St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that I want to celebrate, but don’t want to work too hard at, you know? So I had a brainstorm for these easy rainbow flowers for St. Patrick’s Day. All you need are bud vases and a bouquet of grocery store flowers. Total cost: about $20.

I’m guessing that you are, like my family is, self-quarantining as a precaution against coronavirus. We are huddled up, going out only for the essentials. On my last trip to the grocery store, I decided that essentials included fresh flowers and a coconut cake. I guess I want to balance fear with beauty and creativity and sugar!

I’ve actually felt really energized: working on several posts for the blog, decluttering our basement (a perpetual task) and helping my mom get ready to move. Maybe self-isolation is like nesting before a baby? I know my pantry looked REALLY good before the twins came!

This was by far my easiest project. I pulled out a variety of milk glass vases left over from my Nancy Drew mystery birthday party.

Then all I had to do was trim the flowers so they just peeked over the tops of the vases. I choose the colors of the rainbow to work for St. Patrick’s Day. But, this idea would also be great for a rainbow party or Wizard of Oz party centerpiece. All you have to do is remember ROY G. BIV: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. My only caution is that the light blue hydrangeas wilted extremely quickly. Maybe avoid those.

Arrange them in a rainbow-like arch, or in a straight line. I put the vases in a circle on our St. Patrick’s Day table — I’ll share that with you tomorrow.
