St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most anticipated events of spring, isn’t it? There is nothing like a St. Patrick’s Day bash to celebrate with those closest to you. It gives you an opportunity to sit down with your friends and family to share a good laugh.
So, if you are throwing a St. Patrick’s Day party and want to spice things up with some fun ideas, your quest ends here. We have listed the 7 tips to throwing a St. Patrick’s Day party that will help you throw the best spring bash in town!
1. Make a Guest List
As is the case with all parties, you need to start off with a guest list. You will have to review the list two to three times to make sure you do not leave anyone off. In order to avoid forgetting anyone, you can cross-check with your close friends or siblings.
2. Send Out Fun Invitations
Once you make the guest list, you have to send invitations to your guests. You could leave a simple text message or call your guests, but why not make things more fun? You should create a fun poster invite for your St. Patrick’s Day bash. A good ol’ Irish joke or one-liner on the poster makes your guests look up to the party. It also helps them see why your party is the one they cannot miss!
3. Get the Right Decorations
Now comes the tricky part. You have to be careful about the decorations if you want to have a great party. To make things easy, there is only one rule you need to follow—think all things green and fun!
Put up an amusing banner to greet your guests. Green balloons and shamrock lines are also a great way of setting the right mood for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Glittery ribbons and swirls are also a must-have for this festivity as they set a lively aura.
4. Be a Leprechaun
When all the decorations are done, why not turn yourself into a leprechaun? You just have to get something green and cool to be the cutest leprechaun at the party. Getting matching leprechaun shirts for your friends is a great idea, too. You can even look for a women’s St. Patrick’s Day shirt for any ladies attending the party. Pair that up with a fun green hat or beaded necklaces to make your outfit even better.
5. Pay Attention to Treats
Food is the most important part of festivities. You need to think of some fun ways to make the food look as good as it tastes. Get St. Patrick’s Day-themed cups and plates to bring that extra detail to your party preparations.
You can bake some cute green cupcakes to make the dessert table worthy of a leprechauns’ feast. If you have some time to spare, you can decorate some cookies with fun characters and patterns. All in all, going the extra mile in terms of food preparation will help you have an amazing party.
6. Play Popular Irish Music
You cannot overlook music when it comes to having a fun St. Patrick’s Day bash. Playing some cool Irish songs and ballads like “Bully in the Alley” and “The Saints are Up!” will be appreciated by everyone.
7. Set Up a Pot of Gold
You can also set up a Pot of Gold using a cauldron and gold chocolate coins. This will make the guests feel lucky, and they will love the small details and gestures on your part. You can even have small bowls of gold coin chocolates as treats for winning the games and activities you and your friends will be playing.
Keep all of these things in mind and throw the best St. Patrick’s Day-themed party. Your guests will love all the efforts that you will put into it, so it’s all going to be worth it!
