Quick and Easy Lucky Leprechaun Centerpiece

Quick and Easy Lucky Leprechaun Centerpiece

Several years ago, I came across an adorable garden stake (Tuesday Morning), perfect for creating this Lucky Leprechaun centerpiece for a St. Patrick’s Day table.

I had to have him, but at first I wasn’t sure how I was going to use Lucky. The weather usually isn’t warm or dry enough here in Pittsburgh to plant anything in my outdoor urns. Since I couldn’t really incorporate Lucky into a wreath either, I decided to make a centerpiece.

At first, I considered inserting him in a small, black cauldron and filling it with gold coins. But, that would mean sending hubby into the attic to root through Halloween decorations in freezing temperatures. Then I remembered seeing other St. Patrick’s Day floral arrangements using a leprechaun’s hat. That’s when I had my eureka moment and headed off to the craft store for supplies.

Here’s my Lucky Leprechaun centerpiece holding court on the Ireland Pursuit St. Patrick’s Day Table. Let me show you how quick and easy the DIY project was to make.

Elegant, Easy Shamrock Tablescape for St. Patrick’s Day

Elegant, Easy Shamrock Tablescape for St. Patrick’s Day

The dining room is already wearing the green — in anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day— with an elegant metallic gold and emerald shamrock tablescape. 

I frequently set the dining room table and decorate the kitchen area to reflect the seasons and holidays for several weeks at a time. That includes two chandeliers, an island bar, countertop and open shelves.

This past weekend, I took down Valentines Day and began to pull out decorations and tableware for St. Patrick’s Day. But, since today is Presidents Day, the kitchen is still set with dishes, pewter and figures featured in Set a Presidents Day Table with Liberty Blue.

The shamrock tablescape is the first of several St. Patrick’s Day themed settings I plan to share with you. See how quickly and easily you can create an elegant dinner table. Mix china and crystal with inexpensive shamrock-shaped ornaments,and napkins folded into a four-leaf clover shape.
