Bring out some color and fun this March with one of these adorably colorful St. Patrick’s Day sweet treats for any type of mom.
It must be great to be a kid these days. Either parents are more creative (competitive?) than they were in the 80s, or I just wasn’t aware of all the fun and colorful ways you could celebrate just about any holiday. And of all the holidays, St. Patrick’s Day has to be the most colorful, with all the rainbows and gold coins and bright green clovers.
In celebration of all that color, I thought it would be fun to share some of the prettiest St. Patrick’s Day sweet treats I’ve seen lately. There’s something here for everyone. I’m more of a “try to do homemade” or “spruce up the store-bought” kind of girl. But if you want to try out a challenge or just buy it and be done you’re covered.
No matter what, your kids will probably remember St. Patrick’s Day as a day full of color and happiness.
These rainbow cupcakes from Our Best Bites are simply adorable. I love how the cake itself is the feature, with just a simple little dollop of frosting on top!
Check out the detail on this pot-o-gold cookie! Not just the rainbow itself, but those tiny gold pieces are incredible. I especially like the change from a typical sugar cookie to a chocolate-based cookie. Yum! (via Sweetopia)
Okay, these guys are just too cute to be mischievous! I think I especially like the one winking at me! (from Katie Duran on Etsy)
I’m always looking for quick and simple ideas that also pack a huge impact. These treat bags fit the bill with a simple combination of Rolos and Rainbow Twizzlers. (thank you Our Best Bites for another fun idea!)
There are so many more ideas out there, and I wish I had more time to share them all. Hopefully you found something new and fun for your celebration this weekend!
