We are so excited about today! We love the idea of Bloom being a place to share ideas of enriching things to do with your children. And we wanted to make it even easier for you to implement those ideas.

Introducing...the Bloom Shop!

The first items in the shop are for a St. Patrick's Day celebration.

Here's how it works. We have a St. Pat's scavenger hunt all ready for you. (And it's the cutest thing ever--did you know that Em has a gift for rhyming couplets?!) All you have to do is print out the clues and hide them in the designated areas around your home.

Next, prepare a treat for the scavenger hunt prize. We suggest our mint chocolate chip cupcakes with our St. Pat's cupcake toppers and wrappers.

Let's review:
1. Print out your clues (get them HERE).

2. Hide clues around your house.

3. Print out your cupcake toppers (get them HERE) and cupcake wrappers (get them HERE) for your mint chocolate chip cupcakes (recipe HERE).

4. Enjoy a St. Pat's scavenger hunt with your children!

{****Notes: We'd like to thank our designer, Emily Yates, for her beautiful work. She turns all of our ideas into reality! Also, we hope your jaws drop when you see our prices. We wanted to bring you quality design for a price everyone can afford. We love you and are so grateful for your support of Bloom. Cheers!****}

Remember, St. Patrick's day is this coming Thursday, the 17th! We hope it's magical!

Very cute!

My husband and I love to research how holidays originated and we found out that St. Patrick is honored for dedicating his life to spreading the gospel in Ireland. He was born to a wealthy family in Britain and at the age of 17 kidnapped by Irish raiders and kept there as a slave. He says that the Lord told him how to escape and when he got back to Britain he went into the Church as a profession. He then returned to Ireland - the land where he had been enslaved - and taught the gospel of Jesus Christ. HOW INSPIRING IS THAT?! Ever since learning this we (even though we are not Catholic) we try to celebrate St. Patricks day by doing something "missionary" related. We are Christian so we try to bear our testimonies to someone or each other, provide some kind of service for someone etc.

We still wear green and do fun family things together but we like incorporating the deeper meaning of an often light-hearted holiday into our celebrations.

I think I'll make some of those cupcakes though SO good!
