St. Patrick’s Day Party!

St. Patrick's Day Party Today I am sharing my son’s first St. Patrick’s Day Party. It was everything he wanted, everything green, shamrocks, leprechauns, and gold coins!  I wanted to make this St. Patrick’s Day Party a little healthier than my past parties.  I decided to use the green  color scheme to my advantage, and used many naturally green fruits and vegetables along with sugar free items, and of course some sweets too. I designed two different tables, let me know which one you like better!

Here is the first table I designed.  For this table, I made a easy non sew pennant banner with three different patterns of material.  I made gift bags with the left over material.  You can see other pennant banners I have made here Saint Patrick's Day Party

Another decoration that I thought made a nice look was the pinwheels.  It is a lot simpler then the pinwheels I used here for this party!

This is the second dessert table for this party, which one do you think is better?

These cake pops were really fun and easy to make! I made a chocolate cake pop and let it completely dry.  Then I took a new paint brush and painted water all over the cake pop.  Next, I opened a bottle of green disco dust and painted it all over the cake pop.  When they dry they look just like this, very sparkly and pretty! You can see some other cake pops I made with disco dust here, and some other Saint Patrick’s day cake balls here.

I bought little green cups that I got from Oriental Trading Co. and filled them with delicious green grapes.

I made platters of green vegetables with broccoli, cucumbers, and celery.

I made sugar free jello and cut them into shamrocks (another healthier choice).

I made kiwi strawberry juice, instead of the usual sugar packed punch or soda.  I got to use my new beverage dispenser, and it worked great!

Now on to the non healthy items :)  The cake is three tiered and I made the fondant myself. You can find the recipe Here.  For this cake I made two batches of marshmallow fondant.  I rolled out the green fondant thin and cut out the shamrocks with cookie cutters, using two different sizes.

I made these cookies with a mold I got on Amazon.com.  I painted green chocolate on the shamrock, then placed an Oreo cookie inside.  After that, I covered the cookie with more green chocolate.  I used wilton candy melts.

The cake pops are vanilla cake with green chocolate, and white sprinkles.  I think cake pops always make a party more festive!

I filled a green leprechaun pot with gold rolos, they are so cute and look just like gold.  These two leprechauns add the perfect finishing touch to the table.

  1. Hi! I am in love with the cake pops. Can I ask where you are getting the disco dust. How much donyoubthink it takes to get it that color and so shiny? In Las Vegas I pay 6.00 per bottle for a minut amount.

    • Thank you Angela! I got the disco dust at a store called Do it with Icing, it is a local cake decorating store. It took a lot less then a bottle to cover the cake pops. It is about 5 dollars for the bottle here in San Diego. A thick layer of the disco dust really helps make it shiny :) hope that helped!
