Embrace the spirit of spring! This season is all about renewal and fresh mindset, so why not use our Easter flower ideas to express that wonderful sentiment? Beautiful and fragrant spring flowers bring cheer to any setting. Gorgeous bouquets can be used as gifts and can also be used to add more charm to your own home during Easter. Here’s a few ideas of the lovely spring flowers you can avail of this Easter!
The quintessential Easter flower is, of course, the Easter Lily. The trumpet-shaped-blossoms are snowy white, representing purity, faith, and new life. The Easter Lily wasn’t popular in America until the 1940s, but lilies have been depicted in paintings since Biblical times. There is no other flower that more clearly represents Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and Christ’s resurrection. These white lilies are often used to decorate churches for Easter Sunday.
Irises can be found in almost every color of the rainbow, so there are plenty of springtime shades to choose from. This popular flower represents faith, hope, and wisdom: concepts that tie in perfectly with the meaning of Easter! Irises have been in favor since ancient times, and have also come to symbolize courage and admiration. The blue iris flower makes a gorgeous Easter bouquet; mix in yellow and purple iris blossoms to add a splash of cheery color.
Traditional daisies represent purity, innocence, and beauty. Gerbera daisies express all that and more; their vibrant petals are a natural representation of great cheer! These bright blossoms are sure to inspire smiles – especially when the bouquet includes all the best shades of spring. Celebrate the season with vivid gerbera daisies in shades of orange, yellow, pink, red, and purple. Lilies and irises express the faith and beauty of the holiday, but gerbera daisies express the joy!
Roses are a classic choice for any occasion, and Easter is no exception. Select beautiful pastel roses in rainbow hues to show your springtime spirit! Bouquets of pink roses (to represent love and appreciation), yellow roses (warmth and friendship), lavender roses (enchantment and love), orange roses (enthusiasm and passion), and white roses (purity and new beginnings) make thoughtful gifts for Easter Sunday. Present long-stemmed roses in elegant keepsake vases to wow friends and family this Easter!
Daffodils are among the first to bloom each spring, so they’re a classic choice for Easter flowers. Bouquets of bright yellow daffodils indicate good cheer, hope, and rebirth. Some say that a single daffodil indicates misfortune, though, so be sure to buy them in bunches! The sunny yellow petals are hard to resist, and their trumpet-shaped blossoms seem to be heralding spring. Daffodils are poisonous if eaten, and occasionally touching the flowers can cause itchiness or dry skin. So, keep these brilliant bulbs away from little hands!
Tulips are a versatile flower that can be gifted for any occasion. An Easter bouquet of tulips will be instantly recognizable as a symbol of affection, warmth, and beauty. Tulips naturally grow in a variety of colors that are great for spring: white, pink, red, purple, yellow, and orange. Combine these for a mixed bouquet, or consider gifting a potted tulip for an engaging Easter present! Shop multicolor tulips with variegated petals for a truly impressive floral arrangement.
They may be the official flower of Mother’s Day, but carnations are equally beautiful as Easter flowers. These popular blossoms feature lacy petals, a wide selection of hues, and a beautiful, long lasting fragrance. Find carnations in unique springtime colors like soft apricot, deep lavender, and dusty rose. You can even select white carnations for kids to dye along with their Easter eggs. Just place the carnations in water with a few drops of food coloring, and watch to see the new hue displayed on the petals!
The distinctive scent and hue of lavender flowers makes them a natural choice for spring. These pale purple blossoms grow on long, graceful stems, and bring both color and fragrance to your home. The delicate purple shade is great for spring, and the recognizable lavender smell will delight the senses. Lavender is said to represent purity and devotion, which is certainly appropriate this time of year. Shop lavender wreaths and bouquets to get your home ready for the Easter holiday!
