St. Patrick’s Day Tea Party- Menu And Food Ideas

It’s no secret that we love tea parties, and will throw one for nearly any occasion, so it’s no shocker that we like to have them for St. Patrick’s day! You can find all of our liturgical tea parties here, along with my tips for making tea parties extra fun for kids!

I love tea parties because they can be as simple or as complicated as you want, and you can do them with a very small group- even just your own kids. We always have ours as lunch.

On The Menu: Cute Food Ideas For St. Patrick’s Day

Make some shamrocks!

(And when I say shamrocks, I mean shamrocks– not 4 leaf clovers. St. Patrick was teaching about the Holy Trinity, not good luck or leprechauns.) We had some shamrock jello jigglers, which were displayed with our St. Patrick ped doll.

We also had some shamrock pretzel treats, made with pretzels, a rolo, and a green M&M.

Make meringue cookies, dye them green, and pipe them in the shape of shamrocks in honor of the trinity. My full directions for this are on Catholic Digest.

I have also made shamrock pinwheels with cream cheese, parsley, and green tortillas. You can find my full directions on Catholic Digest.

Make a miter and crosier

Check out how easy it is to cut a miter out of a green apple slice! For extra fun, you can make crosiers out of pie crust sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. My full directions and recipe for these are on Catholic Digest.

Or make some simple miter cookies using your candy cane cookie cutter. Don’t forget to color your sugar cookie dough green first! 😉

Or make some actual St. Patrick cookies! These are simple to make and decorate, and best of all, they don’t require a specialized cookie cutter. Find my full directions for these on Catholic Digest.

  1. Lacy, this isn’t a tea party, this is a feast! 🙂 Such wonderful ideas – especially the miter and crosier. I bet you could even make the crosier out of pancake mix and (with a squeeze bottle) shape it in the pan. Wishing you and yours a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day this week!

  2. What a great party and ideas. Congratulations on a festive March 17th.

  3. Lacy,
    You have the most wonderful and fun ideas. Thank you for sharing with the rest of us. I love checking your site for inspiration. God Bless.
    Wishing a Blessed Holy Week,

  4. Lacy,
    Here’s a crazy question, but where did you find the shamrock table cloth? Cannot find one; thinking of having to sew one myself. TIA

  5. The link for the St. Patrick cookies (last item) seems to be broken. Could you fix please?
