Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I love this holiday – it’s always so fun, cheery and bright. Oh how I miss the days of the pancake keggers and the endless green beer however I’m celebrating in a more sophisticated way this year (I suppose). I kicked it off with a wonderfully green pasta dinner with friends last night (highly recommend this recipe, it’s light, tasty and refreshing!) and will be having some pints with other friends this afternoon. I figured I would round up an outfit or at least a recipe for you to try this evening should you fancy a little Irish celebration.
1. Irish Soda Bread – Last year, during a St. Patrick’s Day themed brunch I hosted – we made the most delicious Irish Soda Bread and I highly recommend adding it to your dinner table ce soir.
2. Olive Green Silk Shell – If you’re playing hostess, you may need to don some green and if your closet isn’t up for it – pop into your nearest J.Crew for this pretty and functional top.
3. Shamrocks – If you aren’t feeling inspired by the beer or the green you’d have to agree that these shamrocks are picture perfect.
4. Shake It Up – So you don’t care for any of the above? What about the Shamrock Shake from McDonalds? I haven’t had one in year but it would sad to not celebrate at all!
