How to Decorate with St. Patrick’s Day Decorations
St. Patrick’s Day is the
one day a year when everyone can be Irish. For those throwing a St. Patrick’s
Day party or event, wearing green or simply sharing a pint of Guinness will not
do when it comes to celebration. With a whole world of St Patrick’s Day decorations to choose from, it can be difficult to
determine the best way to accessorize your space for the uniquely Irish
day. The following categories will serve
to help you pick the right combination of St Patrick’s Day decorations for your event, business or home.
Fun with small stuff
If you’re looking to decorate in a subtle and small way, consider
looking for smaller decorations that can be set up on tables or on doorways.
Small shamrock cutouts, green beads or even just a green tablecloth or two can
turn any everyday space into a green celebration machine.
Waving the Green and Orange
Decorating for St Patrick’s Day means not only decking out your space in
green with shamrocks and leprechauns galore, but also finding a way to show
Irish pride. One of the best St Patrick’s
Day decorations to subtly and professionally wave the Irish green and
orange is a St Patrick’s Day pleated fan or pull-down flag. These flags can be
displayed on tables or buffets, behind podiums, or on a stage, if you’re
hosting a bigger production. They’re the perfect durable solution for
businesses that want to show their Irish pride without appearing gaudy or
having to buy shamrock cutouts time and time again.
Green, green, green
One of the easiest ways to decorate for this Irish holiday is to go for
the green theme. Green is the color on everyone’s mind on March 17th,
and when anyone sees verdant decorations, they will know exactly what they
mean. Consider dying small foods like cookies or drinks, as well as changing
tablecloths, curtains or even applying green paint to windows and entryways.
Don’t forget about Ireland!
Nowadays (and particularly in America), St Patrick’s Day is more about
celebrating Irish history and one’s Irish heritage than it is about celebrating
St. Patrick. To keep up this tradition, consider displaying maps and pictures of
Ireland. Celtic symbols, Irish music and even Irish history placards can add
just the right amount of history and culture to your St Patrick’s Day party atmosphere.
