Blog reader Helene from North Carolina keeps her altar simple. She says:
The altar for Imbolc is a simple one. A silver altar cloth for the goddess,
a lush white flower arrangement with plenty of greenery to symbolize the
earth beginning to waken again from it's winter slumber. A white candle for the
Goddess and one for the God flank a chalice of wine and a bowl of
blackberries, a fruit sacred to Brighid. The Goddess image candleholder reminds me a
lot of Brighid, holding the sacred flame. A green cloth representing
Brighid's mantle is draped across the altar.
