It’s that time of year when we’re all looking to bring a little more green into our daily lives whether it’s because we’re craving seeing things grow again or because we’re thinking about celebrating St. Patrick’s Day soon. Either way, I have a few tips for adding more green to our tables.
1. Create a centerpiece using green split peas
For about a $1, you can create a simple but interesting centerpiece by pouring some split peas into a glass container. They look great by themselves, or you can immerse a candle down into them. Their green color is just perfect for spring decorating.
2. Use real or artificial greenery
When there isn’t much greenery growing in the yard, I resort to using some artificial fern fronds in spring decorating. This is a bunch that I swiped from my mother’s apartment since I don’t use many artificial plants in our house.
3. Wrap your stemware with green beads
4. Perch some limes on your glasses
5. Incorporate a few unexpected green items
Jean placed two of these antique glass bowls on her table and plopped these little green orbs into them. They can become a great conversation starter because they belonged to her mother. Any dark green glass pieces or green items such as birdhouses would be a lovely addition on a spring table.
Such a lovely table setting for this time of year when we’re all craving more green in our lives.
