Chic St. Patrick's Day Decor That Isn't All Shamrocks & Leprechauns

St. Patrick's Day is one of our favorite holidays of the year. Halfway between winter and spring, it's a reminder that warm weather is in fact on its way. It's also a fun way to break up the boring stretch between New Year's and the summer holidays, a welcome excuse to throw a celebration.

But most of the St. Patrick's Day decor you find in stores is a little too kitschy. I mean, I love mischievous little leprechauns and bright-green shamrocks as much as the next gal, but it's nice to opt for decor that you can use more than one day out of the year.

In this roundup, we opted for lovely home decor items in shades of green, gold and rainbow. They're still in the spirit of the holiday, but you'll get a lot more use out of them than you would a novelty decoration.

Whether you're throwing a huge rager or whipping up some colcannon for a cozy feast by the fire, these St. Patrick's Day home decor items will liven up your home.
