Throw an Irish-Themed Party for St. Patrick’s Day

Green, of course, is the color of the day, so decorate with emerald shamrocks and leprechauns with their pots of gold. You can make an Irish door hanging with inexpensive supplies from your local craft store, or learn how to fold a green napkin into a cute shamrock shape.

Cook up some Irish-inspired treats like a Smoky Cheese and Potato Soup that can be made with the cheddar from our Deluxe Smokehouse Collection Gift Box. Use a shamrock cookie cutter to cut out a piece of bread to smear with pesto and float atop the soup. You can also fix some beer-glazed sausage and apples using our award-winning beef summer sausage and apples from our Orchard’s Bounty Gift Basket.

 

You can’t go wrong with serving a traditional Irish meal of corned beef, cabbage and new potatoes. Use Hickory Farms Sweet Hot Mustard from your well-stocked pantry to give it a burst of flavor.

Break out the green beer (just add a couple drops of green food coloring to the cups before pouring) and Irish whiskey. While darker beers like Guinness won’t react as well with the coloring, they’re authentically Irish enough to stand-alone. For an authentic experience, serve up some Irish car bombs, a potent mix of Jameson Irish whiskey and Irish cream liqueur dropped into a pint of Guinness. Slainte!

Whatever holidays you and your family celebrate throughout the year, Hickory Farms has all the essentials to make your gatherings memorable. Order online, or find a store near you.
