“We focused on kid friendly desserts and party favors for our table. Hannah made a 3 tier green ombre shamrock cake out of a heart cookie cutter and using the left over scraps created the stem. She also came up with the fun idea for green Hostess ding dongs- which turned out so adorable. Her pot of gold sugar cookies were topped with gold shimmery sprinkles. I made cupcakes in 3 colors of green and we decked them out with colored candy and gold coins. For the light green cupcakes I made felt bow tie cake toppers which were inexpensive and easy to make!

I used free printables for every graphic on the table. The “LUCKY” sign on the front of the table was a free download from The TomKat Studio via HGTV. I sprayed it with gold glitter and backed it with a rainbow fabric that was going the opposite way of the rainbow table cloth- so it really popped! The square chevron labels on the coloring buckets are courtesy of another free printable from Dimpleprints. The “You’re my Lucky Charm” mini banner on the “leprechaun trail mix” is a free printable from Kara’s Party Ideas, I shrunk it down to meet my needs. For the mini buckets I spray painted them gold and printed out St. Patrick’s Day coloring pages online and made little mini coloring books for the kids. I put rainbow colored crayons on the front of the buckets and tied them on with twine. I topped almost everything off with light and dark green stacked shamrock foam stickers found in March at every craft store for $1 a pack. I even decorated the green soda bottles with free printables from Love The Day. The leprechaun trail mix were put inside large ketchup cups found at most $1 stores. I used rainbow ribbon to create a rainbow above the trail mix and good ol’ cotton balls for the clouds on the sides- the kids loved these!

The mason jars had green colored milk inside and were dipped in a lighter green melting chocolate and then rolled in sugar sprinkles. We baked mini green cupcakes and put them through our green paper straws and topped them off with a leprechaun Lucky Charm marshmallow or a rainbow one- another hit with the kids! The push pops were made with a new mini push pop pan I purchased which made them a lot easier to make then slicing mini cupcakes. I was able to fit all over the colors of the rainbow in this way because of how thin they were. We topped them off with a shamrock clad rolo!

The green shamrock chocolate pops were made with a shamrock candy mold. We painted edible gold shimmer on each of them and I put the rainbow ribbon flag on each with a little wire sandwiched in between so I could make them “wavey”. Surrounding the shamrock pops were our jello mugs! Hannah and I joked about finding mini beer jugs to put green (non-alcoholic!) jello in and sure enough a day later Hannah found them.

The kids had a blast and we’re all still recovering from a day of desserts!”
