St Patricks Day Gifts / February 17, 2019 / Eve Callahan
He was the grandson of a priest and the son of a tax collector. As a teen in the early 400 s Patrick was captured and brought over from Scotland to be a slave in pagan Ireland. For six years he slaved as a shepherd herding pigs and sheep and began to have religious visions. While spending time in prayer Patrick found himself retreating back to the God he had learned about when he was younger. Inspired by a dream he successfully escaped his bondage and went back to England traveling throughout the region. How did it begin? Irish immigrants coming to America brought their love of Saint Patrick with them.
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.
If you are not quite at this point consider a nightcap of Irish coffee in front of a fire or candlelight or even green champagne to toast to good fortune. If you take the right steps you can turn St. Patricks Day into one of the most romantic holidays going. The festive atmosphere incredible food and beautiful music that surround this day do lend themselves to romance if you use your imagination to make it so. Any night can be perfect for a first date but if your idea is to ask a special someone out on a really unique occasion you cannot go wrong with St. Patricks Day. Few holidays offer a livelier backdrop for a date than this one.
