The Easter season expresses many traditions and symbols which originated in both Christianity and the ancient world. The religious source of Easter is manifested in Christian imagery and church services; on the same day, vividly colored eggs and generous bunny rabbits with baskets are popular icons; derived from the pagan spring festivals of ancient cultures. There is, however, a common theme between the two seemingly divergent celebrations – new life, rebirth and resurrection are celebrated in both religious and secular traditions. Spring and Easter flowers fit into this theme beautifully, as they re-bloom annually and “come back to life“ to adorn the earth with warmth and joy.
A timeless symbol of the biblical Resurrection, white lilies have signified religious Easter observances throughout the years. The lily is a magnificent emblem of Easter that has stood the test of time, and is most commonly associated with the holiday. But the white lily is not the only flower with ties to spring sentiments. Some other blooms that awaken our senses include the azalea, tulips, daffodils, hydrangea, daisies, forsythia and mums in a wide range of pastel colors and hues.
Spring floral arrangements are a meaningful way to celebrate the end of winter, the beginning of sunny Fort Worth days and the excitement everyone feels at this time of year. We have renewed energy and renewed hopes – so what better way to translate those feelings than with vibrant, fresh cut flowers? To decorate a church, to adorn your Easter dinner table, or to wish a Happy Easter to friends or family – spring blooms bring a breath of fresh air into any atmosphere.
