Ideas for A St. Patrick's Day Wedding Party
Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, I thought that I’d jump start things for those planning a party with some truly unique invitations and more.
For a person planning a fun-filled affair with both genders, these cute beer-shaped invitations are great for a couple planning an engagement party on St Patrick’s Day. Try these from announcingit.com:
For an engagement party cake for the couple, you can buy a mold in the shape of a shamrock and decorate it with green sugar crystals, while using a simple buttercream frosting. Try Confectionary House:
In the area of fashion, you don’t have to dress like a leprechaun because there are dozens of beautiful dresses in a lovely shade of green. This gorgeous bridesmaid dress from Jenny Yoo in a pretty sage green color is so elegant yet it doesn’t look ostentatious at all. From Flutter Boutique:
Go with classic calla lilies or vanilla cream roses for a stylish bouquet or centerpiece. Visit Martha Stewart for some really great examples!
Ah, what to take home? Use a dainty organza bag decorated with embroidery, and fill it with some goodies! You could give any of the following items or all of them if you want to be extra generous on this day:
Green M&M’s® - my personal favorite
Gold Jordan almonds
Gold or green foil wrapped chocolates in the shape of coins or shamrocks
Miniature chocolate leprechauns
Shamrock shaped cookies
