If you're Irish, St. Patrick's Day is a great time to celebrate your roots and honor your ancestors. However, even if you're family is not from this European nation, you can still decorate for the holiday! After all, who doesn't enjoy a fresh pint of beer, tasty corn beef and trendy green motifs? Take a look at these top decorating tips to help get you in the St. Patty's spirit!
- Luck of the Irish: Everyone deserve a little luck! We all know that the shamrock, or four-leaf clover, symbolizes good fortune. Bring this luck into your New York home by planting oxalis plants (which are also known as shamrocks) in green jars. This will look especially chic in your living room or kitchen.
- Green with envy: St. Patrick's Day is all about the color green and what better way to utilize this cool-toned hue than with custom curtains and drapes? Not only are green window fashions festive for the month of March, they are also stylish for the whole year. You can choose a shade such as olive green or a lighter mint to coincide with your tastes.
- Scholarly style: "When decorating for St. Patrick's Day, you don't need to restrict yourself to shamrocks and leprechauns," writes a blogger for Better Homes and Gardens. "Opt instead for something creative and fun that incorporates the color green, such as a collection of antique books. If you can't find books with green binding, wrap the book covers in green construction paper."
