Easter Flower Traditions

Easter is on the way, and there are several holiday traditions of which you need to be aware. Some are religious, some are family-oriented but all of them are centered around flowers. And why not? Easter is a spring holiday and spring is all about nature coming back to life after a long, cold winter. What better way to celebrate a return to life than with flowers?

Flower Traditions

  • The Corsage – The Easter corsage is an older tradition, but it is an important one for those who still honor it. The corsage is most often worn to church services and are given as a sign of love, most often given to a wife by her husband or a mother by her children. The flower used is not important unlike Mother’s Day corsages which have different meanings assigned to different flowers and colors.
  • The Lily – Or, as it is more commonly known, the Easter Lily. This white flower is considered a symbol of purity and goodness and can be gifted either singly or as part of a larger arrangement.
  • Passion Flower – These flowers are full of symbolism for the Christian faith. The three stamens represent the Holy Trinity or the three nail wounds of Christ. The circle of petals is said to represent the crown of thorns that Christ wore, and the pointed leaves are supposed to represent the spear that went into Christ’s side as he hung on the cross.
  • Flower Festivals – Churches all across the world hold flower festivals on Easter. The entire church is filled with spring flowers in a celebration of the renewal of life that spring brings as a symbolic testament to Christ’s resurrection.

Flowers are an important part of most holidays, but never more than Easter. The return of beauty, warmth and life to the world are perfectly captured in the fragile beauty of spring flowers. Don’t miss your chance to celebrate Easter the right way this year. Celebrate with flowers!
