This St. Patrick’s Day breakfast party is incredible easy to create! I started with some fun St. Patrick’s Day decorations from the local party store – the dollar store has some great options too – like a leprechaun hat, clovers, and some themed plates with napkins. I don’t like pinning decorations onto my walls so I use the foam poster boards from the dollar store. They are sturdy enough that you can just lean them against your wall and pin your decorations right onto them. For a fun background, you can cover these boards in colourful wrapping paper.
For food, a St. Patrick’s Day party wouldn’t be complete without a leprechaun’s favourite treat – Lucky Charms! I placed the Lucky Charms in clear plastic bowls with milk in glass bottles. For a special green treat, you can use food colouring to turn the milk green.
My favourite breakfast treats include pancakes and waffles so I created some rainbow pancakes by simply adding food colouring to a boxed pancake mix. This would work great for waffles too! Don’t forget the syrup and whipped cream.
After all those Lucky Charms and syrup-covered pancakes, it’s great to have a healthy snack option too like a fruit rainbow. For my fruit rainbow I layered strawberries, oranges, pineapple, green grapes, blueberries and purple grapes. My son isn’t a big fan of sweets but he tried to eat this entire rainbow fruit platter on his own! He may only be 4 years old, but he already has quite the appetite!
In rainbow-striped favour boxes, you could give your little party guests a St. Patrick’s Day treat like rainbow skittles, chocolate gold coins or some funny leprechaun riddles.
I hope your St. Patrick’s Day is a magical one!
