Using Simple Burlap and various yarns instead of ribbons.

With only 3 days left until her wedding, Julianne Plauche will be welcoming her bridesmaids, future mother in law, mother, aunts and girlfriends to Dallas by hosting an Irish bridal evening. After all, she is to wed the kicker for the New York Jets, Nick Folk on Saturday, March 17th (St Patrick's Day)
A few days of Irish themed festivities have been planned.
As most people know I am not a fan of the typical green beer and shamrock but when it comes to real shamrock,that's a different story. I have used plenty of shamrock along with 'Dianthus' to create these simple arrangements for our tables tomorrow night.

Looking for something small and simple for St Patricks Day? May I suggest an Irish Linen Tea Towel?
'Linen' is a very broad category nowadays as everything from sheets to pillow cases are lumped into this category. Irish linen is made from flax. These products only improve with age. They hold water much better than regular cotton and can be machine washed. The photo on the right is actually a cotton tea towel. The linen products have various patterns from the 'Doors of Dublin' to 'Family Names' and much more. They are available on my facebook store.

An Irish Wedding

It's that time of the year again. Green dye is added to just about everything from beer to cupcakes. March 17th is of course St Patricks Day and we will see so much green between now and then, that the color blue will be so welcome come March 18th!
For one young lady, this day is particularly special. March 17th 2012 is not only St Patricks Day but indeed her wedding day. Julianne Plauche is to wed Mr Nick Folk, kicker for the New York Jets football team. Green has not escaped them either and is being used in some very tasteful ways.
On Thursday March 15th, I have the honor of creating an Irish Bridal Shower for the bridal party. Neither Julianne or Nick are from Irish descent. Julianne explained that each and every St Patricks Day holds special memories for them, so choosing this date was inevitable.
