I love being extra.
I love an extra reason to do something fun for our kids and my friends!
We have been celebrating all the holidays together with kid parties and it has been so much fun.
Back drop and bar cart always add a little extra to a party!
This Bar cart is super cute and super affordable. I put it together myself quickly and the quality is great.
The ballon garland is made from different size and colors of green balloons. Also, this Ballon strip helps to create the outline for your garland.
I love the have the food match my theme. So for food I did “green” and “rainbow.”
For the main food I did “golden chicken nuggets,” broccoli tots, green quesadillas, a rainbow with gold at the end, spinach muffins.
Then I did a table with sweets at the end of the rainbow.
I made green rice krispy treats and lucky charm rice krispy treats. Then I bought green jelly beans, cheddar popcorn, green apple popcorn, and green rock lollipops from a local popcorn shop. I also added little pots with chocolate coins.
Cute gold plates from party city and tiny favor boxes from the dollar store for kids to eat and take home.
I love things to look cute but more than that I love the kids to have a good time and get to take something home.
I also sent these little St. Patrick day balls home with the kids. Besides the dollar store, oriental trading is my favorite place to buy for kid parties.
I also had an assortment of headbands, beads, hats, and clappers that the coulda do wear and take home. Mostly from the dollar store and oriental trading.
Not to mention I’m a big sucker for holiday books. We had The luckiest St. Patrick’s day ever, 10 lucky leprechauns, and The old lady who swallowed a clover. (My favorite)
All on amazon prime, because even tho I’m a Pinterest time mom… amazon prime is still a winner!!!
Then of course some of my late night Pinterest finds came to life with sensory play. I made a big batch of green spaghetti and added plastic golden coins and a big tub of lucky charms with cups and tools.
This seemed to be a bigger hit with the younger tots than the older, but everyone still enjoyed it.
Similar to Briley’s green shirt from Nordstrom Green shirt.
The kids and moms had a blast and that’s what it’s all about.
