Last year was the first time I actually purchased a few St. Patrick’s Day decorations. My friend Holly made me a super cute rainbow swag banner for my mantel and I just couldn’t bare to let it live there alone! These items add a little fun without getting carried away and coordinate well with the spring decor.
How fun is it to have a day when you actually have the chance to pinch someone?!?! I mean come on…don’t tell me you have never really wanted to pinch someone and get away with it. I have always loved St. Paddy’s day and the fun of wearing green or not and claiming to be wearing green undies just to avoid being pinched (guilty). I may even find a way to track down a green beer on Tuesday!
If you have never used split peas as a vase filler, pick some up the next time you are at the grocery store. They are the cheapest and easiest way to fill your vases with spring love!
We will also have a somewhat traditional Irish meal on Tuesday and it is one of the simplest meals I ever make. Corned Beef brisket can be purchased at pretty much any grocery store and I pop it in the crockpot, cover with water and cook all day. It is always perfect and always delicious. We will add cabbage instead of the brussel sprouts we ate this day and more than likely some cornbread.
It has warmed up here in Texas so I’m hoping to wear something similar to this to keep from getting pinched on Tuesday!
Hope you have a fun St. Paddy’s day! I love a reason for a celebration don’t you?
