pineapple54:  Tea could work, although I think most American’s might see that as more British than Irish. (Assuming you’re American because St Pat’s isn’t that big a deal anywhere else.) What about an Irish Breakfast? You could do it at brunch-time, and it’s WAY more appetizing (to me at least) than Irish lunch or dinner. Or you could say who cares what people think, and have a tea party. I just googled “irish tea traditions” and lots of interesting stuff showed up. Sounds like fun and probably more shower-like than breakfast/brunch. Good luck!

I’m a proud Irish lady and I can honestly say that the only Irish food that doesn’t suck is soda bread. Love that stuff. LOVE IT.

pineapple54:  Are you looking for a true Irish hertiage inspired shower? Is the bride or groom from Ireland? Or are you looking for an American St. Patricks Day theme… these are VERY different.

I second the Irish Breakfast theme becuase I am a HUGE fan of Irish Breakfasts (totally biased since I’ve been eating them since forever) and pretty much everyone likes brunch, right? haha

But if brunch wasn’t her thing, you could just stick to festive desserts and have them displayed throughout the event – like cupcakes wtih green icing and pots of gold on them or something.  You could display them on a cupcake tree on a cake table or on a long table surrounded by shamrock cookies, brownies with green icing, etc.  That way they act as decor for most of the party and you can serve normal food just with irish decorations.  And maybe soda bread instead of rolls or something haha

BrideK2Wings:  I was just about to ask the same thing! Definitely something the OP should think about.

In Ireland and the UK it would be called a ‘Hen Shower’ and the bachelorette party is a ‘Hen-do’. There’s a lot of fun ideas that you can find by searching that :].

As an Irish girl I can only recommend booze and finger food, at least that’s what I would normally see at an Irish do!! But that doesn’t really have an Irish vibe as such, so you can just add green and gold decor, and try and give off the Irish theme that way! Baby Guinness shots are yum and very popular amongst my friends and much tastier than an actual pint of Guinness!
