New Home Decor

I have made a few changes to the decor in our home, adding touches of green here and there for St. Patrick's Day. No, we are not Irish, I'm English and my husband is Italian! I just like to use the bright green after having a lot of red with Valentine's Day and Christmas.

This is our family room coffee table. Most of the time the terrarium and metal basket stay on the table with seasonal changes.

The white ceramic fruit has a sprig of silk shamrock.

A little ceramic cutwork bird sits atop a book with a candlestick and green candle.



The terrarium has two little Irish figurines inside dancing on green coins:
Sorry about the glare (from the white fruit) on the glass.
Aren't they adorable!





Here are two more Irish figurines on the end table in the family room:


See the little Leprechaun peeking out of the shamrocks!

Another little Leprechaun on top of another table:

Moving across the room to the breakfast nook:
Since this gate-leg table was such a hit decorated for Valentine's Day, I decided to do something similar for St. Patrick's Day! I have a shamrock wooden banner (like the heart banner) both were purchased from TJ Maxx a few years ago.

Grandson's silhouette on right side:



(Another glare on the glass of the framed silhouette, sorry!)

The bookcase vignette:

Granddaughter's framed silhouette on one end of bookcase:
Isn't the little shamrock man cute!

The other end of the bookcase:

Another little Leprechaun:
His legs dangle over the top:

Here are a few other vignettes I changed from Valentine's Day to St. Patrick's Day with a few sprigs of shamrock:
The cloche with the little music birds.

The mercury glass candleholder:
The lantern:

The little cupid holding flowers:

What is your favorite vignette:








Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm duly inspired now! I will be dragging out some green to Irish up this house (As soon as my luncheon club adventure this week is over. I'm sort of consumed with that right now.)

My favorite part is the terrarium. I loved it immediately with those coins. I also just love what you did to the nook table. I think you should keep on decorating it for holidays. It's so crisp and white that it makes the decorations pop.

I love all your little figurines, lanterns and candles you used in your pretty vignettes.
The green and white look great together.

The green and white is stunning. I am so into thinking about Easter that I have sort of jumped right over St. Patrick's Day decorations.
