Saint Patrick’s Day is coming around the corner. For more than 1,000 years the Irish have been observing their special day. Saint Paddy’s is more than beer and leprechauns but a feast of Saint Patrick and celebration the heritage and culture of the Irish. Here are some of top tips on how to make this year’s celebration better than your last. 1. Decorations Everything green! Decorate the tables with green table covers and appropriately themed centerpieces. The first impression is always important to set the vibe of the party. If green is too basic, try incorporating orange and white details. The Irish flag, shamrock confetti, balloons, and gold-wrapped chocolate coins can also be laid around the room. And lastly, leave something out for the guest to wear to get them into spirit. Guests will get a kick out of bearded beads or mini leprechaun hats. 2. Entertainment and Music To keep the tradition alive, hire a Celtic band to play at your party. Music was a way the Celtics passed down history, legends, and religion by turning the stories into songs. And don’t forget about the kids this holiday. Though watching bag pipes be played and Irish step dancers perform aren’t the typical party-entertainment. Face painters are fun way to excite the kids and keep them busy. Face painting isn’t only for kids but having shamrocks and rainbows painted on your guest’s faces are a way for everyone to be festive. Here are some other some entertainment options to surprise your guests with. • Leprechauns • Stilt Walkers • Celtic Dancers • Celtic Bands • Bag Pipers • Beer Tasting   3. Food You probably heard of eating corned beef and cabbage being a traditional dish to eat on St. Patrick’s Day. However, it isn’t the national dish of Ireland but a more affordable option. During the time of immigration to U.S., the first generation of Irish-Americans were in search a similar dish of their homeland. Since prices were too high, they settled for corned beef and cabbage instead of the pricey pork and potatoes at the time. Don’t worry though, if that doesn’t sound appetizing, we have other ideas for food that may be more appealing! • Irish Soda Bread • Shepherd’s Pie • Shamrock Shaped Cupcakes • Charcuterie board with a rainbow display/Pot o’ Gold   4. Cocktails This year go beyond green beer but add a whole Drink Bar with some of our favorite cocktails…and maybe with a leprechaun bartender! Don’t forget the way the drinks look is almost as important as how they taste! • Guinness beer- of course! • Pot o’ Gold Shots • Lucky Charms Shots • Irish Mint Mojito • Shamrock Sour • Green Apple Sangria   Breezin’ Entertainment & Productions offers premier service that is sure to both relieve the stress of the event planning process and guarantee that the entertainment that is provided exceeds all expectations.
