St Patricks Day Gifts / February 18, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins
Small but fun. Should you have your eyes on a slightly smaller and less rowdy celebration of all that is Irish a dinner party among couples or a few friends will work well. If you are not skilled in the culinary arts like me call a caterer or local restaurant for plenty of corned beef potatoes rolls and greens. If a touch of class is desired opt for green champagne or wine instead of the beer. The Irish folk music is still a great idea as are the hats and party favors. For a smaller party consider slightly more romantic Irish tunes blended into the mix. Intimate and romantic.
On March 17 1762 Irish soldiers who served in the English military marched through New York City. The parade and music stirred their emotions and brought back memories of Ireland and fellow soldiers they had lost. Irish Americans began observing the holiday publicly in Boston and held the first St. Patrick s Day Parade (organized by the Charitable Irish Society) in New York City in 1766. Even today the St. Patrick Day parade is a mixture of religious beliefs and many people go to Ireland for the festivities fireworks and the parade. Parades take place in other places too: London Paris Rome Moscow Beijing Hong Kong Singapore as well as throughout the Americas.
There are some excellent choices for this holiday. If a fun first date that does not put too much pressure on romantic performance is to your liking St. Patricks Day can deliver. This holiday offers a lively lighthearted atmosphere that can make a date day or night one that will never be forgotten. In keeping with the green theme for your St. Patrick s Day party I thought I would provide you with some ideas for your dinner table decorations using succulent plants.
