Rainbow Leprechaun Hunt. My boys are getting bigger, and are shying away from parties for every holiday…thankfully, my niece, nephew, and some of my friends’ kids still love parties all the time. So, when I am not at the hockey rink or Disney, I am usually sketching ideas for parties and celebrations…and I cannot just let them sit in my head…One of the parties in my head was a Rainbow Leprechaun Hunt. One of my friend’s loves St. Patrick’s Day, and her little girl loves rainbows (like every other little girl right now), so they were my inspiration for this party. I ordered allllll the rainbow things from Party City for this party, and I may have over ordered some, so look for more rainbow parties soon.
Tha backdrop was super simple, plastic table cloths in rainbow (ROY G BIV) order were tacked to the wall. (I saw a backdrop like this online recently, and I cannot recall where, so, if you know who did it first, please let me know so I can credit them properly) It literally took me 2 minutes to create the backdrop! I set up the food on a china cabinet buffet. The front of the buffet needed a little pop of color, so I re-used my green pom garland from Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams. On top of the table, I styled a rainbow of snacks and treats! A simple cake on a red cake stand was given a little make over with gold jelly beans and a tiny cauldron from Party City. Rainbow Sprinkled White Chocolate Popcorn was served in cute square rainbow polka dot bowls. A glass canning jar was filled with gold plastic coins and rainbow colored rock candies. I grabbed our gum ball machine and added it to the table too. On the other side of the table, I set up our leprechaun trap. The kids helped me paint a box and drew the sign. I added another cauldron full of gold plastic coins and a trail of Skittles to the trap. Rainbow chevron treat cups were stuffed with napkins and topped with more Skittles (because no little kid needs that many Skittles).
Finally, I filled rainbow gable boxes with rainbow twist lollipops, gold wrapped buttermint candies, a cauldron, and some gold plastic coins. I added a sweet little glitter shamrock to the front of the boxes and they were ready to be handed out to the leprechaun hunters!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the Shamrock Shakes the kids made during the party, and Friday for the recipe for the more adult friendly Shamrock Shake!
