Pastel colors are traditionally associated with Easter. “Why?” you may wonder. Well, here at Gordon Boswell, we think we know why. The pale, soft hues of pink, blue, green, yellow, and peach not only give us a feeling of calm and relaxation, but these colors are also uplifting and cheerful in a more gentle way. They reflect the early colors of spring and bring with it a sense of optimism, hope, and rebirth.
To help bring the freshness and wonderful characteristics of spring into your home, collect some pastel-colored blooms to put in a vase. Or, better yet, choose from one of our gorgeous pastel-colored arrangements perfect for Easter or Mother’s day.
