These 10 Festive Displays Will Make You Want to Decorate for St. Patrick’s Day Right Now
If you’re looking for an excuse to get a little festive for St. Patrick’s Day ahead of next week, we’ve got you covered. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about putting a little spring into your home’s step anyway, and this holiday’s hallmark colors—green and gold—feel right for the season. Need some proof? These 10 gorgeous displays below demonstrate that St. Patrick’s Day decor can be lovely all spring long.
1. Get Crafty with Clover
How adorable is this pressed clover artwork that blogger Nora Foran made herself in honor of the holiday? She combined this piece with other emerald accents to create a stunning St. Paddy’s Day-themed vignette featuring items she already owned and just “borrowed” from other rooms of her house. The landscape photos and pastoral vintage painting only add to the charm.
2. Brighten up a Bar Cart
For many, St. Patrick’s Day is a time to indulge in a cocktail or two, so why not deck your bar cart out for the holiday? That’s what Fashionable Hostess blogger, Amanda Gluck, did here to her gold and glass model. All it takes is a few festive touches. Before your crew comes over to celebrate, be sure to stock up on shamrock paper straws and a some simple fresh flowers to make the occasion feel extra cheery.
3. Hang it Up
Add a touch of extra fun to an already welcoming living room by hanging up a sweet banner across the fireplace mantel and incorporating a few hits of green with candles and throw pillows, as blogger Katie Striegel did in her space. The shamrock hanging on top of her mirror is the perfect finishing touch.
4. Dress up a Blanket Ladder
If you happen to have a blanket ladder, give it a holiday makeover with festive accessories. This is kind of setup really makes it easy to rotate out decor as the seasons change because all you have to do is swap in themed textiles. For St. Patrick’s Day, for example, blogger Linda Dresselhaus hung a horseshoe patterned tea towel front and center on her ladder. This little nod to the holiday is bound to help guests feel extra lucky as soon as they walk in the door.
5. Go Green at the Table
Your St. Paddy’s Day dinner party decor just got way better, thanks to this inspo from blogger Kelley Nan. She created a classy, timeless display using green and gold glassware, white tulips, and of course, actual greenery! We bet her guests ‘grammed the entire setup.
6. Add Some Fresh Flowers
Blogger Lory Bernstein also designed a stunning tablescape full of elegant accessories and beautiful spring blooms. A white table runner lets the green bottles to really pop, while silver serving pieces add a touch of understated glam.
7. Write a Message
Blogger Paula Biggs completed a variety of easy craft projects that brought the St. Patrick’s Day spirit to her home, and we can’t take our eyes off her gorgeous chalkboard art in particular. She could have stopped at that festive message, but she chose to play it up with tiny buntings, a shamrock garland, and gold leaf flower pots. The scheme doesn’t feel overwhelming at all because she concentrated most of the St. Patrick’s Day decor in just that one sideboard vignette.
8. Get Fancy with Toile
9. Go Big or Go Home
Take a look at blogger Colleen Pastoor’s incredible oversized balloon, pinwheel, and tissue paper honeycomb ball garland. Unlike some of the other ideas here, you might not want to leave this one up all season, but it’ll sure look sweet over a buffet or dessert table if you are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party or gathering. The rest of Pastoor’s home looks just as lovely decked out for the holiday. She added sparkly gold bottles to her bar cart, tons of beautiful plants and succulents to her dining table, and set out Irish-themed linens to finish the look.
10. Get Pretty and Practical
Instead of officially decorating just for St. Patrick’s Day, blogger Shelley of Calypso in the Country chose to implement a few pops of green here and there throughout her home. She opted for many utilitarian items, such as limes and bottles of seltzer water, which will certainly be useful even after the holiday is over.
