Or, keep it simple with a St. Patrick's Day Beer Fest -- accompanied by plenty of finger foods, pretzels and popcorn to feed the hungry hoards!
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.
Everybody's Irish on St. Paddy's Day so it's always a great reason to party it up with good friends and family.
Getting ready for your St. Patrick's Day party
If sending out formal inviations create homemade creations using St. Patrick's Day clipartwith wording such as "Eat, drink, and be Irish! or "Love and luck are on the way ....please join us for St. Paddy's Day!".
A St. Patrick's Day party means green beer, Irish music, and lots of fun and laughter.
Be sure to include where, when, and RSVP details, along with dress or costume code: After all, St. Patrick's Day is the time for wearin' of the GREEN.
Decorations are as easy as green balloons, shamrocks, and streamers. Also check out green carnations and potted shamrocks from your local florist to create a fun and elegant table centerpiece.
St. Patrick's Day party fun & acdtivities
And what's the party without the games and activities? Center the party around a movie night (complete with green popcorn) as you stream the top Irish movies for St. Patrick's Day.
Keep kids busy with a fun game of 'Pin the Shamrock on the Leprechaun".
Face painting is also a real crowd pleaser for kids of all ages, so have a brush and non-toxic paints ready to decorate faces with Irish flags and green shamrocks.
