Fab Green Decor
What’s St. Patrick’s Day without a huge blowout celebration? Here at Shindigz, we love the Irish holiday because it makes us want to party! So why not make it epic? When styling our St. Patrick’s Day party, we went traditional with all green décor accented with gold, white and black. Decorate your party with hanging shamrock lanterns, paper fans, centerpieces and pendant banners. Our favorite details are the gold coin jars and beads. Inexpensive and festive, beads are fun to drape around the bar and tableware. Serve your green beer in our set of flight glasses or personalize beer mugs for all your friends!
Bucket o’ Gold Balloon Display
We wanted to add a splash of rainbow color to the décor. This epic, arc-shaped balloon garland is an eye-catching décor piece. Using our simple balloon garland tutorial, frame your bar or kitchen table with balloons of every shade of the rainbow, or create a magical entrance by framing the doorway. Situate the rainbow balloon garland so that one side is starting from a pot of gold.
Here’s how to make an adorable balloon pot-o-gold:
- First, blow up and cluster four regular black balloons as the base of the pot. Then add a giant black balloon on top, as the main part of the pot.
- Next, simply create the ridge of the pot by attaching a long black balloon in a circular shape.
- Finally, add metallic 5-inch gold balloons to the top! Try using double-sided tape or hot glue to attach more "gold coin" balloon to create a fuller, spilling look!
How cute is the finished product?!
For more simple balloon décor, we also added a balloon display to the bar. Choose your favorite St. Patrick’s Day color scheme (we love the metallic green with white and gold) and add your balloons to the front of the bar mixing colors and sizes. If decorating the bar isn’t your style, try adding any combination of these fun balloons to fill space on an empty wall, at the base of a fireplace, or up the banister of a staircase. Balloons are a party essential - and such an easy and inexpensive way to style your party!
Pinch Me Photo Booth
Everyone loves a photo booth! We created this fun photo op from a DIY Photo Booth Backdrop Board. We started by simply wrapping green and gold metallic fringe around the board. Then, for an extra pop, we placed a rainbow balloon garland on the floor to help frame the photo booth area. Add your favorite St. Patrick’s Day phrase with golden letter balloons for the final touch! Pose for photos in any of our fun and festive, pinch-proof wearables – like these rainbow headbands, top hats, suspenders and beads.
Standees also make fun, on-theme photo props – guests will love to pose next to a giant leprechaun and pot of gold. We love the 3-ft. lighted shamrock standee. It comes with string lights for easy set up. Now, it’s time to party!
