What to say on a St. Patrick’s Day invitation

An opening line with an Irish proverb or blessing is right on-target for a catchy and well-worded St.Patrick’s Day invitation or greeting card. Follow that with the need-to-know info like the location, date, time, and RSVP request. Slàinte (an Irish version of ‘cheers’) means health and is used when toasting drinks. It can make a great addition to your invitation, as in, “Join us for an evening of love and laughter and slàinte to luck in the future.”
