Rainbows, Unicorns and Sweet Things

006531-R1-E007Lucky us….it’s March! And, that will bring celebrations for St Patrick’s Day (we’re all a little bit Irish, right?!) with lucky charms, shamrocks, rainbows and unicorns. So, if you are hosting a little gathering or just want to celebrate with your family, here are two of my favorite sources.

Sweet and Saucy Shop bakes the most beautiful treats, including cake pops and macarons. IMG_3455 IMG_6322IMG_9693Georgetown Cupcake is my go-to for delicious, elaborate cupcakes. And, if you don’t live in D.C., they ship beautifully and are sure to put a smile on the face of the recipient. Each month, they offer seasonal options and here’s a peek at what they have in store this month.Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 11.15.12 PM
