St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and with it comes the official start of spring! Many people enjoy spending time outdoors this time of year, soaking up the sunshine, marveling at the blooming flowers, and gazing at the greenery. But why leave that rejuvenating feeling outside?
You can bring the outdoors in with faux or real greenery and flowers that reflect the colors and energy of this special holiday and season.
Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered! In this article, we’ll be introducing ReadyFestive’s two St. Patrick’s Day decor boxes and sharing tips for capturing the essence of Irish cheer and springtime with your decor.
Theme Box #1: Classic
ReadyFestive’s Classic St. Patrick’s Day decor box is perfect for a farmhouse-style home or a home that favors neutral colors. It includes muted colors like sage green, beige, and off-white.
Hand selected for their airy, earthy feel, some of the items in this box include a lavender sage candle, wooden shamrocks, a green plaid table runner, a St. Patty’s Day-themed pillow, wooden beads, and a white flower vase.
Whether decorating the fireplace mantle or creating a centerpiece, this box helps set a peaceful and chic atmosphere perfect for the Irish holiday.
Theme Box #2: Modern
ReadyFestive’s Modern St. Patrick’s Day decor box is all about bright, bold colors! It features eye-catching greens and rainbow accents to bring a playful, cheery vibe to your indoor decor.
Some of the fun, unique items in the box include a green “Lucky” sign with rainbow accents, a colorful beaded garland, stemless shamrock wine glasses, an adorable stuffed leprechaun, and vibrant green napkins.
Don’t be afraid to embrace the colors in this box! You can tone down bright shades and make them blend in with your other decor by adding natural elements like plants. The following section will explain how to do exactly that.
4 Ways to Decorate with Real or Faux Greenery
Whether you’re going for a classic and subtle aesthetic or a bright, modern look, incorporating real and faux greenery can enhance your decor and bring the lovely springtime atmosphere indoors. Here are our top tips for adding greenery to your home:
1. Add More Plants to Your Space
If you want to bring the freshness of the outdoors inside, look no further than the humble houseplant. Plants will not only add life and texture to your room, but also complement your St. Patty’s Day decor perfectly with their green color.
Any green plant fits the bill, but if you really want to play up the holiday theme, consider Irish ivy or the shamrock plant. Irish ivy features deep green and yellow hues, giving off a cheery, bright energy, while the shamrock plant boasts shamrock-shaped leaf clusters.
2. Update Your Door with a Green Wreath
Decorating your door with a festive green wreath is an excellent way to usher in guests and brighten up your entrance this St. Patrick’s Day. You can buy a wreath or break out your crafts and make your own.
For a little extra whimsy, place one of the leprechauns from the Classic or Modern boxes in the wreath to welcome your guests upon arrival!
3. Fill Mason Jars to Create Centerpieces and Floral Accents in Your Home
Mason jars come in handy for many things, but have you ever thought about turning them into festive vases? That’s right—you can easily transform a mason jar into an eye-catching vase to beautifully display flowers and greenery.
Simply paint the outside of clean mason jars. We suggest muted shades of green and white for a classic look, and brighter greens (and possibly rainbow accents) for a more fun, modern approach. To achieve a rustic look, use fine sandpaper to brush away the paint on the raised lettering after the paint has dried.
Then, fill the jars with faux or real flowers and greenery. Some good options include eucalyptus branches, green or white carnations, white or green-dyed daises, white blossom branches, and olive branches.
4. Deck Out Your Bar Cart
What’s an Irish holiday without a themed beverage? It’s an excuse for something special- Irish coffee, Guinness, Jameson, whiskey, or Baileys cocktail!
If you have a bar cart or plan on getting one, here are some tips to up the festive feel:
- Add a touch of green: From napkins and bar accessories to plants and flowers, incorporate as much green on your cart as you like to give your bar cart a St. Patty’s Day makeover. Get creative and use an array of shades of green like emerald, sage, or mint to create a striking palette.
- Add finishing touches: Pepper your cart with Irish-themed trinkets and decor pieces like a sign, table runner, festive coasters, themed glasses, and a garland.
- Don’t forget the drinks: Get in the Irish spirit by pouring classic Irish beverages like Guinness or Jameson, or creating a special green cocktail.
