After dropping my daughter off at school yesterday I decided to treat myself to a Shamrock Shake. Well, I thought that was what I was going to have until I saw the sign below as I pulled into the drive through. Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe, Chocolate Shamrock Shake, Shamrock Hot Chocolate, and Shamrock Mocha…oh my! I just had to try the Shamrock Mocha. Pretty sure the whole thing was gone by the time I got home which is only a few blocks away. I know this is only going to be around for a little while so I decided I was going to have to come up with my own copycat version. After several different tries (it was a tough job I tell you!), I finally figured out the perfect blend.

I found a carnation lapel pin from last year in out St. Patrick’s Day box and thought it would be cute to add it to the glass. Tie a bit of green ribbon to the stem of the glass and fastened the flower to the ribbon. Super easy way to dress up your drinks! I am pretty sure I got it at the dollar store.

I also found this glittered LUCKY banner I made for my daughter’s party several years ago. Love it when I discover old decorations…it’s like Christmas!
