Feeling lucky?! It’s time to celebrate the Irish way!

This time of year is my favorite, always has been!  It’s when the smell of spring is in the air, the weather starts to warm up and of course….. St’ Patty’s Day celebrations are here! Now this celebration is extra special for me because my main squeeze’s birthday happens to fall in the month of March so it gives me every reason in the book to throw a St. Patty’s Day themed party (with or without his consent!)

Holidays are the best excuse to host an event and add a birthday to the mix and you are good as gold… get it? Gold? 🙂

Here are some fun ideas for a festive St. Patty’s Day Shindig!

Now if you have read any of my blog posts or know me personally you know that decor is my main priority and is the first thing on my checklist!  Once you have that down the rest of the party details fall into place.

Here are some fun ideas from some of my favorite Etsy shops!

Luck of the Irish banner – an essential for decorating any mantle and also easy to hang on the wall! Found at the fun and festive shop One Tiny Heart

The Second most important detail is of course food and drinks! I know I know, it is the staple of the party but hey, a girl has her priorities!

Have fun with the food! Finger foods and small desserts are always a hit  so try some of these out!  They will definitely get your guests in the spirit of the Irish!

Fruit and chocolate platter – so easy and such a nice touch!

Now my favorite touch to any party is showing my guests my appreciation and the best way to do that is….. favors!

I personally like to have fun wearable favors throughout the party and when the guests leave something useful they can take home as a momento!

Here are some great finds!

These fun props help create great memories for your guests!

These ones can be found at the shop Pure Simple Things
