Whether Easter is a deeply religious occasion for you or more about the opportunity for your family and friends to share a nice spring day together, the day can be a wonderful time to celebrate rebirth, natural beauty and the changing of the seasons. Flowers serve as a lovely physical representation of all three of those things, and there are a lot of different types of flowers to choose from. As a florist in Washington County, NE, we carry a wide selection of flowers appropriate for Easter celebrations, and we look forward to filling many different Easter flower orders each year. Here’s a guide to some flowers you’re likely to see this coming Easter Sunday.
- Lilies: White lilies are said to signify hope and love, making them a popular choice for Easter celebration decorations all over the world. There’s even a legend that white lilies grew underneath the spot where Jesus was crucified. Many Catholics also believe that white lilies represent the purity and innocence of the Virgin Mary. Whatever you believe, lilies provide a tasteful, clean look for any Easter celebration.
- Daisies: Similarly to lilies, daisies are also believed to symbolize peacefulness and purity. The yellow at the daisy’s center, matching the color of a newly hatched chick, also means rebirth and new life. Country Gardens Blair Florist is proud to always have a great selection of fresh, beautiful daisies for our valued customers.
- Daffodils: While most popular Easter flowers symbolize the purity and newness of spring, daffodils also have a more romantic meaning. Giving someone a daffodil can represent your undying love and devotion to them, while also making for a festive Easter decoration. Whether or not you have romantic aspirations this Easter season, daffodils are a strong choice and can be found in abundance at Country Gardens Blair Florist.
- Chrysanthemums: Chrysanthemums come in many different colors, most of which symbolize cheerfulness, making them a perfect addition to any occasion welcoming spring. However, yellow chrysanthemums should perhaps be avoided if you believe in symbology, as they symbolize unrequited love.
- Azaleas: The azalea’s striking pink color brightens up any Easter celebration, and azaleas are especially appropriate for more religiously focused gatherings, as they can represent both passion and moderation. Azaleas also take on a special meaning when given as gifts: that the giver hopes for the receiver to take care of himself or herself.
- Tulips: Available in many different colors, tulips are the perfect flower choice for new lovers celebrating Easter together for the first time. A red tulip says simply, “I love you,” while a yellow tulip means the giver is head over heels in love with the recipient. Meanwhile, a bouquet of differently colored tulips can indicate that the receiver has strikingly gorgeous eyes. Whatever color you choose, tulips will help make for a happy and loving Easter.
