What Every St. Patrick's Day Party Needs

Julia had more up her sleeve though when she invited Grandma and Grandpa over on Saturday. She welcomed them with a sign: WELCOME TO OUR ST. PATRICK'S DAY PARTY

She served rainbow sprinkle pretzels, rainbow cupcakes
 Irish beef stew, St. Patrick's Day Punch, rainbow goldfish, sour cream & onion potato chips, ham & cheese sandwiches, & I picked up some Irish Amber & some Guinness earlier in the day. Grandma brought a yummy fruit platter to round out our meal.

She just eats up this party planning stuff and she's only five! 

We played hot potato using a Youtube video of Irish Music on my phone. The kids loved this game and it was as simple as heating a potato in the oven for a few minutes and searching for music on youtube.

Then it was time for the scavenger hunt.

The purple shamrock led them to Sam's backpack where they found the pot of gold. I was so proud of Sam for sharing the candy without being prompted. 

By the time the sun set we'd had a wonderful party. Most of the decorations Julia made were indoors but the weather was so warm we ended up spending the evening outside.

I may only have a pinch of Irish blood in me but I sure felt like the luckiest girl in the world by the end of the night!

How did you celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year?
