Go Green for Saint Patrick’s Day

While Kermit the Frog may say, “it’s not easy being green,” Wholesale Halloween Costumes disagrees.  With Saint Patrick’s Day right around the corner, there are tons of easy ways to decorate your home for the holiday without breaking your wallet.  Simply skim through our St. Patty’s Day decorating tips and tricks and I’m sure you’ll find your in some luck!

Use Print Outs As Decorations

As a mother of three, I’ve found that the easiest way to decorate your home is usually the click, click and print method.  Online, there are thousands of websites with printable graphics and an endless supply of clipart images. 

For this St. Patrick’s Day, I’m going to print out pictures of leprechauns, raindbows and gold coins.  After cutting them out, I’ll have the kids paste green construction paper to the back to really make them pop!  We’re also coloring popcorn with green food color to make garland for our staircase.

Green Tye Dye T-Shirts

Buying a plain white t-shirt is really cheap (maybe only $5 at a craft store).  After getting a few, you can set up a tie dying station with green dye.  Scrunch the shirts up and dip gently into the basin of die.  Once the shirts have completely dried, you’ll have white and green tie dyed shirts to wear!  This year, I might even write “Kiss Me I’m Irish” on mine.

Pot of Gold Goody Bags

If you’re planning on having a St. Patrick’s Day party this year, these pot of gold goody bags are just perfect.  All you have to do is fill the bottom of a clear plastic bag with chocolate gold coins and the rest with rainbow colored Twizzlers (or licorice).

In this photo, they added a cute little note with “You’re the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow.”  This would make a great present for kids who attended a St. Patty’s Day party.

Drink & Food Recipes

Looking to educate your kids?  Why not read them Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham.  Anything green goes on March 17th!  Looking for an adult beverage?  Check out the hundreds of green drink recipes online.  Personally, I’m partial to these:   Patty’s Day Drinks

No kids and not a big drinker?  Try making the classic Irish dish – Corned Beef and Cabbage.  While it may not sound appetizing, it’s really great fresh out of the pot.  Last year, my husband surprised me by making this recipe.

No matter how you decide to spend the holiday, remember this simple rule when deciding how to spend your St. Patrick’s Day – “Go Green.”
