“Earth Laughs in Flowers.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Easter flowers make the day more vibrant. Charming Easter flower bouquets in shades of purple combined with wide array of lavender flowers and tulip garden flowers make an ideal flower centerpiece for the Easter table.
Legend has it that lilies sprung in the place where Jesus’ blood drops fell; hence lilies are the traditional Easter flowers in many countries. Another spring tradition which is popular since the 18th century are Easter bonnets made from fresh cut flowers, ribbons and laces, worn especially by little girls.
Churches are decorated with Easter flowers, mainly with lilies reminding worshipers of the new life that comes through the resurrection of Jesus. In ancient times, lily was also known as ‘Pash-flower’, ‘Pasque flower’, and ‘Passion flower’. Today in some churches Easter mornings begin with white lilies in remembrance of loved ones, who passed away.
