We love holidays at, and we especially love holidays that give our customers (and us) a great reason to have a party! St. Patrick's Day is especially fun because of all the great opportunities to make your party spirited and entertaining. St. Patrick's Day is a great reason to celebrate because the atmosphere is so festive! Take the spirit of St. Patrick's Day to your group of friends with your own St. Patrick's Day party. Read on for some ideas to get you started...

There are so many things you can do with invitations for your St. Patrick's Day party. offers a wide variety of St. Patrick's Day themed invitations, to set the mood of the party for your guests. Using shamrocks and plenty of green is a great way to invite your guests to your party. Consider encouraging your guests to wear green, and if you do this, be sure to let them know on the invitation to dress accordingly.

Decor is another aspect of your party that can add so much. You may want to consider using a green tablecloth and setting up centerpieces on each table. The centerpieces do not need to be anything elaborate. I would recommend using pots of shamrocks or using gold-foil covered chocolates to create your own "pot of gold." Another fun idea is giving your guests "Kiss me, I'm Irish" buttons as they walk in the door, or leave them as favors.

Using music to create the mood is another great way to make your party authentic. Traditional Irish music is available on CD and will complete the atmosphere of your St. Patrick's Day Party. Having Irish music playing when your guests arrive and throughout the party is a perfect way to welcome your guests to your party. Lastly, offers a selection of napkins, which can be printed with a shamrock design and wording of your choice. Though the napkin may seem as if it may go unnoticed, these small details can add a lot to your party.

What you serve at your party will also add to the authenticity of your Irish soiree. I found some great ideas on the Food Network's website ( Regardless of whether you are serving hors d'oeuvres or a dinner, don't hesitate to make your meal Irish! Some of my favorites are Sheppard's Pie, Corned Beef and Cabbage, and Roscommon Rhubarb Pie. Traditional Irish treats will hit the spot while celebrating St. Patrick's Day.
