Happy Hump Day, Ash Wednesday, and the day after Mardi Gras! So much to celebrate today! Because it’s the first of the month, I’m doing a quick round up off all the potential celebrations coming up this month. It’s a big month, so let’s get to it.
First, the whole month is dedicated to women’s history, and International Women’s Day is on March 8th. You know I couldn’t really find a party that celebrates this day or month, so I may just have to throw one myself.
How fun would it be to host a girls day with a historical flair celebrating strong women in history who’ve done great things? I’m thinking a ladies lunch where each place setting is named after a women in history with some interesting facts about her. Or you could have a spa day with all of your girlfriends. Or have a sleepover with your girl friends and watch some historical movies about women.
Next up is of course St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th. It’s such an interesting holiday for all ages, right? Adults get to drink a lot of green beer and kids wear green to school and almost have permission to pinch anyone who isn’t in green. Weird!
This St. Patrick’s Day party speaks to both the adults and the kids with just the right amount of green. I love the ideas on dressing up the cupcakes and desserts with gold coins and shamrocks.
Shortly after St. Patrick’s Day is the first day of Spring on March 20th. Who isn’t ready for spring and warmer temperatures? I know I am, unfortunately, we had snow yesterday. Oh Colorado!
I found two really fun Spring Fling parties that would be a great reason to celebrate spring. They both have a ton of bright colors and fun ideas.
This party has a lot of little spring details that are great, and I’m loving that spring fling banner. How about that faux grass to really dress up this food station? It totally screams spring!
This brightly colored party is perfect for spring. That Spring backdrop is entirely made of jelly beans! How cool, and cost effective, right? I also love that this party incorporates flowers by planting some in those little terracotta pots. That would be the perfect favor for your guests at your spring fling party.
Lastly, this party isn’t technically in March since the finals are scheduled for April 1-2, but March Madness is a great thing to celebrate this month. I love that this party is geared towards girls with plenty of orange colors, basketball themed snacks, and the most adorable EOS lip balm party favor.

I thought I’d throw in a monthly recipe for March too. Green onions and leeks are really in season now, and leeks are something I’ve only cooked with one time. They were really good when I did, so I’m excited to try this recipe too. Click on the photo caption to get the full recipe, but I love that it’s a one pan meal that only takes about 30 minutes.
