It doesn't need to be St. Patrick's Day for you to have an Irish-themed party. Recreate the feel of a welcoming Irish pub and bring the luck 'o the Irish into your home!
Setting the scene: Welcome your guests by hanging "Cead Mile Failte" in your home's doorway, which means "100,000 welcomes" in Irish. Recreate Ireland's rolling hills with green tablecloths and place settings while you set the mood with traditional Celtic music playing in the background.
Activities: Create your own Blarney Stone! Tradition says if you kiss the stone, you will be given the gift of eloquence. Just remember—you must kiss the stone upside down to receive its magical powers.
Food: You can't go wrong with corned beef and cabbage—the perfect Irish dish.
Drink: No Irish theme party would be complete without Guinness! Make sure you have tall pint glasses on hand. Another great option is Irish coffee made with whiskey and heavy cream.
Party favor: Send your friends home with good luck by providing them with a four-leaf clover as a parting gift.
