Easy St. Patrick's Day Recipes and Party Ideas

If you’re hosting a St. Patrick’s Day get together, then make sure you’ve got all the supplies and serving pieces to pull it off successfully.

Even the most inexperienced hostess can throw a great party. You just need the right tools. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite things that I use to help me enjoy the party instead of being stuck in the kitchen. Most of these items can be used over and over again or for more than one party. Smart right?

One | Shamrock Banner | This burlap shamrock banner adds just the right amount of fun to any Irish party. 

Two | Slainte Whiskey Glasses | When you want to toast St. Patrick’s Day in style, these glasses are just the thing. These double old fashioned glass with heavy weighted bottoms are ideal for Irish whiskey, scotch, bourbon, and other cocktails.

Three | Beverage Dispenser | I love this beverage dispenser so much that I bought two. It holds over 2 gallons and you can put ice in the base to keep your beverage cold. It’s a must for any party!

Four | Plain Table Runner | Classic buffalo plaid in green and white makes a festive table runner. It’s great for this March holiday but will surely make a showing during the summer and Christmas.

Five | Shenanigan Napkins | Fun cocktail napkins that bring a bit of the Irish to any gathering!

Six | Large Slow Cooker | If you’re serving up a big batch of chili, or pot of soup, this is the slow cooker for you! It’s extra-large, 10-quart capacity holds a ton of food. I love that it has a locking lid and a setting for warm which is great for buffets. 

Seven | Buffet Dinner Plates | This set of 20 dinner plates and 20 salad plates is indispensable when it comes times to feed a bunch of folks. There are times when I don’t want to use paper plates and I want everything to match. That’s where these plates come in. They are pretty plus easy to care for since they are dishwasher safe.

Eight | Shamrock Cookie Cutters | These shamrock cookie cutters come in 3 different shapes. They’re great for cutting cookie dough, bread, sandwiches, cheese, soft fruits, and pancakes so…get creative!

Nine | Green Beverage Glasses | Green cut glass drinking glasses are the perfect way to dress up any table. They’re great for water, iced tea or wine. They’re not just for St. Patrick’s Day since they’re pretty enough to use year-round.

Ten | Clear Ice Bucket | This thick acrylic beverage tub is also a “gotta have” item for any party. I love that it’s transparent, making sure no small cans get lost down in the ice. It holds 4 bottles of wine and is also great for bottled water.

Eleven | Fairy Lights | I love decorating with fairy lights! This 12 pack of battery operated lights is great for St. Pat’s day or any holiday or celebration. Tuck them in jars, flower arrangements, the mantle of down the middle of a table for some added sparkle!
