Gone are the thoughts of cheap, plastic, bright green party decor for St. Patrick’s Day. Today I’m sharing my fresh take on St. Patrick’s Day. Last night, we hosted a couple of friends for St. Patrick’s Day. Any excuse for a dinner party, right? There was plenty of beer, wine, cheeses, pie & laughter.

Each place setting included a snip of jasmine, mint ribbon, & an Irish blessing, which I tucked into the linen napkins.

As always, I kept the decorations simple. I pulled the boxwood wreath from our front door, filled my brass pedestal bowl with leftover jasmine & added brass candlesticks.

My clover plant made an easy St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece, wrapped in kraft paper. I love how it closes up at night. It’s a darling little plant to get you in the St. Patty’s Day spirit! They make great gifts as well.

I like to think outside of typical colors & decorations. My St. Patrick’s Day color palette included mint, green, hints of pink & flax. Click here to see last year’s St. Patrick’s Day party.

I created a four leaf clover from jasmine above our bar cart using pins & snipping excess leaves & buds. While a three leaf clover may have been easier, I’m feeling lucky this year. I look forward to sharing some recipes from the party next week, including a sweet & salty Guinness pie!
