St. Patrick’s Day DIY Decor and Recipes

Hey Lovelies! I have always loved celebrating St. Patrick’s Day every year since I was a kid. My mom would make a delicious corned beef with cabbage and put up shamrock decorations. This Irish meal is one of my favorite and I have definitely carried on the tradition of decorating from my Mom. Today, I have a few decor ideas and some recipe links you need to try for St. Patrick’s Day:

This is a fun way to add some Irish spirit into your home. I put mine on my dining room hutch. You can purchase everything you need to make this from the dollar store (it only costs $3 to make!) Watch the DIY, here.

Tablescape Idea

DIY Potted Faux Flowers

A simple tablescape idea, is to use different vases and pots to hold green flowers and stems. Looks perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, but it can be used all throughout Spring, as well! I placed all my flowers on top of a burlap table runner. See how I made my potted flowers, here.

Place Setting Idea

St. Patrick's Day Place Setting

I kept things simple with the place setting. I bought these green place mats from the dollar store- they aren’t something I would normally buy, but when they are paired with everything, I thought they looked great! Then I used white plates, and tied all the silverware together with a burlap ribbon.

Recipe Ideas

Buttered Yellow Potatoes

Corned Beef w/ Carrots and Cabbage

Irish Soda Bread

Irish Butter Shortbread Cookies

Irish Apple Cake

My menu for St. Patrick’s Day includes¬†Buttered Yellow Potatoes (see my recipe, here), Corned Beef with Carrots and Cabbage (Allrecipes.com), Irish Soda Bread (Allrecipes.com), Irish Butter Shortbread Cookies (Rachel Gaffney’s), and Irish Apple Cake (The Kitchen McCabe). For all the baking, I substituted gluten free flour for regular flour and coconut sugar for regular sugar. Everything turned out delicious!
