The little plaid ribbon flags on the toothpicks of the corned beef sliders are to die for!  Another amazing gift Niki and Cathleen treated their guests to was chic gold necklaces.  I love the way they used the tartan-print suitcase to display them.

These ideas are all so amazing and all the guests at this Saint Patrick’s Day dinner certainly felt LUCKY to be invited!
