  • Details
    Our handmade, 3D Nowruz greeting card features the Hyacinth, which is a symbol of spring and renewal to those who celebrate Nowruz or Novruz, the Iranian New Year. It can be personalized with your message to send to friends, neighbors, family and clients, and is sure to delight all ages!

    The translation of Nowruz is literally "new day", and it usually occurs on or around March 21st and lasts for a period of 13 days. It's observed by first performing a deep cleaning of the home - a spring cleaning of sorts - to prepare for a celebration of a season of new life in which relatives and friends wish each other good luck in the year ahead. How cool is that?! Certainly all of us, Iranian or not, can relate to a holiday that celebrates new beginnings! There's way more good "stuff" than what we can include here; so if you don't already know, take a few moments to google it.

    In every home, the haftseen table is decorated with seven items – since seven is considered a lucky number. Each item begins with the letter sin (s) in Persian, and each item is a symbol of spring and renewal,

    Besides our color-and-theme-coordinated card stock cutouts that are illustrated in the photograph, we are also including symbols that represent the holiday, some of which are among the 7.

    Seeb (apple), representing beauty
    Seer (garlic), representing good health
    Sabzeh (sprouts), representing rebirth
    Sekeh (coins), representing prosperity
    a goldfish swimming in a bowl, representing life
    painted eggs, representing fertility
    book, representing the Quran to some, or poerty by Hafez, one of Iran's most beloved poets, to others.
    clock, representing the passage of time
    Our purple hyacinth measures approximately 4" x 3 1/2" and is handmade using two layers of card stock with foam mounting. A third layer has been used to accentuate the hyacinth and the bow on the pot. Of course, there are little touches of glitter just to make it more festive!

    Just like all of our other selections in the Spring collection, this is packaged in a gable box with shredded tissue. It comes with a matching bow, making it very festive. Definitely more like a gift than an ordinary greeting card! Your friends or family may just decide to include it on their haftseen table next year - and maybe for years to come!
