Easter is almost here! For some, it’s a time of religious reflection, for others, it’s a time to spend with family or if you ask little ones it’s all about the Easter Bunny and chocolate. But for us, Easter is all about flowers, flowers to gift loved ones and flowers to decorate the Sunday table.
Much of the Easter inspiration seen from the UK, America and Europe relates this special time of year to their season of spring. But for us here in Australia, Easter falls in autumn so when we think of flowers to celebrate Easter, we think of seasonal cute blooms often in the shades of white and pink.
Here are a few of our favorites and much more available at the Rose & Co site, so be sure to check them all!
This Elegant lily is so popular during Easter. They are traditional blooms considered to be associated with the resurrection of Jesus, celebrated on Easter Sunday. Easter lilies symbolize hope and renewal, which are the two themes on this special occasion. These lilies are popular gifts among the people who believe in faith, but are most often used in church services at this time of year due to its rich whiteness, signifying purity.
