Though it is the quintessential color of spring, somehow green only seems to make it into a bouquet incidentally, through a stem or a leaf. Combining different shades of green, these floral arrangements demonstrate that the color is truly worthy of its own display.
Rinse the pink ink from a heart-shaped rubber stamp, and use it (and a green ink pad) to add shamrocks to napkins, coasters, and more. To make a swizzle stick, stamp a clover pattern onto card stock, and draw a stem with a colored pencil; repeat. Cut out with a 1-inch circle craft punch. Glue circles together, back sides facing, onto a skewer.
Dress up any St. Patrick's Day meal by adding shamrocks made of green peppers to your plate. Slice a green bell pepper widthwise; it will reveal a shamrock or lucky four-leaf clover shape. Slice another pepper lengthwise to create stems. You can also present it to kids as a lucky snack -- just serve with your child's favorite dip.
