I’m so excited to be joining some talented bloggy friends today to share St. Patrick’s Day decor with you! One of my best blogging friends, Meg from Green With Decor, put this hop together. Meg loves everything Green – check out how she remodeled her home in her home tour!
My husband and I aren’t the fancy type, to be honest. In fact, I think the last time we did something fancy was the night that he proposed – and that’s if you call indulging yourself in chocolate fondue fancy. However, we are big fans of all things Irish! We actually don’t even realize that they’re Irish – but give us a beer and a reuben Sandwich, you’ll have us satisfied for days!
Okay, that story had nothing to do with what I’m sharing with you today – except that I mentioned the Irish! This St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape is actually the first table setting I’ve put together – because that’s just something we just don’t really do in our house. Even when we have a big Christmas dinner, my family and I just grab a stack of Chinet and some plastic cups, because who wants to do dishes for all those people?
I kid, I kid…. kinda. Any who, I love how simple this table setting is – and I love how it is subtly screaming, “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!”
To make this tablescape festive but not over the top cheesy, I combined a couple of my favorite things:
White and Black
I found this table runner during the Christmas season at Target! It’s not too Christmassy, it’s perfect for any time of year. I also made these gold scalloped mason jars, and filled them with some pretty foliage I bought. You can find the full tutorial for the cute jars here. I also threw a bouquet of white roses together to bring in another element. I kept the centerpiece short so that conversation isn’t hindered by the large centerpiece. You can learn how to make a bouquet like this here.
I think everything is more important with meaning. So, for the place settings I added a simple print out with a celtic knot and an old Irish proverb. You can download that printable for FREE right here!
Here’s a fun idea! To get your friends together for St. Patrick’s Day, put together a fun dinner with your favorite Irish foods and invite everyone to cherish the evening. Don’t forget to check out everyone else’s fun ideas for St. Patrick’s Day!
