St Patrick’s Day Picnic

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Green, symbolizing Catholicism, Orange, Protestantism, and White in the center to signify Unity. First unfurled in 1848 the current flag of Ireland was adopted as the national flag in 1921.

Perfect weather with a slight breeze and great homemade food shared with friends and family –  who could ask for a better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

Waving in the breeze, detailed to perfection, a clover garland in the traditional colors of the Irish Flag  was the eye-catching backdrop to our little front yard picnic.  TransparentEsDecorIMG_6262IMG_6279IMG_6266IMG_6242Isabel provided not only the stunning clover garland, but also these adorable double-sided felt table confetti!

I am so in love with these classy paper straws, provided by The Simply Chic Shop. With the numerous  designs available you can dress up any party table!
I only wish I had my camera handy to capture the precious moment of my daughter strolling through the grass, sipping iced tea through her gold heart straw . . . she’s only 18 months,  but looked like such a little lady 🙂  TheSimplyChicShop

Glitter & Tinsel & CakePops, oh my! Aren’t these little spoons just adorable?  They were the fist thing my six year old nephew noticed. “Wow, can I have one of those spoons?” He then proceeded to tuck it safely in his notebook as a “bookmark” to take home. Chocolate CakePops with tinsel toppers were a huge hit with the little ones (and the mamas –  yum!). There isn’t a better way to wrap up lunch than with dessert and a new toy =) RepublicOfParty

We wrapped up the day with these delicious Vegan CakePops. I used the cake recipe from HERE, sprayed and flour dusted the pan, and reduced the cooking time to 20 min. I covered them in melted chocolate and green sprinkles, and they were so moist and simply delicious!
