St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, the death date of the patron saint of Ireland. The celebration of St. Patrick’s Day is observed culturally with people wearing green attire and joining public parades and festivals. St. Patrick’s Day parades include marching bands, fire brigades, military members, and more. Many landmarks are lit green on this day.
St. Patrick’s Day often falls within the Lent season. In deference to the celebration, the Lenten restrictions on alcohol are temporarily lifted. Many people would agree that St. Patrick’s Day is not complete without a few drinks.
The holiday is often celebrated in a pub or bar, but have you ever thought about hosting your own pub party at home? If you have a garden shed, it can make the perfect venue for enjoying the approach of spring and honoring St. Patrick in the company of good friends.
The pub shed is another iteration of the ordinary garden shed. While people used to just use sheds for storing tools and lawn equipment, many people are now using them as peaceful backyard hideaways or entertaining spaces.
Consider transforming your garden shed into a pub shed with the following steps:
- Clear your storage shed of all trash and debris.
- Give the shed a thorough floor-to-ceiling cleaning, including the exterior walls.
- Clean the area surrounding the shed, especially the walkway that leads to it. Pull weeds and give it a thorough sweeping.
- Give the exterior and interior of the shed a fresh coat of paint.
- Build a small bar for alcoholic drinks.
- Provide bar stools and other furniture to accommodate your guests.
- Decorate the shed with shamrocks, leprechauns, and plenty of green.
Sheds make for handy storage space, but if you keep them in good shape, they can also make a great extension of your home for hosting parties and get-togethers.
