Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

If you’re anything like me, then you know how to put the PRO in “procrastination.” What better time to get some St. Patty’s inspiration than the day before? I’m killing it.

I’m proud of my Irish heritage and had the pleasure of studying abroad in Ireland a few years ago. My time in the Emerald Isle was magical, so anything I can do to recreate it is pure luck of the Irish.

Start the day with traditional Irish boxty — a fave of mine from my time abroad.

No St. Patrick’s Day dinner is complete without corned beef and cabbage.

Beer, chocolate and pretzels? These cupcakes must be heaven-sent.

[DRINK]

Guinness is my drink of choice, but I’ll have to switch to something lighter after my 8th pint.

If beer isn’t your thing, try one of these tasty St. Patty’s cocktails.

End the night with an always-delicious classic Irish coffee. Yum!

[DECORATE]

Stock up on awesomely tacky glasses, moustaches, necklaces and more.

Whether you’re hosting — or just toasting — your mates, these favors are adorbs.

Stainless coasters class up even the dingiest pubs.

[CELEBRATE]

Kissing a leprechaun in Dublin — typical Saturday.

Surprise! Popping up for St. Patrick’s Day greetings.

Overlooking the Cliffs of Moher (700 ft. drop, NBD).

Between a ladies’ dance party tonight, suite tickets to tomorrow’s Lightning game and my bestie from college visiting this weekend, I think it’s best that St. Patrick’s Day only comes once a year.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend — cheers!
