March 17 is the day you'll be wanting to dress in green and grab a pint of Guinness.

Need a few party ideas?

Here are a few things I've done over the past couple of years.  Some of the food is not quite Irish, but it's definitely 'green'.


St Patricks Day1

1. Potato and spinach soup – Irish fun, food & crafts

2. Irish Soda Bread – Sticky Fingers Bakery

3. Grapes, corned beef, crackers and guacamole

4. Assorted Irish Cheeses – Blarney Castle, Dubliner, Mature Cheddar

5. Reuben sandwiches – Kaboose recipes

6. Chicken wraps – add your favorite fillings

7. Vegetable chips, crackers and guacamole

8. Chips and salsa verde



St Patricks Day

1. Mini Bundt Cakes – Irish fun, food & crafts

2. Gold coins and Peppermint Lindt Balls

3. Shamrock cookies – Edelweiss Bakery

4. Individual ice cream tubs – peppermint and vanilla

5. Vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese icing and green sprinkles



St Patricks Day3

1. St. Patrick's Day punch – Kaboose recipes

2. Midori margarita

3. Jameson Irish Whiskey and Bailey's Irish Cream

4. Guiness

5. Harp Lager

6. Beer cozy – found at a party supply store.


St Patricks Day2

1. Placemats 4pk – purchased yesterday from Target on clearance for $2.48

2. Fresh flowers in yellow, green and white

3. Party music – Dreams: The Ultimate Corrs Collection



St Patricks Day4

When hosting a party at home I like to leave a table of assorted costume pieces for the guests to put on as they arrive. Nothing breaks the ice and gets a conversation started than looking a little silly.
