Kiss Me! I’m Irish: St. Patrick’s Day Fun
St. Patrick’s day is next month on Tuesday March, 17th. So break out all things green and Irish. Why not host your own St. Patrick’s Day Party? There are ways you can get into the spirit at home and host your own celebration instead of going out and dealing with crowds.
Tasty festive treats:
Lucky Leprechaun Bark brings together some of my favorite things – chocolate, pretzels, oreos and m&m’s. The recipe is straightforward and easy to follow for beginning bakers and your more advanced ones. You can make this crunchy chocolate snack for the office, classroom or give them to guests when they come over. If that isn’t doing it for you, try this recipe for ice cream jello or shamrock mint oreos. These sweet snacks are all great additions to any St. Patricks Day Party.
Drinks for the 21+ Crowd:
These fun drinks can be enjoyed by anyone age 21 and older in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish Hammer is a shot that mixes Jack Daniels, Irish Mist and Bailey’s Irish Liqueur. It’s sweet, creamy and can be sipped if you don’t enjoy throwing shots back. Irish Cola mixes Bailey’s Irish Liqueur, Irish Whiskey and Cola to deliver a festive drink. If you’re looking for something crisp and refreshing, go for a Shamrock Shake Up which mixes Absolut Miami, simple syrup, lime juice and soda.
Drinks for Any Party Guest:
St. Patrick’s Day Punch will be loved by kids and adults. All it takes is sherbert, pineapple juice and ginger ale to get this chilled beverage you’ll want to drink all night. If you are looking for healthier options, you can try any of these great festive smoothies.
Nothing says “St. Patrick’s Day” like shamrocks. So why not hang up cute shamrock bunting you can make yourself? You can also print your own bunting, stickers and signs from home thanks to The Graphics Fairy. If you aren’t a total DIY fan, you can always pick up decorations from stores like Target that sell green lights, shamrock garland and fun clothing items like headbands with top hats and buttons.
All of these suggestions are great, easy ways for you to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in your own home. Don’t be afraid to try these simple recipes and throw your own Irish get together. So put on your favorite green clothes and get celebrating!
