I mentioned last week that we are going to be hosting a St.Patrick's Day Beer Tasting Party. I stole the Beer Tasting idea from Ashley at Decorating Obsessed, and I picked St. Patrick's Day well, 1. because we are Irish (duh) and 2. because we always have annual get togethers with some of our friends - 4th of July BBQ at one couple's, Halloween Party at another's, and of course the Ugly Sweater Christmas Party. So aside from the sporadic bridal/baby shower, fantasy football draft, and weddings (which are all over now), we only see each other the second half of the year. I think I finally found our holiday party niche and it's perfect for us.
As soon as I decided I wanted to throw a St. Patty's Day party, I knew I wanted to copy some of Ashley's great details and make it a beer tasting party (since not every one can down Guinness all afternoon and wine on St.Pat's just doesn't work)... I'll get to those details in another post, but for now I thought I'd share some of the craft projects I'm starting for party decor.
First up, a homemade paper pennant. I see a lot of these for party or even wedding decor on all the style/event blogs. I thought I'd take a stab at making my own. (I used this tutorial here for some guidance)
On Saturday, I hit up Michael's and bought a sheet of all the green scrapbook paper I could find... For $10 or so I came home with a huge haul.
