DIY & Crafts Party and DIY Videos Rainbow Parties 7:01 AMC Riches
Did you see the pretty rainbow balloon arch we shared last week? Well, this DIY is a spin off, since we used the same technique to make a garland that you can use to decorate walls or as a table runner!
We also made a quick video to help explain how we achieve this look with a simple party trick using regular balloons!
Being a party blogger, means that party supplies are an integral part of what I do, of course. They're my tools-of-the-trade, if you like 😊
And I always get super excited about planning each event we share here on the blog! We always strive to come up with something unique, fresh and new to share, and hopefully that inspires your own parties and celebrations!
Like promised on Instagram, we're gonna be bombarding you with color until St Patrick's Day. You're welcome! 😋
Rainbows evoke something magical, don't they? So this year we're glad to be inspired by all things 'rainbow' for these celebrations. Starting with today's super easy DIY craft, with NO-helium-required, no wire frame in sight, and that only uses materials you most probably already have in the house.
Sounds good? Awesome! Let's get started!

For my green & metallic tablescape I showed you here, I made some quick and easy DIY pots of gold for each table place setting.
I love how simple these are to make with materials you already probably have at home, and in no time at all you have something super cute but also practical that does double-duty as table decor! ;)
Kids can totally help too, and in fact, would make a cute St Paddy's Day gift for teachers and class mates too!

With St Paddy's Day 'round the corner, I find myself drawn to all things green and gold.
And ever since this post last year, I have been itching to get to style a simple green tablescape with pretty shiny accents!
Plus, it also gives me an excuse to use my recent metallic tableware acquisitions ;)

Valentines Day's over and we're wasting not time in prepping for St Patrick's Day 'round here!
And I'm feeling super lucky, 'cause I get to create AND taste test, yummy recipes like these Stout Chocolate Cupcake with Irish Cream Frosting!
This is a super easy and delicious recipe, and I'm sharing my cheat frosting technique too.
Lucky YOU! ;)
Wearing green on St Patrick's Day not only ensures you won't get pinched, but it's also meant to bring good luck.
But, I do not fancy looking like I took fashion lessons from a leprechaun...
Nothing wrong with how they dress per say (if any leprechauns are reading this...), but after the age of 18 it gets a little harder to rock the stripy socks and green wig look ;)

St. Patrick's Day is 'round the corner, and what better appetizer than a creamy houmous, to soak up the lashings of Guinness ?!
This is a favorite dip in our house, and makes a welcome appearance on many cocktail parties because it's super easy and quick to make, quite healthy, you can make it a day in advance, and tastes DIVINE!
My husband has been know to "drink" the stuff. Neat! So I always make sure I make plenty.
And I have a little secret for making it super creamy too!
I love DIY party favors. Especially the cute but quickie kind!
And I often turn to candy, or some variation on the theme...And St Patrick's Day is no different.
Take a candy tube, some color appropriate green gumballs, add a dash of cuteness with free printables and voila! Instant favors that will charm the lucky pants off any leprechaun! ;)

St Patrick's Day is just around the corner, so we've been inspired by all things green and gold!
Gold is in our party palettes most time of the year, but couple with emerald hues in Feb., it makes for a classy and grown-up festive combination for any St Paddy's Day dinner parties, family gatherings, and of course seasonal weddings!
March's arrived and St Patrick's day is only a couple of weeks away, so we've got our leprechaun party hats on 'round here!
And for me, it's the ideal (excuse) occasion to treat myself to a yummy Irish Coffee. Whether for a party or just because, as it's the perfectly warming cocktail for this time of year too, and super simple to make.

Just in case you've missed any of our posts this week! ;)
Plus, there are a couple more green gems in there that we just had to share!
The theme of the day as you probably guessed from our earlier post, is "easy". And these party appetizers and cocktail recipes really are super quick and easy to make, and therefore perfect for a last minute St Patrick's Day Party - Tried and tested! ;)
I also aimed to include as many 'standby' cupboard ingredients as I could, and raided my pantry for ideas on creating GREEN recipes that were pretty simple to make and family-friendly - but not skipping on flavor!
