St. Patrick's Day Decor

A Touch of the Irish
I know everyone has moved right on to Easter in their decor but I wanted to do 
a little St. Patrick's Day decor.
Mainly, I wanted to make a St. Patty's Day Banner out of Dollar Tree stuff.
All it took was a package of glitter shamrocks, a package of green crepe paper streamers, ribbon
and a glue gun.
I really wanted some gold coins to glue in the middle of each of these or spell out the word LUCKY
but that would have involved another trip to the store...and I didn't want to do that. 
This is good enough. I'll embellish more next year.
This is my second banner to make this month...and I'm kind of addicted to making them.
Now I need to make one for Easter.
I put out my sea foamy green dishes and some greenery.
Faux succulents got stuck in a silver footed bowl.
I am really loving faux succulents. They look just like the real thing.
Centerpiece on table is a pussy willow wreath with a tray and candles.
Very simple and effective.
One of my favorite majolica dishes came out for the display.

Thanks for all your suggestions yesterday about my fabric situation. 
I took the scissors to that slipcover last night and cut it up to start sewing it into some sort of slipcover.
It's going to be a challenge. I'll use every little scrap of it with some other fabric I have here mixed in.
It's either going to be fabulous or a giant failure.
I'm hoping for fabulous.

Wish me luck...a little luck of the Irish!
(I'm part Irish so hopefully it will work)

You always have great ideas!
I went to the local Pier One today and bought a few things. I also told them it was because of your blog that I shop there~don't think they even knew what a blog was! LOL
Thanks for sharing your home and ideas.

Great banner, but vignette is awesome! I would love to purchase some faux succulents. Mind sharing where you purchased yours??

Nita Stacy said...

I bought my faux succulents at Pier 1. We have them already in pots but these were not. They were on sale and we don't have them any more. But...you can find lots of them at Hobby Lobby.

pretty, pretty as usual! & thought i'd share--have you checked out 'zulily'? it's one of those daily deals sites, known for their women's & kids, but their HOME stuff is super cute these days! they have rustic outdoorsy gardening stuff going on now that reminded me of your pins as of late. TGIF!!!

Nita Stacy said...

Alisha -
I know about Zulily but haven't checked out their home stuff...I will right now!

Sweet little banner - I like the idea of adding to it next year, then maybe again the next year! It will hold more memories that way. Cheers, Catherine
