10 Charming St. Patrick's Day Party Ideas

Get creative this St. Patrick's Day and host a party full of shamrocks, rainbows and leprechauns! 

There are so many festive ideas you can incorporate into a St. Patrick's Day theme party, such as rainbow cake pops, fun printables, green juice or cocktails, and lucky party favors. Check out some of the most charming St. Patrick's Day party ideas we found on the Web this week!


  • We love the set up of these green speckled cake pops from Creative Juice's St. Patrick's Day party. Instead of using an ordinary cake pop holder, try sticking them in jars with colored candy for a rainbow effect!

  • You don't always have to go crazy with favor bags. This themed treat from Sandy Toes & Popsicles is the perfect take home gift for kids. The printable topper puts a homemade touch on the sandwich bags and of course kids will love the Lucky Charm cereal!

  • If you are hosting a sit down party for the kids, set up this cute rainbow table setting like Lisa Storms. We love the personalized plates with each child's name and the homemade leprechaun footprints!

  • Adults at your party will appreciate a boozy cupcake, especially this Irish Car Bomb Cupcake from Brown Eyed Baker. No one can resist a cupcake filled with Whiskey Ganache and topped with Baileys Frosting.

  • Over on Living Locurto, Rebekah from A Blissful Nest featured her St. Patrick's Day Printable Collection. You can easily download fun cupcake and treat bag toppers to add some more green and gold to your party.

  • The folks over at Miss. Canquik creating this completely edible pot o' gold cake bites. These would make for a yummy dessert and even fun edible accents on a St. Patrick's Day buffet table.

  • A great way to spruce up a table without spending a lot is to fill jars like these with colorful gumballs. Sheek Shindigs made paper rainbows and attached them to the jars for extra flair.

  • If breakfast is more your thing, try out this St. Patrick's Day brunch idea from My Sister's Suitcase. Whip up some green pancakes and let your guest top them with magic clover dust (powdered sugar) or lucky leprechaun teeth (white chocolate chips)!

  • No party guest can resist these disco dust cake pops from The Party Dress. Dipped in green chocolate and topped with a rainbow cake pop printable, they make a cute party favor or quick dessert.

  • Adult guests will probably be looking for a fun cocktail. Oh My! Creative mixed up this Green Apple Martini with a rainbow rim for a charming St. Patrick's Day touch. She also created a shamrock candy garnish out of candy melts.
