever craft to keep the kiddo’s busy while you’re in the kitchen this is my favorite.
For a last bit of fun I’ve created a St. Patrick’s Day playlist HERE. It’s my way of saying “Thank you and Happy St. Patrick’s Day” to all my dear readers.
Enjoy the jigs and reels,
