Planning a St. Patrick Day Party in 2021
Traditionally, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated by large gatherings of happy people who enjoy a plethora of delicious food, drinks, and signs of affection! 2021, however, is going to be a little bit different than the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations prior. These days, whether it is state-mandated or not, many of us are still socially distancing, and know that it is time to have fun in a different way! Let theLAShop show you how to party safely this St. Patrick’s Day.
Eat all things green
Did you know that green eggs and ham were real? Eat all things green! This fun tradition can be celebrated by everyone in the family! Be creative and experiment with different types of foods. Use green dye to color cakes and other desserts or look for different ways to serve broccoli, celery, salad, guacamole, or apples!
On a diet? Try our healthy green juice recipes that you can make at home! Green juice has plenty of health benefits including:
- Increased energy
- Improved sleep
- Weight loss
- Stronger immune system
Start a Traditional Irish Garden
Planting a hearty vegetable garden on or around St. Patrick’s Day is also a well-known tradition. This is because fruits and vegetables such as peas, potatoes, and strawberries can be grown around these times. Irish gardens are also known for their beautiful floral design and statuesque decor. Learn how to create your traditional Irish garden here with fruits, vegetables, statues, and flowers.
Make Adult Green Drinks
No one can deny that celebrating the holiday with your favorite drink is a time-honored tradition! This year, take the time to explore a variety of drinks or try something new! Keep the tradition alive with our top favorite drinks!
Explore the Irish culture
Learn about the Irish culture by checking out books or movies about Ireland and the history of Saint Patrick’s Day from your local library. Have the kids watch a video of an Irish dance performance (YouTube is a great place to find one) and have the family try some of the dance moves themselves. This activity will get the whole family moving and probably produce some giggles too. For the crafty, try painting or drawing an Irish flag or four leaf clover. If you are lucky enough to be Irish, make a family tree and discuss your heritage. For dinner try serving a traditional Irish meal like corn beef and cabbage. If this isn’t a family favorite, Reuben sandwiches may be a good alternative.
There are so many ways to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day that do not involve the stereotypical party we may first think of. Parents can get creative with crafts and activities that are family-friendly and sure to become a well loved tradition in years to come.
