St Patrick's Day

Valentine's Day has come and gone so last night the kids and I decorated our mantle and put up our green decorations!  The heralding of St. Patty's Day always makes me feel so "springy", the crisp green colors giving hints of what will come outside our doors soon...

Jacob and I glittered up this home made banner for the fireplace.  It readys "lucky".  Glitter and a 7 year old, oh Lord.


I didn't know what to do with the branches, but i still like them, so we added some glittery ribbon and made a few green ornaments.  I taught the kids how to make curlie q's out of pipe cleaners, too!



Leprechauns and shamrocks decorate the back door..

How are you decorating for St. Patty's Day?

  1. Your decorations are really cute and even more precious because your children helped make them. I haven't even thought about decorating for St. Patrick's Day! But I have been thinking about corned beef and cabbage!!!
