Seeing Green - St. Patrick's Day Celebration Ideas

We're excited to turn our attention to yet another event to celebrate.  This month it's St. Patrick's Day!
Everything doesn't have to be covered in green, so we wanted to show you some subtle ways to show your "Irish Pride" this March 17th.

Food First - what to cook? We scoured the internet for recipes that were twists on traditional Irish cuisine - like these, Corned Beef and Cabbage Turnovers - brilliant!

And we love the sound of an Irish Grilled Cheese!

Lastly, we couldn't help but share these beer battered broccoli stems!

Don't forget dessert!

Keep it festive with these adorable (and most likely delicious!) shamrock cookies!

Or if you're feeling up for a challenge in the kitchen - try your hand at these Macarons!
Pistachio & Lemon Cream Macarons via What's for Lunch Honey?
Beer is a huge player for this holiday, and after all that snacking you're bound to be thirsty!
So, why not turn this party into a Beer Tasting? 

Traditionally, a craft beer tasting consists of one of each of these:
Seasonal, Stout, Lager, IPA, Wheat, Ale, Pilsner, and a Porter.
Pick and choose your favorites, choose them by how fun their labels are 
or ask your package store attendant!

Depending on your guest list, pick up the necessary supplies - 
Libbey 4oz tasting glasses and Paddle Board from Peele Paddle

We love these "Rate Your Beer" Coasters

And last but not least... a fun twist on serving up a pint - Beer Floats!
Here are the recipes we can't wait to try!
