If you’re planning on making corned beef, a traditional staple of St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll need high-quality cookware and we know just who can get the job done: the Dutch oven. This large pot can cook a variety of foods without hassle. Our favorite Dutch oven is this one sold by Made In thanks to its comfortable handles, consistently wonderful cooking and affordability.
Another way to make corned beef — as well as dozens of other delicious dishes — is to use a slow cooker. As the name suggests, the food made in a slow cooker typically takes hours until it’s ready to eat. This means you can throw ingredients in early in the day and go about the rest of your day while the food cooks. It’s the multitasker’s favorite appliance! The best slow cooker we’ve tested is the Cuisinart 6-Quart 3-in-1 Cook Central Multicooker thanks to its handles that make the pot easy to handle when hot, temperature control and ease of cleaning.
Green food coloring
Serving green food is a great way to add a little flair to your St. Patrick’s Day Party. If you don’t want to serve your guests a whole lot of spinach, apples, and grapes, you can use this food coloring to give any food you desire a funky green color. Green eggs and ham, anyone?
After you’ve finished cooking your St. Patrick’s Day dinner, you’ll want a serving platter to make dishing your meal out to your guests easier. Dowan’s oven-safe, ceramic serving platter is one of the highest-rated ones on Amazon, with over 1,200 five-star reviews. Reviewers love the platters because they’re large, affordable, durable, dishwasher safe and stackable. The platters come in a pack of three.
If you’re having a St. Patrick’s Day party, chances are there’ll be drinks, whether of the alcoholic or non-alcoholic variety. The simplest method to get the drinks in your mouth is to drink straight from the tap or bottle. For the more sanitary method that we recommend, use these green Solo cups to tie in with the theme of your party. If you’re looking for something a bit fancier, check out these Guinness pint glasses.
Gatherfun’s party supply pack has everything you’ll need in one order, so you can skip the trip to Party City. Paper plates, paper cups, napkins, tablecloth and a banner are included in the pack, all adorned with shamrocks, leprechaun hats and green designs. If that wasn’t enough, then know that the plates, cups, and napkins come in large quantities, meaning you won’t be at risk of running out of supplies for your guests.
We know St. Patrick’s Day parties can get a little wild, so if you plan on having a rager, party responsibly and make sure there’s an air mattress for anyone who isn’t fit to drive home. Sure, it’s a Sunday, but it’s better to get to work late and safely. This air mattress from SoundAsleep has over 38,000 five-star ratings, with reviewers loving how comfortable it is.
If you’re heading out this St. Patrick’s Day, instead of stuffing your pockets with all your essentials or lugging them around in a purse, you can opt to use a fanny pack. For St. Patrick’s Day, not just any fanny pack will do, which is why we recommend picking up this emerald green, four-leaf clover fanny pack. It even comes with a holder for your drinks! If the design isn’t quite to your liking, there are five others to choose from.
Shamrock home décor
It doesn’t take a lot to give your home some St. Patrick’s Day cheer. These wooden shamrock decorations sold by the Fovths Store can go a long way in making your house more festive for the holiday. They come in a pack of three with different sizes and colors — green, green with black plaid and green with white plaid. These look great on tables, shelves, walls or counters.
Shamrock window decals
Window decals are a fun way to show off your holiday spirit not just to those who enter your home, but to those who pass it. Akerock sells these 109-piece shamrock window decals that are sure to catch the attention of passersby. Reviewers love the decals for their bright colors, their adhesiveness and their double-sided designs.
Who says Christmas is the only holiday when you can decorate with lights? These clover string lights make for an excellent decoration — their green makes for a mesmerizing glow. You can either drape them around objects and furniture in your house or hang them on your window so that they can be seen from the outside.
St. Patrick’s Day Flag
Another way to decorate the exterior of your home is by putting up this St. Patrick’s Day flag on your lawn. This flag by Akeydeco features a simple, cute design that wishes passersby a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. The flag comes with two grommets to affix to a flagpole or sign pole.
Whether you’re heading out or staying in for your St. Patrick’s Day festivities, you won’t want to go without these dress-up accessories. If you’re hosting your own party, they can be used as party favors, while they can help you complete your goofy and jolly look if you’re heading out. The set comes with beaded necklaces, clover glasses, bracelets, green mustaches and temporary tattoos.
If you have young kids around for St. Patrick’s Day, they’ll love these adorable floor stickers in the shape of leprechaun footprints, four-leaf clovers, horseshoes and gold coins. Place the footprints in sequence to create a trail for the kids to track. Where does it lead? What does it mean? You decide.
If you’re looking to add a bit of green to your wardrobe for the occasion, we suggest wearing a nice, flannel shirt. Not only will you look stylish, but you’ll stay warm too, which is crucial if you plan on doing a pub crawl. Alex Vando’s plaid shirt has over 1,8000 five-star reviews, with buyers loving the value as well as the quality fabric.
For even more warmth and style, you can go for this green flannel jacket instead. Mix and match with other St. Patty’s inspired clothes to come up with a knockout look that’s sure to make you the talk of the party. Reviewers love this jacket for its warmth and chicness.
If you want to see if you have Irish heritage somewhere on your family tree, we recommend using AncestryDNA. It’s a great way to delve deeper into your heritage thanks to its extensive records as well as its DNA testing. Perhaps an accurate “kiss me, I’m Irish” apron is in your future.
Claddagh rings, named after a village in Ireland, are traditional Irish rings that are used to symbolize love, loyalty, and friendship. It’s no wonder that they’re often used as friendship and wedding rings. If you’re looking to wear a Claddagh ring of your own for the holiday, check out this one from the Biddy Murphy Store. Reviewers love this ring for its beauty and quality materials.
