2.   Since most of your event is likely to be filled with green décor, keeping the tablecloths simple will ensure your color palette doesn’t become an overload of emerald green. This traditional tablecloth also signifies an authentic symbol of the Irish heritage, the Celtic Knot. Your true Irish guests will be very impressed!

3.   This beautiful centerpiece brings different shades of green to the middle of your tables as a focal point. Choosing mostly white or neutral décor with green accents can look stunning. Incorporating Granny Smith apples at the bottom of the vessel is an unexpected touch that will have guests fascinated.

4.  These fun green martinis can serve as the “lucky charm” for your guests. Sprinkling the rim with colorful candies makes this drink look like it’s suitable for kids, but beware, though it’s delicious, it is only for adults! To see the recipe click here.

5.  Whether your event is family centered or just for adults, this DIY décor piece is suitable for both. Using a rustic frame paired with all different colors of green clovers, this timeless décor piece can be displayed every year! Use a clover shaped stencil to cut out pieces in each color of thick paper or sturdy fabric. Then hang wire from one side of the frame to the other using a nail or screw to adhere on both sides. Finally, hot glue the back of your clovers to the wire and let dry.
