Whether you're inviting friends and family over for a casual get-together or throwing a more formal event, there are many ways to make your St. Patrick's Day party a memorable one.
Consider what type of food and drink you want to serve at your party. Traditional Irish dishes like corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew or soda bread are always popular, as are Irish beers and whiskey. You could also serve more Irish-inspired party foods like chips and dips, sandwiches and snacks with a Celtic flare. Don't forget to have plenty of non-alcoholic options available as well, like soda, water and tea.
Make sure to plan your party well in advance and send invitations to your guests. This will give people plenty of time to clear their schedules and make any necessary arrangements. You should also decide on a theme for your party, whether that’s something traditionally Celtic or lighthearted with oversized shamrocks, have fun and enjoy your Irish experience. Sláinte!
