Imagine a beautiful hillside in the spring covered in wildflowers that dance in the gentle breeze. The sun has chased away the cold temperatures of winter, and it’s time to observe Easter and spring’s new beginnings. What flowers will you choose to help you celebrate? Will you choose traditional lilies or will you go with something festive like bright carnations to use for your Easter flowers?
Flowers For Religious Observances
Easter has become a widely celebrated holiday by those who observe religious days, as well as by families who embrace this springtime celebration with friends. If you’re looking for flowers to use in a traditional observance of Easter, you may want to choose an elegant display of spring flowers in a simple glass vase.
Think of hydrangeas, roses, and calla lilies in colors like white, cream, and pale green. These flowers are appropriate for display in a traditional church, as well as at the customary Easter brunch that your family attends after services. If you have a friend who celebrates Easter who lives far away, consider giving them a vase of white lilies.
If it’s a tradition for everyone to gather at your home after going to church, welcome your guests with a beautiful meal with foods like glazed ham, garlic-herb roasted chicken, or roasted lamb set among beautiful vases of carnations or lilies.
Having Fun with the Kids
Before they’re old enough to appreciate the meaning of Easter, many children just want to wake up on Easter morning and hunt for eggs, getting their Easter finery completely covered in dirt in the process. Viewing Easter as a joyful celebration is a wonderful way to incorporate this important holiday in a young person’s life.
It’s also a childhood tradition to stuff one’s self with chocolate and candy on Easter. What better way to decorate a party than with a bright display of orange, pink, and yellow gerbera daisies? This vibrant cube of flowers is so festive and beautiful that it almost looks edible, just like the chocolate bunnies and candy-filled eggs.
As you plan your Easter celebration, remember to celebrate with flowers from Gordon Boswell. Nothing is more meaningful for this holiday than the flowers that accompany this “movable feast.”
