I choose to decorate our front foyer with seasonal decor since it welcomes our guests with festive vibes. I think having a welcoming and warm, foyer is super important for the “face” of you home. You can read more in depth details about that here {how to decorate a spring foyer}. Come on in, and let me share all the details of this St. Patrick’s day vignette.

green is king

Of course green is king when you are decorating anything with an Irish twist. Since green is my favorite color, that’s a fairly simple task for me. A couple of items I picked up thrifting recently helped me add the wee bit of green for this vignette. Remember this {thrifted goodies – insights & inspiration}.

This slight green emerald vase reminded me of my grandmother. I added some felt flowers and foliage to this traditional piece to give it a fresh and more current feel.

The vintage flour sifter became a cache pot to a shamrock plant. This type of item has been on my hunted pieces list for awhile, which I talk about here {vintage thrifting – tips & techniques}. That little green knob on the sifter is everything.

If you have been here for any amount of time then you know the Santos bust and up cycled vase with the boxwood orb are regulars on the bombe chest. The fact that they are various shade of green are just a bonus for this vignette.

The Irish touches in this vignette are very subtle, including the shamrock plant and the oversized hanging shamrock moss background. Both are on repeat every year when I decorate for then holiday {St. Patrick’s day inspiration ideas for your home}.

I prefer to use organic pieces to identify the St. Patrick’s day holiday, infusing natural elements into my decor. I think it’s a wonderful precursor to the spring season ahead.

The shamrock plants are a prefect way to do this, and Trader Joe’s has them every year, which are less than $5.00. I love houseplants and this is a great way to add something I love and inject a festive vibe. I have a houseplant post coming your way soon so stay tuned.

blessing your home always

I added this home blessings book to the vignette along with the smudge stick, which is used in rituals to cleanse a space. You can read more about it here {a guide to smudging}.

Irish blessings

Irish blessing are always at the forefront during the St. Patrick’s day holiday, which brought me to include this sweet book in the vignette. It includes beautiful sayings, prayers and poems centered around the home.

House Blessiings

The smudge sticks echoes the sentiment to keep the home space clean and safe for all who dwell and enter our homes. The green agate stone in the smudge stick just reinforces the green Irish theme. I placed it in a little pot, symbolizing my pot of gold.

    Very realistic vignette without being gawdy. It’s hard finding treasures now that people are buying up things to sell on eBay.
    I am waiting for a protester to go full on orange on a blog. LOL

    I think I have told you before, but I love that bombe chest! It is the perfect piece to greet guests. I wish I could keep houseplants alive, but they only come here when they are ready to leave earth. The shamrocks in the sifter is so cute. Thank you for sharing your inspiration!

I love hearing from you!
