Kiss me, I'm Irish! Saint Patrick's Day is next week and we're lovin' these ideas from some of our favorite bloggers. Whether you want to plan a full-fledged theme party, are looking for a fun cocktail to toast the occasion with or for a sweet treat to send the kiddies off to school with, we've rounded up our top 5 fave ideas and are sure you'll find the inspiration you're looking for.
Printables make planning a theme party such a breeze and this St. Patty's Day blue and green design is one we like for kids and adults alike. Nellie and her friend Tracie put this shindig together using her own custom designs. Get some of your own off Nellie Designs and pull this party together in a flash!
The easiest way to celebrate St. Pat's is with a cocktail! Sure, you can pour yourself a Guinness or plunk a few drops of green food coloring into a light beer, but c'mon! This day calls for something a little more special. Our go-to concoction? SKITTLE INFUSED VODKA! Taste the rainbow. Thank you for introducing us to these colorful concoctions, Dawn, of Not Just a Mommy!!
And for the younger crowd, nothing says Happy Saint Patrick's Day better than a sugary-treat. We remember when our moms would head to the bakery to pick up a loaf of rye to go with our corn beef dinner, then surprised us with a green cookie topped off with the face of a sugary leprechaun. Imagine the surprise and appreciation you'll get with these desserts?! Kristen! You amaze us with these little treasures! LOVE. Get her how-to off Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.
We love our cupcakes, but we also won't say no to a cookie. Particularly if it's one of Meaghan's from The Decorated Cookie. We're obsessed with her creative designs and delicious recipes, so of course, we had to share these plaid-inspired cookies with you!
And finally, you may not be planning a full-blown celebration, but how great are these centerpieces from Hostess with the Mostess, Jenn? Though flowers would certainly look lovely, we're with Jenn on planting some herbs in these glass mugs. We love them as gifts for neighbors as well.
Happy Saint Patty's Day!
