Simple experiences create the most meaningful memories. We know there is so much truth in this statement, as we’ve experienced this countless times ourselves. Yet, so often, we find ourselves worrying over the details, stressing about the menu, or wondering if our homes are enough. We’re here to remind you that you are enough. Your home is enough. And those worries you have aren’t moving you toward why you’re really opening your doors to friends and family: for connection. So, this month as you consider celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at home, embrace simple decor that lasts the whole season and easy, approachable recipes that hold the essence of the holiday. Easy. Simple. Meaningful.
Simple Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Home
Take inspiration from St. Patrick’s Day and choose muted hues that embrace the holiday while also maintaining a simple allure. Kelly green becomes softened sage and olive tones. Shiny and bright gold becomes a matte version of itself, seamlessly blending into your tabletop design while adding a statement of sophisticated luxury. In lieu of a pure white, opt for softened cream colors which exude soothing comfort and peace. These spins on the classic holiday colors offer notes of calm and ease while also being ideal for the entire season, well past this festive day.
The Simple Details
While the overall look is polished, this design is made of small, simple details to maintain an approachable aesthetic. There’s no need to incorporate anything but simplicity when it comes to napkin folds, dinnerware or greenery. In fact, did you notice there aren’t even candles in this design? Despite the fact that our tried-and-true centerpiece medley recipe includes candles, it’s okay if we don’t include every ingredient either. (Read: No matter how you employ our tablescape recipe, whatever you design is a success!) So, go simple and understated when designing a tablescape this St. Patrick’s Day at home. You might be surprised by how polished and sophisticated your creation looks.
Our touches of simplicity for this tablescape included a loose-knot napkin fold along with uncomplicated, fresh greenery of carnations and seeded eucalyptus.
