May the luck of the Irish be with you! Whether you are Irish or not, this weekend is going to be all about the Irish, as we set out to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  Did you realize that while it is a widely celebrated day in the U.S. it is not a National holiday?  You see we really don’t need a holiday to create a celebration here in the US, now do we?

If you’re planning to get together with friends and family to throw down a few green beers and Irish whiskey’s, here are some ideas for you to make a extraordinary occasion out of it. For starters, we love this welcome sign from A Blissful Nest. So cute and spot on!

Decorations can be as easy as mixing greens and white as your foundation. Add some flowers and shamrocks and you’re good to go.  I especially like the ribbons added to this very clean and bright tablescape!

Let’s talk about the menu.  Do you want to serve a hearty Irish meal? We have found the menu suggestions and recipes offered by Closet Cooking mouth watering.  If you are a Guinness beer lover (Hmmm! one person comes to mind!), you will enjoy serving up this menu!

If you want to make less of a fuss over the food and focus more on the cocktails, the light party fare featured by Catch My Party is the best idea we have seen.  Be sure to look at this site for additional ideas. We love the idea of displaying all the goodies on this writing desk!

There are several clever drink recipes that are made with Irish cream, Irish whiskey and Guinness, however, I have never thought of TY KU sake.  Give them a try and let us know what you think!

We encourage you to consider party favors early on in your planning.  There are so many fun and memorable options available when you start early!

We hope you take away some fun ideas to help make your St. Patrick’s Day celebration uniquely your own.
