When I worked in a bridal shop a hundred years ago, green was the least favorite color for bridesmaids. However, when St. Patrick's Day comes around, we all looking for green.
It took a while to figure out how to fold the napkins, but I love learning and the napkins are a hit with people who haven't folded one.
I found these little Leprechauns at Michaels. I went in there looking for green bowls, but I found these guys and they looked so happy I had to have them.
I didn't really know the history of St. Patrick's Day so I looked it up. Living near New York City where the 1900's police force was practically all Irish, I should have known something more than that it appeared to be a drinking holiday.
I found this holiday has been celebrated for 1,000 years and that on St. Patrick's day, a restriction by the church in Ireland was lifted to allow the consumption of meat and the drinking of alcohol. I'm sure this turned into the proverbial give an inch, take a mile.
At my office, we'd take off early so we could go to the pub.
