St. Patty’s Day Green Flowers

How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Although there are approximately 36 million people of Irish descent living in the United States, this is a holiday for everyone! There are many customs and traditions that have become a part of our culture – for instance, most of us will find at least one green article of clothing to wear on March 17th to celebrate the day.  We may find a lunch place serving corned beef and cabbage, or perhaps watch a local parade to enjoy the sights, sounds, and festivity of the holiday. But for those who wish to decorate with a bit of Emerald Isle inspiration, or to send Irish friends a gorgeous bouquet or arrangement, a call to The Flower Bucket is all that is needed. We have assembled a selection of custom designs to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in exquisite style – you’ll find we have all you need to paint San Antonio green!

Our designers have created many diverse arrangements in white and green, all perfect for the day. Roses, lilies, green chrysanthemums and alstroemeria combine for some of our most unique arrangements.

Did You Know? St. Patrick was born Maewynn Succat, and he was British, not Irish. But he lived his adult life as a Christian missionary to Ireland, and he loved Ireland as much as the people loved him. When he died, the country asked the Catholic Church to honor him with a feast day, and it became a national day of remembrance for his adopted home. The holiday made it to our shores when waves of immigrants came to the United States in the 1700’s and 1800’s.

St. Patrick’s Day is more of a party than a religious observance these days – and it is celebrated by nearly everyone, not just those of Irish descent. Whether you have Gaelic roots or simply love the festivity, call The Flower Bucket and surround yourself with the luck of the Irish, by way of beautiful green floral designs.
