St. Patrick's Decor at Work


I hope you have a Happy St. Patrick's Day tomorrow! Welcome to all those who are stopping by from Cuisine Kathleen's 8th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl So glad you are here to join in the fun!

Although my pictures aren't the best (sorry - cell phone), I wanted to share with you, the St. Patrick's themed décor I provided for the Staff Room at my workplace.

Adding seasonal décor to this area helps boost morale and provides a fun atmosphere during our coffee breaks.

And what's more fun than three leprechauns and their pots of gold captured in glass vases?

The shamrock details on the vases are the vinyl press-on variety from the Dollar Store. I've had the leprechauns and pots-of-gold for many years.
The gold coins are chocolate which were later uncased from the vases and shared with staff.

Faux boxwood and a shamrock pick were placed in green mason jars.

Though the blueberry muffins didn't fit the Irish theme they were still delicious!

Perhaps you can put something similar together for your St. Patrick's table using these ideas.


Yes, these 3 smiling Irishmen added the perfect backdrop to our March coffee breaks at work.

Thanks for visiting!
Of course, I'll be linking this post to

Lori, this is so cute and even more wonderful because you did this for your coworkers. I love that, and I know they must have loved it too! Very cute ideas that we all can use in tablescapes as well!

How sweet of you, Lori, to decorate the table at your workplace. I am sure everyone appreciated your ideas and they always like something to eat. So cute putting the leprechauns in the vases. I know your table was a hit at work and will be for Kathleen's blog crawl.

Well, how nice of you to treat the work staff to such a pretty table vignette! Pretty decor always makes the work environment much more pleasant. The leprechauns in the hurricanes are just darling, and thanks for the idea of the press-ons from the Dollar store to add a festive touch. The blueberry muffins look so tasty, too. Happy St. Patrick's Day! ☘

What fun!! You did a fab job of decorating up the staff room at work. I really miss doing the office decor. The leprechauns look precious all cooped up in the candle holders. Very, very nice.... great job making simple look fabulous.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
Hugs,
Candy

This is amazing...I can tell you, our nurses station break room never looked this good! I need some of your Faux boxwood & have put it on my shopping list, along with a stop at the $$$ store for those vinyl cling-ons. Too cute!
The whole scene is adorable!!
I must get another cuppa tea & wander about your blog a wee bit more, as I've missed so much lately.

Hi DD!
I just love those leprechauns, so cute! It is so nice you take the time to make the workplace festive. I used to decorate the Teacher's Room, but I don't think anyone does it anymore. Thanks so much for your loyalty to the Blog Crawl. I was so happy to see my old friends come out for it! Happy Easter too!
