The shamrock is Ireland’s national flower, and its history goes way back to Celtic culture. Ancient Celts honored the flower as a symbol that reflected the sanctity of the number three in Celtic culture with its three heart-shaped leaves, and they believed that the shamrock could ward off bad spirits and cure illnesses. The shamrock was also a symbol of strength that rallied the Irish when they were under oppressive British rule during the 19th century. British monarch Queen Victoria outlawed the wearing of shamrock flowers in an effort to crush Irish rebellion. This law, however, only fueled the Irish and made the shamrock that much more special in Irish culture.
Irish Blessing Kitchen Accessories
There’s no better way to send someone Irish well wishes than with a heartwarming Irish blessing. When guests in your home read the sweet blessings on pieces like those available in our range they will know that they are in the company of loving, thoughtful friends and family.
An Irish Blessing Mug- this ceramic mug features in a lovely Celtic font, an Irish blessing which is framed by intricate green Celtic Knots and Trinity Knots.
Irish Weave Irish Blessing Tea Bag Holder- crafted from ceramic, this piece is beautifully designed in the shape of a teapot, complete with a handle and stout.

Some of the blessings featured on these items include “May your troubles be less and your blessings are more and may nothing but happiness come through your door” and “May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; and the rainfall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of His hand.” Several of these items also feature ornate Celtic Knot patterns with intricate, interlocking loops and woven designs that symbolized eternal love in ancient Celtic life.
Irish Leprechaun Home Accessories
For those who want to bring some colorful animation to their tea parties and other dining events, they can decorate their tables with items like the McMurfy Leprechaun Tea Bag Holder, the McMurfy Leprechaun Tulip Mug, and the Leprechaun Toby Mug. Leprechauns are naughty little creatures in Irish fairy tales that are recognized by their signature green top hats and red or green suits. They craft shoes and gather gold coins in pots that they hide at the end of a rainbow. According to these fairy tales, if a person captures the leprechaun, then the tiny being will grant his captor three wishes if he sets him free.
