I've already talked about the St. Patty's Tablescape, the Rainbow Felt Garland, and the Kiss Me I'm Irish Painting. Here are the other two decor projects I finished just in time for the big St. Patrick's Play Date at my house today from which I am extremely pooped.
The first is this I *heart* Shamrocks banner from My Computer Is My Canvas's Etsy shop.
|The listing actually came with the entire alphabet and several different St. Patrick's Day themed clip art like a rainbow, leprechaun, etc. So the decorating possibilities are many with this listing.|
|I ended up putting a painted wooden shamrock from Hobby Lobby in that blank space above the banner.|
|Instead of wasting ink at my house, I spent $10 and had the sign printed on white cardstock at Staples. I need to do that more often.|
The second project was the rainbow baskets full of "gold." I saw several versions of this in the past month on various blogs, but the first I saw was from Make and Takes blog.
|I used hot glue and white pipe cleaners cut in half on the ends of the rainbow to attach it to the basket handles. Then I stuffed the bottom of the basket with green tissue paper and filled it with Rolos. Any gold wrapped candy would do.|
|10 baskets in all their glory. Oh, and those are just glitter shamrock stickers that were 60% off!|
|Lime-Pineapple Punch: I put only half the amount of carbonated drink in there. Moms could choose to either add champagne (what a hard life!) or more key lime soda. I took lots of pics of the fun themed food that the moms brought with a random camera that was laying around. Hope the mom will post them on FB.|

|Too much champagne in your punch, Mom? (Just kidding...Only 1/2 a bottle was gone after 4 hours and 9 or 10 mommies. We talk a big game.)|
