Well here we are already, Day 5 of our St. Patrick’s Day Food and Fun. This week is all about Rainbows! It’s not too often that I see a rainbow in the sky, but when I do, it always brings a smile to my face. How about you?

We are kicking off this fun Rainbow Week with a little present for you! Charlotte, from The Paper Cupcake created the cutest Rainbow Printable Banner for you…and it’s FREE! Hang tight…keep reading…and I’ll share the printable at the end!

Last year, I shared several recipes with rainbow colors, the Rainbow Cupcakes and Rainbow Jello were definitely the most popular. And still are, so I thought it would be fun to put together a few more ideas with Rainbows, but this year kick it up a notch.

Do you remember the chalkboard on our Winter Mantel? Well, it’s proven once again to be such a fun decorating tool with the St. Patrick’s Day Mantel.

The Rainbow on the Mantel, really started with a vision from Doug this time, and then kind of evolved. We originally started the plan with a metal rod and some balloons, but after chatting a bit about how it would look and checking out the price of balloons, we changed our minds a bit and went with the Tissue Paper Flowers.

We kept the metal rod idea, but after trying to get the flowers to look right for quite awhile, we got rid of the rod and simply attached the flowers to the chalkboard.

Then came the writing on the chalkboard. Since the look of the St. Patrick’s Day Mantel was fun and whimsical, we decided to just randomly write words that are related to St. Patrick’s Day. I used the brilliant tip that Gina taught me when using chalk…wet the chalkboard and use wet chalk…simple!

What do you find at the end of a Rainbow? A Pot of Gold…of course…

We found the Pot filled with beads and gold at Walmart and the Leprechaun was left over from last year’s St. Patrick’s Day Mantel. Here is what I used to decorate with…
