Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day - Seasonal Sundays #143

Welcome to Seasonal Sundays!
St. Paddy's Supper 047
I love decorating my home for every season and…
St. Paddy's Supper 075
…St. Patrick’s Day is no exception.

I recently purchased this lamp. I’m sure I’ll use my other lamp from time to time, but I was looking for a bit of an update. The neutral color provides a great base from which I can change the look of my entryway.

My little figurine a Bedlington Terrier seems to make my St. Patrick’s Day vignette every year. You can see last year’s here. St. P Vignette 046
St. Paddy's Supper 059
Being the proud owner of two Bedlington Terriers, you can imagine how thrilled I was when I came across this moss sculpture that looks so much like them!

She even got have her own little pot of gold!

This little vignette didn’t scream St. Patrick’s Day, but the subtle touches were there.

My mantel has had a bit of an update lately as well. Loving the new mirror.

And again, some new additions that are on the neutral side so I can incorporate whatever theme I want. Scarves from Dollar Tree added the St. Patty’s flair.

Even the current artichoke became a pot of gold…

…for my little leprechaun!
Are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or are you on to Easter fare. It’s hard to believe how close Easter is!

What a beautiful new mirror over the mantel and your house is definitely wearing the green for St. Patrick's Day! Using neutrals with the green hues and shamrocks is a really smart way of decorating - easy changes for each holiday. Hope your St. Patrick's Day is lots of fun tomorrow and thanks for hosting!

As I type, it's March 17th there already, and 20 minutes away from it here. Happy St. Patrick's Day! You are so smart to include a number of neutrals to your decor since the holidays are coming fast and furious now. I love those white lidded pots on the mantel!!! I actually bought 2 of those moss dogs last year and haven't used them yet. I love the way you have yours displayed! Thank you for hosting this weekend party that's always so much fun!

Love your additions and St Pat's decorations. That was a healthy plant in your foyer. Hard to find plants this time of year. Hard to keep one looking so good if it is not new. I think you have a green thumb too.

Kathleen said...

Very pretty!
Did you put it all away today and get Easter done?

I have the same socks as your leprechaun! :)
