What's the best way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, you ask? With a Leprechaun-approved St. Paddy's bash, of course! If you're planning to party this March 17th and need a little celebration inspiration, then you've struck gold! We've come up with the perfect St. Patrick's Day party theme ideas, and we're sharing all the details on must-have decorations, treats, and party supplies. 

And lucky you, because these St. Patrick’s Day party ideas are so versatile! You can get two celebrations in one by switching out a few St. Patrick's Day party decorations. That means a festive fête for adults can turn into a darling St. Patrick's Day party for kids in a pinch! 

Let's dig into the classic clover-themed party first. When picking out decorations and tablewarego green! We went with this spectacular green balloon garland, and layered it over a complementary backdrop.

P.S. These backdrops are totally DIY-able. We live for a good DIY St. Patrick's Day decoration!

The key to this party is bringing in the luck-o-the-Irish to the United States, so grab all the shamrocks and gold coins you can find! These sparkly four leaf clovers are so charming, and they look great as a decorative centerpiece on any party table. They're also a shamrockin' option for St. Patrick's Day home decor!

Gold chocolate coins are also fantastic to add to the party scenery. Not to mention, they're a tasty little treat if you're running out of St. Patrick's Day party food ideas on this feast day! 

We aren't messing around when we say this party is all about clovers. We served our green food and St. Patrick’s Day desserts on these adorable shamrock paper plates and napkins. We layered them over large green napkins and plates for this theme, and added shiny gold cutlery.

If you're throwing a St. Patrick's Day party for adults, we suggest elevating each setting with chic striped embellishments. Our Gold Signature Stripe plates, napkins, and cups or our Emerald Green Stripe plates and napkins are perfect for Paddy’s.

Let's head over to the other side of the rainbow and greet our next St. Patrick's Day party idea! This magically delicious theme is easy to achieve by adding a few more decorations. 

Who said you can't have pink St. Patrick's Day party supplies? We love the look of pink and green together, so we draped this fabulous bunting fan garland over our original backdrop. And we couldn’t pass up an adorable rainbow cloud balloon! It's a necessity if you're throwing a St. Patrick's Day party for little Leprechauns in search of a pot of gold!

This party theme is all about rainbows, so anything colorful and bright is a must! We're obsessed with this rainbow table runner and the whimsical look it gives to any party space. You can also get crafty and cut it up to make some adorable DIY St. Patrick's Day party invitations. Be sure to tie it all together with a pretty pink floral bouquet!

To carry on with a little more color, we placed a few honeycomb decorations around. It's a super unique and inexpensive way to decorate and add dimension. And since every rainbow leads to a pot of gold, we kept those shiny chocolate coins on the table amongst the new additions. 

To switch things up, feel free to add some checkers to the mix! These checkered shamrock plates and napkins lots of fun, and they complement a posh pink table runner perfectly. Tie it all together with our Signature Blanc White plate, en voila!  

We're suckers for St. Patrick's Day treats, so we recommend completing each setting with added a tasty green lollipop or leprechaun lips. Candies like this make excellent party favors, but if you want an alternative, we recommend giving out St. Patrick's Day coloring pages! 

This is a rainbow-themed party after all, so coloring is encouraged. We carry tons of fun posters and art supplies for your little leprechauns. (Hello, easy St. Patrick's Day activities).
