St Patricks Day Gifts / February 16, 2019 / Blanche Durham
A major parade takes place in Dublin and in most other Irish towns and villages. The three largest parades of recent years have been held in Dublin New York and Birmingham England. Parades also take place in other centers London Paris Rome Moscow Beijing Hong Kong Singapore and throughout the Americas. In the United States St. Patrick s Day would not be St. Patrick s Day unless the Chicago River is dyed green. Also St. Paddy s Day has little religious or historical significance. Established in Boston in 1737 it is essentially a time to put on a "Kiss Me I m Irish" button and parade drunken through the streets singing a mangled version of "Danny Boy" in celebration of one s real or imagined Irish ancestry.
Remember St. Patricks Day falls on a Monday this year so a date request for this night is likely to surprise instantly. Excellent ways to go for the ask out include sending flowers with an invitation attached having a festive holiday gift basket with a formal invitation included delivered or simply picking up the phone and asking in your sweetest voice. Step 2. Set the menu. Unless you are really good in the kitchen I suggest picking up the phone and talking to a local restaurant about a menu. You can go with traditional Irish such as stew or corned beef or whatever happens to suit your tastes.
Daily we are reminded about our environment and the importance of recycling reusing and reducing everything we use. Florists and restaurants are now getting on board with this mantra as well. Recently I have noticed various restaurants using succulent plants as table decorations on their dining room tables. Bar arrangements and front desk floral arrangements are incorporating succulents as well. According to Sherene Hulugalle the idea of using succulent plants for table decorations is that once the flowers fade the succulents can be re-planted and will keep growing.
