There is an old saying that “everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.”
In addition to wearing green clothes and shamrock hats, consider giving your home a little Touch of the Irish as well with these decorating tips. These ideas are easy to implement, and can be left in place long after the thrill of being Irish for a day wears off.
The easiest way to bring a little Irish charm to your home is by adding shades of green. Green candles are an inexpensive way to introduce shades of green into any space. They can be strategically placed on tables, fireplace mantles and even on nightstands. In the photo above, a series of green candles were arranged and displayed in a traditional wood-burning fireplace. You don’t have to get this elaborate with your candles. Something as simple as gluing green fabric and some beads to a mint-colored candle can be attractive.
Table centerpieces also can add a Touch ‘o the Irish to your dining area. The arrangement pictured above is just one of many creative ways you can bring greenery to your table. Don’t like floral arrangements? Consider doing the same thing with a clear vase and some green apples. Tie a bow around the bottom of the base to dress it up a bit.
