St. Patrick’s Day is slowly creeping up on us! Whether your chapter is planning a St. Patrick’s Day themed sisterhood, social or if you are having a get together with your sisters, CL has some fabulous ideas for your party!
St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect holiday to show your sisters how lucky you are to have them! For a sisterhood, cut out four leaf clovers and ask girls to write why they are lucky to be a member of your sorority. String the clovers together as a banner and hang them up where they can be seen. They serve as a reminder of why everyone feels lucky to be a part of your chapter!
Looking for a game for a St. Patty’s party?
Get the party started by forming teams and going on a scavenger hunt for a pot o’ gold! Divide your sisters up into teams or if it is a social then mix the teams up between guys and girls. Suggest a list of limerick style clues and send them off! This serves as a great icebreaker too.
Give sorority girls an opportunity to make t-shirts and they will jump on it! Have co-eds buy white or green t-shirts to decorate. Shamrock stencils and iron-ons are quick and easy ways to decorate a plain t-shirt to show your St. Patty’s day spirit! Some phrases you can write on the shirts are “Luck o’ the (Sorority Name),” “Lucky to be a (Sorority Greek letters)” and “(Sorority Name) are Pinch Proof.”
Need a simple craft idea? Buy rainbow colored licorice, Skittles, or other rainbow colored candy and gold coins to put in a gift bag. Wrap them up and put a label on the bag that reads, “You’re the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow.”
A cheaper option would be to buy Lucky Charms cereal to place in goodie bags. Put a label on the bag that says “I’m lucky to be your sister!” or “Luck O’ the Irish.” A simple gift always is a great way to brighten a sister’s day!
Looking for recipe ideas for your green party?
Shamrock sugar cookies are easy to make and even fun to decorate. Make the cookies and then have a groups of sisters help you decorate the shamrock cookies with green and white icing or sprinkles!

Spread the luck o’ the Irish by looking out for philanthropic or service events on campus or around the local community that your sisters can attend or participate in. For example, a church in, CL editor Alli’s, hometown always serves a breakfast of green eggs and bacon. A local organization always volunteers to help out them out.
Lastly, don’t be afraid to tap into your inner Irish spirit because everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!
