"Top of the Morning to You"
"And the rest of the day to yourself".
Saint Patrick's Day marks the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish. In Ireland it is a modest day of religious observance, culminating in a feast. However, in the face of their ill treatment, Irish Catholics in America decided to throw huge, proud parties on the 17th March to celebrate their heritage and show pride in who they were. In modern day, it's a day of festivals, parades and parties.
Leprechauns are actually one reason you're supposed to wear green on St. Patrick's Day—or risk getting pinched! The tradition is tied to folklore that says wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns, which like to pinch anyone they can see.
Whether you're Irish or not, you can celebrate the day with flowers in an abundance of green color palettes from Forest, to Chartreuse, Seafoam, Moss, Fern, Pistachio, Hunter, Mint, Jade Kelly, Emerald, Sage, and Lime to name a few.
Nothing says Spring like green, so give your creative palette a shot of good luck with green mojito hydrangeas, green mist, green trick dianthus, green gerpoms, kermit button mums, bells of Ireland, hypericum, cymbidium orchids, and more.
Here's a little inspiration of green:
"May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.”
