Irish Birthday party
Irish step dancer costume
Several years ago, for my sister's tenth birthday, we did an Irish-themed party since she loves Ireland as well as all things the color green!
Our Mum decorated by draping shamrock fabric over the window valance, and placing a bit of ''rainbow'' over the fan! The birthday girl loved it all. :)
Irish woodland party table
The table was decorated as an Irish woodland, with a real log in the center, little handmade gnomes wearing green shirts, a green teddy bear waving an Irish flag, little woodland creatures such as foxes and rabbits, and more.
(note: Norwegian flags stand for the fact that Ireland was first settled by Vikings.
Thanks to P.B for pointing out that many Irish inherited their signature brilliant color of
red hair from the Norse!)
I made this step dancer costume for my sister's doll Kirsten. In this picture, it is modelled by
a more Irish-looking doll. :)
On the birthday, even the weather co-operated with the theme by acting very wet and green!
(rare for the middle of September in Missouri!)
Of course on the birthday, we watched a video of Riverdance. (which is amazing for the most part!)
And the birthday cake was.....
A log cake!
You can easily make this delightful cake; there are dozens of recipes online!
