St. Patrick's Day Parade Essentials

This past weekend was the Hartford St. Patrick's Day parade aka one of my favorite days of the year.

We've lived in Hartford for the last 5 years and we've had a party every year.. {cue crappy phone photo montage}

2012 - my apartment with one of my girlfriends overlooked the end of the parade route

Although this isn't the friend I lived with..

2013 - first year at the building we live in now, I think I was a few years late on the popularity of ombré hair but I do love this picture.

2014 - feel free to admire the photoshopping of my "fist".  I was clearly pretty pumped about being Irish.

2015 - really upped my accessories game

And this year.. 2016 - upgraded to a bigger mustache

Pretty amazing right?

So we're basically professionals. Ok, ok! I'll tell you how to throw a baller St. Paddy's Party.

Stuff you need:

  1. A 7ft tall beer bottle cardboard cut out
  2. Green mustaches
  3. So. Many. Garlands.
  4. All the Irish alcoholic beverages
  5. Snacks
  6. Festive hand towels
  7. Something awesome to drink out of
  8. Accessories 
  9. Gold balloons
  10. Drunk friends

No big deal. Anyone could do it.


  1. Everybody needs drunk friends... all the time! Such fun photos of one of my favorite days!

  2. oh my word. we need to party together one st paddy's day. which might be hard because it is one of the only things i like that louisville does, so i can't leave, and i can't be in two places at once. that photoshop of your fist! hahahahahahaa. i need green mustaches! where on earth do you get them? i seriously need it for next year.

  3. 5 years of st. patty's photos is impressive! you look like you're having so much fun! your list is hilarious, festive hand towels for the win!
