St Patricks Day Gifts / February 18, 2019 / Kelly Roberson
Do the Irish celebrate Saint Patrick s Day? Saint Patricks Day is a holiday for the Irish people. It is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland Montserrat and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In the rest of Canada the United Kingdom Australia the United States and New Zealand it is widely celebrated but is not officially a holiday. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for thousands of years. Ireland s cities all hold their own parades and festivals. In recent years the celebrations in Dublin have been extended to a week-long event called St Patrick s Festival! Saint Patrick s Day is celebrated worldwide by Irish people and increasingly by non-Irish people (usually in Australia North America and Ireland) as well.
Using wheat grass is another idea incorporating green table decorations at your St Patrick s Day party. Use wheat grass on your dinner table and then place votive candles sporadically within the grass. At the 5th Annual SAG Awards we did this type of flower arrangement on the tables. Be sure to place something underneath the wheat grass to keep the table dry. Also I suggest you use tea light votive candles to ensure there is plenty of room from the flame to the top of the glass votive candle holder. Why not add a bit of color to your wheat grass arrangement with succulent plants? You can place Zwartkop which has hues of purple within the grass.
