Take a quick glimpse at the calendar and you’ll notice that tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day! And since everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, we have a few ideas to help you celebrate the Luck o’ the Irish with your March Break-ing clan.

Throw a St. Patrick’s Day Party!
With so many great St. Patrick’s Day novelty items available at your local dollar store, it’s never been easier to throw together a last-minute theme party. Start with a few green finger foods (celery, broccoli, guacamole, etc.) and throw in some fun home-made games (pin the tail on the sheep, anyone?) and you’ll be ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in grand style. Need some help to plan the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day menu? Check out these great recipes:

 Sheepish Snacks
These colourful and delicious cupcakes feature Ireland’s unofficial national animal: The noble sheep. Get little ones involved in the decorating for an easy afternoon project in the kitchen.

Yummy Leprechaun Treat
Forget Lucky Charms—these clover shaped treats are fun and healthy. Pair with some green-tinted juice and you’re well on your way to a delicious pub lunch.

 Broccoli and Potato Soup
This quick and easy dinner idea from our friends at the 20 Minute Supper Club is both festive and budget-friendly. Pair with some homemade soda bread for a real taste of the Emerald Isle.
