A Festive St. Patrick’s Day Party for Kids!
Last year a group of fabulous female-owned small businesses came together to create a unique spin on a St. Paddy’s day kid’s party! It was action packed and playful.
The Kids Table
We styled the table with a stunning green centerpiece atop a St. Patrick’s Day themed coloring tablecloth. The kids used rainbow shamrock-shaped custom crayons to color it in while eating their golden boxed lunch. Of course, they had a couple sweets to snack on too, including a mini cupcake and golden macaron! We created acrylic name tags to slide over their straws on their mason jars. They also had cookie name plates at each setting. We added sparkling shamrocks to jazz up the gold chiavari chairs. Next up, we decorated cookies!
This golden nugget hunt was so fun that the kids kept asking me to hide them for weeks to come! I simply spray painted them gold and wrote affirmations on them with white paint pens. I superglued plastic coins on them, and made sure to count how many I had before hiding. They had a blast and burned some energy running around.
The Dessert Table & Backdrop
I love this playful theme. A simple white backdrop with a Shenanigans Encouraged sign was flanked by tonal green rainbow balloons. On the table was a statement cake, a pile of golden macarons and shamrock cookies. The kids were able to make their own Lucky Leprechaun float complete with shamrock stir stick and sprinkles.
