I can’t keep calm. I’m Irish!
Saint Patrick, the fifth-century apostle, is rightly celebrated on this, the 17th day of March, with mass and, um, snakes, I think? I’m a little rusty on my fifth-century Catholic history, tbh. But, let’s be real: our modern take on St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of the Irish culture of welcoming and brotherhood, which is something we can all get into. Whether you’re a green beer-swigging, leprechaun costume-wearing, jig dancing St. Patty’s booster or simply taking the opportunity to have a beer and cheers, Picnic Time has got the goods to take your celebration from meh to mehrvelous.*
Spring has definitely sprung – so why not take your St. Patrick’s celebration on the road? The Insulated Double Growler Tote carries two full size 64 oz. growlers while looking majorly stylish in green khaki waxed canvas with leatherette accents. You may be far from the Emerald Isle, but you can still fill up at your favorite brewery and enjoy the finest suds after a jaunty stroll. Need the growlers? We’ve got those too – in glass or stainless steel.
While some may settle for the traditional whiskey in a jar, we’d much prefer to sing the song and enjoy the actual whiskey in a much more upscale fashion. The Whiskey Box with Decanter Gift Set looks beautiful on the mantle all year long and elevates your whiskey enjoyment every time you bust it out. Two 8-oz. heavy bottom lowball glasses, two sandstone coasters, one 750mL glass decanter, and six soapstone whiskey stones are sure to get your Irish eyes a-smilin.
Set Your Mind at Cheese
The beer, the whiskey, and the oversized novelty green sunglass may be the most visible ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s day, but no self-respecting Irish celebration can go forward without sharp cheddar centerstage. Whether you’re serving at home or at a picnic, we offer a variety of cheese and charcuterie boards with cheese tools included – like the Insignia Acacia and Slate Serving Board with Cheese Tools, pictured here, in acacia wood and gold titanium-coated stainless steel.
Now that you’ve got your beer, whiskey, and cheese service sorted, you’re all set to chug, sip, chomp, and sing your way through a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day. Sláinte!
