Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s Day?

The other day, a reader commented how she loved all the St. Patrick’s Day ideas shared at last week’s link party, but she doesn’t decorate for St. Patrick’s Day.

If you don’t… it’s perfectly okay.

But, if you enjoy splashing a little seasonal color in your house, the mantel or buffet or entry table might just be the perfect place.   There’s no need to go green everywhere unless you’re a Spartan fan.  It’s fun to have a spot in your home just for some fun “holiday” decorating.  And if you regularly entertain guests or your child’s friends pop by often… those little decor moments will truly bring a smile.  And for me… that’s what it’s all about.

I know you’ll want to see more of my simple and easy St. Patrick’s Day decor created with found objects, a bit of scrapbook paper, and my favorite… book pages!! It’s all here.


Speaking of St. Patrick’s Day…

WOW!  I cannot believe how many fun ideas were shared at last week’s party.  You guys are amazing!!!  I’m extra excited to see what you bring this week.

I love to see your smiling face. Thanks so much for popping by each week with all your great ideas!


Just in case you missed all the extraordinary goodness from this past week…

  2. Jenna says

    hi Diane! thanks so much for the weekly party fun! YES we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day now in a big way since our granddaughter was born on March 17, 2013! Lucky us!

    • Diane says

      There couldn’t be a more perfect reason to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day big time!!

  3. Hi Diane! Thanks so much to you and the ladies for hosting! Wishing you a happy week!

    • Diane says

      You are so sweet Cindy! Hope your weekend has been beautiful! [hugs]

  4. At #379 I may be the last to the party but here nonetheless! I enjoyed your sweet post about your hubby caring for you by making sure you get your hot chocolate and a cookie. I think you are a lot like me in that I find it so hard to slow down. Even if we sit down to watch a movie (which is not often) I have to keep my hands busy. Peace . . .
    Thanks for hosting Diane and have a blessed week my friend,

    • Diane says

      Awww… thanks for your sweet words. It’s funny Patti… I remarked that I would do something when I wasn’t busy and my husband responded… “You are always busy, I’ve never known a time when you weren’t.” I guess that’s a bit telling. 😉 Glad you joined the party… better late than never! [[hugs]]

  5. Thanks for hosting!

    • Diane says

      Hope you’re enjoying some sunshine and warmer temps in your neck of the woods today!
      Thanks Sherry for joining in the fun here! [hugs]

  6. Trigger finger posted too quickly – Thank you for your Encouraging post :)!

    • Diane says

      And thank YOU for stopping by and leaving your kind words, Simone.
      All the best for an extraordinary day!
