I love to buy fresh cut flowers and decorate the house with them. It gives the house a nice comfortable vibe because, you know, positive vibes only. There’s nothing like a beautiful, seasonal floral arrangement.
I love smell of sweet fresh air purified by the flowers, especially eucalyptus. This holiday I had to make sure I would get something green and festive. I grabbed a beautiful bunch of eucalyptus branches and other fresh, earthy green flowers. I mixed them all up, added golden doubloons and I suddenly had the perfect St. Patrick’s Floral Arrangement.
You don’t have to buy eucalyptus if the smell does not appeal to you. What comes with the end of winter and beginning of spring is an array of fabulous flowers and greenery that can complement just about any holiday or festivity. You’ll free to take your pick of any floral arrangement you like.
It’s too easy to buy the glittery coins. They come in a faux flower bouquet from Dollar Tree. It’s a cute arrangement of two golden doubloons and four dark green flowers dipped in gold glitter. I cut the bottoms off so that I can use each branch individually. After splitting them, I added the golden coins into the vase I filled with my bouquet of eucalyptus. Then, I decorated other stuff with my leftover green flowers.
What decorations have you used this holiday to decorate your house? You can make your St. Patrick’s Floral Arrangement in a jiffy. Even if it’s right before guests come over for a dinner party or gathering. I just can’t wait to show mine off.
