How to Plan an Adult St. Patrick’s Day Party

Celebrate this Irish Holiday by having an adult St. Patrick’s Day party for your friends. Let this collection of simple ideas help make your fun and have your guests going “green.”


St. Patrick’s Day color is green, but don’t forget that you can add in orange and white–colors of the Irish flag. Symbols for St. Pat’s Day is well known–leprechauns, rainbows, shamrocks, and pots of gold. You will be able to find most of what you need at a dollar store or a party store.

Print out St Pat themed pictures and put inside of current frames or buy a cheap new one at a dollar store. Over the Big Moon and Pizzazzerie have designs you can print out.

Wine bottle decorations are very popular now. Buy Irish themed ribbon and a St. Patrick’s Day wooden ornament. Apply using hot glue. Or you can place a short string of twinkle lights in a green bottle. Make a bouquet using various picks and decorate bottle with stickers.

You can’t go wrong with pots of clover. Put them in a boot; leprechaun hat turned upside down, St. Patrick’s Day theme vases or wrap in bright green foil.

Make cute construction paper shamrocks following instructions at Sugar Bee Crafts.

Another quick and easy  idea is to put a pillar candles in a tall hurricane candle holder, then pour split peas into covering about inch or so of the candle.

Buy small bird houses and spray paint green, using glitter is optional, and create a mini leprechaun village.
