Alright, folks. I don’t know about you, but when I think about St. Patrick’s Day, I immediately think about going to a pub. More specifically, I think about going to a pub where there is lots of beer being poured, green everything everywhere, and singing karaoke. Perhaps, I am just thinking back to past experiences or things I have seen in movies, but that truly is what I think about when it comes to this iconic and very green holiday. Therefore, we are gonna talk about how you can host your own little St. Paddy’s Day fun in your at-home pub (complete with a karaoke machine).
So, let’s get your home looking like an Irish pub! You’ll need a place to host, and you could totally do it anywhere in your house, but with the warmer weather, you could even think about making it an outdoor, patio-style pub!
The Party Place has tons of options to get that pub vibe with signs, decorating kits, and even some accessories for your guests/”customers.” Here are the top 5 decoration picks from me to decorate your pub!
- Metallic St. Patrick’s Day Beer and Shamrocks Banner
- Beer Mug Cutout Metal Hanging Sign
- St. Patrick’s Day Bar Decorating Kit
Next, let’s talk about food. Pub food. We all love it, you know you do. It is also a relatively easy type of food to make, especially for larger quantities so there is another plus. You do not have to worry about giving people a four-course meal, instead, think about side dishes and snacks that can be made in large quantities and still be pretty filling. For example, a pub snack mix might be one of the best options for a St. Paddy’s Day Pub Party. You can find very recipes on Pinterest and Google, but no matter which one you choose, it is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. You can find one of our favs here.
Next, consider putting out french fries, hushpuppies, fried pickles, buffalo wings, or anything else that is easy to grab and reminiscent of the days we could all just enjoy ourselves at the pub on a Saturday night. If you don’t feel up to making all the food, we suggest getting a local restaurant to make it for you. Just place an order a few days ahead, and get it going! You’ll be supporting small businesses, and who doesn’t love that?
Lastly, let’s get to the karaoke part. There is truly nothing like a good karaoke night at a pub. I love karaoke as a social activity more than anything else, yet I never want to sing. I just like to cheer everyone else on and see how the night progresses, like whether or not the singers get better, worse, or stay the same as the night goes on. When I used to go on cruises with my family, I would drag everyone to the karaoke club every night after dinner. Still my favorite thing, and I cannot wait to do it again. Anyways, how fun would it be to dust off that old karaoke machine and get your pub truly pumping. You can sing those classics like Bohemian Rhapsody or Don’t Stop Believin’ to your heart’s desire. No one can stop you either, because it is YOUR pub! Now, go get your supplies and get ready for the most fun St. Patrick’s Day you’ve had yet!
