Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
St. Patrick’s Day is a fun holiday for my little family.  It’s the anniversary of the first day my husband and I met, so it’s kind of like the anniversary of our family in a way.  I thought I would share some fun St. Patrick’s Day Ideas, and some fun green food ideas for the holiday!

I always like to pull of a festive feast for my family on holidays if I can.  I try to make sure that it is something that I want to do for them, instead of looking at it as a chore.  But, really I truly do like to see their faces of excitement when they see the festive table!  I think maybe because my parents grew up in France and Vietnam, so many holidays are a little foreign to them.  While we celebrated many, things weren’t over the top, so maybe that’s why I tend to go a little that way.  It’s fun for me to live and experience the holidays right along with my children!

My daughter Norah especially loves to help me set up for holidays.  The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, huh?. She loves to help me set the table, and often plans parties as part of her pretend play. So cute!

I set up as many green items to go with the St. Patrick’s Day theme as much as possible.  
Green rolls, green grapes, gold coins, green mint and chocolate chip cookies.

For the rest of the food, we had my favorite Kale caesar salad (all ingredients can be found at Harmons Grocery) with crostini’s, green tortellini with pesto sauce, and steamed broccoli.  The beauty is you can homemake, or store buy many items depending on how much time you have, and you can pull of this festive spread without too much work involved! I always turn to my party supply box, and as always being a hoarder pays off for me, wink!

    I love this idea! It’s so fun for the kids, not to mention delicious! I didn’t know there were so many tasty green foods! Most of the time the only thing people think of for St. Patrick’s day is “green eggs and ham”! I love how this is way more original, and a lot more fun in my opinion!
