St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Mara Beasley
Small but fun. Should you have your eyes on a slightly smaller and less rowdy celebration of all that is Irish a dinner party among couples or a few friends will work well. If you are not skilled in the culinary arts like me call a caterer or local restaurant for plenty of corned beef potatoes rolls and greens. If a touch of class is desired opt for green champagne or wine instead of the beer. The Irish folk music is still a great idea as are the hats and party favors. For a smaller party consider slightly more romantic Irish tunes blended into the mix. Intimate and romantic.
But there is no reason to just stick to green. Look for different shades of green and throw some silver in there also. Pairing multiple shades of green together with even green shoes and accessories such as jewelry and hats is a fun way to get ready for St. Patrick s Day. If your girl find green tights to go with a green skirt and shirt add a vest as well and pointy shoes to be a leprechaun. There are great top hats in green with shamrocks on them or headbands with shamrocks on springs too. Guys can dress as leprechauns also using a vest green pants adding gold coins and chains. Such as a pocket watch or making a pot of gold to carry.
Hosting a dinner or party for any age group will be more politically correct when attention is given to actual cultural images. Celtic historical crafts and Gaelic lettered items as well as Celtic music will lend more accuracy. Folk dance or DVD s of popular dance could be offered for entertainment. More sophisticated guests might enjoy readings from the poetry of Ireland which is rich and varied. Most of us will descend into the habit of bad Irish accents and excessive imbibing. It is the American way. Don t drink and drive. What Is Saint Patricks Day? Saint Patrick is a patron saint of Ireland.
