2.   Green for Brighid's Green Mantle
 she wears,
3.  Plants to symbolize growth 
the coming of spring,

4.  Brighid's Crown, flowers, garden bulbs, 
white candles,
5.  A Brighid's Cross or Celtic Knot work, 

Other symbol's of the Goddess may be 
1. A Brighid Corn Doll,
2. Healing Herbs,
3.  Faeries, Brighid is a Sister of the Fae, 

A lot to put together !!!
