St. Patty's Day in my Formal Dining Room, & a peek at the Family Room


Can I say this again...? I love decorating my formal dining room for any holiday! St Patrick's Day is a little harder. I was sitting there last week, thinking how I could do it, and thought about leprechauns, and where they would live. (I like to bring a little magic into the holidays for my kids, and St. Patrick's day is no exception.)


So, I gathered up all the small potted greenery I have floating around my house, and put it on the table.



I wanted to make it look like a place where Leprechaun's would want to live.

Look under the cloche...



I happened to catch a few ;)




The table is scattered with river rock, and my lovely amethyst geode. My mom tells my kids the clear stones are fairy drops, and she has them, and blue ones, scattered throughout her flower beds outside, as do I ;) They are lovely when your eye catches a small glimpse of their color.



The kids were so excited when they got home from school!



A little peek at the Family Room.Ya, the Y is backwards on the banner. I noticed after it was all glued together, and I didn't have any more letters or paper... Maybe I should blame it on the leprechauns?


I got this lantern which I LOVE at Ben Franklin last year for about $8. I love it! Notice I have more leprechauns trapped in there?


Now, I leave you with an Irish Blessing...



Have a Happy and Lucky Day!
