Create St Patricks day decorations that will make your guests feel just a wee bit Irish and want to shout "Erin Go Bragh"! (Erin Go Bragh or Erin Go Braugh, is an Irish phrase meaning "Ireland Forever".) From 4 leaf clovers to leprechauns, to pots o' gold, decorating with a bit of the green starts here!
Do something fun and unexpected with your food. There are lots of cute plates and serving platters available, but why not "toss in the hat" and do something different? Use a green "leprechaun" hat to serve chips, or other snacks. Simply turn it upside down & fill. Or, you could use it as a centerpiece for your table, with or without flowers.
Another centerpiece idea is to cut shamrocks out of green construction paper, attach to floral wire, and insert into a bud vase. Add a few flowers, such as carnations, and you'll have a cute, yet inexpensive centerpiece.
party atmosphere hang green or gold crepe paper streamers with balloons above the food table . Paper lanterns hanging above table look really
cool, too. Mix lanterns with paper
tissue flowers for an even more interesting effect. So pretty!
Don't forget about beverages! What would an Irish party be without clinking glasses of green beer, or other icy cold drinks? Pour green dyed beer into frosty mugs, or use cute Mason type jars with handles, for that frothy Guinness. For non-alcoholic drinks, add cute lids with green straws. Use green paint markers, or Sharpie pens to draw 4 leaf clovers on the mugs for a festive look.
A cute decoration for straws is to cut out 4 leaf clovers from stiff green paper, punch a hole in center with a hole puncher, & insert straw through the hole. Not only do the shamrocks look cute, but they can also serve as drink markers, by writing guest's name on each one, to identify their drink.
