Since St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner (and somewhere over the rainbow) we're taking a trip down memory lane and sharing the best parties we've thrown for this magical little holiday. So, if you're needing some inspiration for your upcoming St. Patrick's Day party, you're in luck! Read on for Bonjour Fête-approved tips and must-have St. Paddy's Day supplies and decorations.

Green and gold St. Patrick's Day decorations

When it comes to St. Patrick’s Day decor, you can never go wrong with incorporating a little green and gold. We love this holiday mantle set-up we did a few years back, and how easy it was to put together! To DIY, just layer a few gold streamers with some various shades of green, then finish it all off with a couple St. Patrick's Day themed banners

We also added a lovely bouquet filled with lots of earthy greens. Floral arrangements are an excellent way to elevate any party scene, so we recommend incorporating them when you can.

Another one of our favorite St. Paddy's Day decorations are these bunting fan garlands in classic Irish green. Not only are they easy and inexpensive, they're also super versatile. They can be opened and draped on a mantle, or cut up and fanned out on a party table!

Pinch us, because we're still dreaming about this stunning St. Paddy’s balloon garland! Balloons are a must when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day party supplies, so we decorated with some in different shades of green and gold. But what makes this particular set-up extra special is this fabulous kissy lip balloon. It's such a unique St. Patrick's Day party decoration, and takes the saying, "Kiss me, I'm Irish" to an adorable new level!

Green foods are always welcome at any St. Patrick’s Day gathering, so we served this amazing green cake a few years back! It made an easy, tasty, and totally aesthetic statement; we'd recommend something similar for the perfect St. Patrick's Day party dessert. And, if you really want to style it up, add a cute cake topper and display it ongreen cake stand

Who said you have to just go green on St. Patrick's Day? The other side of the rainbow is where it's at! We went all out for this St. Paddy's celebration and used lots of colorful balloons, tableware, and desserts.
