St. Patrick's Day Beer Fest & Menu for 30

This weekend we had our third St. Patty's Beer Fest! Austin does the yard and games, I do the cooking and decoration - it's a lot of work but a lot of fun! We used this menu for daytime food. I modified it a bit though to add more food/new recipes. And for nighttime food we did:
Now that I'm typing this up, I may post a modified meal plan with all of the new recipes incorporated.  In the meantime, here's some pics from this year's party:

Hydration station = important for a beer fest!
Love all of the green!
Me & the food!
More food! Added 3 new dishes to the Mediterranean menu!
This is still one of my favorite recipes - love these little crostinis!
outdoor foosball = good idea
and what's a party without cornhole?
Most of us girls stayed in the shade! 
Great to see Shana & Sharon!!
Andy won best beer, and Teresa won worst! :)
Beer station = just as important as hydration station!
Fun shot - this is where the pups chilled and sun bathed!
That is when they weren't flocking to Karly - they were LOVING sitting on her preggo belly! it was SO DANG CUTE!
Loved all of the green! The buckets and linens from Austin's birthday last year came in handy - we even painted the keg trash can green. hehe
Such a pretty day to be outside!
Great to see Jamie! It had been too long!
Always fun to hang out with the Blancos!!
And these ladies!!
And these guys! Yes, it got late!
