I’m all over any holiday with a specific color palette. Christmas: red and green. Valentines’ day: pink and red. Columbus day? When was the last time you decorated for Columbus Day? Maybe law-makers need to make the official color yellow or something. Wouldn’t you be all over Columbus Day then? Already, I digress. St. Patrick’s Day: green! I love me some green! I also like St. Patty’s because I am part Irish. My grandmother was full-blooded Irish, though born in Brooklyn. So, of course, I’m all about adding in some simple DIY projects around the house. For the most part, these are super simple tutorials and ideas and shouldn’t take you much time at all to add in just enough green to your home to save you from the dreaded pinch.
Every Irish-loving household needs a wreath to adorn the front door that screams, “kiss me, I’m Irish”. Try out this moss shamrock DIY. Add some peas in glass canisters underneath some beautiful candles to get your green in.
Take a more traditional and subtle approach to St. Patrick’s day with a traditional Celtic pattern stenciled on a tablecloth. Or brighten up your space with some fun balloon arrangements like those from Geronimo Balloons.
Try out some simple St. Patrick’s day streamers with this super simple DIY that should take you no time at all.
Pottery barn has some lovely green mercury vases that you can add some fresh greens to to spice up the Patty’s day spirit. Or try this boxwood shamrock wreath for your door with a lovely ribbon.
Do you go all out for St. Patrick’s day? Or do you have the obligatory touch of green? Tell me how you celebrate the day, I’d love to hear your ideas!
