St Patricks Day Gifts / February 17, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins
We wear green and don t know why. We may live in communities that dye their rivers green or present bar patrons with green beer. Restaurants serve corned beef and cabbage amid leprechaun decorations or plastic pots-of-gold. This is a difficult dish to prepare: eat out! School children enjoy cupcakes of any flavor with green icing. Other snacks may be potato chips or potato sticks. Parties for St Patricks Day are sure to be decorated with green and white twisted streamers and four leaf clovers. Paper party goods are the only option for children s parties but some adult dinners feature Irish linen and good china.
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.
Also succulents don t use as much water and will last longer and their colors will be more vibrant. Another fact about succulent plants is that they last a long time as long as they are in well drained soil and watered regularly. They can thrive indoors as long as they have indirect sunlight. Here are a few ideas for table decorations for your St Patrick s Day party. Incorporate succulent plants with cymbidium orchids in a flower arrangement as seen above. The green aspect will be the succulents and to bring a bit of color in use a pink orchid in the arrangement for your St Patrick s Day decorations.
