Well, we’re feeling the same, which is why we’ll be throwing a Pot of Gold Party. Here are the 9 essentials that will be adorning our space come St. Patrick’s Day that are so chic and cool that you might start pinching your guests if they don’t show up in something gold.

Most party stores should have them available, or you can always order online at Amazon.
