Fun with St Patrick’s Day flowers
St Patrick’s Day is celebrated around the world and it is associated with several traditions as well as plenty of fun. Whether you plan on enjoying a pint or two at the local pub or you prefer a quiet evening at home, flowers will certainly help make this day even more festive. Spoil yourself, a loved one, or a friend with a green bouquet this St Patrick’s Day and spread the joy!
The first thing to remember when looking for St Patrick’s Day flowers is to search for a green bouquet or at least an arrangement with plenty of green. One lovely idea is to ask your florist for a bouquet of green roses and carnations. You can also add a few white chrysanthemums to this bouquet if you like.
Alternatively, if you prefer to stick with a certain type of flower, you could look for a bunch of lime green roses and pair them with dark green foliage. If you want to add some texture, you can also add green berries here and there. Bamboo is another great option when you are looking for something green and lucky.
If you want to send a gift that the recipient can enjoy for a long time, a potted plant could be just what you’re looking for. Choose a potted plant based on the recipient’s experience and how much time they have to care for a plant. For example, if the recipient does not spend much time at home, a cactus or succulent would suit their lifestyle best.
For those who are planning on attending or hosting a formal dinner for St Patrick’s Day, you might like to wear a corsage or boutonniere. The best flower to wear on this occasion is a green cymbidium orchid. You can even add this lovely flower to your hair if you prefer.
For kids, this occasion gives you another reason to get creative! Make green paper flowers and floral cards. Decorate your card with green flowers or even four-leaf clovers to wish somebody a Happy St Patrick’s Day!
