13 St. Patrick’s Day Party Ideas for Adults 2022 — St. Patrick’s Day Party 2022

Hot take: St. Patrick’s Day is a very underrated holiday. March sucks (winter, can you GTFO already?) and St. Patty’s is just about the only good thing that happens all month. Unless you’re lucky enough to still get a spring break. In which case, can I come?

What makes March 17th so great? It’s an excuse to wear a super extra outfit (all green, obviously), drink on a Thursday (this year), and consume an impressive amount of Lucky Charms. Need I say more?

Now that you’re fully convinced that St. Patrick’s day is great, you should totally get on the bandwagon and celebrate it with me. How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, you ask? With a party, le duh.

It’s okay if the last time you celebrated the Irish holiday was in the fourth grade, I forgive you. You’re just gonna have to make up for it by going all out this year, safely, with your vaccinated friends. And if you’re planning to hit the bars, make sure to have your mask handy!

But before you start furiously Googling What do you serve at a St. Patrick’s Day party? and How do you dress for a St. Patrick’s day party?, let me help you out. And no, you can’t just cover your apartment in shamrocks and call it a day. We’re talking green food, festive décor, strong drinks, and on-theme drinking games. Here, actually fun and original St. Patrick’s Day party tips and ideas for your soon-to-be-legendary bash.
