St. Patrick’s Day is this Sunday. Yay for green beer and parades and loud Irish music! It’s just a fun day where we pinch each other for no reason and try to speak in Irish accents. While I don’t usually decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, I’m open to bringing a bit of green into my home. It’s a nice segway into spring, and some green will remind me that this winter is almost over!
When decorating for holidays, I like to use items I already own. I just shop the house for pieces that will work. For St. Patrick’s Day, I looked for green items (duh!), as well as anything else that fit the feeling of the holiday.
I love the different hues of green I found around my home in everything from flowers, to vintage hardback books to a lone mixing bowl. I also rediscovered a rock that I already had that reminded me of Ireland. I love the bits of moss stuck on it! And, finally I had to include my claddagh ring, a traditional Irish ring that I bought in Dublin. (Fun fact: If you wear it with the heart pointing towards you, it means you’re taken. If you wear it pointing out, it means you’re single!)
I hope you’ll feel inspired by the items I found around my home to decorate your home for St. Patrick’s Day. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to embellish your home for a holiday, and it can still be beautiful and festive! Enjoy!
