Thursday’s Theme: St. Patrick’s Day

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Most of St. Patrick’s Day decor is pretty versatile, in that you can incorporate your spring decor into it, and especially anything green. Other St. Patrick’s Day themes include shamrocks, pots of gold, and cheery displays – and we have suggestions for you based on these themes for showing your spirit on March 17th, whether you choose to DIY or make some lucky decor investments.

Enchanted Forest Wreath

Shamrock Decorative

Any floral arrangement that incorporates natural elements, with green being the dominant color, is a more classic decorating technique for this holiday. This includes (but is not limited to!) bouquets, wreaths, garland, or even images and prints of flowers in different shades of green or among green grass.

But, if you’re looking for a little more sparkle, decorations like this green shamrock can be found in many craft stores at any budget – and it looks great in a window or on a plain wall.

Green RibbonIf you’re more of a minimalist decorator, simple green ribbon can be used to tie back curtains, decorate a glass vase of flowers, or be used for anything ¬†else within your decorative imagination!

Luck of the Irish Printout

Finally, printouts are always a good (and easy!) idea for holiday decorating. This 5 x 7 can go in any frame of your choosing, or, create your own printout to fit that favorite picture frame in your living room. Place next to flowers or other St. Patrick’s Day decor for a complete look.

Did you use any of our suggestions? We’d love to know how you’ve decorated!

Wednesday Spotlight: Spectacular Shamrocks

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Sheep & Shamrock Braided Jute Chair PadThe shamrock symbol can be traced back to about as early as the 5th century. The patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, used this symbol which is now commonly associated with the internationally celebrated March 17th Feast Day – or, as we know it, St. Patrick’s Day.

Shamrock Jute TrivetFor those of you wanting to decorate your home in green for this holiday, or are looking to proudly display your Irish heritage all year long, we feature some great shamrock-themed items you are sure to enjoy.

Braided Shamrocks

A customer favorite, our braided rugs, stair treads, trivets, and chair pads stand the test of time and the feat of decor coordination. This holds true for general and seasonal decorating, as we like to offer products that can be used for those special times of year, as well as for the rest of the year. Our Sheep & Shamrock selection – featuring Stair Treads, an Oval Rug, and Chair Pads – is great for St. Patrick’s Day, but is also fitting for spring decorating.

Sheep & Shamrock Braided Jute Stair Tread

Our Shamrock Jute Trivet coordinates nicely with this selection, and that’s right, all of these items are made from durable, earth-friendly braided jute. What’s better, they reverse to a non-shamrock back, so you can use them even when shamrocks are not in season.
