Apart from the actual partying, the best part of planning a fun St. Patrick’s Day party is nailing down the festive details — like party favors and maybe a few of those green cocktails. You can whip up some leprechaun-approved treats like these St. Patrick’s Day-themed rainbow donuts too, but they won’t hold a candle to the fun favors on this list. We’re talking sweet rainbow favors, gilded shamrock coasters and plenty of fun accessories like cheeky beer socks and adorable temporary tatts. Pick one (or five) to add a little more luck to your St. Patrick’s Day party.
