St Patrick’s Day Party

18 Mar

We were in charge of throwing the St Patrick’s Day Party at our office this past Friday. 150 employees and a limited budget, so we had to get creative.

Guess How Many - St Patrick's DayTo drum up some excitement during the week, we created a “Guess How Many” game with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. The items included rolos, skittles separated by color and placed in the color of a rainbow, and marshmallows. This jar was placed on the front desk and each employee got one guess. Whoever guessed the closest won the jar!


We had live music by a very talented son of an employee.Cornhold and Cabbage sign {St Patrick's Day Cornhole Game}C&C

We had our first annual cornhole tournament which we named “CORNHOLE AND CABBAGE.” It was great to have an activity for everyone to do and people really got into it. There were 4 rounds and towards the end everyone was crowded around cheering for their coworkers.St Patrick's Day Prizes {Kisses, Skittles, St Patrick's Day themed scratch off ticket, flag, and green gift card} We had prizes for the top 3 winners of the cornhole tournament and also prizes for the best St. Patrick’s Day outfit. The prizes were green cups purchased from the dollar store filled with kisses, skittles, a St Patty’s Day themed scratch of ticket, an Irish flag, and a gift card. The gift cards were either for Publix and Starbucks because they are both green.DSCN3407

The photobooth was a lot of fun! Some props were purchased like the boa and glasses and then we made the sticks using free printables from here. The customizable “Photobooth” sign was also a free printable found here. We pinned a St Patrick’s Day themed table-cloth to the wall and had an instant DIY photobooth.

We had a few snacks like chips and guacamole {going with the green theme} and cupcakes and cookies with green and white icing and shamrock sprinkles. The beverages included wine and of course GREEN BEER!

The party was a huge hit and didn’t break the bank. The decorations were simple, but balloons and streamers go a long way. The point of the party was to get the employees together and the cornhole game was a great activity that got everyone involved.

Hope you all had a very happy St Patrick’s Day!
