How to Decorate for St. Patrick's Day - Tastefully

Updated: Mar 20, 2019

Every year it's tacky fake beards, giant green hats, and plastic beer mugs - which is all fun and fine, but every now and then, it's time for some taste...


As excited as I get for St. Patrick's Day to roll around, I am often disappointed in what I see in stores. Don't get me wrong, cheesy shamrock-shaped beads, bright green t-shirts, and tacky hats and glasses may have their place out in the bars on St. Patrick's, but at home, I personally like to dress things up with a touch of sophistication and playfulness.


Here are a few homey touches, some Salem & Binx favorites, I thought I'd share, in case you too are seeking not-so-easy-to-find inspiration...


1. Rock Some Shamrocks ☘️

These three-leaf beauties will add natural greenery and playfulness to any spot where they can get indirect light, inside or out. They're usually available at your local nursery or floral shop - keep out of reach of cats though.

2. Map it Out πŸ“

A classy minimalistic map can add richness to any space, and what better time of year to find one of Dublin?!

3. Pub Crawl πŸ₯ƒ

Speaking of maps, these etched glasses will have you wanting your whiskey on the rocks - and on the streets of Dublin.

4. Mid-Century Voyage ✈️

Add some playfulness to your space with old school travel art depicting castles and landmarks of the old country.

5. Shamrocks and Shimmer ✨

Whether you bathe with them or place them in a basket for your bathroom to hold their fresh scent, these pretty looking bath bombs are too fun to pass up.

6. Writer's Wit πŸ–‹

Sometimes the best way to honor a holiday dedicated to Irish culture is to indulge in the written works from Irish writers - take it from these guys.

7. Vintage Lit πŸ“š

Antique books are a seasonal decor must for me. While antiquing, keep an eye out for green and gold covers, especially any on such subjects as Irish history or Irish folklore.


8. Sunday Best πŸ•―

One treasure I brought back with me from Ireland was a candle made by Rowan Beg Design - and I gotta say nothing feels homier than having one of these make your place smell wonderful. I purchased Cozy Winter Fireside, but for St. Patrick's I'd love to try Grandad's Sunday Best...

9. Shades of Green πŸ›‹

Ring in Spring with these charming green pillows, cute for St. Patrick's Day, as well as for the rest of the season.


10. Old Ireland πŸ–Ό

Add a taste of Γ‰rie to your place by collecting unique hand-drawn illustrations or engravings of Irish villages and castles.
