St. Patrick’s Day: Eliana’s Mint Shamrock Party. Want a simple, elegant idea for your little St. Paddy’s Day baby?  Today I’m sharing this sweet Mint Shamrock Party I recently styled. Be sure to check out all of our St. Patrick’s Day Ideas and Inspiration.


I LOVE the color Mint.  Love it.  It’s my latest obsession!!!  So when my sweet friend Miranda asked me to help her put together a first birthday party for her adorable little princess Eliana, I knew we had to go with the Mint!!  Little Eliana was actually born on St. Patrick’s Day so incorporating some St. Paddy’s Day Bling into the design was perfect.  We wanted to avoid the typical, cheesy holiday decor and do something simple and elegant.  So mint stripes, ruffles, and glittery gold seemed only fitting!   Check it out…

I loved the contrast between the soft mint and the glittery gold.  The simplicity of the design and the tablescape made a great set-up for a fun party at the park.  It was a gorgeous day (although, a little windier than you’d like as a party planner).  The weather was perfect and the green grass made for a nice backdrop to the party.  IMG_8208 Eliana9 IMG_8201

Here is the sweet little thing in her party dress!  Too cute!IMG_8196 IMG_8203

We had homemade chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes, glazed donuts, marshmallow pops, and green fruit skewers for dessert.  We also had hot dogs and polish dogs and all the fixings!  It was lovely and yummy!IMG_6190 IMG_8141 IMG_8143 IMG_8146

I used black and white photos of Eliana throughout the party in pretty gold frames (white frames I spray painted of course) to add to the decor.  I love this little bit of personalization!IMG_8178 IMG_8206 IMG_8207 IMG_8202Here’s a close-up of the fruit skewers.  A little tip for using apples…to keep them from browning up too fast, soak them in sprite immediately after cutting until you are ready to serve them.  It helps soooo much!!
