St. Patrick’s Day – or the Feast of Saint Patrick, as it is known traditionally – is celebrated each year on March 17th. At Breen’s Florist, we recognize just how important this holiday is. That’s why we’ve created three very special bouquets that you can send to friends, family and loved ones in honor of St. Patrick. Read on to learn why green is the traditional color of this holiday, and what makes our “Luck of the Irish” bouquets so special.
What Green Represents to the Irish
Green is symbolic, not only because Ireland is a lush country, but also because the color represents Saint Patrick himself. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, and he is the man credited with bringing Christianity to the Irish. As he taught the Irish, he used the three leaves of the shamrock to represent the Holy Trinity. Consequently, both the shamrock and the color green became national symbols to the Irish.
Centuries went by, and the symbolism became stronger as various religious and political organizations throughout Ireland adopted green as their official color. Today, the shamrock is the national flower of Ireland, and green is recognized around the world as the color of St. Patrick and the Irish people.
Luck of the Irish Bouquets
St. Patrick’s Day is a fun and festive holiday, which is why we’ve pulled out the stops to create some beautifully green arrangements. Use them in your St. Patrick’s Day decorations or sent them to a loved one – either way, these bouquets are sure to spice up an already lively occasion!
The fun starts with “Gaeilge,” which is a bouquet of mixed green and white flowers including mums, carnations, tulips and more. To complete the look, we’ve placed these flowers in a beautiful green bubble bowl.
If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, try the “Alainn” arrangement. “Alainn” means “beautiful,” and with symbolic Bells of Ireland, white roses and tulips, that’s exactly what this bouquet is!
Finally, there’s “Seamroige,” which means “shamrock.” The “Seamroige” arrangement also features beautiful Bells of Ireland, but we’ve made this bouquet even more festive by adding bright white and yellow carnations. This arrangement also features tulips, daisies and other springtime favorites.
Any of these three bouquets will make a beautiful, memorable and symbolic gift for your favorite lad or lass.
