‘Tis the weekend to be celebrating St. Patty’s Day! To help get ready for a family gathering at my house to celebrate this special day, I headed to Duane Reade for a wee bit of green decoration and some festive sweet treats.
My mother will be bringing the traditional soda bread and corned beef, so I thought I would make dessert. I bought cake mix and frosting.
To decorate my cake I purchased:
- Nice! Spearmint Leaves
- Nice! Mini Peanut Butter Cups
- Reeses Pieces
- Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
Duane Reade Seasonal is filled with Easter right now, but take a look for some good finds like the Green Easter Basket and St. Patrick’s Day Tattoos that I found mixed in the shelves too. Oh, and you can take out the Gold and Green foil Spring Reeses Peanut Butter Cups to add to your dessert table too.
While in the deLish aisle, the the Impressive Milk Chocolate Castle Cookies reminded me of the Castles of Ireland. And, when I saw the kilt on the Scottish Shortbread Fingers, I thought they would be a conversation piece at my party!
One of the best parts of Duane Reade is that they offer Papyrus cards. I fell in love with the glittery jeweled shamrock and I thought my three savvy ladies could give it to my mother and father. (In case you are a shop in advance kind of gal, the Papyrus section has beautiful Easter cards also available.)
Wishing you and your family a Happy St. Patty’s Day!
Wishing you happiness, health
and the luck of the Irish
on St. Patrick’s Day and Always
