Fun and Festive St. Patrick’s Day Programs and Gifts

St. Patrick’s Day is the luckiest day of the year! It’s a day full of wearing green, enjoying themed foods and drinks, and celebrating the luck o’ the Irish. This St. Patrick’s Day, multifamily property teams can spend time putting on St. Patrick’s Day programs for their residents to celebrate.


Ready to hit the jackpot with your residents? Check out the following ideas to see how you can celebrate with them.


  • Shamrock Cookie Decorating
    • A classic and easy St. Patrick’s Day dessert is to decorate shamrock shaped cookies! On-site teams can host a cookie decorating contest where various frosting and sprinkle options are offered for residents to use. If people aren’t comfortable attending an event, you can offer Patrick’s Day gift bags with shamrock sugar cookies and green frosting they can enjoy in the comfort of their own home. Either way, be sure to encourage them to share photos on social media to boost community involvement.
  • Watch a Holiday Inspired Movie
  • Learn Irish Dancing
    • If you’re in search of a more active Patrick’s Day program, Irish dancing could be a great choice. You can find a space on your multifamily property to host an Irish dance lesson for residents to join in on. After the lesson, you can treat participants to easy St. Patrick’s Day desserts and refreshments.
  • Serve Shamrock Shakes
    • A Patrick’s Day gift basket idea is to give a shamrock shake starter set! For the basket, you can gift mini coolers and have residents retrieve their gift from the leasing office to ensure ingredients stay fresh. You can include recipes for how to make a shamrock shake and give the proper ingredients including ice cream, green food coloring, and mint extract.


If you can’t put on a full program, other fun ways to stay festive are to decorate the leasing office or resident hallways. Whether you go all out with a dance class or enjoy  some sweet treats, you can bring luck and cheer to multifamily residents this St. Patrick’s Day.
