A very Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you! We understand that having this holiday on a Monday isn’t ideal, but hopefully you were able to celebrate over the weekend. These 2 Irish chicks were able to have some fun celebrating on Saturday AND Sunday. Here are some pics from our St. Patty’s Day outings…
Today we’re doing a little round-up of our St. Patrick’s Day projects, so check ’em out and get inspired to tackle some of these for next year…
As of tomorrow it’s official, this Irish lady is giving up her Irish last name, but let’s be real here- she’s not giving up her Irish roots. It’ll take a lot more than a wedding and a new last name to shake the Irish out of this chick.
To remind my groom-to-be how lucky he is to have this Irish bride, it only seemed fitting to add a little pop of green to our holiday decor this season. This darling Irish tree will be standing tall all the way through St. Patrick’s Day (yup, you read that right Matthew… she’s not going anywhere anytime soon).
I have collected these Irish ornaments over the years from all of the wonderful Irish women in my life and can’t wait to add to my collection in the future.
My gram gave me this St. Bridget’s ornament this year, and I am obsessed with the new addition! Maybe I can hunt down a St. Matthew one for next year?
I still haven’t found the perfect Irish topper for this tree, so for now, a shamrock ribbon is just perfect.
These darling mini “books” are homemade treasures that my future mother-in-law had made for our pre-wedding celebration! They say “Bridget & Matthew” on the front with a Claddagh ring and makes the perfect “Irish gifts” for under our tree.
As I embark on a new journey with a not-so Irish last name this weekend, you can rest assured that this blondie will always be an Irish gal at heart, Irish last name o’ not.
Tune in to our Instagram to follow the wedding festivities (#ChestnutmeetsMayfield) and check back Monday morning to see the first peek into the wedding projects! Happy Weekend fellow rookies!!
Plain and Simple: I love wreaths but don’t always love the price tag that comes along with them. Even when you’re DIYing one…. they can be expensive. Not okay on a rookie salary, especially when you want to change them with the calendar. That’s when I decided to try and make a wreath using materials I found at a local dollar store (and only materials I found at this store). Hence, the Dollar Tree Challenge.
All supplies found at a local Dollar Store
Total Cost: $4 + Bow
Difficulty: Little League Skill Level
Additional Supplies needed: Hot Glue Gun
One stop shopping and $4 later…. how could you go wrong?! Thanks to the Dollar Tree for the “lucky” finds!

It’s your LUCKY day! If you didn’t catch my wood block tutorial over Valentine’s Day, here’s another chance to jump on board and create your own holiday blocks in honor of all things Irish! Click here for a tutorial on how to make these row o’ blocks just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
Remember what’s hiding behind the “IRISH”?
None other than our old friends- the blocks of “LOVE”. Love turned Irish… the perfect combination as far as I’m concerned.
