St Patricks Day Gifts / February 15, 2019 / Rachel Gates
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.
Or you can also use a pretty ribbon and tie clusters of succulent plants such as Echeveria and then place them on the table. Surround the Echeveria with black rocks to add texture and contrast to your St Patrick s Day decorations. Another idea is to place a row of simple one potted Carmen succulent plants down the center of the table for décor. Then incorporate a combination of green and white votive candles along with pillar candles. This centerpiece will bring a sophisticated look to your St Patricks Day party table decorations while keeping within the green theme. According to the old saying everyone is Irish on St. Patricks Day.
