Green and Gold St. Patrick’s Day Party

St. Patrick’s Day is easily overlooked when it comes to crafts, baked goods, and DIY’s. Personally I don’t feel the need to have any St. Patrick’s Day decor, but you know me, I love to party. So in case you need a reason to celebrate or just eat some really yummy sweets, here are some fun green and gold ideas to get you in the mood.

Animal Bookends

By Rachael Smith, Penelope & Pip

As a book lover I’m always on the lookout for a pair of cute bookends. I have been searching for animal ones for ages, but the ones I’ve fallen in love with are a bit out of my budget.

Glitter is such a fun medium to work with (especially when it’s hot pink!) and the kids will love helping you make a new little addition to brighten up their shelves.


Note from the Editor

By Liz Stanley, Managing Editor

This time of year I get a little stir crazy to travel. The past weekend my husband and son and I took a must needed camping trip in Big Sur with some friends and it was the perfect little getaway.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love, Liz + The Julep Editors

From little vinyl stickies (I just used some copper ones for a recent party) to simple paper ones in all the colors of the rainbow, wall confetti isn’t going anywhere soon. This weekend I was making a hand-painted birthday sign for Henry’s upcoming 7th birthday. The blue and aqua colors were so cool on the black card stock that I thought I would try a variation for confetti…
