St. David’s Day is on March 1st and celebrates the Patron Saint of Wales, St. David. This is a day to mark Wales and Welsh culture. There are many parades held with the largest being in Cardiff where it is perfect to wave a Wales Hand Held Flag and concerts are held in pubs and clubs. School concerts also take place where singing is the main focus and children often wear traditional costumes. The national symbols of Wales are leeks and daffodils and these pinned onto clothes.
You do not have to be in Wales to enjoy the festivities of St. David’s Day. There are Welsh Food Festivals held and many restaurants offer Welsh menus. Whether you are commemorating this day by having a Welsh themed party or going to a pub, bar or restaurant we have great Welsh themed party products to add to the atmosphere. Welsh Flags are the perfect way to start, we have different sizes to suit your venue and needs and our flag range also includes a Welsh Table Flag which make ideal table decorations and a Hand Held Flag. Wales Bunting is always a popular choice to put up at a Welsh Party as are Inflatable Hands which are always good fun.

World Book Day is on 2nd March and is a fantastic way to engage children into the world of books and reading. There are loads of events taking place in schools, nurseries, libraries and bookshops where children get dressed up in their favourite characters from books. Book related decorations for example Pirates indicating Treasure Island or Peter Pan can be put up to make the day look fun. Authors often visit schools and £1.00 book tokens are given out to encourage children to buy a new book to enjoy. This day also gets children thinking about the books they love when choosing their favourite Fancy Dress Costume. If your child is celebrating a birthday at this time of year it also a great idea to have a Book Themed Party.
