So you’ve just placed your order for the hottest green loungewear essentials on Vavavoom, but you’re still without a POA for Paddy’s big day. Fret not mó cailín, whether it’s a wild one or a chill one you’re after – we’ve got some ideas to mark the day.
1. SAY IT IN IRISH!
Give a Cúpla Focail for the day – make it your mission to use as many words and phrases as Gaelige as you possibly can!
2. GREEN TREATS!
Why not get super creative and bake some St. Patrick’s Day themed delights – for cupcakes, scones and cakes with shamrock decorations, bake as normal and simply roll out green ready to roll icing (or use food colouring). Stamp out shapes using a shamrock cutter, then place on top – chef Ramsey vibes with minimum effort.
3. HOST A PADDY’S PARTY!
Whether it’s with your household or with the girls virtually, this one is sure to bring a smile and plenty of lols to all. Grab some face paint for that iconic shamrock cheek look, make a playlist – only Irish artists, and/or Irish themed tunes allowed; stock up on the Guinness (prosecco also permitted), and bring those pub vibes to your living room with a Celtic themed pub quiz night.
4. IRISH ‘FLIX & CHILL
Curl up on the sofa and have yourself an Irish themed movie marathon. Whether it’s just to have a good lol at the Irish accent attempts in a rom com or for a more patriotic vibe for the day, we’ve put together a list of some of our faves right here:
Darby O’Gill and the Little People (1959)
The Snapper (1993)
Michael Collins (1996)
Leap Year (2010)
P.S. I Love You (2007)
