birthday/St. Pat’s centerpieces

On St. Patty’s day we will be celebrating my dad’s 80th birthday.

I have been assigned the task of creating centerpieces for the tables. Since I have to make 10 of them, I tried to keep the cost to a minimum.  Thank goodness for the dollar store :)

I filled a derby with some kitty litter, stuffed it with tissue paper, added some foam shamrocks, and cut out some numbers to make it fit with the 80th birthday theme.

A little over $2.00 each. One down, nine to go.



  1. That's adorable Mel! Perfect for a St Pat's birthday party!!
