St. Patrick’s Decorations – The Holiday Hutch
Top O’ The Morning!
It’s time for the green…
I really enjoy decorating for St. Patrick’s Day. It is time for that touch of whimsy with mischievous leprechauns everywhere. After Valentine’s Day with all the red and pink, green (being their complementary color) is especially refreshing to look at.
Around my house we refer to St. Patrick’s Day as the celebration of the “Wee Folk.” It’s a good time to put out any fairies or other magical Wee Folk that you have, especially if they are wearing green.
St. Patrick’s Holiday Hutch Tips
Stay with different shades of green as your color scheme. If you need a secondary color use yellow (because the daffodils are in bloom.)
Use items with different heights and build up height variations from underneath if need be.
Use other green pretties (not only St. Patrick’s decorations) to add interest
You can use themed greeting cards either standing up or leaning against the back to add interest
Use books that match the theme. Books about Irish Blessings, Ireland, Celtic information, Staying with the Celtic side of it all you could even put out Scottish objects.
Put out a framed photo of the Irish countryside or an Irish castle. If you’ve never visited Ireland and don’t have your own Irish photos you could print out a photo from the internet and place it in a frame and stand it up or place against the back of the hutch.
Meet Sir Lepp
He is the newest addition to my St. Patrick’s decorations. He is hand carved by a painting buddy of mine, Dorae. Isn’t he just the cutest! He is only 8 1/2 inches tall but his presence is so much more…Welcome Sir Lepp and thank you Dorae for letting him come live with me!
Amazing Advantages of the Holiday Hutch
The more items you put in the Holiday Hutch the better it looks. You will not believe how many items you can put on each of the shelves. Quite frankly it’s “AMAZING”, I love it and I’m sure you will too!!!
