Shamrock shakes are a popular menu item in March, popping up in fast casual chains and restaurants leading up to the 17th. Make your own tasty drinks by blending ice cream, peppermint, and green food coloring. Serve in a Ball or Kerr pint jar and line the rim with colored sprinkles for an added touch.

Heritage Collection Flower Centerpiece
Add a green touch to centerpieces by using Spring Green Heritage Collection Jars in place of vases. Fill with delicate baby’s breath flowers and wrap with twine for an easy decoration. These are also great to keep and refresh come Easter!
