Style Your Books for St. Paddy’s

March means rainbows and shamrocks at Arthurized Home and while we don’t go all out with an Irish theme, we add a few touches here and there. Here are some ways to bring the St. Paddy’s love with your books.

Rainbows: Gather up books with attractive spines and arrange them in rainbow order. The subjects don’t matter, you’re just looking for bright, eye-catching color.

Neutral with a touch of green: Maybe bright colors are not your thing. Grab a stack of books with a neutral look, stack them and add a nod to the holiday. I found these tea cups years ago at a thrift shop. If you don’t have something similar, you could use a green tea cup or a small, potted shamrock. Shamrocks (oxalis) are cheap as chips in the grocery stores right now. Maybe tie a pale green ribbon around the books, or place a small bowl of gold foil-wrapped chocolates on top?

All green: This couldn’t be more simple. Stack books with green spines in an ombre gradient. Add a decorative item on top. Try a small gold candle, an air plant or a bowl of brightly colored candies.

This decor idea can be used with any holiday, red and green books at Christmas, Fall colors for September through November, etc. Have fun playing with it!
