Everybody's Irish on St. Paddy's Day, a great reason to party it up with family and good friends!
Find an Irish pub in your neighborhood, or stay at home to celebrate with traditional green food, green beer and other drink recipes (may we suggest a Nutty Irishman?) along with traditional Irish recipes to celebrate the day!
If you're lucky enough to spend it with an Irish crowd (who have no doubt inherited the gene for Irish song and merriment) you're in for an extra treat.
If sending out formal inviations create homemade invitations using St. Patrick's Day clipartwith wording such as "Love and luck are on the way ....please join us for St. Paddy's Day!" Be sure to include where, when, and RSVP details.
Decorations are as easy as green balloons and streamers. Green carnations from your local florist can also serve as a fun and simple table centerpiece.
And what's the party without the games and activities? Center the party around a movie night (complete with green popcorn) as you load up the DVD with top Irish movies for St. Patrick's Day. Keep kids busy with a fun game of 'Pin the Shamrock on the Leprechaun"-- or a traditional bean bag toss in keeping with the theme: "Pass the Irish Hot Potato'.
