Rainbows and Pots of Gold

Rainbows and Pots of Gold

I totally forgot to buy St. Patrick’s Day gifts this year. Yes, people really do exchange gifts for St. Patrick’s Day; at least they do with me. I tend to celebrate it as a third birthday, after my real birthday and half birthday. If you haven’t started celebrating your half birthday you don’t know what you’re missing. As a December baby I love getting the opportunity to celebrate when it’s warm outside, and people aren’t all caught up in the Christmas hustle and bustle.

So I needed to come up with something inexpensive, that could also serve for multiple groups of people. I had almost an entire batch of Celebrate Good Times Vanilla Cake Mix Cookies left from my third week’s entry to the SOLO Simple But Good Recipe Contest. I started brainstorming on what I could do with them to repurpose them for St. Patrick’s Day. After a little bit of thought, and a quick search on Pinterest, I decided to create a gift bag with a rainbows and pots of gold theme.

The real stroke of genius was deciding to use this picture of Brenna dressed up as a leprechaun. Isn’t she adorable? Doesn’t she just look full of Happy Happy Joy Joy? Did I mention the fact that some of these “gifts” were for co-workers? Not all of them know about Brenna, so I’m pretty sure I’m the crazy cat lady to some of them now.

If You Are Oh So Lucky

Just in case you’re wondering, Brenna hates wearing the leprechaun hat. I’m not sure if I’m up for the challenge of putting it on her again this year. She does however tolerate a stretchy ribboned and sequined collar that I put on her, for the first five minutes at least.

ROLO Chewy Caramels make perfect pots of gold. Pinterest has many great ideas using various different kinds of colored candy and gold coins. Below are some of my faves.

Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day, and don’t forget to avoid the green beer, its leprechaun pee!

Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck
