kids-st-patrick-party

Now that Valentine’s Day is over we move on from hearts, love, red, Cupid, and pink to green, booze, rainbows, leprechauns, pots of gold, shamrocks, and all things Irish. In some places like Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Day is seen as a religious holiday since it’s the feast of the nation’s patron saint who brought Christianity to the country. Yet, for many, it’s also an excuse for people to watch their local parades and get sloshed, which has the tendency to insult many Irish. Nevertheless, many Irish Americans don’t seem to mind and they tend to outnumber the Irish in Ireland. Still, whether for better or worse, Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world. Last year, I did a post on treats pertaining to the holiday which received a great reception. And because I found so many treats on Pinterest, I couldn’t refuse. After all, I’m an Irish Catholic in Pennsylvania so I have to honor that heritage.So for your reading pleasure, here are some more lucky treats for this Saint Patrick’s Day.

  1. Dip some sugar cookies in some rainbow cheescake dip.
1f70c4c0417adfa2c31765be96188570

As I call it, the signature seven layer dip for Saint Paddy’s Day. However, unlike the game day counterpart, all layers have the same stuff but in different colors.

2. For your Saint Patrick’s Day party, you can’t have a better place for your spinach dip than a shamrock bread bowl.

2db5dc01c289200943c01b2d82e2a6b7

Now that’s a really big bread bowl. But at least it’s rather fitting for the occasion. And you can take a piece of it, too.

3. This Saint Patrick’s Day, serve your guests some lucky lime salad bars.

3ac9dbe2afbbd8e48c21715354ee38ce

Guess these are the kind of Saint Patrick’s Day salad bars they served in the 1950s. You know, the time when people used salad and mayonnaise on everything according to magazines.

4. Your kids would consider themselves lucky eating these shamrock Rice Kristpie treats.

6a0120a538ca82970c017c373f6321970b

You can even decorate these with Easter M&M’s. And I think they might be available since Easter tends to be a bigger holiday. Believe me, I know.

5. This Saint Patrick’s Day, celebrate with some four leaf clover quiche.

Looks pretty small as far as I can see. Includes spinach which goes without saying. Still, very appropriate for March 17.

6. Treat your kids this Saint Patrick’s Day to some leprechaun marshmallow pops.

8dc050b6bcd6f80907ff2bc7e588b7ac

Sure it’s probably filled with sugary sweetness. But you have to admit that this is quite cute if you ask me.

7. Of course, you can never go too fancy with shamrock cookies.

8e360874b538fa0538769f76d2fd2c4c

As we can see by the patterns, they’re definitely professionally made and not cheap. Still, love the patterns.

8. For pots of gold, Oreos can really come in handy.

43fb7556bca92a68d7dc4477667cc95d

Yes, these are cupcakes. But the Oreos are dipped in chocolate icing and decorated with gold sprinkles. Seems doable.

9. For Saint Patrick’s Day, green bread is always the best bread.

55fe0cd5cd775d2ecebc659839df1f55

Don’t worry, I think it’s pistachio bread. Still, best served with a breakfast of green eggs and ham. Well, as long as such stuff has green food coloring and doesn’t cause trichinosis.

10. If you like pasta, then you’ll love some rainbow spaghetti.

87e063609687990b3d0f9666e013e7fb

I’m sure the pot of gold is supposed to consist of cheese and bacon. Yet, I like how the spaghetti is in all different colors.

11. Grace your Saint Patrick’s Day dessert platter with this shamrock pie.

st-patricks-day-pie-450x600-custom

I think this might be an apple pie but I’m not sure. Nevertheless, I did post a picture of a shamrock pie before, but not one like this.

12. Who says that you can’t have shamrocks or rainbows?

463bce5802f1613d0c6e991e1418faa8

Yes, these cookies have shamrocks and rainbows. And they have 2 sugar cookie layers to boot.

14. Grace your dinner table this Saint Patrick’s Day with some shamrock braided bread.

1017f2ef6873078e00726beaf8ea8cac

To make bread dough is easy. To braid it and make it into a 4 leaf shamrock doesn’t. Or at least as I see it.

15. If you want some meat in your clover bread, these shamrock sausage rolls will sure please.

6249e40be31d58b16ea6cfa6bdf38392

Yes, this is one of those tearaway cupcake cakes. It’s said to be “end of the rainbow” but I don’t see a pot of gold within sight. Just clouds.

19. This Saint Patrick’s Day, start off with a shamrock omelette.

b296650aa72ce5ad8d93d9416153b573

As you can see, green bell peppers make great 4 leaf clovers. Still, it means you might have to chop them from the top instead of the side though.
