Are you in the mood to throw a St. Patrick’s Day party? If so, don’t forget the party favors. Here are some inexpensive party favor ideas for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration:
Shamrock shot glass. Give out shamrock shot glasses to guests at your St. Patrick’s Day party. This way, you can provide the liquor and guests will have shot glasses to hang onto throughout the party. Remember, drinking and driving don’t mix, and the law could hold you liable if you allow someone to leave your house in a drunken state, so make sure that guests have designated drivers. You can get shamrock shot glasses at centurynovelty.com for fifty nine cents or less, depending on quantity.
Scratch Offs. Give your St. Patrick’s Day party guests the luck of the Irish (or at least the hope for some of the Irish luck) by handing out scratch off lottery tickets to guests. Scratch offs serve as practical party favors because the average guest appreciates money, so give them hope for some luck of winning some. You can buy scratch off tickets at any convenience store in any state that allows the lottery. Ask the convenience store clerk if they have any St. Patrick’s Day-themed scratch off tickets for one dollar per ticket.
Irish Soda Bread. Buy some miniature cellophane treat bags from centurynovelty.com and stuff small loaves of Irish Soda Bread into the bags. You can hand these small loaves of bread out toward the end of the party, and your guests will have a delicious snack for the next day. You can make your own bread to save money. All you have to do is search the Internet for a quick and easy recipe. If you don’t have the time or patience to make your own Irish Soda Bread, seek help from a local bakery.
Leprechaun Hats. Liven up the party by providing leprechaun hats. You can usually pick these up at a dollar store for a buck or two each. Black or green hats, it doesn’t matter, just make sure that everyone gets hats. You can collect any hats that guests leave at the party and donate them to a local theatre company for costumes. Be sure to buy early, though. These hats usually go fast, so you don’t want to find yourself struggling to get enough hats for all your guests.
Green Pistachio Nuts. Hit the dollar store and buy some dollar beer mugs, glass or plastic, whatever you can find. Fill the beer mugs up with green Pistachio nuts. Make sure that you cover the top with a clear cellophane wrap and tie a green ribbon around the wrap to keep it secure. Give a mug full of nuts to all your guests during the party and watch them eat the nuts while they sit and visit with other guests. Make sure that you provide plenty of bowls for the guests to put their empty shells in to avoid a mess.
