St Patricks Day Gifts / February 17, 2019 / Chris Burris
Hosting a dinner or party for any age group will be more politically correct when attention is given to actual cultural images. Celtic historical crafts and Gaelic lettered items as well as Celtic music will lend more accuracy. Folk dance or DVD s of popular dance could be offered for entertainment. More sophisticated guests might enjoy readings from the poetry of Ireland which is rich and varied. Most of us will descend into the habit of bad Irish accents and excessive imbibing. It is the American way. Don t drink and drive. What Is Saint Patricks Day? Saint Patrick is a patron saint of Ireland.
While it is true that February 14th is all about romance that particular holiday can sometimes put too much pressure on first-time daters. Needless to say it can prove more than awkward to head out on a first date on the day dedicated to lovers and passion. If you are not sure you want to deal with the kind of pomp and circumstance that goes along with a Valentines Day first date wait a month and you will not be disappointed. When you select the greenest of holidays as the backdrop for you first date you will find festive celebrations abound that can take the trouble out of planning and put the emphasis more on fun rather than romancing too heavily.
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.
