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!
