St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to get creative with your decorating, and you can do it on a budget. Whether you’re hosting a party or just want to add some green touches to your home, this list of easy DIY projects will help you celebrate the luck of the Irish in style.
St Patricks Day Decor Ideas
St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, and if you’re looking for some fun ways to decorate your home or office, here are five ideas.
- Get festive with green food coloring.
- Decorate with a leprechaun hat, beard and rainbow glasses.
- Make shamrocks out of paper plates and felt circles, then use them as table decorations or to cover the walls in different rooms.
- Make a St. Patrick’s Day garland using pipe cleaners and glittery beads that will look great hanging from the ceiling or doorway. You can also use it to decorate your cupcakes for the big day!
- Make some fun St Pat’s Day décor with tissue paper flowers that can be hung from the ceiling or on your front door handle for guests to see when they come over to celebrate with you!
The holiday is a celebration of Irish culture as well as the arrival of spring. Here are some festive ideas to make your St. Patrick’s Day party an extra-special occasion.
Make a centerpiece
Fill a vase with green carnations and daffodils, then add some shamrock decorations for the perfect effect.
Add some flair to your food table
Create a fun and festive table by using green plates, cups and napkins. Add some leprechaun figurines or other Irish decorations for an added touch. For dessert, serve up some chocolate coins and pot of gold cookies.
Decorate your home
Bring out all of your green decor pieces from around your house to use as centerpieces or décor pieces for your party. You can also hang up some Irish flags and banners around the room for decoration purposes as well!
Play some Irish music
Music is a great way to set the mood at any event! Play traditional Irish tunes during dinner or after dinner when everyone is mingling together at the party. You can also play modern pop songs with a Celtic twist if you’d like something more upbeat during dinner time!
We are approaching the end of March, and you know what that means. It’s time to start getting your St. Patrick’s Day decor ready!
If you’re looking for some inspiration, I’ve gathered some great ideas from my favorite bloggers to get you started on your way!
St Patricks Day Decor Ideas
I love how this blogger used spray paint to turn her kitchen cabinets into a rainbow. The colors are so bright and fun! This would be perfect for the kids’ room or playroom. And it’s so easy to do too! You can find the tutorial here.
This blogger’s living room is decked out in green and gold and it looks amazing! The black & white striped pillows look so crisp against all that green and gold. She used pom-pom garlands as an accent piece which makes for an easy way to add color without having to buy anything new. The black & white striped pillows also add a nice contrast which makes them stand out even more against all that green & gold! You can find the tutorial here.
St. Patrick’s Day is March 17, and if you’ve ever been to a St. Patrick’s Day parade you know it’s a truly festive occasion. From green beer to leprechauns, shamrocks, and pots of gold — the Irish know how to celebrate!
For those of us who aren’t lucky enough to be Irish (and even if we are!), we can still celebrate with these fun St. Patrick’s Day decorating ideas:
Decorate your windows with green streamers and shamrocks.
Make some homemade Irish soda bread using this recipe from Food Network or this one from Epicurious.
Serve up some Irish stew for dinner or make corned beef and cabbage for lunch. (Here are other great recipes for St. Paddy’s Day.)
Make up some fun cocktails like an Irish Car Bomb shot or a Shamrock Shake from McDonalds (if you’re feeling ambitious).
Dress up in green clothing and accessories, such as a hat or necklace with shamrocks on them, or wear green lipstick!
