We have all been there, night of St Patrick's Day, green beer everywhere, including spilling down your back from the guy who started “celebrating” a little too early. Don’t blame him, this is the one day of the year where everyone parties for some reason nobody quite knows why and it’s JUST FINE. But if you want to be the one to bring a little festive trivia to the group and impress your friends, keep reading and we will tell you some fun facts about St Pattys Day and give you tips on how to make your party stand out from the rest!
Step 1: Ditch the green beer and step up your game with easy, simple, and much more impressive green cocktails!
Especially if you’re working in a bar, create your own green cocktail using midori or sour apple schnapps. Or just add some green food coloring to champagne and take your party from frat-phat! Ex. 1.5 oz Midori 2 oz lime juice 2 oz Sweet and Sour mix .5 oz sprite. Add 1 oz vodka for a little extra kick!
Step 2: Drop some knowledge! Did you know that St Patrick was born in Britain?
Did you know that the original color for St Patricks day was blue? Or that it used to be a dry holiday? These are interesting nuggets of information to drop during conversation or you can turn your whole party into a trivia night while still playing tunes with Fat Bottom Trivia 3.2 - "St Paddy's Day Party" or the St Paddy's Music dobOFF Bingo Cards.
You can choose your own questions or pick from a variety of pre-made games for less than ten bucks. Always a fun way to keep everyone entertained!
Step 3: Party favors! Now that you’re throwing the most authentic soiree around, stick with traditions!
For over 60 years, the Prime Minister of Ireland has presented the President of the United states with a bowl of Shamrocks as a symbol of good tidings. Starting in 1952 with President Truman and Prime Minister Kenny, it has become a long standing tradition between the two countries. I’m not saying you need to hand out an entire bowl, but Amazon has packs of shamrock shot glasses and necklaces that can be at your door in two days! Easy peasy.
Step 4: Food.
A necessity for any event, but especially one that is solely focused around excessive consumption of alcohol. No need to get fancy, a beef stew or an extra large shepherd's pie will feed many and fill your guests with enough sustenance to counteract at least a few of those cocktails. And don’t you dare forget those potatoes!
Step 5: Hire A Leprechaun
Admit it, we’ve all wished for a little luck of the irish, hand delivered by a magical bearded mischief-maker. You’d be surprised how many websites are around these days to supply you with exactly that! We are truly living in the times of having anything and everything delivered to you at a moments notice. But move quickly, these little bundles of joy won’t be available for long!

Try These Ideas For Your Next Xmas Party:
1. Pick a Theme
Summon your inner grandma! Don ‘er (get it? Donner!) very best horny santa sweater. Instead of traditional ugly christmas sweaters, pick a theme. Memes/political/favorite tv show. Switch it up a bit! Remind everyone of Festivus for the rest of us! Or stir the pot by sporting a “Make Christmas Great Again” sweater.
2. Cut The Reservation Costs
Instead of having to prep your house just to make a mess of it, or spending too much money to rent event space at a hotel, make a reservation at your favorite bar/restaurant. More often than not they wont charge you to reserve the space, instead will have a tab minimum (which, lets face it, you and your drunk ass friends will be able to hit no problem). Be sure to order share plates and pitchers instead of individual meals to save a little extra dough.
3. Play Some Games!
Music Bingo Xmas edition is an easy, inexpensive and uber fun way to get everyone in your party involved. Who doesn’t want to get down with Wham! for a little holiday cheer? Not your style, no worries, Music Bingo Christmas has the hottest tunes from Ariana Grande to Frank Sinatra. There’s something for everybody. Bonus is, everybody already knows how to play bingo plus you get to listen to a variety of holiday tunes! Offer prizes such as shots/cookies/gift certificates, whichever fits into your price range.
4. Donate! Donate! Donate!
If your boyfriend/girlfriends friends haven’t quite accepted you to the group or are still trying to figure out what your deal is, show them how much you care by setting up a donation bin for those in need. Everybody has an extra sweater or jacket they will never wear again, make them feel good about themselves and keep the homeless a little toastier this winter by sending your warm clothes over to the Salvation Army or your favorite charitable organization.
5. Create Christmas Cocktails
Whip up some liquid love such as spiked eggnog or a peppermint martini. There are endless recipes for christmas cocktails, step yours up by crushing up some candy canes, rimming a glass with simple syrup and making those drinks look fancy as f***. The difference between this and simply putting it in a mug, is if it looks nice, nobody will notice how badly you’ve (inevitably) messed it up.
No need to go over the top, a great christmas party needs just a few key tricks to stand out. Keep everyone entertained with interactive games and cocktails, do some good while looking good and support your local bars!
