St. Patrick's day is coming soon on March 17th. As a jazz band from Tampa Bay, we've performed at many St. Patty's Day events. With a few modifications there's no reason to abandon this tradition this year. Here's some tips for having a great event:
As weather is nice in the spring typically in Fl, plan your event outside. If yours is a corporate event, consider renting the space outside of a ballroom in a hotel. You could check your guests in in that room and guide them to join the main festivities outside. This way everyone will feel safe and will tend to naturally social distance.
If your event is much less formal, go with a spacious back yard or even in a park. Decorate the tables with green, pots of gold snacks and Leprechauns.
If part of your event will be held inside, consider having St. Patrick's Day masks. This way your guests will be following necessary protocols and still having fun. Here's a link for these:
As is tradition, encourage everyone to wear green. Include the green theme throughout with snacks, cookies and even green ice cream.
If you want to really get your guest's heads to turn, consider creating green beer! Here's how to create it https://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/a26413547/green-beer-st-patricks-day-recipe/
Follow festive decorations and maybe hide a pot of gold for your guests to find.
Stay Safe but remember to also Have Fun!
Happy St. Patty's Day!
