Whether using items I already have or discovering great finds at yard sales, I enjoy seeing how it all comes together when decorating for St. Patrick's Day.
This train table cover has been one of my favorite refurbished yard sale finds! l painted one side with chalkboard paint and have used this board for many parties. The hole in the top (originally precut for easy lifting) has been great for using different accent pieces to highlight each party theme. This large shamrock came from the Dollar Tree.

We have a long narrow porch, so I was delighted to fill the empty space with a welcoming garden table. The window frame was found at a yard sale, the table at Goodwill and the table top boards were found at Lowe's. All the decorative items where found at church/yard sales or thrift stores, except for the wood props under the candles and the hanging metal flower vase that was a gift from my lovely Aunt B.

Ok, if your familiar with my posts, you know I just love giving out individually wrapped tea with decorative beverage napkins. Once I discovered that they fit perfectly into clear cd sleeves I've been happy to share this neat presentation.
When my grandmother moved years ago, I was given a book of postcards she had kept of my great grandmother's. All of the postcards are over a hundred years old and make for interesting conversational pieces and historical family reading. I have a vase with real and artificial lighted branches on which they hang in protective sleeves. I rotate them year round according to the seasons.
While listening to the sounds of Praise and Celtic music, I enjoy lit candles, the smell of herbs and the decorative look of mossy stones.
Love fresh clippings of Rosemary in water filled vases. Once they grow roots, I place them in planters and then move to the yard. Also, have fun framing decorative writings and placing the clippings around the frames.

I also use fresh clippings of Rosemary to enhance the look of my table centerpiece as well. This Arthur Court tray was a wedding gift and is perfect for displaying tea lights, pebbles and mossy stones.
Fresh clippings and herbs are simply wonderful, easy and useful in helping to decorate for our celebratory birthday dinner party.

From our family to yours, we wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Enjoy reading more about St. Patrick the missionary.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:16-17 New International Version (NIV)
Notice that the verse above mentioning the trinity is in Matthew, chapter 3 and verses 16 & 17. St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain that God was 3 persons in one, just as you have three hearts in one shamrock.
