How to Create a Saint Patty’s Day Centerpiece

Honestly, I’ve never decorated for Saint Patrick’s Day before but creating this tablescape was so much fun!

I shopped my home and didn’t spend a dime to create this simple botanical centerpiece for Saint Patty’s Day.

Although full disclosure… I did grab a few extra plants from Anne’s house.

It’s good to have a blog partner across the street to share home decor pieces with!

I decided to go with a green and gold color scheme for the centerpiece because it’s a Saint Patty’s Day tablescape after all.

The first layer of the centerpiece was two square pieces of green burlap that Anne had leftover from a previous project.

I just layed them in the middle of the table overlapping on a diagonal then started to build the tablescape.

The small gold buckets were left over from Emma’s 16th birthday party and they were perfect to use in my tablescape filled with small faux plants.

Both Anne and I have several of these budget-friendly faux plants from Ikea.

If you don’t have an Ikea near you don’t worry…I’ve shared an alternative… just click the photo under Shop the Post above.

I didn’t have enough of the same plants so I borrowed a few of Anne’s to have some symmetry with 3 of one type of plant and 2 of another style.

I always like to decorate in odd numbers so using 5 plants lined up down the table works for that rule.

And to give the centerpiece just a little bit of height I used 2 wood risers to lift up 2 of the faux plants.

Adding small glass votives around the tablescape gives a pretty glow to the table with the reflection of the gold buckets.

And a few strings of wood beads between the plants adds some visual interest.

What to Use for a Saint Patty’s Day Placesetting

To create the place settings for my Saint Patrick’s Day tablescape I shopped my home again. But this time I did spend $10 on those cute little shamrocks!

Not a bad investment for 6 shamrocks if I do say so myself.

I started building each place setting with my seagrass table chargers.

These are such a good versatile starting point for most table settings.

And they’re so neutral they can be used any time of the year for different themes.

Next I stacked my every day white dinner plates and in between I layered two different napkins.

The black and white plaid napkins pop against white plates and you’ll never guess what those white napkins actually are.

Are you ready for it…they’re shop rags!

Yup can you believe it?

The thin material is a perfect drapey look on top of the second smaller plate.

Plus they are really cheap! Umm I mean budget-friendly!

And on top of the place setting was the adorable wood shamrocks I found at Hobby Lobby.

The little wood shamrock is the cutest holder for our delicious dessert for your Saint Patrick’s Day celebration.

Don’t forget to come back on Saturday to get the recipe.

It’s so yummy I just may have had one for lunch today!

A mix of glassware adds a casual feel to the Saint Patty’s Day tablescape.

Aren’t those glasses with the gold polka dots great?

I bought them a few years ago for a New Year’s Eve party. So much fun!

Spring Color to Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day

I had to include my china cabinet when I was styling the Saint Patty’s Day tablescape.

Adding to the botanical vibe I included a few moss spheres and a couple more of those amazing faux plants to the shelves.

Although it’s hard to see…on my buffet table I arranged my long wood tray with Anne’s gold candlesticks and another faux plant.

Bringing all the greenery into the dining room for my Saint Patrick’s Day tablescape gives me all the spring feels.

I could just put away the shamrocks and this tablescape would be perfect throughout the spring season!
