[ 0 ] February 5, 2015 |


It’s that time of year again! The air is still crisp with the last remnants of winter. The frenzy of the holidays is behind us and Cupid has retreated back into whatever heart-shaped abyss he came from. St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and this day is all about having a good time! We’ve tracked down some of the best tips for planning a St. Paddy’s blowout. So whether you’re Irish by blood or Irish at heart, these tips will make your bash one to remember!

1.  Go Green!

No, not ecofriendly, vegetable oil in your car type of green. We’re talking about all green errthang! From the invitations, to the beer, the key is in the details. For added security, incorporate green wristbands to identify underage partygoers. You don’t want those problems.

2. Kiss the Blarney Stone!


Give your guests the gift of gab. Legend has it, kissing the Blarney Stone will give the kisser the power of persuasion and eloquence. We don’t know if that’s true but it will certainly start a few interesting conversations. Just remind your guests that it’s supposed to be a quick peck, you don’t want things to get weird. Or do you?

3.  Add Irish-speak to Your Vernacular for the Night


A wee-bit of creativity goes a long way! Charm your shamrockers with some language o’ the old country. Add some flair by talking in an Irish accent. We find the accents get better after a couple drinks.

4.  Authentic Irish Entertainment

Want to really get in the spirit of the holiday? Check your local listings for Celtic bands, bagpipers, or Irish step dancers. It’s a little over the top but every good event planner knows nothing exceeds like excess!

5.  Irish Food Favorites


Get you guests in a feeding frenzy with authentic Irish cuisine and Irish-themed food. Keep it light with finger foods or indulge in decadent desserts like Irish coffee cupcakes or a stout and ice cream float (yum!).
