I loved my Etched Glass Centerpiece so much that I promised weeks ago that I would use it for St. Patrick’s Day and that’s exactly what I did. The etched design on the centerpiece reminded me of a Gaelic Knot so I added some green calla lilies that scream Spring and with a little luck of the Irish, it’ll be here before we know it.
This was my Etched Glass Centerpiece that I shared a couple of weeks ago. I love it! It’s so elegant and the etching process was super easy. I love the versatility of the piece as well. Plus, I give you a step by step tutorial of how easy it is to etched any glass surface.
I decided that for my St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece I was going to need a little green added to it. I found artificial mini green calla lilies in the wedding section of a local craft store and knew they would work perfectly. This centerpiece would actually work perfectly at a bridal or baby shower, or even a wedding. All you need are the right type and color of artificial flowers.
I placed 4 mini clay pots upside down inside of the centerpiece and poked the calla lilies through the hole in the bottom of each. They stood up perfectly with a little rearranging of the pots on the bottom. I added a piece of curly raffia around the outside of the centerpiece as an added organic detail.
The finishing touch was gold metallic crinkle cut paper that I placed on the inside to cover the clay pots. I always associate gold with St. Patrick’s Day because of the gold at the end of the rainbow. It’s highly likely that the gold will tie my St. Patrick’s Day Mantle together. I’ll be showing that later in the week though.
I love that the calla lilies are a reminder of Spring because after the February we had of being sick every other weekend, we definitely need some Spring.
I can’t wait to show you the rest of the mantle, but until then here some St. Patrick’s Day ideas from last year.
