#1: Bring the Emerald Isle to Your Dinner Table

Thrifting dishes to create a beautiful table setting is a no-brainer. Ohio Valley Goodwill often carries vintage dishes that can add a unique look to your everyday wares. Look for green glasses or dishes with green designs. You might even find a green table runner, cloth napkins, or faux flowers to complete the look! As you consider dishes and vases, keep an open mind. Glass vases can be kicked up a notch with a stripe of gold spray paint and some faux greenery. The possibilities are endless!

#2: Keep the Pinches at Bay

If you’re not the type of person who wears green on a regular basis, you’ll definitely want to consider adding something green to your wardrobe to avoid pinches on March 17th. Good news “”  Ohio Valley Goodwill has amazing green clothing and accessories options at affordable prices! And don’t worry; you don’t have to make a big color commitment just for one day of the year.

Look for simple additions that can be added to an existing outfit, such as a green cardigan sweater, a festive hat or scarf, or even green and gold jewelry. Or, if you really want to play it low-key, grab a cute pair of green socks!

#3: Feel the Luck O’ the Irish at Home

Nothing feels better than transitioning your home décor from winter to the first signs of spring. Hints of green for St. Patrick’s Day are a breath of fresh air, but you don’t have to pay retail prices for that festive feeling. With a little creativity, you’ll soon have a home fit for little leprechauns!

Color scheme is key when decorating for St. Patrick’s Day, of course, so look for white, green, gold, and even brass items to liven up your home. Picture frames can always be spray painted if they’re not the right color, and you can easily fill them with homemade artwork or fun written quotes. Another idea is to hunt for four-leaf clovers and press them using wax paper and a book. Anything made from green fabric can be cut into small triangles for a festive pennant banner, too!
