I'm one of those gals who likes to put up a little bit of decoration for all the holidays throughout the year. I'm also part Irish, so of course St. Patrick's Day gets deemed worthy of some decor around the house! I don't go buck wild like I do for fall or Christmas, but I did dress up our buffet with a little sumthin' sumthin'.
All the decor you see I've had on hand for a while now.
The wine bottle, well... I certainly drank that, then removed the label and hot glued some jute around it. The clover leaf dish, I picked it up at our community mission and probably spent a whole fifty cents on it. After bringing it home, I dusted off the old art skills and painted it to look like a four leaf clover. The IRISH scrabble blocks were just leftover pieces of wood from some other project. I looked up online what the values for those letters were and then just used a Sharpie and the method from this project to make each block. The table runner, ivy and galvanized buckets, my aunt gave those to me years ago but I think they're perfect for this! And finally, I raided my stash of scrapbook paper to make the clovers and folded paper circles. They're attached to skewers, like for kabobs, and then stuck into styrofoam.
Pretty easy and pretty cute, if I don't say so myself!
Okay, so does everyone (or anyone) else decorate for St. Patty's Day? Do you have plans for the
drunkfest holiday? My guess is we will celebrate somewhere, but nothing is set in the Blarney Stone yet!
I'm linking up with a these awesome gals (Jenni, Khala, Samantha & Reneé) for another spot of Tuesday Tea!
