I don't normally decorate or pay any attention to St-Patrick's day, but we were walking through the grocery store and I was hungry and Maia was begging for a box of Lucky Charms cereal. gah!
So I went ahead and made her separate all of the marshmallows from the cereal in the entire box. That bought me a whole hour of precious silence. I didn't even say anything when I saw her sneaking a marshmallow here and there. I still had enough of them left for cookies, cupcakes and pudding.
I created the little labels by printing out the names of the desserts, and then stamping a banner from the new Lawn Fawn set, Bannertastic
. I made it stand up by creating a folding banner label, adhered to the back. The little boy from Bicycle Built for You
was easily turned into a leprechaun with the right coloring and a little drawn buckle on his hat.
Back to the cookies. I want to say they were amazing, but they were mediocre. Not bad, just not a great cookie. I mean, obviously. There is crushed up cereal in the batter. But the kids thought they were great fun, and loved the pretty colors peeking through. If you want to take a chance and make them yourself, here's the link: click!
The cupcakes got dressed up in pretty green wrappers, and little gold flags, cut with Lawn Fawn's Everyday Sentiment Banners
I sprinkled the tops of the cupcakes with Lucky Charms Marshmallows and these amazing sprinkles
. I am a little obsessed with them.
I also used Lucky Charms cereal to decorate the tops of the Sham-ROCK puddings. Vanilla pudding dyed green. Pretty basic, but it brought the cousins knocking on our door.
I love that I didn't even make the Top O' The Morning Milkshakes to show you, haha. I dressed up the milk bottles in the same green papers
as the cupcake wrappers, and added a tiny tag
stamped with a single shamrock
on each one. I'll fill them for the kids on St-Patrick day with a nice, healthy green smoothie.
The backdrop was made using Lawn Fawn papers too! I tried my hand at making a paper fan background by scooping out all of my green papers. The biggest fans used up 3 12x12 papers each. Apart from needing to press down the folds more tightly, I love how they turned out!
I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!
