St. Patrick's Day Free Party Printables

Now that we have a new kitchen table, its time to host our first dinner party!

St. Patrick's Day is the perfect excuse to host a themed meal and do a little baking. While looking for themed printable cupcake wrappers, I came across all sorts of fun DIY and printable decor.

Here are a few of my favorite St. Patrick's Day themed printables:

These perfectly bright cupcake wrappers were made by Penny Candy Studios. Just print, cut and wrap!

If you're feeling the preppy plaid, this collection of printables from Meredith at MJ Paperie are available at Catch My Party.

For really ambitious decorators, this Love The Day collection has everything you need to coordinate your party. Just remember to stock up on green ink.

These party circles from the TomKat Studio are shown as cupcake toppers but could be used in any project.

Finally, most items from this gorgeous collection from Rebekah at A Blissfull Nest are free for a limited time at


I hope this has inspired you to get in the St. Patrick's Day spirit!

New Kitchen Table (Finally!)

We finally have a proper kitchen table!

I can't begin to express how happy I am about this. It was the last purchase that moved us from student living to a proper adult home.

We chose Sunpan's Modena Glass Dining Table since it matches our glass coffee table and dark wood cabinets. Plus I find the glass really opens a small space up.

Here is Cam fixing the mistake I made when we put it together (see if you can spot what's wrong with the table in this photo):

And the finished product - Zander approves.
