Waiting for approaching holidays is almost as bad as waiting for an upcoming vacation. I am currently failing miserably at both. St. Patrick’s Day is in two days, I have no plans, and I will most likely sit at home drinking a green glass of wine while stuffing my face with green cookies. And that’s pending someone baking me some green cookies. Since I clearly cannot bake anything on my own. Dying the wine green is about as much effort as I can put into this party, especially after all the holiday treats I’ve been busy putting together. If you want to receive a St. Patrick’s Day treat from me, you’ll have to sign up to be my friend. I’ll start the list now. If you’re lucky enough you’ll get a coveted spot on the list. Ready, GO!
Who am I kidding? I can’t even handle the three friends that I do have. I’m sorry but I’m going to have to close the list down. No more new friends for me. Besides, I spend too much time as it is making all of these little holiday treats. If I had to make any more my fingers would bleed. And since we have enough of that in our household (my husband chews his nails until they bleed), I think we can do without.
If you think you wanna take a stab at it (see what I did there?!), be my guest! I bought a three pack of ceramic flower pots at The Dollar Tree, spray painted them gold, and filled them with gold candy. I tied the tag onto a piece of candy so it would stay where I wanted it (kept sliding off the pot). Use a little “stuffing” if you’d like to add extra flair (I used gold Easter grass).
You can download the tag here, and print to whatever size you’d like.
So tell me, what are your big St. Patrick’s Day plans!?
