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'.

DRESS FOR THE OCCASION

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.
