St Patrick's Day Tea Party with a SUGARLICIOUS GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to a CRAZY fun St Patrick's Day
Inspired Tea Party Tuesday!

I will be sharing some fun things from blogland
and a few ideas of my own and a 
SUGARLICIOUS giveaway so read on friends.
First up, let's start the tea party with some out of this world neat Shamrock Tea Sandwiches!
When I saw these amazing cucumber sandwiches my 
jaw hit the floor, I was in LOVE!

Please visit Will Cook For Smiles and tell her how great this is!

I am bringing these St Patty's Cupcakes to tea this week.



I used my edible printer and backed the image to fondant.
..........easy, whimsical and so fun.  
I downloaded the images from Hopscotch Studios.

Next, let's DECORATE for our Tea Party with some fun St Patty's Printables. Check out these awesome designs I purchased
for Sophia's Birthday Party this weekend.
I thought this set was amazing and quite a DEAL!


Photos via Etsy




Get them for yourself right Here!

I also personally think I need to get this 
fun Shamrock Tea Set from Tea Pots & More Online Store.  

I LOVE THIS SET!


And last but not least for our St Patty's Tea
this week, Sophia and I made some decorated 
St Patty's Marshmallows this weekend using edible food writers.
Inspired as ALWAYS by Meaghan 

That is a purple butterfly sticker on her face to match her purple coat!!


Meaghan recently released her book, Sugarlicious
which you can buy HERE.
It is FULL of great and easy to do sweet ideas.



I will be GIVING AWAY a copy this week in honor
of Sophia who is a HUGE decorated cookie blog fan
and LOVES to use edible writers on marshies!!

We have made many a memory and had many laughs
doing these easy, quick and fun edible crafts.  
Thanks Meaghan.
