My BFF just happens to be Irish, so I thought it would be fun to get our families together for a little St. Patrick’s Day Party. Green is one of my favourite colours, and over the years I’ve collected some pieces that are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
I started with green plates, and some pretty green napkins that I’ve had for years. For the kids, I used some simple glasses and dressed up a green straw with a drink flag printable from Love The Day. I used a fun striped runner for a casual look. For our centre piece, I used this green rustic wood serving tray. I added two sweet little green tea light holders, and a little metal pail painted with green plaid and used to hold our cutlery for dessert. I wanted to add a few flowers and found these pretty whitish-greenish roses at the supermarket. I cut them short and used three little juice glasses to hold them.
I used this green ceramic rustic obelisk to add some height. On the other side, these lovely little sheep. Years and years ago, a man from my church made these little scenes with rocks, some moss and sheep formed out of some putty with staples for legs. I’ve always loved it and it seemed like the perfect addition for an Irish affair.
I sprinkled a few little shamrock decorations around from the dollar store, which really united all the green elements into a lovely St. Patrick’s Day table.
With a pretty St. Patrick’s Day table like this, life really is a party!
