St. Patrick's Day Party Ideas


To me, St. Patrick’s Day is a “sleeper” holiday. It’s one that typically doesn’t get as much attention from the planning standpoint, but one that inevitably ends up being tons of fun! This year, we decided to get a head start on the favorite Irish bash by creating a fun, classic printable collection that is simple to coordinate linens and serve ware with. Plaid is just about as classic as it gets. And it gives this dessert table a preppy feel that was fun to run and play with. The menu included the following:


* Lime green individual jello-‘s in footed, glass dessert dishes complete with a bow-tie and a printable charm (no pinch!)
* Extra large chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with printable cupcake wrappers
* “Appletini” Shots, a.k.a “Liquid Gold” with printable drink flags (recipe below)
* Chocolate-chip cookies
* Beer, a.k.a “Lucky Charm” with printable bottle labels
For decor, the backdrop was created out of alternating strips of burlap and green & white floral fabric. The table was an old, large antique trunk I found at an estate sale (which just so happens to be the coffee table in my living room.) Other decor included a large wrought iron vase filled with neutral-colored hydrangeas, green beads and a glittered top hat, as well as a gold geometric-patterned decorative plate on an easel. The cupcakes, shots and cookies were served on tiered dessert stands from Crate & Barrel.
“Appletini” Shots
* 2 oz Michael Collins Irish Whiskey
* 1 oz Sour Apple Schapps
* 2 oz White Cranberry Juice
* Add all three ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass and or partition into shot glasses for a miniature version.
