Saint Patrick’s Day:
Coffee in bed, as a matter of fact, is my idea of a great start to a Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration. A chocolate croissant might not seem like traditional fare, but Saint Patrick did attend seminary in France. Italian aqua, well again, Saint Patrick was from Britain and at that time it was part of the Roman Empire. The elements on the breakfast tray have both shamrocks and a harp which are emblems of Ireland. Why not have a wee bit of fun and enjoy coffee in bed this Saint Patrick’s Day? It is easy to tweak the breakfast tray to accommodate any holiday: first start with the basic elements (flower jars, creamer and sugar bowls, water glasses and a tray) then add a few holiday specific elements, such as, coffee mugs, napkins, flowers, and any small decor items that fit into the grouping.

Born 387 A.D. in Britain. St. Patrick became a priest and moved to Ireland where he baptized thousands and opened many monasteries. He is most notably remembered for spreading Christianity across the islands.
Emblems of Ireland:
On St. Patrick’s Day many people dress up in green, wear Irish emblems, eat Irish food and some enjoy Irish beverages. With this in mind, what do those emblems and traditions represent?
Possibly the widest recognized emblem of Ireland is the shamrock. St. Patrick used it as an illustration for the Christian Holy Trinity.
With its distinctive feature of the added ring they were usually carved from stone for this reason there are still some examples still standing today.
The traditional Irish Claddagh is a symbol of friendship, love and loyalty. Usually this emblem is made into jewelry and given as a ring namely to the one you love.
The Irish harp is one of the oldest national emblems in the world. Still recognized today.
The Irish fiddle dates back several hundred years and is one of the important instruments in traditional Irish music. By all means it is a violin, but what differentiates it is the style in which it is played.
The brooch is an example of astounding craftsmanship made sometime between 650 to 750 A.D.
