Everything You Need To Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

I couldn’t let St. Patrick’s Day come and go with little more than just a post on wreath decor.  After all, I married into an Irish family so I can hardly get away with it.  So now I am going to share some more decor, crafts and even some tasty treats that you can enjoy for the upcoming holiday.

In fact, I’m just going to start right out with those crafty treats from the kitchen!  They are the very best part of any holiday.

Here are a few of my favorite finds:

I’m starting right off with a hum dinger!  This cupcake recipe by The Brown Eyed Baker includes three types of alcohol and is called The Irish Car Bomb.  It looks delicious but pretty potent – in true Irish fashion.   Try this if you dare!

A safer cupcake treat to try, that is also kid friendly, would be this recipe by Hello Cupcake Book called Kissin The Blarney Stone.  What a fun way to celebrate the luck of the Irish!

Now on to some other types of crafts:

This fun subway art by Eighteen 25 is a quick and easy way to get some holiday decor.  You could just type out your words in a word document, select fun fonts and a great green color, and print it off for your size frame.

I like subtle and sometimes just adding a little green is all you need to get into the spirit of the holiday.  This simple idea from Better Homes and Gardens uses a green ribbon wrapped around a candle and secured with ball straight pins.

I also like this candle centerpiece idea by Two Twenty-One.  I love the shade of green the split peas give!

First of all, I love this St. Patrick’s Day banner and the fact that it is made from book pages.  However, I also am in love with that old hinged door that it is hanging from!  The banner was made by Rebecca Cooper and you can check out her blog for her full tutorial.

And, I end with this perfectly rustic, twigs and cabbage St. Patrick’s Day table-scape by Designs By Gollum…….aaaah.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
