Do you decorate for this? I never have, but thought some of you may go all out
I don't go all out. Did make a St. Patrick's wreath last year. Had a lot of help from kind posters on the board. Hung it last night. Should do something for back door, also.
Have had some fabric to make placemats for several years. Just can't seem to get at them. Also Valentine's fabric, but not made up either.
Won't keep the wreath on the entire month since another holiday is this month too.
Should get out my green mugs and put up the Valentine ones. The green ones are with the Christmas mugs.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's decor and tablescapes.
Friends divide our sorrows and multiply our joys.
I usually hang a shamrock on the front door for a few days, but I don't do anything else.
I don't personally decorate for this one day holiday, but for those who do wish to can consider a theme outdoor flag that is easy to change and won't put a dent in the wallet.
Another way is to replace outdoor lights with a bit o green bulbs. :-)
As it usually falls in lent I never do anything special for this day other than perhaps getting one of the shamrock plants from the grocery store to use as a centerpiece for a week or so. Them move it to the kitchen window. Decorative a around the house are Easter and I don't want to put th away. So st paddys at linderhof is just a pot of shamrocks

Since part of my heritage is Irish, I have quite a few decorations. So...there will be several replies to follow and I will indicate when the last one is posted.
I have a large walking doll from my childhood in the DGK's room and she gets different outfits for the holidays.
Here she is in her pleated plaid skirt and brown brogues with my version of a Tam O'Shanter.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Christmas Candy,
I also have the dining room table set for the holiday.

The little shamrock lights came from Target dollar spot.
A neighbor gave me the world's largest leprechaun:

The outside garage lights get tinsel shamrocks from Doll. Tr. and foil shamrocks attached to door with magnets.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Christmas Candy,
I also have outdoor flags that change for the different holidays:
Finally, the new wreath I made for the front door and a plaque from Doll. Tr.
It will be a very quick turn-around to switch to Easter after this holiday, but I just enjoy decorating for the holidays and since my maiden name is Irish, I couldn't ignore the chance to decorate for this holiday.
OOPS, this really is the last one, I forgot the curio cabinet.
Did I do something wrong?
Is there an unwritten rule to # of pictures one should post?
I posted photos on Mar. 4 and the thread died, no comments, no other posts, nothing.
So I thought I would see if I committed a faux pas?
That way I could avoid duplicating my error in the future.
Candy, I don't think you did anything wrong!! I just looked at this post this morning and I am in AWE over you decorations. I am also Irish and have been blessed to have visited Ireland. I have a few Irish decorations but they are pretty much scattered. Love what you have put together. I'm going to show this post to one of my daughters, she dearly loves all things Irish. She has the red hair and blue eyes that are so common there. She was very happy as she looked like everyone else instead of standing out with her red hair.
CC, you are amazing! I do not have enough ambition to do all of that for each holiday! It is all lovely!
CC, I love looking at your decorating pictures. I just don't know where you get your energy for all the holiday decorating you do! I enjoy your picture postings so do as many as you want!
