St. Patrick's Day Flowers!

Sean MurphyComment

St. Patrick's Day is a celebration of Irish and Irish American culture throughout the United States and Ireland, celebrations include parades and huge displays of the color green, in Chicago they dye the river green!

Decorate your St. Paddy's Day party with emerald green flowers!

Ever wondered why people pinch you for not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day? Wearing green symbolizes the Irish identity and to make up for the past when they could have been hanged for wearing green or speaking Gaelic. During Ireland rule under the English, Irish people were not allowed to wear the color green, as the color represented Ireland. Now, everyone is "Irish" for the day and we wear green in support.

St. Patrick’s Day flowers are a great way to celebrate the holiday, along with the corned beef and cabbage and a Guinness of course! Vibrant arrangements of green flowers are the perfect St. Patrick’s Day decorations. Although it might be hard to find shamrock or a four-leaf clover this St. Paddy’s Day, an arrangement of green orchids or roses tied with a green ribbon will lend the same festive spirit to your St. Patrick's Day party.

Many forget that today is a religious observance. It has become the norm, to wear foam hats in the shape of shamrock, "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" buttons, to dance all-night to Irish music (fueled by copious amounts of green beer!). Fr. Vincent Twomey, an Irish Catholic priest, expressed concern about the secularization of St. Patrick's Day. He said, "It is time to reclaim St. Patrick's Day as a church festival." He questioned the need for "mindless alcohol-fueled revelry" and concluded that "it is time to bring the piety and the fun together."

We wish the luck of the Irish to you all and that you discover a leprechaun and a pot-of-gold at the end of a rainbow! Here is an Irish blessing just for you...

  • May the road rise up to meet you.
  • May the sun shine warm upon your face,
  • And rains fall soft upon your fields.
  • And until we meet again,
  • May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
