Saint Patrick's Day Party Ideas

A St. Patrick Day party pulls family and friends together in one place, and planning this greenest of gatherings is easier than finding a four-leaf clover. If you're looking for St. Patrick's Day party ideas that are fun, tasty and colorful, then you've hit the pot of the gold. Creative St. Patrick drinks, nibbles and decorations will make your celebration sing and jig. Remember to serve Irish desserts for a sweet ending to a bountiful and boisterous Saint Patrick's Day party.

Build your St. Patrick Day party around a fun-filled event – and it doesn't have to be dyeing your local waterway green! Check local listings for St. Patrick's Day party ideas that everyone can get into, like a live broadcast of one of the big parades. The St. Patrick's Day parades in New York City, Boston and Chicago attract thousands of participants each year. Down refreshing St. Patrick drinks while rooting for teams in the Gaelic Games, or see if the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame or the Boston Celtics are playing live hoops.

For a St. Patrick Day party that's sure to be a hit with kids, host your own Gaelic games indoors or in the backyard. Sign kids up for St. Patty Day party games like potato sack races or pin-the-four-leaf-clover-on-the-leprechaun. A Paddy Day karaoke contest – like Irish-American Idol – will have kid and grown-up contestants crooning. Offer St. Patrick's Day party favors for all who dare to tackle the microphone, with special Irish food prizes for anyone who takes on "Molly Malone," "Danny Boy," or "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling."

Cook a St. Patrick Day party dinner with hearty, traditional Irish or Irish-American dishes. Try St. Patrick Day appetizers like potato scones or a tempting spread of Irish cheddar cheeses and artisan breads. Serve St. Patrick's Day drinks with slow-cooked Irish stew or spicy corned beef and cabbage. Irish desserts can be as simple as sprinkling bright green jelly beans on rich chocolate cupcakes, or on top of mountains of mint ice cream for the perfect St. Patty treats.

A St. Patrick Day party can celebrate Irish cinema with a screening of a film by renowned Irish director Neil Jordon, or stream the heartfelt musical "Once." Other cinematic St. Patrick's Day party ideas can include screenings of Irish-themed classics like "Finian's Rainbow," "Darby O'Gill and the Little People," or Irish crime thrillers like "The Departed" or "Gangs of New York." Munch green candy like tasty green jelly beans in many delicious flavors instead of popcorn while watching any one of the six campy-creepy "Leprechaun" movies for a fun St. Patty party .
