Green is the color of choice

If you cannot attend the five day festival in Dublin, Ireland, you can still attend the local parades. Enjoy the spectacular sights of local dance troupes, marching bands and themed floats. Encourage your team to get dressed up and be part of the parade themselves. It will make some great snap shots and memories apart from boosting their team pride.

Plan A party at home after office

If you are too busy to plan a party at office or being out in the crowd is not your cup of tea, you can still celebrate St Patrick’s day at home.  Invite a few friends and plan a themed party. Fix a green dress code, order beer in surplus and do not forget those personalized gifts to send home your guests. Think of clover shaped items, beer glasses, glow in the dark pilsner and more. There is a something special for every budget.
