St. Patrick’s Day Wedding: Crafty Decor Ideas
It won’t only be ‘Irish eyes’ smiling at your wedding. Everyone can’t help but beam when they see your ceremony and reception decked out in such merry green touches as these!
At the ceremony
Welcome one and all to the occasion with a homemade bunting banner. Our delightful find from Kiwi Crate features recycled book pages, shamrocks cut from cardstock, and cute button accents.
For your bridal party, imagine your little flower girls carrying adorable ‘kissing balls’ crafted from paper (courtesy of Lia Griffith); while the groomsmen and ring bearer don the cutest shamrock boutonnieres (shared on Live Laugh Rowe) using assorted green fabrics.
At the reception
Come reception time, your guest tables will be on show! So bring on the Irish charm from the place settings to the centerpieces. We just love the stylish simplicity of plates topped with a linen napkin, menu card, and a single clover leaf—found at a real wedding (featured on Snippet and Ink). As well as clever shamrock napkin rings you can easily DIY (with a tutorial from Good Housekeeping).
At mid-table, display the freshest floral accent pieces—inspired by this trio of green Ball jars filled with baby’s breath (found on Cottage at the Crossroads) or these pristine white spring blooms in assorted Irish beer bottles (via Tulipina Floral Design).
Finally, for Irish-themed wedding favors, how fun would it be to surprise guests with ‘homemade leprechaun spirits’ (found brewing on Design Sponge)! Or to present any gift items or sweet treats in DIY packaging topped with fabric four-leaf clovers (thanks to Floridian Weddings).
