St. Patty’s Day Celebration Ideas and $50 Oriental Trading Gift Card Giveaway


Looking to be a little more festive this St. Patrick’s Day?  You are in luck because Oriental Trading has hundreds of St. Patrick’s Day accessories, party supplies, crafts, and much more.  Oriental trading has a wide variety of green party supplies that work well with any St. Patrick’s Day theme.  They also have several party supplies that are specifically designed for St. Patty’s Day such as the St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow plates and shamrock stir sticks featured here.


My guests will each grab a seat to claim these St. Patrick’s Day goodies.  Each place setting consists of a stress toy frappe, wrist band, green fortune cookie, stir stick, as well as a fork and plates to eat more festive foods.

The green and gold sequin fedora and St. Patty’s Day wrist bands are fun and easy ways to dress up for the day.  The fedora fits myself as well as my kids.  The wristbands will fit adults better than young children.  The wristbands can stretch far enough to wrap around a sippy cup so my daughter likes to use her wristband to decorate her cups.


Oriental Trading has a great selection of toys and treats that will have your guests feeling lucky to receive.  The pom pom assortment pack from Oriental Trading consists of a rainbow of colors that are a fun and festive way to appeal to all your guests.  Oriental Trading does offer packs of pom poms that are all one color so you could simply order a set of green if that would suite your St. Patrick’s Day party more.


These green coins make great party favors as well as décor.  One side of each coin says, “four leaf clover for good luck” with the flip side having a four leaf clover on it.  I will be hiding these so my kids and their friends can go on a hunt for the leprechaun’s treasure.  These Good Luck coins will be providing a wealth of entertainment for our festivities!

Daily Goodie Box: It’s More Than Just Free Samples!


I recently became a member to the Daily Goodie Box.  It is free to join!  After becoming a member I received a Goodie Box filled with full size samples.  I love trying new things so I am so in love with this idea.  The Daily Goodie Box is a great way to try new brands and products.  This box is truly full of goodies!  You get a wide variety of products to try and they are not itty bitty samples sizes either.  The Daily Goodie Box I recieved contained coffee, popcorn, toothpaste, laundry detergent, and much more!

DSC_1050 DSC_1056DSC_1077 DSC_1105

Our Goodie Box was filled with a wide variety of products and flavors.  This is a great way to encourage your family to try new things!  My kids loved the raspberry Fig Bar.  I managed to sneak a few bites and the raspberry flavor was excellent.  The Gary Poppins lite popcorn is a great healthy snack. I am definitely going to try some of the other popcorn flavors soon.  I personally love the Xylichew spearmint gum I received in the goodie box. The flavor is really refreshing and the packaging is convenient for me to keep in my purse.

DSC_1073 DSC_1071 DSC_1070 DSC_1058

This was my first experience with Nellie’s Natural Laundry Soda and I am really happy with its performance so far.  The bag comes with a scooper so you can easily measure out the needed amount to wash a load of laundry.  This sample bag includes enough laundry soda for 15 regular size loads of laundry!  the Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste is free of color which I personally enjoy.  We tried the blackcrurrant flavor.  My kids don’t mind it but they still prefer strawberry flavor more.  Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste is available in several flavors as well as a flavor free option.


Coffee Blocks Better Butter Coffee is made up of instant coffee, clarified butter from grass fed cows and other organic ingredients.  Simply add a mixture of hot and room temp water and mix to enjoy a cup of butterlicious coffee.   This cup of butter coffee perked me right up.  It is an interesting twist on traditional coffee that was fun to try and easy to prepare.  Tip: if you have curious kids around let them help prepare it.  My kids loved getting to look at it the coffee at different stages.

3DLightFX Star Wars R2D2 NightLight


3DLightFX has created some seriously cool wall décor for kids and collectors.  The 3DLightFX Star Wars R2D2 recently busted its way into my son’s bedroom and has been a smash hit with everyone who sets eyes on it.  This R2D2 mounted on the wall is truly eye catching.  It does not look like your average wall décor.  The robot is mounted flush to the wall and appears to be coming through it at an angle.  This makes an impact on anyone who steps into the room.  The fun of 3DLightFX wall décor is not limited to Star Wars fans as they offer a great selection of characters as well as sports themed lights.

IMG_3875 IMG_3874 IMG_3876

A wall decal provides the look of your wall being busted and the decal conveniently marks the two places where the screws should go to mount the light on the wall.  The light itself is light weight yet sturdy.  The light feature is battery operated leaving the 3D light to be cordless.


My boys are big Star Wars fans and they love this 3D light.  Two different spots on R2D2 send off a soft glow of light that can be turned on manually or set to timer.  The light is not very strong but we didn’t expect it to be.  We ordered the 3D light more for the look than to function as a night light.  However, the fact it lights up does at to the fun. My kids think the R2D2 is extremely cool looking and all of their friends love it as well.  The idea of your favorite Star Wars character busting into the room has great appeal to the kids.

Buy It!

Star Wars 3D Wall Nightlights including the R2D2 are available for purchase in Target stores as well as online at Target.

Sukey’s House!: with Sukey Molloy & Friends


Sukey Molloy has been entertaining children for many years and her work has been honored with Parents’ Choice, NAPPA, Children’s Music Web, Prefered Choice, Creative Child, and Mom’s Choice Awards for over a decade.  My kids have been enjoying Sukey’s Circle! for years so we were excited to find out that Sukey and friends recently released a new DVD, Sukey’s House!   This DVD consists of 18 songs live from Sukey’s living room and 2 of these songs have yet to be recorded on CD!  Volumes 1, 2, and 3 contain 1 hour and 13 minutes of fun songs perfect for young ears.  Sukey’s happy face and gentle voice make a warm and welcome source of children’s entertainment.  My kids instantly feel comfortable with Sukey’s presence when she is talking or singing on our television.  She often reminds me of my son’s kindergarten teacher who I used to call the child whisperer.  She can silence a room and command complete attention without ever raising her voice.

Sukey’s House! DVD features classics such as Itsy Bitsy Spider and Twinkle Little Star yet contains many more new fun songs for your little ones to enjoy and memorize. If you little ones love Sukey, be sure to check out Sukey’s Circle! as well.  Sukey’s Circle! shows air on BabyFrist TV, Happy Kids (Roku), and YouTube.

Sukey’s House with Sukey Molloy & Friends Volumes 1,2, and 3 is available for purchase online at several stores including Target and Amazon.
