As long as I have known Lara, she has always made a fun St. Patrick’s Day themed dinner for her family each year. I usually just put up decorations to celebrate and maybe buy a bag of See’s candies gold coins. This year we decided to team up: her food and my decorations.
Here is our table all put together! All ready for our kids to enjoy.
A couple different views of the table set up.
Target has this green banner year round and sometimes I see it on clearance. Keep your eyes peeled. You can switch out the banner pieces to make it solid or patterned.
As far as that shamrock, I’m pretty sure I got at the Dollar Store.
An Irish friend of our family told us in Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations are all about potatoes and beer.
We aren’t drinkers and this party was mainly for our children so we opted for root beer.
Topped with a cute Straw.
Now for the best part!! The food…
Irish Boxty (recipe found here)
Colcannon (recipe found here)
Braised Corned Beef Brisket (recipe found here)
Now we are ready to start this party!!
Consider us LUCKY to be eating such a yummy and festive dinner!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from our family to yours.
