I’m not Irish at all. Growing up in New York, I felt like I was in the minority because of this fact. In elementary school, St. Patrick’s Day meant someone’s mom brought homemade Irish soda bread and we made leprechaun arts and crafts. As an adult, the focus is on green beer. No matter what your plans are for St. Patrick’s this year, here are a few fun ideas to incorporate into your plans, including two alternatives to green beer.
#5 Green Leprechaun Cocktail
Why drink green beer when you can make things classier? This easy to make cocktail (there are only three ingredients) steps St. Patrick’s Day up a notch. Recipe at Celebrations At Home.
#4 Mantel Decor
Now that I have a mantel in my new house, I love the idea of styling it in fun ways for different holidays. If I were super ambitious, I’d do something like this – it’s an appropriate use of burlap. DIY instructions at Landeelu.com.
#3 Homemade Irish Cream
If green cocktails aren’t your thing, why not try and make your own Irish Cream? This recipe looks relatively straightforward and super tasty. Recipe at A Night Owl Blog.
#2 Frame Photo Booth
If you’re hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party, this would be a fun addition after the green beer or #5 and #3. Via Babble.
#1 Creme de Menth Brownies
If you’re hosting a party or just attending one, this is a great St. Patrick’s Day boozy dessert. I can’t wait to try this recipe! Via Party Blu Prints.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
