Decorating for St Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to be bright green, cheesy, and over the top. It can be subtle and elegant with a springtime feel! To honor the collected charm of Ireland, these St Patrick’s Day decorating ideas include plenty of beautiful and wild looking flowers, greenery, moss, and clover.
I wanted to incorporate as much green as possible so I could easily transition into a spring table with little effort. An easy way to make a festive centerpiece is to gather a few items that remind you of Ireland, such as a few green or white candles, shamrocks, and wildflowers.
For a subtle look, you can use earthy greens and browns to decorate your home and still give it a Celtic touch. This is my favorite method, and to tie these items back to Ireland, I love the idea of supporting Irish brands, such as this Waterford flatware.
In this vignette, I used a similar collection of greenery and wildflowers as the tablescape and paired them with this spring printable. As with the tablescape, I could remove the greenery when needed, and we have a dining room that’s ready for the rest of spring!
Decorating with four-leaf clovers or shamrocks is a no-brainer for brining good luck! Ireland is known for their lush landscapes, so including wildflowers, greenery, and clovers in your decor is a subtle nod to the culture.
I freehanded this ancient Irish Blessing on a chalkboard, but there are also many prints that you could display for the season. This blessing honors both nature and spiritualism, which are two main pillars of Irish culture and St Patrick’s Day.
I hope these St. Patrick’s Day decorating ideas inspired you to honor the beautiful country of Ireland and the heritage of Irish American culture. It’s truly such a fun holiday and I believe it’s one with a spirit that can be celebrated by everyone.
