A 'Green' Birthday Party

No- not an environmentally-friendly birthday party but 'GREEN' as in ST. Patrick's Day Green. We don't really even ever celebrate St. Paddy's Day except for the odd Irish Coffee but this year I thought I'd give that theme to my husband's family birthday party. After all, his birthday is on March 20th and we're celebrating it this weekend- a little early. Even though just my family and grandkids are coming I thought I'd add a few Irish Green party favours, etc. to the party fare. Just for fun I will have a green icing'd cake and I may even add some green food colouring to my son-in-law's and son's beer. Ha! And of course there will be Irish Coffees as that is my husband's specialty and he makes them perfectly. He is from Northern Ireland so he does have a little experience in making them. Will I wear a green hat? I just might! Yes it is silly but it's also fun so that counts me in for sure- lol!

That sounds like fun. I'm surprised you don't have a green party for him every year with the family even if his birthday isn't on the particular day. Especially since he's of Irish decent. I told someone I hadn't had anything sweet for some months, but I forgot I did have two cookies that were available at work on that day.
