It's time to celebrate because it's almost St. Patrick's Day! From the decor to the food, this is your guide to throwing the ultimate bash! Feel the luck of the Irish with these fun ideas...
On St. Patrick's Day, it’s all about the color green! So, incorporating it into your decor is a must. You can add touches of green simply with balloons or colored plates and cups. You can also make beautiful green centerpieces with carnations or even create a pot of gold with chocolate coins. (Yes, you can eat them too!) For some extra festive flare, add some leprechaun hats and green necklace beads on the table to help guests get into the Irish spirit!
Feel inspired by Ireland's symbol, the Shamrock. Here's a creative idea: create St. Patrick's Day shamrock table name cards! Simply cut out shamrock shaped pieces of paper, outline them with green glitter and write your guests names on them. Next, using a durable green construction paper, you can also make shamrock coasters for your guests to place their drinks on.
