Notice the confetti :) Confetti is a staple at all my parties and is much missed by friends if I don't put it out. If it's missing at my parties they let me know.
I jazzed up plain gold cups by sticking a shamrock sticker on them. Pack of 20/ $1.00 at a Joann's.
Rice Krispy Shamrocks and Irish Cream cupcakes, mmm sugar :) The cupcake toppers are stickers stuck on toothpicks. Fun and easy.
Party Pinching, this pictures for you. I bought those little duckies when I went up and visited her. SUCH a fun trip. Aren't the duckies cuuute :)
Mint soda. It's a very mild mint flavor and tastes really good. Like a virgin mint julep.
I stuck little shamrock stickers on the cauldrons to jazz them up. My co-workers had fun putting the little hats on their heads and playing poker with the gold coins. "I'll see you 2 gold coins and raise you a hat" " I'm all in" (my friend put the pot o' gold, seen behind the cauldron, in the kitty). Cracked us up!
Even though I only had 15 minutes to set up this party, we all had a great time, laughed a lot and it was nice was to break up the week. The party was over the lunch hour on Wednesday.
I hope I've inspired you to throw a party together and shown you that you don't need to spend oodles to have a great time.
