In The Studio: St. Patrick’s Day
We know our happening hostesses will be dressed in all of their St. Patrick’s Day best this Saturday with an eventful day planned to boot! We love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day as it’s the perfect reason to dress and decorate in various hues of green, a favorite color of ours!
This St. Patrick’s Day, be the most happening hostess on the block with fun ideas from Chalkboard China and our friends!
Luck O’ The Irish Cake Pops + Chalkboard China Daisy Vase
Whether you’d rather have cake pops as party treats or used for party favors for guests, you can’t go wrong with these yummy, bite sized sweets. If you make them in colors of green and white with fun sprinkles, these cake pops are a great way to celebrate the day. For a fun party favor idea, grab a Chalkboard China Daisy Vase in Fern or Evergreen, fill with tissue paper or other packing material and POP a few individually wrapped cake pops into the vase. Chalk on a fun, St. Patty’s Day inspired message and your guests will be leaving with not only yummy eats, but a precious gift that they can use and reuse time and time again. What a thoughtful way to remember a fun St. Patrick’s Day!
Our friend at A Thrifty Mom shares a simple recipe for making Luck O’ The Irish Cake Pops. Yum!
Green Thumb Carnations + Chalkboard China Vase
Here’s an easy idea presented by the one and only, Martha Stewart. Turn white carnations green for a beautiful addition to St. Patrick’s Day decor. First, gather your tools: carnations (as many as you’d like), scissors, green food coloring and the Chalkboard China Vase of your choice in either Fern, Evergreen or the traditional black slate. Next, mix food coloring with water according to the instructions on the package. Then, fill your vase with mixture. Cut the ends of your carnations off under running water and place in the food coloring/water filled vase overnight. Your carnations will be green by morning!
And don’t forget to chalk on a “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!” on the vase!
Green & Gold Cocktails + Chalkboard China Carafe + Chalkboard China Stemware
If it’s just the adults, you can’t have a St. Patrick’s Day party without holiday-themed cocktails! Of course green beer is always a fun option, but why not mix it up this year with a fizzy cocktail your guests can cheers to? One of our fave New York event planners, Mark Addison, shares Green & Gold Cocktails that will shimmer with delight and taste great, too. Pour these fizzy, sweet drink from a Chalkboard China Carafe and serve in your favorite Chalkboard China stemware in Fern — Red Wine Glass, White Wine Glass, Champagne Glass, Margarita Glass or Martini Glass.
If you’re hosting a family friendly party, whip up a yummy treat for the kiddos with the Snazzy Shamrock Shake. One of our favorite mommy bloggers, Aimee Lane from It’s Overflowing, shares these tasty shakes to sip on.
