I remember fantasizing about finding pots of gold and seeing leprechauns when I was a kid but the holiday always felt a little disappointing when I realized all we were doing was pinching the kids not wearing green. This year for St. Patrick’s day we decided to make a Pot of Gold Piñata and fill it with chocolate gold coins. To find the Pot of Gold we had the kids follow a rainbow thread trail around the house. It really added to the excitement of the piñata. (ps: this is a version of last year’s Yarn Trail Installation, and one we did for Paul’s birthday three years ago.) Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I love the idea of unconvential party decorations like these party necklaces. (Remember this party necklace from last year.) Instead of a handing out party hats, give your guests a necklace when they walk in the door. I like these because you can make them any color you want and they look so cute and festive. These would be great for a birthday party or even for a shower. Find the complete instructions below!
It is no secret I have a tiny obsession with piñatas. But sometimes I think it is a shame to hit them to pieces because they are so pretty. Lately I’ve been using them a little differently, as presents. I make a smallish piñata (about 11″ tall) and then fill it with treats then give them to a friend for a birthday or special occasion. I love them because it doesn’t take much time 1-2 hours (an evening of movie watching) and they feel really special to give. One of my friends even keeps hers on her desk year round as decoration.
