St. Patrick's Day Party Ideas

It’s almost that time of year again, to think green! Throw an Irish-themed party and wear some green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!  Here are some great ideas on how to throw the perfect St. Patrick’s Day Party:

Attire:  Make sure you wear green or you might get pinched!  You can even sport a “Pinch me I’m Irish” button or step it up by wearing a leprechaun hat.

Decorations: Include as many green decorations as possible by incorporating green into tablecloths, tableware, silverware, balloons, and streamers.  You can even replace light fixtures with green light bulbs or hang shamrock-shaped strands of lights.

Activities: Create a treasure hunt for guests to find a hidden pot of gold (chocolate gold coins). You can also create a playlist of Irish songs and have guests sing karaoke.  For 21 and older, go to an Irish Pub and celebrate in the most popular way, by drinking a beer!

Food:  For finger foods, place bowls of green M&Ms, green jelly beans, and Lucky Charms cereal.  You should also serve popular Irish foods such as corned beef and cabbage and mashed potatoes.

Drink: Serve mint milkshakes, green Gatorade, or green Kool-Aid.  For 21 and older, serve Irish coffee by adding whisky to coffee or serve green beer by adding green food coloring.
