sláinte!

sláinte – “Translating to ‘Good Health’ in English, sláinte [SLAHN-chə] is an Irish saying that derives from the Old Irish word slán, meaning “healthy” or “safe”.”

St. Patrick’s Day is upon us! I am a very Irish human, and St. Patrick’s Day was always a holiday my family went above and  beyond to celebrate! From decorations to the food, AND the fact that it is my parents wedding anniversary…truly a great day. So I figured I had to give y’all a good chunk of fun ideas for all ages! Especially if you are like me and can’t believe it is already almost March 17th and are a tad behind in your planning.

FOOD : 

Well we must start with the traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal … so here are a few links of a variety of ways to make yours! Or ask an elder family member, they’ll know. links to the recipe and details are below each pic!

DECORATIONS : 

Tons of INSPO in these next few pics! I love simple, cheap, DIY ideas for holidays. For me I don’t always like reusing the same decorations year to year, so if you make it an easy update on both your time and budget, switching it up every year is totally doable!

 

FOR THE KIDS! :

And even more inspo here! holidays are so much better with kids, agreed??
