Time to Start Adding a Little Green!


Hi everyone!

Well, it is approaching St. Patrick's Day so, I thought it was time to start doing a little re-decorating here and there. I decided to change out my white soup tureen from the Valentine’s day flower arrangement.

This was my tureen before the redo:

rose tea 002 rose tea 004 Out came the roses and ribbon. I chose to use faux daisies this time around. I thought they would work nice for Spring.

St. Paddys day 2011 001 Okay, now to add a little Luck of the Irish to the arrangement.

St. Paddys day 2011 002 I really like the little glittered gold shamrock picks. Now, don’t mind the fact that the shamrocks are so flat. They just came out of the package and they were pressed flat. I need to give them a little time to relax before I fluff this arrangement.

St. Paddys day 2011 003 Like I said before, I am trying to use mostly what I have on hand. I did go to the Dollar store and picked up a couple of things (under my $5.00 limit!). I used a white linen that, although you can’t see it in the picture, has a daisy print on it and I used a dark green linen napkin as well. I also grabbed my gold vanilla votives . Th white linens I got thrifting for $1.00 for the four of them. The green linens I got on clearanced at The Christmas Tree Store last year for .29 cents each.

St. Paddys day 2011 004 St. Paddys day 2011 005 Now it just needs a little bit of glitz!

St. Paddys day 2011 007 I love to grab one of these roping for each of the holidays. I cut it up and use it in multiple places. And I added my two faux silver and gold mercury candle holders.

St. Paddys day 2011 021 Just a small simple bit of green on this side table. But, it is a start! Have you started adding little St. Paddy’s Day accents to your home yet?

  6. I've started my green too. I think it's so fun to *gather* from around the house to see what I can come up with, instead of running out buying more...that I probably don't need! I'm just wondering what I'll bring out next??? The daisies just had such a sense of Spring! Lovely! xoso Sandy O
