How did you spend your St. Patricks Day?

So my lucky duck boys got to spend their Spring Break in Florida with Nana & Papa. They came back on the night of St. Patricks day - and I figured after Florida... how could I compete with that??? I left work early and hit the store - trying to come up with any fun green ideas I could as fast and cheap as possible - while still putting together a real meal... Let the Montage begin...
Green Mini Pizza's: I bought Grands Jr's... Squished them out... sponged them with green food coloring... Baked them for about 5 minuts... topped them with their favorite pizza toppings and then baked for about another 7 minutes.

Sugar Free Cupcake Mix - Green Food Coloring - White Frosting - Green Sprinkles. 
Instant festive treats that were the highlight of the night :)

A little green Pizza for Ms. Rozzlyn & some pears on her favorite green sectioned Nuby plate.

The boys had their green pizza - some Green pouches of applesauce - on green plates... with some green strawberry kiwi natural sparkling water.  (They thought their "soda" was SOOOOO cool and little did they know it had none of the usual junk soda does.)

And they each got a goodie bag full of random green treats... I gotta say - I hit this holiday out of the park... they were SO SO happy with their surprise St. Patrick's Day "party".

  1. Those were really cool ideas! Great job, mama!

    I made some cupcakes for St Patrick's too, but they were not very kid friendly, since they had Guinness and Baileys in them!
