Hello, Celebrations.com readers! My name is Reilly, and I am the Art Director of Red Leaf Papers. I am excited to bring you four lucky tips for having a fun St. Patrick’s Day Party! Sláinte!
Tip #1: Always start your celebration with the perfect invitations. As the invitation experts, we at Invitation Consultants know that green is the only way to go for St. Patty’s Day! Think shamrocks, leprechaun motifs, overflowing steins of green beer and pots of gold! Shop for St. Patrick’s Day invitations in mid-February to ensure your guests receive them in time to prepare their green getups. If you have the luck of the Irish on your side, enter to win 25 St. Patrick’s Day Invitations from Red Leaf Papers below!
Tip #2: Gather ideas for green treats, from emerald colored cupcakes to cookies covered with charming clover sprinkles. I love these little shamrock cake truffles featured on Bakerella. Bonus: they seem easy to make, so it will leave you more time to hunt for leprechaun treasure.
Tip #3: For the décor, consider homemade shamrock garlands. Cut green construction paper into the shape of shamrocks, punch holes on either side and string together with gold twine. If you would like to make your event green chic, there are some pretty green arrangements offered by florists this time of year, including the beautiful emerald arrangement featured above from 1 800 Flowers.
Tip #4: Add a little green food coloring to your favorite clear cocktails, and you’ll be sure to bring miles of Irish smiles. Top with a shamrock garnish, and you will feel as though you are celebrating merrily in Dublin! Luck o’ the Irish to you this St. Patrick’s Day!
Alright, folks. Get to commenting! Leave a comment with the best party you ever invited people to and you could get 25 invites and envelopes!
