Easter Flower Traditions

myflorist_easterThere are a lot of different traditions associated with Easter.  Many people have egg hunts and family gatherings.  Some go to a traditional Easter church service.  No matter what you do, you probably include flowers in your Easter celebration.  Many Easter decorations feature pastel colored flowers along with eggs, ducks, rabbits, and chicks.  Part of this is because Easter has always been close to the beginning of Spring, so it’s a time when a lot of bright, beautiful flowers are in bloom.

There are a lot of flowers connected to Easter.  The most obvious one is, of course, the Easter lily.  It’s not the only flower used for Easter, of course.  Many people like to display the bright yellows of the daffodil or the narcissus because they’re so cheery and remind us that winter is over.

Some other popular Easter flowers include the carnation, which is a classic flower that’s always in demand.  Tulips are also bright and bold, a nice contrast to the cold, often colorless months of winter.  You might even use some roses to bring in color, or mix and match some of your favorite flowers to create a unique bouquet.

No matter which flowers you use, may you and your family have a happy and wonderful Easter holiday!
