March is here and making us all feel lucky. That’s right, New Years might seem like yesterday but St. Patrick’s Day has arrived, and you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate this green-tinged holiday. Try these easy-to-make recipes, sweet treats and simple home décor tips to get you in the spirit.
While we encourage everyone to wear green on St. Patty’s Day, there are so many other ways to indulge in this fun holiday. Expand your tastebuds with some traditional Irish recipes such as this Smokey Cheese and Potato Soup or Mini Shepherds Pies – both are staples in Ireland and are hearty entrées that are sure to be enjoyed.
No matter the holiday, sweet treats are a delicious way to participate in the festivities. Cool down with this Shamrock Shake that is simple to make and the perfect way to add a little mint green to the day. If brightly colored desserts aren’t your thing, we have you covered with an Irish Coffee Sundae with caramel whiskey sauce – an utterly delicious combination you might find yourself making long after St. Patrick’s Day is over.
Lastly, there’s no harm in bringing a little luck into your home. From four leaf clover art to fresh greenery, you can celebrate St. Patty’s Day in a variety of subtle ways. Use small green accents like throw pillows, fun-themed dishes or a fresh bouquet of succulents for a centerpiece. As always, holidays are meant to be celebrated with others, so invite family and friends and enjoy the day with a tall glass of Guinness – you’ll feel the luck in no time.
