St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday that can be a great opportunity to host a party at home and catch up with family and friends.
Rainbows, pots of gold, leprechauns, and four-leaf clovers are all cornerstones of American St. Patrick’s Day decorations. If you don’t have anything yet, there is still plenty of time to go shopping or order things online. As far as decorations go, there are a lot of cheap options online that you can check out, especially on Amazon. If DIY is more your style, Pinterest always offers some great St. Patrick’s Day inspiration. If you have kids, having them take part in making the DIY decorations can help get them in the spirit!
Food and drinks are two of the most important things at every party. St. Patrick’s Day food can range from just green tinted to an American twist on traditional Irish fare. Good Housekeeping compiled a list of some of the best St. Patrick’s Day recipes like soda bread, colcannon or corned beef with cabbage and potatoes! Guinness is obviously the holiday’s beer staple, but there are a ton of other green alcoholic options for those who aren’t beer fans. If beer will be the focal point of your celebration, try matching your beers with food according to taste!
If you’re hosting a party for adults and kids, it’s important to have some good entertainment and games for all ages. You can never go wrong with some Irish trivia, karaoke, or an Irish movie night! Younger kids will always have fun with some St. Patrick’s Day crafts or these simple games from the Spruce!
Remember, if you are serving any alcoholic beverages at your party, provide all of your guests with easy access to a taxi service, Uber, or Lyft! Post your address and necessary taxi contact details near your door. When someone’s ready to go home, they can do so safely!
