Although toasting this popular March holiday with a pint of green beer won’t fly in many workplaces, decorating your workplace, dressing in green and munching on some Irish-themed food can have your party hopping like a leprechaun! Who say’s you can’t celebrate this holiday in your in Olathe, Overland Park, Westport, Independence or Kansas City? With Joe Joes’s Catering and these fun ideas from ehow.com, your office party will be a hit!
Decoration for St. Patrick’s Day
- A few strategically placed green items around your workplace can transform an ordinary-looking office into one ready for St. Patrick’s Day. Green streamers and balloons and shamrock cardboard cutouts placed on walls, hanging from doorways and attached to windows boost the office’s fun atmosphere. A green cauldron-style pot, filled with gold-wrapped chocolate coins, gives employees and visitors alike a holiday-themed treat upon entering the office. St. Patrick’s Day decorations are prolific in March at dollar stores and big-box stores.
Wearing Green Attire
- Dressing in green is a simple way that people in your office can get in the St. Patrick’s Day mood. Encourage your colleagues to wear bright green shirts and buy a handful of green plastic fedoras to augment each person’s attire. Shamrock lapel pins, gold-coin necklaces and even some basic St. Patrick’s Day-themed face painting can add to the festive atmosphere. At lunch, hold a costume contest and vote for the person with the most spirit.
Festive Irish Music
- Boost the St. Patrick’s Day cheer of your lunchtime get-together with some traditional or contemporary Irish music. Groups such as the Irish Rovers, Celtic Thunder, the Clancy Brothers and the Irish Tenors can provide the soundtrack to your buffet and costume party.
Tasty Irish-Themed Luncheon
- A St. Patrick’s Day party at work gives your colleagues a chance to sample some Irish food. And what food is more Irish than potatoes? Cater your St. Patrick’s Day office party with a baked potato bar from Joe Joe’s Catering and enjoy the classic food that the Irish have been eating for centuries!
