Now that the gifts have been opened, the food eaten, the games played and the mommy stories shared. The much-anticipated baby shower is over and now it’s time for the final step: Sending out thank you notes! I want to adequately thank my generous friends and family for helping celebrate this special milestone with me.

Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, I figure what better way to send out a thank you note than with a little “POT ‘O GOLD” since I’m one very LUCKY gal to have such amazing, beautiful people in my life!

I’m a huge Pinterest user and came upon this blog with the perfect saying and has “free” printable tags!

I purchased a box of thank you cards and personally handwritten each message to my guest using my calligraphy skills (which I’m still working on).

Here’s what you need to make these St. Patricks’ Day favors:

Clear Plastic Tubes (I found these on Amazon)
Butterfinger ‘Nest Egg’ candy (luckily Easter is also around the corner)
Giant bag of M&M’s
Printable Tags

Make sure you clean and dry your containers. Add your candies to your container (I put the Butterfinger at the bottom and then filled the rest with M&M’s to make it look like the rainbow).

Cut out your tags, punch a hole at the top, and use twine to tie them onto your favors.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day
