Persian New Year (Nowruz) Greeting Card with Potted Hyacinth Plant
Regular priceSale price
Our Happy Nowruz stand up greeting card is really more gift - and even keepsake - than just a card.
It is packaged in an adorable little box with shredded tissue. We include our version of "confetti" - those color-coordinated cardstock cutouts like flowers, and butterflies, and the word Love or XOXO (unless you prefer we NOT add them). But that's not all. We've also designed a matching card that tells all the items one might find on a Haftsin table - including cutouts of some of the symbols. It's a fun, little party in a box that was designed to appeal to children and adults alike. Oh, and then there's the 3 ounces of Hershey Chocolate Kisses - about 18 pieces.
We print your personal message on a separate card and hand print your names on the To and From Gift tag that hangs from the outside of the box.
Our blooming Hyacinth (which incidentally is one of the items often found on the Haftsin table) is handmade using layers of heavy cardstock with foam mounting. There is some glitter trim as well. It measures approximately 4" X 2" at it's widest point.
It's nice to recognize your friends, family members and/or coworkers who celebrate. Nowruz. I , myself, learned about it from my Middle Eastern friends, and it really is a lovely holiday that I wish were more widespread.
Here's just a little bit of what CNN reporters Christina Maxouris and Artemis Moshtaghian had to say about Nowruz:
For millions of people across the globe, Nowruz is no small celebration. Think Christmas, New Year's and Fourth of July combined -- and add to it fire festivities, delicious meats, rice and spices, family gatherings, street dances and loud banging on pots.
But it's much more than that, too. Nowruz "promotes values of peace and solidarity between generations and within families," the United Nations says. It's a time of reconciliation and neighborliness, "contributing to cultural diversity and friendship among peoples and different communities." And we could all use some of that, no matter what it's called.
