It’s March, which means we get to talk about St. Patrick’s Day!
I’ve done lots of St. Patrick’s Day decorating and DIYs in the past, so we’re not going too crazy around here this year, but be sure to check out the St. Patrick’s Day archives if you’re looking for more holiday ideas!
Today’s all about the most casual St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece ever. It’s the perfect mix of festiveness and getting the table set in 10 minutes top.
Exactly the kind of little decorating projects I’m looking for these days!

This table is perfectly set for a delicious night of Ruebens and cold beer!
I’ve grabbed a lot of St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece items from the Target Dollar Spot over the years, and I’ve seen similar pieces there this year so definitely check there if you’re looking for anything!
Otherwise, online ordering to the rescue as always. I linked everything (or similar pieces if I couldn’t find the exact piece) I used in this centerpiece at the end of this post if you’re looking for anything.
How to put together a St. Patrick’s Day centerpiece:
This really did take about 10 minutes to set up.
- Put down a festive table runner. If you don’t have a St. Patrick’s Day runner, anything green or white works! (We have this non-seasonal green + white runner that I love!)
- Add a cute festive leprechaun hat as the main centerpiece.
- Add a couple of wood shamrocks on either side fill out the table.
- Sprinkle some gold coins around.
- Green paper plates, of course. Enjoy your delicious Ruebens without worrying about cleanup! (Or if you’re looking for something a bit more dressed up, use real plates, ha!)
- Festive beer glasses – or regular beer glasses work, too! We’re just big St. Patrick’s Day fans and have some festive glasses in our stash.
- Festive napkins – or just solid green ones work, too if you don’t want to stock up on too many St. Patrick’s Day pieces.
- A fun silverware jar – I DIYed this one from from a spaghetti sauce jar.
Then serve up some Ruebens and beer, and you’re all set! Writing this post is making me hungry.
And can we talk about how hard it is to get a full room shot of this dining room since the breakfast bar is right across from it?!
