A Mean Green St. Patrick’s Day Party
When it comes to big holidays, nothing commemorates them better than a great party. This is even true for the lesser-celebrated days, like St. Patrick’s Day. While St. Patty’s Day might not be on the top of everyone’s party planning list, it should be, especially after reading the following advice on how to throw an out of this world, mean and green party.
1. Go All Out
Sometimes, a party starts out as this grand idea, but then the people planning it get a little intimidated with all the details, and the party turns out pretty boring. The key to avoiding this tragedy is to go wild. Buy a keg or two of beer for the adults and some root beer floats for the kids. Hire a midget to dress up as a leprechaun and hand out little chocolate golden coins. Make a giant pool of green Jell-O that guests have to search through to find a prize. Whatever it is, just go all out, have a blast with it and the guests will have the time of their lives, guaranteed.
2. Don’t Forget the Details
The best parties are centered on details. Making rice crispy treats made with Lucky Charms cereal is a great twist on a tasty classic. Try dying all of the water green and eating only foods that are traditionally Irish. Also, don’t forget about the St. Paddy’s Day invitations. These are essential to any good party and can be a fun way to get the kids involved by having them make or design the invites themselves.
3. Have Fun and Don’t Stress
Many party planners tend to get overwhelmed with trying to be the “hostess with the mostest,” in a sense. The trick to having a fun St. Patrick’s Day party is keeping it stress free and having a good time. No one wants to deal with a worked up or emotional host. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun along with everyone else, and the party is a guaranteed success.
