Spring dates for your diary
09 February 2021
We select a few of our favourite dates in the Spring calendar that we can look forward to! From celebrating friendships to international campaigns, here are 5 dates for your diary over the next few months:
The most romantic day on the calendar is of course St. Valentine’s Day – which is this weekend! For all you late love bugs out there who haven’t been organised this year, your local Sligo florist are here to save the day. For last minute Valentine’s flowers and gifts, check out our Valentine’s range online or give Feehily’s Florist a call to see what fresh flowers we still have available. We offer local flower delivery to Sligo Town and the surrounding areas including Sligo, Coolaney, Strandhill, Hazelwood and many more!

And not forgetting all our lovely friends! Galentine’s Day on Saturday February 13th celebrates all our BFFs, pals, great mates, chums – whatever you call them - that we are lucky to have in our lives. Why not treat them to a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers to say thanks a million? Feehily’s Florist have the perfect bunch too – our stunning and luxurious yellow roses hand-tied, which symbolise friendship and happiness.
Pheweeee it is a busy few days in the diary! Pancake day falls on Tuesday 16th February this year, which is also known as Shrove Tuesday. In the olden days it was a way to use up store cupboard ingredients such as flour and eggs before the start of Lent.
What Pancakes are you going to make this year? Big fluffy American style pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, crepe style pancakes sprinkled with lemon and sugar or how about layered buttermilk pancakes with banana and chocolate?
World Book Day
International World Book Day falls at the beginning of March, and with lockdown still impacting us all what better way to get lost in the magical world of books? From kids curled up on the sofa enjoying reading Harry Potter series for the first time, to adults diving in to a biography from their favourite influencer using their Kindle, World Book Day encourages us all to get reading and experiencing a new topic or genre.
A charity funded event that encourages children and adults to get involved with reading books, this year they have adapted how they celebrate on the 4th March due to Covid-19, check out their World Book Day website for more information.
St. Patrick's Day
Sure we don’t have to remind you of this annual celebration, but boy is it something to look forward to! This year we may not be able to celebrate together in our usual St. Paddy's Day traditions due to restrictions, but with the thanks to Zoom local companies offering fabulous food and drink to order for delivery we can still have a great day. So why not host your very own virtual pub quiz, fancy dress party or craft beer tasting for friends and family to enjoy virtually?
Mother's Day falls early this year on Sunday 14th March. A day dedicated to the mums or mother figures we have, we get to spoil our special ladies in style! From sending a bunding of her favourite blooms, baking her favourite cake, make her a card or perhaps just tidy your room without being asked!
Mothering Sunday in March also ties in perfectly with the glorious Spring flowers coming into full bloom – sunshine daffodils, delicate bluebells and happy tulips will all be able to spot on country walks and in our gardens. Keep your eyes open for Feehily's Florist special Mother's Day Flowers available to order online soon!
