The Best Christmas Present For The Hostess

Organizing and executing a holiday party is a major undertaking. As a result, the host who generously invites a large group into their home should be rewarded with a one-of-a-kind gift. Consider one of the following beautiful and creative Christmas party gift ideas to show your gratitude and stand out from the crowd of typical bottles of wine and meat and cheese boxes.


Christmas Candle 



The perfect centerpiece is required for every Christmas party table. If you won't be able to attend the party, a festive centerpiece is ideal. With a beautiful centerpiece to adorn their table or mantle, let your host know you'll be there in spirit.

Floral arrangements an ideal gift



At any time of year, flower arrangements make an excellent hostess gift. You're sure to find just the right combination of flowers, greens, and decorations to suit your host's taste and sense of style with so many options and varieties of flowers, greens, and decorations. Don't be afraid to think outside the Christmas box and consider your host's panache.

Christmas plant

Poinsettia plants in white, red, or white and red are a traditional gift for a holiday party host. During the holiday season, they will bring smiles for several weeks. Alternatively, you could give your host a gift that will last a little longer. Gifts that keep on giving include dish gardens, succulents, bonsai plants, and orchids. Consider these hardy plants as a constant reminder of your gratitude and friendship.

Christmas Tree

Any arrangement of flowers and greenery is striking. A Christmas tree with blue delphiniums, white lilies, or pink carnations, on the other hand, is a refreshing change of pace. Traditional red, green, and gold colors will, of course, make an appearance.

Christmas Cakes



It's impossible to have too many desserts at a Christmas party. Holidaymakers are so focused on pleasing their guests that they often forget about their personal favorites. What host would not be happy to receive a coconut cake or a red velvet cake in the mail?

Flowers, plants, and other pleasures galore. There are so many creative gifts you can give to the host of a Christmas party. From the standard to the very out of the ordinary, look for a present that truly reflects the host's personality.

Autumn Colors in Your Homes

Autumn Colors in Your Homes

The traditional autumn season in Ireland paints hills, valleys, and cities in vibrant hues. The best and boldest displays emerge as a result of a mild winter - with a little snow - a spring with normal rainfall, and a summer that is not too hot and humid. Then, in September, the weather should be cool and crisp, with sunnier and warmer days for a beautiful change of leaves. If you have the opportunity to visit Ireland in the fall, do so, but there are plenty of ways to bring this stunning display of autumn colors into your home.

Decorate the coffee table

Do you usually put artwork or books on your coffee table? When autumn arrives, you may want to move them out of the way and replace them with a seasonal candle or two perfumes to infuse the room with soothing scents. An imposing bouquet of flowers inspired by the leaves can serve as a focal point to delight the eye: an arrangement with many oranges, reds, and yellows evokes the Irish landscape. If you use a taller vase, it will resemble the trunk of a tree, complete with colorful flowers on top.



If you want a stunning dining room centerpiece, look for flowers in a vase or basket that are placed lower in the vase or basket – you still want to be able to see your guests at the table! When planning a fall-themed dinner, consider using a combination of flowers and candles for some seasonally appropriate lighting and color to create a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere.


Choose a color for each collection and room

Small bouquets on occasional tables or space bookshelves bring the outdoors inside. Choose one color for each collection and room for a more subtle seasonal look. For instance, in the living room, place orange roses in small vases, bright yellow flowers in the kitchen to cheer you up while you cook, and deep, ruby red bouquets in the bedroom.



Flowers are a lovely way to bring the colors of the season into your home. Be creative and don't limit yourself to just the living room – you could even brighten up the bathroom with a small vase filled with a couple of fall flowers. Whatever the case may be, take in as much color as you can. It's a once-a-year treat that everyone can appreciate.

Flowers are a wonderful way to show someone how much they mean to you, to commemorate a special occasion, and even to send a secret message using flower language.

But which flowers are the best for birthdays, and which ones should be included in the bouquet you want to send to the people you care about the most?

We'll discuss the best flowers for a birthday girl, a milestone birthday, and even the stems you should include in a coworker's birthday bouquet in this post.

Then, to make someone's birthday even more incredible, learn where you can order the most beautiful fresh flowers online.

For your Love

You're well aware that you must purchase flowers for your girlfriend's birthday celebration.

Look for a birthday arrangement that includes red roses, the ultimate symbol of romance, no matter who you love. Sunflowers are a great way to remind your loved one how much joy they bring to your life.

Look for an arrangement with Red Tulips, which represent a declaration of love, if you want to tell someone how you feel about them for the first time on their birthday.

For Colleagues and Teachers

On their birthdays, you want to make your coworkers feel special, but you also want to send the right message.

Teachers and professors should be sent sage, which means wisdom.

Pansies are a great choice for sending to coworkers because they represent positive thoughts. Goldenrods, a symbol of good fortune and corporate gifting, are ideal for coworkers pursuing a promotion.

And what about that coworker who is always patient with you despite the fact that you don't deserve it? Send chrysanthemums as a token of appreciation for someone who is always willing to assist you.

For Friends

Make sure to include yellow roses in your birthday bouquet because they are the ultimate symbol of friendship.
Geraniums and ivy are also symbols of everlasting friendship.

Choose zinnias for faraway friends, as they indicate that you're thinking of people who can't always be near you.

For a Family Member’s Birthday

Are you looking for flowers for your mother's birthday or want to send the perfect birthday bouquet to your brother who lives in another county?

Don't be afraid to use a lot of color in your arrangement, such as orange hydrangeas, pink carnations, or even orange gerberas.

The History and the Meaning of the ‘Happy Birthday’ Song

The History and the Meaning of the ‘Happy Birthday’ Song

Our series "All About Birthdays" brings you fun facts on everything birthday, from why we celebrate turning one year older to discovering birthday traditions around the world.

“Happy Birthday to You” is one of the most well-known songs in the world, thanks to its simple lyrics and catchy six-note melody. It's a song that almost everyone knows because it's sung aloud every year before the guest of honor blows out the birthday cake candles.

It has been translated into at least 18 languages and is played at millions of birthday parties each year for people of all ages. Marilyn Monroe sang it to President John F. Kennedy, and it even made it into space when the crew of the Apollo IX sang it during their mission in 1969.

However, if you look a little deeper into the history of this classic piece of American music, you'll discover that it was protected by global copyright for decades. Anyone who wanted to use the song commercially — for example, in a film, a public performance, or even a musical greeting card — had to pay a fee to music publisher Warner Chappell Music. Every year, the royalties brought in about $2 million for the company.


How ‘Happy Birthday to You’ became part of the public domain

Jennifer Nelson, a filmmaker, was among those who paid the fee — $1,500 to secure the rights for her documentary about the song and its history — but something about the copyright bothered her. Jennifer filed a class-action suit in 2013, which resulted in “Happy Birthday to You” becoming public domain in 2015.

“The whole thing was one big adventure, and one thing led to the next, which led to a three-year lawsuit and, ultimately, the liberation of the ‘Happy Birthday' song,” Jennifer says.

So, who wrote "Happy Birthday to You," and how did it become the subject of a copyright dispute? Jennifer's award-winning short film "Saving Happy Birthday," commissioned by The Guardian, contains the answers.

From ‘Good Morning to All’ to ‘Happy Birthday to You’

Mildred J. Hill was teaching kindergarten at a school in her hometown of  Kentucky in 1883, where her sister, Patty Smith Hill, was the principal. The sisters worked together to create an easy-to-sing and easy-to-remember song for teachers to use when welcoming young students to class each day. Mildred composed the melody and Patty wrote the lyrics for the song "Good Morning to All."


Good morning to you,

Good morning to you,

Good morning, dear children,

Good morning to all!


Jennifer discovered that the sisters had changed their lyrics for a birthday party several years later. She visited the Little Loom House in Kentucky, the Hill family's summer cabin where the song "Happy Birthday to You" was born, as part of her filming.



“The Hills would have parties and strawberry festivals at the cabins, and they would enjoy the coolness of the woods,” Jennifer explains. “One summer, it was the birthday of one of the Hill sisters' friends, Lysette Hest's, and Patty and Mildred decided to celebrate her birthday by singing a song.”

“The Hills replaced the lyrics for a song they wrote in 1883 called ‘Good Morning to All' with ‘Happy Birthday to You,' using the same melody,” Jennifer explains. “It was a hit!”

Although the Hill sisters had no idea how popular their song would become, Jennifer says they had a good idea of how much people liked it.

“The Hills were part of the kindergarten movement — the first time that young children went to school — and presented their book, Song Stories for the Kindergarten, which featured the ‘Happy Birthday' song, at the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893.” The Hills' songbook's copyright expired in 1921.

The song's fame, on the other hand, was just getting started. Jennifer claims that by the 1930s, "Happy Birthday to You" had appeared in the first Western Union singing telegram as well as Irving Berlin's Broadway musical, As Thousands Cheer.

Jessica Hill, the third Hill sister, entered the picture at this point. Jessica Hill secured a new copyright for the birthday song in 1935, working with the Clayton F. Summy Company, publisher of her older sisters' songbook.

According to the laws in effect at the time, this copyright would have expired by 1991, allowing the song to enter the public domain. Several copyright extension acts, however, extended the rights until at least 2030.


Time to celebrate

By the time Jennifer entered the picture, Warner Chappell Music, which had purchased the publishing company that owned the rights to the song for $25 million in 1988, was making $2 million in royalties from "Happy Birthday to You" every year.

However, federal judge George H. King ruled in 2015 that the 1935 copyright obtained by the Summy Company granted rights only to certain arrangements of the music for the piano, not to the song itself.

As a result, King ruled that Warner Chappell Music did not own the song's rights and declared it to be in the public domain. In the settlement, the publishing company agreed to pay $14 million, effectively ending its copyright claim and ability to collect royalties. As a result, Jennifer received her $1,500 refund.

“Happy Birthday to You” has come a long way since its inception as a song intended to welcome children to school to becoming the most recognized song in the English language. You might be inspired to belt it out with even more gusto at the next birthday party you attend now that you know a little more about its history.
