I am a bit behind at sharing about our Saint Patrick's Day festivities but I figured better late than never, right? We started the day off with shamrock shaped pancakes (using this cookie cutter technique and a little green food coloring).
We usually have dinner with my parents on Sunday nights, so I took out a couple of my Saint Patrick's Day dishes to dress up our table. I have really downsized on my holiday decor, so I am down to just a few dishes and one little shamrock ornament. Yet somehow, in just those few items, the dinner still felt special.
I picked up these cute polka dot napkins to use for Easter but I thought they would be fun to add a little color to my green table. How easy does napkins and paper straws dress up a table?! I am now adding fun napkins to my party supplies list. I also recently purchased a new burlap runner from World Market.
I made sure to wear my green...top from Banana Republic outlet (recent).
I made a new recipe for broccoli and cheese soup which proved to be quite tasty.
And like every year, we finished it off with mint chocolate chip milkshakes. It's my favorite part.
