We want to make sure that you have the most fun as possible when you head to your local St. Patrick’s Day Parade so we have compiled a list of items for you to bring to ensure that you have a blast shaking your shamrocks this March 17th!
First on the list – food of course!
These Shamrock Pretzel Bites are the perfect treat for you to bring with you to the parade – they’re festive, fun, affordable, portable and easy to make (click the link for the full recipe)!
All you have to do is place an unwrapped Hershey Kiss on top of each of the pretzels, bake them for 7 minutes at 200 degrees and when they’re finished, pull them out and place 3 green M&M candies on top of the melted chocolate right away. Once it cools, create the shamrocks’ stems by adding a line of green frosting to each of the pretzels and there you have it – the perfect St. Patrick’s Day Parade Snack!
Both adults and kids will love popping these while they watch the bagpipers and Irish dancers go by.
You’ll need something to wash down the Shamrock Pretzel Bites so be sure to bring a cooler of water, pop, beer and/or whatever drinks you’d like. Just make sure to stay in tune with the St. Patrick’s Day theme by wrapping them in the Irish Flag or the Irish Pride Personalized Can & Bottle Wraps. The wraps feature Velcro tabs for easy closing and removal plus rubber lining for a secure and snug fit. You’ll be able to keep your drinks cold, your hands warm and since you can personalize them with any name, hopefully you’ll be able to keep other people’s hands off your drink! You can create one for the kids to use for their pop and create one for the adults to wrap around their Guinness for this year’s parade and for many more to come.
If you or some of the other adults prefer to enjoy Irish whisky or stronger spirits on St. Patrick’s Day, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! The Irish Cheer Personalized Pocket Flask will carry up to 8 fluid ounces of your favorite beverage so you stay warm at the parade and so you can toast your Irish heritage in style! The stainless steel flask is delicately hand etched with any name above the traditional shamrock design on the front for a distinguished Irish look. It even comes with a funnel so you don’t waste a drop! This is another St. Patrick’s Day accessory that you’ll be able to enjoy year after year. The flask and the can wraps also make a great gift idea for the host or hostess of the after party you go to after the parade.
Depending on what part of the country you’re from, it may be a little chilly on March 17th so you’ll want to make sure you customize your own Irish Pride Personalized Sweatshirt Blanket to keep you and your family warm as you wait for the parade to start. The super soft and comfortable, heathered grey jersey fleece features a simple but bold Irish design that can be personalized with any family or team name. Head over to the parade location early and use the blanket as a space saver to secure your favorite location to watch from – since the blanket displays your name proudly everyone will know which area is “your spot.”
If you check out PMall’s St. Patrick’s Day Gifts Store, you’re sure to find even more awesome parade party accessories. We recommend personalizing a t-shirt or some kind of clothing, like the popular Irish Pride Personalized Apparel, for everyone in your group (even babies!) so everyone in the parade will be excited to walk by your fun section. Don’t let your dog feel left out – they can show off their Irish pride too with the Lucky Dog Personalized Dog Bandana!
With all of these awesome parade accessories your group is sure to stand out from the crowd and have the time of their lives. You’ll be having so much fun you’ll want to make sure you remember this fun holiday forever, which you can do with the Let the Shenanigans Begin Personalized Picture Frame. You can personalize this frame (or one of the other Irish frames in The Irish Home Gifts Department), with the name of the parade, the year, your family names or anything else you’d like to include in the 3-line message so you can look back and remember all the fun you had with your family and friends.
Make sure to stay safe while you’re having all that fun this St. Patrick’s Day – and don’t forget to take advantage of our St. Patrick’s Day Gifts Sale before it ends Sunday.
