Saint Patricks Day

Here in New Orleans we never pass up an opportunity to celebrate and have a good time.  We just finished celebrating our beloved Mardi Gras but don’t get back to the grind just yet, this weekend is St. Patrick’s Day!  Though I am sure you are ready to discard all of your Mardi Gras decorations, save the green ones to use for St. Patrick’s Day.  Use a clear vase and place only leaves and stems that are green in it. Combining different shades of green, these floral arrangements demonstrate that the color is truly worthy of its own display.  If you are making your way down to the parade this Saturday in the Irish Chanel make sure you have some eye catching party favors for you and your friends.  Cut out the shape of a shamrock using a sponge.  Dip the sponge in green paint and stencil the shape onto a white paper plate.  Attach a stick with hot glue to the paper plate.  Hand these out to your friends and family in order to catch more goodies.  Use a green cabbage tea pot and creamer from the Occasional Wife to help your decor get into the spirit.  To decorate your door pick up a Saint Patrick's Day inspired leprechaun hat from Betty Hunley Designs.  This is a great way to decorate any door or wall in your home.  Also don't forget to wear green this Saint Patrick's Day.  Make sure you pick up on the many Irish inspired T-shirts from Storyville on Magazine Street.
