Irish Dinner Party Ideas and Invitations

Welcome to my Irish Dinner Party Ideas. Here you will find ideas from start to finish for an Irish dinner, including the invites. These ideas will be both vegetarian and non-alcoholic.

For an appetizer and or as a side, you can have broccoli sticks (the outer layer of the stalks removed), celery sticks, and or asparagus spears. You can also use the broccoli florets or save them for the stew. A nice dill dip will go very well with these.

As a side, you can have boiled potatoes with cabbage. The cabbage will help to flavor the potatoes nicely. If you want some extra flavor, you can toss in some diced mushrooms and your preferred seasonings. The cows get to stay home on this one. This would go very well with vegetarian chicken patties which can be the main course.

For another main course option, you could make a vegetable stew. Be sure to add some green such as broccoli, brussel sprouts, green onion, peas, etc. Portabella mushrooms work great to amp up the flavoring for a more hearty vegetarian stew. If you like bread, you can make some Irish soda bread to go with the stew.

For dessert, I recommend a yellow or butter cake, with a bit of green food coloring, and flavored with mint. Yumm.

For the beverage, you could have green tea (without it being green.) Choose decaf or regular, depending on your preference.

That should be enough for a healthy meal where everyone can have enough to eat and still feel healthy afterwards.

The invites are easily customized online, with your specific details.

The RSVP on these shamrock stamps will let your guests know that you'd like a response. If so, be sure to include the how to contact on the invites. If not, just click on Customize It, and then backspace through the RSVP in the text field.

If you want paper plates for easy clean up, you can choose from seven and nine inch sizes.
