It is time to get your green on! March 17 is just around the corner, and whether you are hosting a St. Patrick's Day party, or simply wanting to show your colors, we have some great, and easy, ideas for you.
But first, before we do, let's wet our whistle with a video provided last year by longtime AtmosFAN Lee Weber. With green-and-white holiday lights, and both window and wall projections using AtmosFX's Happy St. Patrick's Day Digital Decoration, this just might be the gold standard that exists at the end of the rainbow.
We think St. Patty's Day deserves this wonderfully over-the-top treatment. But even if you prefer something slightly less labor-intensive, you can still wow your neighbors or party-guests with a just a few minutes of preparation.
Window Displays: For those familiar digital decorating, this is the most common way to decorate – simply place Window Projection Material in your window and project onto it from the inside. It's a great way to show your St. Patty's Day Spirit. And if you are hosting a party? Your guests will never wonder where the party is at!
Wall Displays: Depending on the weather, you can project on any wall or ceiling, inside or out. Lee's video shows how effective a large-scale wall display on his garage door can be. (Another way to ensure your guests find your party!) Don't forget that wall displays are also a great way to liven up a party on the inside, too. For instance, projecting Happy St. Patrick's Day on the wall above the hors d'oeuvre table looks great!
TV or Monitor Displays: Perhaps the simplest way to decorate for a party is by simply playing Happy St. Patrick's Day Digital Decoration on your TV. It certainly helps create a festive mood! And who'd be watching the TV, anyway?
Scary Displays: We wouldn’t be AtmosFX if we didn’t suggest a way to horrify your holiday. The ghastly green version of Terrors From Beyond, or the green Wicked Wraith or the banshee-like Seductive Siren individual decorations from Phantasms can add a surprising twist to your St. Patrick’s Day Party. (If this appeals to you, click here to see Gourdy’s list of scary ways to celebrate March 17!)
Guinness Displays: This projection mode is still in the testing phase, but we think it holds great promise. What happens when we project the Happy St. Patrick's Day Digital Decoration onto a pint of Guinness? We've been doing some testing in the AtmosFX Developmental Dungeon, and have encountered one key problem: We can't keep our glasses full!
Perhaps some of our clever fans will be able to find a solution. And if you do, make sure to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Until then, in the spirit of St. Patty's Day, we'll keep testing. Sláinte!
