When growing up, most of us (unless you're Irish) knew Saint Patrick's Day as the one day in the year you have to wear green otherwise you'll be pinched to death by all the annoying people around you at school. As you grow older, you learn that Saint Patrick's Day is actually one of the greatest drinking holidays in the year (and if you're misfortunate, you'll still have annoying people in your life who will pinch you for not wearing green).
You can hit any Irish pub on this green holiday and they will welcome you with joy and fun rowdiness. Although there is a certain thrill to bar hopping and drinking the night away with strangers, nothing's better than throwing a party and enjoying the holiday with your friends and family.
And don't worry, decorating a Saint Patrick's Day themed party is a lot easier than you think. Take a look at all the super easy and inexpensive DIY ideas below to help you get started. From decorations to food/drinks ideas to fun activities for the kids — we got you covered.
#1. Recreate this big rainbow fringe garland for a playful backdrop!
Just combine different colored tissue paper garlands together (in rainbow color/order) and add white pom poms on top for the clouds.
#2. Paint a pot black and decorate it with gold glitter to make a base for your very own pot of gold.
And then fill the pot with your choice of chocolate filled gold 🙂
#3. For this bold decor, you'll need to purchase letters that spell out lucky and then simply glue-gun pennies onto the letters.
#4. Love s'mores but don't ever get to include them in a themed party? Here's your chance with these adorable leprechaun hat s'mores!
#5. Give your party cups a leprechaun belt by attaching black construction paper and a rhinestone adhesive sticker to the middle of each cup.
