I’m in the Potting Shed with all things green for St. Patrick’s Day and inspiration from an Irish Blessing for a little tabletop fun!
With St. Patrick’s Day on the horizon and spring around the corner, it seemed appropriate to have a celebration of all things green and garden, in timing with Cuisine Kathleen’s 7th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl.
I gathered some green and white flowers from the grocery store to fill some Spring Green Ball Heritage Jars. . .
Carnations, Alstroemeria, Spider Mums, Daisies, Stock and some Bells of Ireland for good luck.
Birds dishes, napkin rings and gardening gloves flew in to join the fun. . .
Along with bird houses, old garden trowels, watering cans, and flower frogs.
An Irish Blessing:
“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. . .
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. . .
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”
I had the luck of the Irish with the timely arrival of the sun streaming through the beveled glass window in my Potting Shed.
And casting rainbows on the table.
