Saint Patrick's Day Decor Part I

I am not a big decorator for Saint Patrick's Day... probably because I am not Irish, do not know anyone who is Irish, and am not a huge fan of green. But, I thought since there was such a huge gap between Valentine's Day and Easter this year, that it needed some special treatment. Actually Saint Patrick's Day won the coin flip, because I was also thinking about doing Mardi Gras.

So here are the few little decorations I made for the holiday.

The family room has one lone little coffee table decoration. Its rather sad, isn't it. But I do love ivy, and it always reminds me of spring. My next door neighbor has ivy all about, and some times it creeps onto my property. I immediately cut it back. Although I love ivy, I don't love it that much!

My kitchen is pretty simple. I had green plates I purchased last year, gold chargers, white napkins with pretty gold napkin rings. Its pretty simple, but it gives me an excuse to use those green plates!!

Oh the pretty glasses, all wavy and thick, I got at Goodwill, too!! Seriously, I love that place!
:)


The centerpiece is a white cupcake plate tier I made from things I picked up at Goodwill. It was a simple project to do, just 2 candle sticks, 2 plates and a bowl. I lucked out on 2 matching candle sticks and the plates and bowl matching. :)

Then I decorated my cupcake plate with moss and things I had picked up during my travels. From a Lilliput Lane church I picked up in Ireland, to money from different travels abroad, it has lots of memories. Besides the idea of being 'blessed' with money and memories, how often do you get to use your foreign money in a decoration? The small picture I picked up in Mexico last year, it says "Bless this House Forevermore".


I will show my living room next.
