Blarney and Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Although neither of us have Irish heritage (that we know about anyway) and only claim to speak fluent blarney, I do enjoy decorating a bit for this fun holiday. I typically keep things simple with vignettes of green and gold. Here’s a quick tour of my St. Patty’s Day décor.  In the entry way the dresser holds an Irish blessing I found online last year and a few touches of green and gold in the form of candles and glass.



StPatEntry15B My holiday tree got a few shamrocks and a gold garland with a little leprechaun hiding amongst them.

In the family room the media cabinet also got some green and gold vignettes, including more candles (notice one of my DIY pedestals?!) and a cute little gold shamrock print I found online.




The mantel holds a large print and my DIY button rainbow art from a few years back, with – you guessed it – more green and gold.


I paired a gold votive with my thrifted white crock filled with shamrocks on the table beside my chair. To finish it off I added our gold-tinged monogram.


The pillow covers I picked up around Christmas time were perfect for my chair and the ottoman near the entryway.

The dining room got a simple centerpiece of split pea and a flameless candle, while the buffet in the background holds a cloche of my DIY blarney stone and gold coins.

Apparently the hubs agrees with my choice of print for the mantel because I found this little addition the other day.  Guess you don’t have to be Irish to be lucky! 🙂
