Last Minute St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  What a wonderful holiday where we all wear green and pinch people who aren’t wearing green.  What a great day!

What???  You didn’t realize today was St. Patrick’s Day???  Well…here are some last minute ideas that you can pull together to still celebrate with the rest of us!

-For breakfast eat green eggs and ham!  You could also have some green milk to finish off the meal.

-Now onto to what to wear.  Obviously green.  But, you could also spruce up your outfit by wearing these adorable shamrock hairbows or the headband.

-You know what else you can do?  Paint your nails super festively.  I recently painted my nails gold with gold sparkles on top to be like the pot of gold.  Of course you could do green with shamrocks, or something of the sort.

-Want something fun to do?  How about some St. Patrick’s Day Mad Libs!  You can find some really cute ones by just searching for them on Google.

-And finally, what about something really sweet for desert?  How about McDonald’s Shamrock Shake?  If you like mint ice cream, then you will love this milk shake.  But it is only available through today, March 17th.  So get it today if you want it!

I hope this helps you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  This is something short and sweet and really easy to complete!

99 Cent Store St. Patrick’s Day

Hello everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed our Facebook Live last Friday!  If you missed it, you can check it out on Hometalk’s Facebook!

Also, I know what you are thinking.  ‘Lauren, you did a 99 Cent Store Valentine’s Day, why are you now doing St. Patrick’s Day?’  Well, first of all, it’s the 99 Cent Store, what can go wrong?  And second of all, everything is only 99 cents, so you can buy tons of stuff!

So, of course with Valentine’s over, the next special holiday is St. Patrick’s Day!  Or, Easter if you don’t really care about St. Patrick’s Day.  But, this holiday is perfect for Decorating with the Pantone Color of the Year: Green!

Naturally, I bought two garlands that were green with shamrocks.  They look really cute all wound around the ends of the bookshelf.  And of course, the cats were soooooooo helpful while I was trying to decorate.

Next is this cute shamrock cut out sign.  I got two of the in the pack, but I only ended up hanging one.  I love how the middle is gold and the rest is green and sparkly!

Then I got a green garland shamrock hanging….thing.  I don’t really know what to call it, but it looks really cute under our message board.  Yes, we did have something else there for Valentine’s Day, but why not switch it out for a different holiday.

Next, we of course have coins!  I got green and gold plastic coins and scattered them around the table.  Honestly, the cats will probably enjoy them after the holiday.

And finally, the part that the cats hated the most.  I, of course, saw these little plastic hats and had to buy them.  For the cats and for no other reason.

And of course they hated me while I was attempting to take pictures.  Target looks absolutely adorable, but Amelia not so much.  She didn’t like how it looked on her I guess.
