With St. Patty’s Day just around the corner, you and your family may be brainstorming activities to do. As the weather may not be lighting up just right in your area, you may be considering hosting your own St. Patrick’s Day brunch in the comfort of your own home. With that being said, Mint has created a few printables to make your party planning easy when budgeting.
Step 1: Save Your Pot O’ Gold
First, you must protect your lucky pot of gold before and after the party! As party’s can easily rack up your monthly expenses, it’s always helpful to budget everything you are wanting for your party. For items you aren’t wanting to splurge on, create a separate list to keep track of what guests you would like to bring to your brunch party.
When planning your party, print out this Planning Checklist to make sure you stick to your budget:
Step 2: Brainstorm Who You’d Like to Invite
Next, come together and write down a list of who you’d like to have at your green party. Once you’ve thought of everyone, start printing out your invites, cut them out, and mail them off to all your lucky guests. If you aren’t able to get everything you need at the store, add a reminder at the bottom of each invite of an item your guests can bring to make the party even better!
Step 3: Switch To a More Green Scenery
Your backyard might just be the perfect amount of green decoration you’ll need for your party. Set out a table for all your food and drinks, some chairs, and even a firepit if you feel like it! Once your guests have confirmed whether they are able to make it or not, send them golden tickets. Have each guest hand them over at the entrance to your leprechaun party.
Step 4: Get To Cooking!
On to the best part, the food! While food starts coming out of the oven, off the stove, or even out of the fridge or freezer, make sure you have our food labels all cut out and ready to go! Label each leprechaun friendly food item and display them neatly on your table for your guests to easily navigate what they want on their plate.
Step 5: Spark Friendly Competition
Really get you party going by handing out our St. Patrick’s Day Trivia. There’s nothing better than learning about this famous holiday over some friendly competition and some good food. Who knows, the one that gets all the answers correct may just win a lucky prize!
Step 6: Create an at Home Photo Booth
You must take pictures for your friends and family to look back on years to come! To make this even more special, cut out our photo booth props. Even tape them to a stick to hold up and make funny faces while looking at the camera. Print and hand out these pictures for your guests to keep, during our after the party has come to a wrap.
Step 7: Search for the Gold
There has to be some gold hidden somewhere in your house! While one of you starts wrapping up dinner, have a sneaky little leprechaun rummage around your place to leave some extra gold treasures. Hand out our St. Patty’s Day Hunt printable to see if your guests can find any in any of the most frequently hidden areas!
