I love the color green, it is one of my favorites. I already have a lot of green in my house, but for St. Patricks day, I like to add a few more touches of it.
I added green ribbon to my white candles. It was so easy. I just wrapped thick green wired ribbon around the candles and attached it with two pearl ended push pins to make them extra pretty. I love anything with pearls. 🙂 You can use ribbon without wire too, I just think it makes it hold its shape nicely. Also, you could use any kind of pins instead of the pearls or no pins at all. You could just hot glue it on. I like my candles wrapped in the ribbon so much, I might just leave it on there all year long.
I needed to add some green to my dining area, and I had these pretty green flowers. I just stuck them in a clear vase and walla! I love the fact that they are a really springy color of green.
My daughter told me that I needed something that represented St. Patricks Day in my house more than just my green touches, so I made myself a cute little sign declaring that I am LUCKY. I printed it out 8 x 8 and mounted it on foam board. Check out my post with instructions for mounting photos on foam board here. Notice how it is placed right next to the photo of my Sweet Lou. Oh, how I adore my Lou. 🙂
I placed my “lucky” sign on a shelf on my photo wall because that is where I display photos of the little ones in my life that make me feel the most lucky.
