Top o’ the morning to you! I love St. Patrick’s Day. I do. Rumor has it I have been to a lot a few Paddy’s day parades. Some I may or may not have been dressed up like a gypsy Queen ( thank you Sweet Potatoe Queens!) I love the beads, I love green, I love how everyone just wants to have a little fun for one day. I love the thought that I might find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow… I MIGHT!
I just don’t decorate for it like I do other holidays. I usually do my chalkboard and buy a few tiny gifts for the kids, hit a parade and call it even. This year I want spring to get here so badly, I thought I would make a little extra effort in hopes that it will come a little faster! Today I am going to share with you my St. Patrick’s Day decor.
Remember these? I found these last month at HomeGoods and fell in love with them. I don’t usually like green but I am kinda thinking that this emerald green is the bomb diggity! ( It may even show up in room redo later this spring…) If you read my earlier post you know that I bought these with no idea where or when I was going to use them. Well, this is it baby! Perfect for St. Paddy’s day!
Ta Da! This is my kitchen table where we eat everyday.
I started with some emerald green placemats that I got at Marshall’s last year.
Gold chargers – Get it? Gold at the end of the rainbow -what else?
Then my white dishes that I pretty much use with everything.
Followed by the new napkins. I used some of my parade beads for a napkin ring, just wrapped them around the napkins. I stuck a “lucky” coin in the beads for a little fun!
I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on my decor and ya know that I love to use what I have when I can. So the parade beads were used along with the “lucky” green and gold coins that I have acquired over the years. I picked up a cheesy green pot at Hob Lob for a few bucks. I really wanted a clover plant to go in my pot but I guess here in Texas people consider clover a weed so good luck finding clover at a nursery. Instead I went with another plant that reminded me of clover. I love the tiny white flowers!
Of course I did a St. Paddy’s day chalk board art. I couldn’t resist adding various stuff from my parade days to the frame.
Not bad for spending under $20.00 for my St. Patrick’s Day decor!
One last thing… my outdoor flag. I KNOW – funny, but wrong. I couldn’t resist!
