St Patrick's Day is just around the corner which means....green beer and silly hats? Not anymore! Now that we're all mature grown adults (we are, right?), we thought it was time to up our St Patrick's Day. Let's make it less of a drunken mess and more of a fun time to get together with friends for a dinner party!
Every good party starts with a beautiful invitation. We thought it would be fun to send along an Irish blessing with the invite as this day is also known as the Feast of St Patrick. How perfect!
We love the idea of incorporating nature whenever we can so creating a unique backdrop for this table was top of mind. The project was quite simple. We got a few frames, took out the glass and hung them on the wall with Command Strips to avoid any paint damage. Our talented florist played around with a few ferns and hanging plants to add that bit of nature to our art piece.
For the actual table top design, we skipped the cheesy leprechaun decor and chose to take this St Paddy's Day party idea to the next level. We wanted to recreate a sort of pub feel with darker place settings and touches of gold details. I can imagine the meal being served family style and all those candles being lit. Cozy, elegant and intimate. Wanna know a secret? See those black chargers under the plates? Well, it turns out those are serving trays. I saw them at La Pinata Rentals and thought they would be perfect for this!
Did you notice the little charm on the napkins? We made those. We foraged for some clovers (while they weren't 4-leaf clovers, I still consider them lucky) and went to Michaels to get a gold backing in the jewelry section. We gently placed the clover on top of the gold backing and covered it with a clear "bubble sticker" also sold at Michaels. Tada!
It wouldn't be a St Patrick's Day party without a bar! We put together a simple but fun bar cart for this dinner party. Guests can help themselves to a Shamrockarita or Guinness Float.
Hope you enjoyed and are Feeling Lucky for your upcoming St Patrick's Day dinner party! Be sure to check out our Instagram for more photos of our projects. If you try this design at home, we'd love to see your photos too!
