St. Patrick’s Day is approaching and Easter is right on it’s heels this year!
I really like to decorate for each holiday, even the smaller ones like St. Patrick's Day. It’s just fun to have an excuse to add a little change here and there.
For small holidays like St. Patrick's Day, my decorating budget is very low. This year is is a whopping $5.00. I know, I‘m going all out aren't I?! LOL
I decided this year to use what I had in the theme of green and white with a little gold thrown in here and there. So, my $5.00 will be just a few little dollar store things that I can throw out after the holiday if I want to and not take up any more room to be stored.
So, things are low key and simple around Casa Chaos for St. Paddy’s Day this year.
I actually bought 4 Dollar Store Items…
Window clings…because it is mandatory for every holiday here!
A fun whimsical free standing Shamrock
A package of paper plates for a fun St. Paddy’s Day table.
A package of Shamrocks just to scatter throughout the white, green and gold décor.
So, let’s look around shall we?
A green and cream checked cloth napkin along with my stripped down green and white tabletop topiary and a white ironstone tureen.
Another wall shelf. This glass candle holder is actually holding one of those gelled jar air freshener. The shamrock inside hides it nicely even though the gel is dark green.
Another tabletop. Looking through my shamrock plant (4 years alive…woohoo…a major accomplishment for me!).
Throwing in some pretty brass candlesticks and my thrifted gold bird candleholders.
So, as you can see, I really did use the everyday things in my home for my St. Patrick’s Decorating this year. That one package of foam shamrocks just added the right amount to say “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!”
