St. Patrick's Day Birthday Party


It's St. Patrick's Day! Got your green on? I do!



We had a St. Patrick's Day Birthday last night for AH (Awesome Husband). 
Good thing he likes the color green!
It's pretty fun celebrating a birthday the day before St. Patrick's Day.

The table was set in green and gold.
You have to have chocolate gold coins when celebrating St. Patrick's Day!
(Well, at least at our house you do!)

I had the kids make signs for the occasion.
I like to slip them in frames so they look like a piece of art.


Our menu was AH's favorite meal: Khalbi Ribs and Homemade Macaroni and Cheese.
However, I did add lots of green foods.
Green salad and green broccoli (as you can imagine, those were very much appreciated.)
 I had some fun green foods, too! 
{I really need to work on making vegetables fun.}

The 'fun' green foods included:  Grape and kiwi skewers--easy and festive!



Lime jello cups.
To see how I made the shamrock toppers, click here.




Shamrock Juice with apple slice.
 

I got the Shamrock Juice recipe here.
I modified mine a bit, (took out the pineapple juice) but it was sure tasty!
How fun are the apple shamrock slices?!
(Thin slices of apple cut out with a shamrock cookie cutter.)

And of course, birthday cake!
(So, it doesn't qualify as a green food, but it was definitely fun!)



Double layer, yellow cake with chocolate buttercream frosting, garnished with Andes mints...


Simply unwrap Andes mints, cut into various triangle pieces and stick into the chocolate frosting.
Quick, easy and a showstopper!
Serve alongside a scoop of Thin Mint ice cream.
(Yes, AH loves me!)



Last night after the party, AH asked if cake freezes...
Apparently he wants to extend the goodness with a piece in his lunch every day.
Why does he think there will be leftover cake after the week-end?


Happy Birthday, Honey.
(I did ask my daughter to smile...life with a tween.)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
