Along with a St. Patty's tablescape, I also decorated my bar cart as well. I spent some time the other day setting it up for guests. Here's how it turned out! I'm really happy with it!
I used the same decorations I bought at Dollarama. I cut some shamrock necklaces and made the garland out of it!
I added "green mix" to the top and a bit of fun with Fun Dip. I added some green "bubbles" in a champagne glass for fun and some stir sticks and paper straws on the top of the bar cart! Look at me, all "environmentally friendly"
I decorated the bottom with a couple glasses, more candy and some flowers and books for show!
Any time I have the opportunity to break out the kitty dishes, I'm all in! I added green Hersey kisses!
Aren't they the cutest kitty plates ever!

St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching and I wanted you to take a glimpse of how I prepared my table for us for our meal that day. You will see 4 settings on the table, however, I did this to show 1 setting without the plate charger! I just have to say that I took a whole day and got my pictures all ready, only to put my card in another computer and for some reason, I lost ALL MY PICTURES!! So this is round 2!
Since St. Patrick's Day is mostly green and gold, I have used only green accents on this setting.
I decided to use 2 different goblets for this setting, 2 green large ones, and 2 green small ones! I thought I would mix it up a bit.
I used glitter and plain foam shamrocks to add the feel of St. Patrick's day, and green candy! I purchased the shamrocks at Dollarama, and the green candy at Bulk Barn! In order to give it the St. Patty's feel, I felt that these bits of green gave it just that.
Below is the setting without the charger under it! I also added the third plate and changed up the napkin display.
Below is the setting with the charger! Notice the different napkin shape.
For my centerpiece, I decided on an antique sugar bowl. Inside, I filled it with, what do you know, more candy!
I decided to play around a bit with some shamrock necklaces. I used these for my bar cart decorations, (which you will see soon) and also around the neck of my glasses to differentiate between who's glass is who's!

Are you having guest for St. Patrick's Day? Are you decorating for it?

So in a couple weeks I will be done with my living room remodel! I'm so excited to share it with you! However, now that it is almost complete, I must say, I've got that itch to move on to another room! Now while I had said that my downstairs bathroom, (or as we call it "Our Son's bathroom"), would be the next project, we are at a stand still, because of flooring! Our entrance way flooring runs all the way down the hall into our family room, (Or as we call it "Our Son's bachelor pad"), and into his washroom. Plus a bit goes into our laundry room as well. So re-doing his washroom would then require us to lay all new flooring down stairs, and we just aren't ready for that yet. There is a lot of planning to do before this, like how we will remodel the laundry room etc. So... I guess that means, I have to work on the upstairs. I really, really, want to re-do my kitchen, but because of the extent of work that I will have to do with making it over, I really need to do this in warmer weather, so we can open the windows and doors. The main stair case needs to be redone as well, but there again, I need warmer weather, so we can use our side or back door, to enter the house. Right now with the weather, it really is not the ideal weather to use these doors, as they aren't shoveled and people would track mud all through my home. Now that we are finishing my office, and my nail room, they are out of the question, so that only leaves the bedroom!
I know what you must be saying, "Geez Cheryl, don't you ever finish a project, before you start a new one?" Well to answer that, yes, sort of! Let me explain.... The Major parts of makeover are done, flooring, painting etc, however, furniture pieces still need to be bought. It takes me FOR.EVE.R to find the ones I like and save the money to purchase them, so while the room looks new, there still is "stuff" that needs to be purchased for that said room! Does that make sense? When a room is totally complete, I will for sure do a blog post on the "finished product". Now back to the Master bedroom.... I have been pinning like a mad women! I have some ideas in mind for the over all look, just need to make the final decisions. Here are some of the ideas I am thinking of...
Paint ~ I'm really hoping to go more of a bright white or one of these following ones.
or Balboa Mist by Benjamin Moore
Or White Heaven by Benjamin Moore
Notice, that White heaven is the biggest of the others... lol.... What do you think? (you know the last one is really speaking to me!) For me Benjamin Moore paints are the only paints I use. One of our local store stocks Benjamin Moore paints, thank goodness, so I don't need to go to far to grab paint samples!
If you are in my area, you can purchase Benjamin Moore Paints at Partners Paint and Paper! They have 4 stores to serve all of your paint needs! They can be found here.
Next is Trim! I love decorative trim! We have done it throughout our home and I love the idea of this..
How hard do you think I would have to talk my husband into doing this in our room? He hated doing the last round of trim! But I personally think this look is so classic and nice, and we have a large wall in our bedroom where our bed backs up to. I think it will work perfect!
Next we are looking to upgrade our bed to King size. We currently have a queen, and since having hotel rooms with King beds in it, we have wanted to upgrade to bigger! After purchasing the bed, I am hoping for a headboard like one of these..
Next we need some side tables! I'm looking at these two! Which one is your favorite?
I think I am leaning towards the round one! But can't make up my mind...
And finally a new duvet! I haven't looked around too much at duvets, but here is the idea of the one I am looking at, so you get the jest!
Funny story, I have one similar to the one above that I got for Christmas one year, but with our dog's jumping on it, it got stained and has a little rip in it. I decided to bleach it out one day at the local laundry mat, and without reading the instructions, I dumped the bleach right into the washing machine at the start, and now not only does it have a rip and a stain, but bleach stains on it as well.............. geez!! Yep, if you haven't guessed it already, I have NO PATIENCE!
Help me decide on some of these ideas, would you? Which ones are speaking to you? Which ones are your favorites? If you made it all the way to the end of this blog post, you have a chance to win a "thank you" from me!!
