Annaliese Johnson of Made of Sugar and Spice designed this bright pastel themed St. Patrick’s Day Party with a stunning rainbow made out of paper fans! I love all of her creative DIY uses of the unfinished wood shamrock ornaments – an easy and fun way to dress up your party or add a fun kid’s craft! This kit has wooden shamrocks, rainbows, leprechaun hats and horseshoes!
And how adorable are these Pot of Gold Place Settings? You can paint or embellish the posts, add a ribbon with a rainbow name tag and fill them with gold coin chocolates! Love this idea!

Haeley Giambalvo of Design Improvised put together this elegant adult-friendly dinner party for St. Patrick’s Day! It’s sophisticated, but still playful, capturing the spirit of the holiday. We love the non-traditional use of the paper honeycomb banner as a centerpiece down the table! Serve traditional corned beef and cabbage and enjoy a delightful evening with friends!
How cute are these green shamrock drink stirrers too? Adults and kids alike will get a kick out of mixing their drink with one and they double as fun decor!
Are you the kind of hostess who loves giving – or getting – party favors? Us too! We are over the rainbow for these adorable lucky shamrock favor bags. You can get them in a variety of sizes to fit whatever pot of gold you tuck inside!
Other than getting to pinch people who don’t wear green, a child’s favorite part of St. Patrick’s Day is pondering leprechauns and what lies at the end of a rainbow! That’s why we love this rainbow themed party Shauna Krantz of Ella & Annie dreamed up!
Featuring leprechaun hats and shamrock glasses at each place setting, rainbow fruit kabobs and a paper lantern turned into a pot of gold, this party is full of lucky inspiration!
