Maybe you don’t get off work for it, but Saint Patrick’s day is one of our favorite holidays. Color coordination, time with friends, an excuse to throw a good party—what’s not to like? If you’re planning on jumping in to the festivities, For Your Party has you covered with custom Saint Patrick’s Day party accessories.
The Stories Behind the Tradition
Originally commemorating the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the first Saint Patrick’s Day parade in the United States took place in 1601. As Irish immigration and patriotism increased, so did the celebrations. Boston’s first celebration took place in 1737, New York’s in 1762, and no one has looked back since! Those parades evolved into the gatherings we know and love today, with green everything, corned beef, beer, and cheer. Eating corned beef and soda bread make sense—they’re classic Irish-American foods, after all. And, well, the beer is self explanatory. As for the green, it depends on who you ask. Some say it’s a symbol of Irish nationalism, since it’s the color of the Shamrock. Others say it’s because green makes wearers invisible to pinch-happy leprechauns. As for us, we’re suckers for color coordination, so count us in!
Create Customized Cups with For Your Party
Drinks, alcoholic and otherwise, are a Saint Patrick’s day staple. So, if you’re hosting, cups are a natural choice for custom Saint Patrick’s Day party accessories, and we have you covered! Our cups come in a wide variety of sizes, from shot glasses to 32 ounces, for you to select based on your drink of choice! Naturally, you’ll be able to keep it green, but we also recommend a clear cup, the better to show off whatever your green drink of choice is on the big day. Of course, nothing goes with some personalized cups like custom coasters.
Don’t Forget the (Green) Napkins
