A St Patty's Party

let me begin this post with a note of thanks to all the talented bloggers who share there talents and ideas. i found some great ideas for nolan's st patricks day/birthday party.
i thought i'd share some with you.

i found the rainbow cupcake idea over at running with glitter. they were super cute. i have two suggestions, make sure you use white liners so that you can see the rainbow and when layering, be sure that you use only a teaspoon of each color and be sure to add each layer to the edge of the muffin cup rather than the center. this way each color shows up really well on the outside of the cupcake.
the cute tags were found thru how does she. they have great links, as well as, some great deals.
oops, i ran out of time to make my cookies, so i went with store bought. not as good, but cute. the cake stand is from home goods. i love the interchangeable ribbons.
these labels are from the same place that i found the tags. it came as a grouping, along with the flags below.

the leprechaun pie was a hit. i got the idea from this blog
when masyn got home from school she was all excited about the mishaps that took place at school due to a naughty leprechaun. i ran with it and told her that the same thing happened at home. i had bought a couple bags of chocolate coins and when i went to get them the coins were all gone but the bags were left. later in the evening as everyone was devouring the leprechaun pie, she was the first to discover that the chocolate coins had been put in the pudding cups!!! that CRAZY leprechaun! he even left a poem...crazy!
the banner below was an idea of the tomkat studio that was featured on hgtv along with the cute shirt that i made for masyn in the previous post.
and those crafting chicks had the free downloads for this super cute leprechaun treasure hunt.
and these are not evyn's footprints, the crafting chicks give you a fun way to make your own tiny footprints. i used tempura paint on the tile and it washed up super easy.
i hope you bookmark some of these and have yourself a great st paticks day next year. and if you live nearby, your invited to next years party!

Wow Julie! It looks like you had an awesome party! I love all of your special touches -- I'll bet the kids were thrilled. Cute little foot prints too -- we used to make those when we were little!
