St. Patrick’s Day Snacks & Wine Crafts
Sláinte, Wine Sisters! Did you know that St. Patrick’s Day was once celebrated with no beer, whiskey or wine? For most of the 20th century, St. Patrick’s Day was considered a strictly religious holiday in Ireland, which meant that the nation’s pubs were closed for business on March 17. The day was converted to a national holiday in 1970, and the stout promptly resumed flowing.
Feel free to use that one when you’re entertaining at home or out with friends next week!
Of course, you know we’ve been busy pinning away some fun and festive ideas to celebrate our favorite little green holiday. And we pulled together all our favorites, from decor to drinks, right here:
Set the bar!
We can’t resist putting a bar cart together for the occasion! Follow our tips here for decorating one of your own.
Hold the green beer
Instead, we’ll be dropping a few green grapes into our glasses of wine – all the fun, no food coloring needed!
Or, how about a couple of the-cutest-ever Guinness jello shots?
Corned beef & cabbage, with a twist!
As cutie-pie sliders.
Try it in a wonton wrapper as corned beef and cabbage egg rolls.
Try it on flatbread with a dill-sauce drizzle.
Or the tried-and-true favorite, potato skins.
Festive table decor
Just add some sparkles, flowers and coins…
A runner of faux moss or grass + gold coins = genius decor idea! We love this one from Après Fête.
And, of course, crafts!
Have your wine bottles all lined up! We’re fans of this “lucky” craft from Irishfitz on Etsy.
Find three corks (you may have some of those around) and a piece of tape and you’ve got yourself a handy shamrock stamp.
Cheers to a fun and festive St. Patrick’s Day!
