St. Patricks Day Tablescape

Hi Dolls!

I received such a great response on my last couple of tablescapes from Valentines Day and my farmhouse design a couple weeks ago, that I decided to share my latest one for St. Patricks Day! (Be sure to scroll to the bottom, to see the video of exactly how I made each crafty piece for my table) If you haven’t figured out by now, I love a good theme and I think that is why I am obsessed with all the different Holidays throughout the year! It gives me an excuse to create some sort of a theme and of course do what I love most….DESIGN and CREATE! Problem is sometimes St. Patricks day decor can be a little cheesy, so I did the best I could with the options available in stores. I also used flowers from my own garden and created some fun things with stuff I already had right inside my home.

My table from Z-Gallerie is the perfect neutral palette to change up the decor for any holiday (and quite frankly why I ended up buying it)  This is how a designer mind thinks, not about functionally first but about how I can decorate it, thankfully it turned out to be very functional as well.  My gorgeous Hurricane Candle holders are Ralph Lauren and you can find them here.DSC01495

My table inspiration came from this little hat decor I found at Michaels and it was 50% off!  I lined it with celaphane (so water didn’t leak through)  and then put a oasis ball in the middle in order to hold the flowers properly.  I then went out into my garden and cut the calla lily’s (love having those flowers in my garden) and strategically placed them in the oasis.  I then crunched up some brown paper and stuck it on top of the oasis ball (so it would be an even surface) to lay the green moss I found from Michaels on top of it (so it looked complete and full) Then I found some cute chocolate gold coins from Ralphs and placed it all around the hat and falling out over the top (like an overflowing pot of Gold, but its just a hat instead)  I had the sparkly clovers from a few years back and layed them around the hat to add some extra green and theme to the look.  Here’s another view from the top. DSC01485

I also cut some extra calla lily’s for the tall vase next to this hat just to change up the height of the different elements on my table.  Visually I think it is more stimulating like that, and then in the mason jar and the Coco Chanel Vase I added some green hydrangeas and them added some green food coloring to the vases to add some festive cheer to the table. It’s a fun way to change up the look of your flowers and also add to the theme. DSC01487

One of my favorite parts of this project was these little clay pots that I turned into these adorable little pots of gold. I got the inspiration from Pinterest. There is soo many great ideas on there. Here is what I did

  1. I spray painted the clay pots black
  2. Then I drew a 3 leave clover on it with a black sharpie
  3. Then I fill in the clover with elmers glue and a small paint brush, as well of around the top of the pot
  4. Then I sprinkled Martha Stuwart glitter all on the glue.
  5. Any left over I wiped up with a q-tip or a little larger brush and dusty away the glitter
  6. Then once dried I put gold rolo’s so the look like the are overflowing (like a pot of gold) Here is how the turned out! Check out the pics below
