Show: The Today Show
Date: March 12, 2012
Guest: Mark Addison
On the March 12 episode of the today show, entertaining expert Mark Addison was on to give some great ideas on throwing a great Shamrock Shindig with a “Luck O’ The Irish Party”. (This party IS pretty Genius!)
This party combines four lucky Irish traditions for board-game like fun.
Tradition 1 – Blarney Stones
A walkway with cute Irish sayings leads your guests around the party.
Tradition 2 – Wearing Green
Prepared gift bags for guests have green attire in them, like ribbons, hats and beads to wear. Mark suggests a Leprechaun theme for guys and a Fairy theme for gals.
Tradition 3 – Four Leaf Clovers
Next up is a “field” of four leaf clovers…. or at least treats that look like four lead clovers! A wheatgrass field, showcases treats like whoopee pies and green popcorn.
Tradition 4 – End of the Rainbow
Lead your guests to the end of the rainbow where a Pot O’ Gold bar awaits them. Lucky Irish Champagne cocktails made with elderflower liqueur (yum) Lucky Leprechaun cocktail with Midori and Malibu.
