St. Patrick’s Day 2017 is just around the corner! I don’t go all out decorating for ST. Patrick’s day, but I do like to spread a little green around the house before I get my Easter decor out.
I love St. Patrick’s day, mainly because it reminds me of spring. Four leaf clovers, pots of gold, kissing of the blarney stone, and wearing of the green or you get a pinch. What’s not to love? Since it’s a quick little holiday, I like to keep things super easy , simple, and low cost!
I love using an Oxalis plant for my centerpiece because it looks like four leaf clovers. It also has the sweetest little white blooms. This plant was found at my local Kroger. When I am done using it inside, I plan on planting it in the shade outside in my yard. Assuming I can keep it alive that long. I’m great with outdoor plants – indoor plants… not so much!
I added beads that we caught at several St. Patrick’s Day parades in the past around the bottom of the plant to finish my centerpiece.
For me the perfect place setting has a lot of layers. I like to start with a place mat. These green ones are some of my favorites. I love the green color and the organic texture.
Next, I like to use a charger. This time I chose a bright gold because it reminds me of gold coins. White dishes are always a go to for me because they match everything. So versatile! Plus, they are the perfect backdrop for smaller pretty plates. In this case, the green lettuce salad plates complete the place setting.
My green and white napkins just scream spring is here! I don’t remember where I got these, but I wish I did. These are the best napkins. They wash beautifully and don’t need ironing. For me, that’s the perfect napkin!
The place cards were super easy to put together. I had these acrylic cubes with a clip attached to a wire arm. Green coins were attached to the clips with glue dots. I cut 2″ X 3″ white stock paper and wrote the names with a sharpie brush pen. It truly took me 5 whole minutes!
Next to the table is my chalkboard. Of course, I couldn’t decorate without adding a St. Patrick’s Day message. The people I love are truly my pot of gold at the end of my rainbow. I am a lucky girl.
I think my St. Patrick’s Day 2017 table turned out pretty well. I had every thing in my stash except for the Oxalis plant. My table is cute, simple, and as my Granny used to say “easy on the pocket book”!
So are you planning on decorating for St. Patrick’s Day? If so I would love to see what you have going on at your house.
