I have been a grading machine this week and have never gotten around to taking pictures of a few small projects to share (despite the extra hour of sunlight), so I thought I didn't have anything to share around here tonight.
But then I remembered I had an old post draft that I never wrote...like fall 2015 old. I was going to share it last year around St. Patrick's Day, but I never did.
So back in fall 2015, I hosted a little lunch for my mom's best friend's daughter's third baby boy. I actually just shared his first birthday build a fort kit gift a couple weeks ago. I loved the chance to host showers for his brothers too in 2012 and 2014. This time we went with an Irish theme since they all have awesome Irish names.
The decorations were super simple, but I loved the chance to put together three hearts into a shamrock and have some Bells of Ireland for the flowers. I sprinkled green fabric hearts over the table too and had fun wrapping up the little favors.
We had a simple lunch with a salad and a make-your-own baked potato bar. I somehow got through my entire life without eating a potato skin from a baked potato. However, once I tried it I was completely hooked and a baked potato has been my go-to easy dinner ever since. I follow these instructions to bake potatoes and they really are perfect.
So glad I remembered to finally share this little Irish themed shower...it really was one of my most favorite celebrations to host.
