Top Four St. Patrick’s Day Giftsby Shelby Shy on March 12, 2012 at 10:41 am
Don’t we all want the luck of the Irish? Why not send some Saint Patrick’s Day luck to friends and family through the gift of flowers.
Here are four top St. Patrick Day gift ideas.
Mixed Green Floral Arrangement
You can’t go wrong with a monochromatic design of green flowers. They just scream “Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.” A great combination of green flowers is green hydrangeas, green gladiolas, green calla lilies and green equisetum.
This could be stating the obvious, but what better way to give the luck of the Irish than by sending a lucky bamboo plant?
You can find them in your local flower shops or greenhouse. River rocks around its base or placed in a bamboo container give the lucky bamboo a unique look.
Want something unique and funky to welcome friends to your big St. Patrick’s Day party? Ask your florist to float green cymbidium orchids and green equisetum under water in large clear glass cylinders. Talk about an icebreaker.
Yellow and Green Flowers
Instead of going all green, add a burst of yellow. A green container filled with a bouquet of yellow flowers — such as yellow roses, yellow Asiatic lilies, yellow daisies — looks festive with green button poms and green carnations.
Now it’s your turn…what is your favorite green floral arrangement?
