For this one we watched The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns.   More on the movie in a bit, as the real hit of this night was the food.  The decorations are a lot of fun too.

I scored this little banner from Target...

I had easy access to this little Halloween cauldron and it was a pot of gold for the day.

I never met a fun napkin I didn't like.

Shenanigans indeed!  I used command hooks to stick all that fun stuff to the shutters.

I dyed the kids' milk green, which is always a hit.

Now for dinner.  As for corned beef and cabbage... not my thing.  I decided to do an appetizers-for-dinner twist on Irish fare.  I must say the results were really hearty and so delicious!

I found a recipe for Irish Nachos.  So good y'all!  You can find the recipe here.

My favorite food of the evening was this Dubliner Dip.

We needed some color with all the potatoes, bread and cheese so I did a Pinterest-inspired fruit rainbow.  I love all the colors!

I had lots of fun dessert ideas in mind, but we had these cookies on hand from something else (plus pie from Pi Day so we didn't need any more sweets around) so I decided to go with them.  They look really festive on the shamrock plate.  Of course we listened to the St. Patrick's Day Radio on Pandora while we dined.  Finding music to fit your theme adds so much.

The movie is actually a two-part Hallmark mini series from 1999.  We watched it over two nights. It's interesting to say the least, but definitely fitting for this St. Patrick's Day weekend.  I don't think this movie will become an annual tradition but we sure did enjoy a little family-friendly leprechaun fun.  That's what we are all about!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, friends!
