Bay windows are such a great addition to any house. They increase the beauty of a home, completely change the look of the outside of the house, and they are fun to decorate on the inside all year round.
This St. Patrick’s Day take advantage of that bay window and dress it up for this fun early spring holiday. And even if you don’t have a bay window in your home to use, or your bay window is being used as a seating area, any of these ideas will also work just by placing a table in front of a large window.
St. Patrick’s Day Green Glass
Everyone knows that the color of St. Patrick’s Day is green. From wearing green to prevent getting pinched and green dyed rivers, to green beer being served to celebrating pub patrons; green is the color du jour on March 17th.
So why not join in the green fun and decorate your bay window or table with multiple pieces of green glass. You can find green glass at almost any antique store, at your grandmother’s house or even at your local thrift store. Just pick up a couple of pieces that you like and display them in your window.
You can find green vases, bottle, cups, plates, and many other different items made from green glass that can be displayed in your window alone, or holding everyday items like candy or flowers.
St. Patrick’s Day Rainbows
Many people with bay windows or tables in front of their windows like to put plants on display in these areas. The closeness to the window gives the plant plenty of sunshine to grow, but it also lets people on the outside see the nice greenery you have.
This St. Patrick’s Day don’t just display your everyday plants, add a little luck and color in also. To add the rainbow colors that are associated with St. Patrick’s Day, purchase fake flowers that are in the different colors of the rainbow (red, purple, blue, orange, yellow, and green). Take the flowers and put them all together in a large vase or even a simple basket.
For the greenery, go all the way for St. Patrick’s Day and put out shamrock plants (real or fake) in the window.
Shamrock Garland for St. Patrick’s Day
For those that don’t want to make any big changes to what they have displayed in their bay windows or on their window table, simply take shiny shamrock garland and work it around the items that you already have displayed.
You won’t have to move or change anything, and you will still add a touch of St. Patrick’s Day to your bay window.
