Because St. Patrick's Day is in March, Alicia is sharing recipes from Ireland with us this month. Yesterday she shared this delicious Bacon and Cabbage Pot Pie. She forgot to mention in her post that when my husband and I did our DNA tests, he found out that he is 38% Irish! So, while St. Patrick's Day has always been one of those holidays we have given a fun nod to by having green milk at breakfast, wearing green and eating Corned Beef and Cabbage and maybe the occasional shamrock shaped sugar cookie, we now feel that perhaps we can add a little more to the fun of what we can now consider part of our family heritage, ha ha!
Madalynn and I came up with a couple of fun printables to decorate the house with. We worked on them independently, but it is funny that we both came up with kind of tongue in cheek ideas that go with the idea of being pinched if you aren't wearing green!
My idea involves an owl, of course.
You can print off this little owl print today by clicking the button below.
Madalynn's printable is more direct! Ha Ha! I love it! This one we are putting up for our subscribers, so go to your subscriber's printable link. What? You haven't subscribed? Then go to the top of the page and do it now! There are a lot of printables on that link just for you.
We showed how to frame interchangeable printables on this post. I keep adding to my collection.
Next, I thought my grandchildren would get a kick out of some little shamrock mints. They helped me put the little decorative pearls on them, and it was so hard for them to wait for the mints to dry and be ready to eat!
I used my Wilton Cookie Press to make these St. Patrick's Day Mints, so they were so simple to form. I am happy that I have found another use for my Cookie Press besides using it for Spritz Cookies!
If you are planning a party for St. Patrick's Day, Alicia had some great ideas that she shared last year! Check out this post and see!
So there you go! Some simple ways to add a little fun to your St. Patrick's Day! Watch for more recipes from Alicia this month as well! Whether you are celebrating your Irish heritage or just enjoying the St. Patrick's Day tradition, we hope you have a ton of fun!
