I have been wanting a tray vignette area in my kitchen that I could change up with every holiday or season. So I strapped the baby on to me, put the 4 year old in the cart and started walking the aisles of Hobby Lobby. (Why can’t they make their baskets big enough to hold an infant car seat?! Ahh) I wanted to find some items to go on a St. Patrick’s Day Vignette that I could use seasonally and also some staple items that I could use in a variety of vignettes through the year.
Pinning decorative things on Pinterest is a love of mine but it never fails I can’t find the same things at the store. The list below should save you from having to circle the store 300 times like I did with two kids in tow! Hopefully this will take the guesswork out of it for you and save you from a toddler meltdown.
My total cost for everything pictured was $61.38. While this is not the most frugal decoration I have ever put together, I do plan to reuse several items throughout the year. The most expensive items were the tray and the books. I plan to use those in most of not all styled vignettes in this area. When you subtract those two items, the seasonal portion was just over $20. I also typically reuse my seasonal decorations (even if it is in a different place) for several years so this gets to be really reasonable when you consider that.
Finding the Decorations
Everything for this St. Patrick’s Day Vignette came from Hobby Lobby except for the gold coins.
St. Patrick’s Day Seasonal Items
The shelf sitter Leprechaun and the Wood block were located in the St. Patrick’s Day seasonal area of the store.
The bottles were in the glass area. In my store it is in the middle of several aisles that have candles, mirrors etc. There is one full aisle of glass and colored glass vases and jars.
The decorative books were in the center of the store among the decor that is displayed in the middle.
The Floral stems were just located among the white flowers in the floral Department.
Wood Box – I couldn’t find the wood box/tray online. I found it on the Farmhouse aisle on the bottom shelf. They have tons of fun trays that I found all over the store.
Everything but the Flower Stems were 50% off when I went shopping.
Gold Plastic Coins – The coins came from the Dollar Tree & were with the Seasonal St. Patrick’s Day decor.
Setting up the St. Patrick’s Day Vignette
Stack your books on the left of your tray, then stack the St. Pat’s Lucky Box Sign and the Shelf Sitter Leprechaun to the right of the box. Set up the 3 Glass jars as shown in the picture. Then trim about 1/2 of the stem from each of the flowers and place in the shortest jar. Sprinkle a few gold coins around and you have a cute, seasonal St. Pat’s set up that you can easily switch out for multiple seasons and holidays.
