St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that is celebrated differently in each household.  To some it is green pancakes for breakfast and to others it is an all-day party!

I probably will never party all night long but, to me, one of my favorite parts of St. Patrick’s Day is to watch how the rest of the world chooses to celebrate and to get INSPIRED!

That is how the Great Leprechaun Trap of ’09 came to be…and how it failed miserably.

But that one failure hasn’t stopped me from gathering ideas.  Now whose household celebrates it the best–that is for you to choose!  Here are some of my favorite ideas!

These cupcakes are the perfect way to find the way to the end of the rainbow!

 

This is my favorite St. Patrick’s Day shirt of the season!  Isn’t it cute?  And you can get it HERE!

 

This cake is what my dreams are made up of!  And it looks quick enough that you could whip one up for St. Patrick’s Day.

The kitchen is definitely my favorite place in any home. I love cooking but I also love how it brings people together. Although we lived in different cities growing up, I consider Sugar City, Idaho to be my hometown. Now, my husband and I live in Meridian, Idaho with our three not-so-little kids. My life is filled with good food, friends, and family—and it’s even better when I can find a great deal!

    Those cupcakes are beautiful and intricately done! I also like the multi layer cake that looked like a color spectrum. Oh, this is making me hungry! We’re not celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in our country though, but I’m familiar of it through stories and materials I’ve read.

    I didn’t know people celebrated with green pancakes for breakfast! Why have I never tried that?! I love the look of that green layer cake! Not sure I could replicate though..

    Reply
    • Alison

      It doesn’t look that hard to replicate but I know there is some work involved! 🙂 And yes, green pancakes are the best!

    These are lovely ideas. St. Patrick’s day is my birthday so we celebrate that rather than actually St. Patrick’s day. Although I mihgt make a green cake next year

      That’s a great idea to have a green cake but I agree birthdays trump St. Patrick’s Day!
