St Patricks Day - The Lucky Leprechaun Party theme
Updated: Feb 28, 2019
Top of the morning to yah !
St Patricks's Day falls on a Sunday 17th March for 2019 so there will be lots of Green cheer this year ! St Patrick's Day (also known as St Paddy's Day) parties and celebrations are a great way to keep fun Irish traditions alive here in Australia.
It was believed that there was wee Fairy Folk living in the forests of Ireland and they wore green so as not to be seen ! The Story has it that a Leprachaun (a wee fairy folk) was said to be hiding a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow.
Traditionally on St Patrick's Day the Irish still believe a 4 leaf clover
to be a lucky charm as well as a horse shoe - remember to hold your horseshoe upside down (opening upwards) so your luck doesn't run
The team at 24-7 Party Paks has put together a list of ideas for a kids Irish Lucky Party going green !
Things you will need:-
4 leaf clovers - think my Mum used to tell me to look for these in the garden !
Old horseshoe and paint it gold
table centrepieces - pot of gold - black cauldrons (spray paint them green) filled with bulk treasure chocolate coins

Party Food ideas:-
green cucumber snacks
green jelly cups
mint leaves sweet treat - roll out with a rolling pin and cut into mini clovers
green mexican tortilla roll ups
4 leaf clover chips - and advocado dip
Sprite Lemonade drink - just add a touch of green colouring and a spotty straw
gold coins for your pot of gold
green iced cakes or cupcakes add an edible icing image cake topper printed with St patrick's day theme
You can pretty much add green food colouring to almost everything but remember only a drop at first, you can always add more that way if needed.
