Irish-Inspired Arrangements

Posted by

St. Patricks Day is around the corner, which prompted me to look back at the Irish-inspired flower arrangements Martha and I created for the magazine over the years. You'll need to color your own carnations for two of the arrangements—here's the how-to. These simple flowers look so elegant in Waterford crystal, an import from Ireland.

  • Beautiful flowers love the green coloring of the carnation flowers. Waterford crystal is beautiful and very known in Ireland and Europe.

  • Kev I love how you connected your post to Martha Stewart Living's Pinterest board. Well, other than the fact that I can get lost there for hours! Happy St. Patrick's day!

  • A lovely representation of the beauty of the Emerald Isle, and the Irish people's artisans. And by the way it is true about the 40 shades of green :) Thank you just delightful!
