4 Things Helpful (St. Patrick's Day Version)

via Inspired by This
Despite our Irish heritage, my family has never made a big deal about St. Patrick's Day. This year is the first that my Irish Nana is living with us, and she's distraught that corned beef and cabbage will not be happening on Tuesday (we have other commitments). So I guess my family is the St. Patrick's Day version of Grinches. I did make my cocktail of the month using Guinness, and I attempted Irish shortbread, but if I had more energy and enthusiasm for the holiday, the following are a few things I would love to try.


Decorate like Landeelu - - - I love how these are festive, but look tasteful and not cheesy.
Party with these - - - Forget what I said about food coloring, the various shades of green in these shots are way too cute. Love the look, but use a better recipe.
Dress your table like Inspired by This - - -  What worked for a baby shower for them works as a chic St. Patty's Day tablescape for me.
Eat these like Lady and the Blog - - - Perfect fit for the holiday and made without added food coloring.


What cute St. Patrick's Day ideas do you want to try?

  5. These are really cute ideas!

    I'm never one to go over the top for any holiday, but I think the "little touches" are key.

  10. I love green! And I think green decorations and pieces on the table and around the house are enough to create a celebration atmosphere.
