As we all know the day when people all over the world celebrate the fact that Irish people are the best as an excuse to get very drunk, tell some stories and have a dance, is fast approaching. I always seem to end up working or involved in something that prevents me from celebrating and this year is no different but if, unlike me, you are more prepared and have booked the day off then here are a few more ideas on how you can make it even more fun!
Well, first of all, you have to be looking your best for the parade! Sure the whole town will be out! This awesome clover crown from one of my favourite sites Oh Happy Day will make sure you're looking your best as well as sticking with the theme.
Once you've got your look sorted then you'll need to focus on your luck! You'll need a lot to get you through this marathon of a day so why not make these bags of gold created by Patti from Celebrations? They are super cute and include chocolate so I don't see what's not to love.
Now that we've got those out of the way, on to the important stuff - the drink. These edible cups from Lovely Indeed mean that, not only are you getting a taste of the Irish fuel but, by eating them, they're also providing the necessary soakage so that you can carry on drinking. A full proof plan.
And you can make your drink even more festive by making these Shamrock Straw toppers; another awesome project from Martha Stewart.
And if you're stuck no what you should drink, try out some of these cocktails - all Irish themed, obviously. Cocktail making is craft to learn all in itself so you'd be killing two birds with one stone.
And when you've had enough to drink and start seeing tiny men then this leprechaun trap from Lia Griffith will be just what you need so set it up before you go out!
If none of these ideas tickle your fancy then head over to the Tiddlybob's Pinterest board where there are lots more.
Happy St. Patricks Day!!
