5 Essentials For Your St Paddy’s Day Party

Spring is right around the corner and finally getting us out of our winter funk! Over here at The Gift Insider, we love any and every excuse to celebrate holidays (and warm weather) to the fullest. This year, we’re throwing our own St. Patrick’s Day themed party and wanted to share what we found to be 5 crafty DIY essentials to kickstart the perfect day.

Let’s be honest, St. Patrick’s Day is just an excuse for us to all justify spending an entire day drinking and eating with our friends and families. Between the parades, fireworks, and booze-filled festivities; there is no better initiation to the spring season.

The Essentials: 

1. The Perfect Cocktail 

These HoneyDew, Cucumber Mint Mojito’s are the perfect light and crisp cocktail for day drinking.
