Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope everyone is wearing sufficient green today.  I love random reasons to dress up or wear something themed, so I am definitely wearing green today.  I pulled out my green earrings too!  I’m not sure if I’ll be having green beverages tonight, since I am going to my sister’s place for dinner, but I’ll see if she has something that will make my drink more festive.

This is a repeat celebration though, as I hosted a kick-off party last weekend for my summer soccer team, and we had a “rainbows and leprechauns” theme in honour of St Patty’s day this week.  I had some fun decorating and making food for the event.

With the help of my step-daughter, we made jello-crusted marshmallows (a Pinterest find) and a rainbow of fruit and veggies.

I found enough pieces of coloured paper in my stash to create some garlands (again with the help of my step-daughter).

And then I found some gold coins in my costume box from when I hosted a pirate party years ago.  They may have had a skull and crossbones on one side, but if you don’t look closely, they can totally be leprechaun gold!  I bought chocolate gold coins too, so part way through the party I had to put away the plastic ones so nobody would get the two confused!

I hope everyone has a great St Patty’s Day!
