Easter will be here March 31st!
Celebrating Easter With Flowers
The Easter Lily: For many, the white Easter Lily represents the spiritual side of the holiday and symbolizes purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life. You will find white lilies gracing pulpits, churches, and other places of worship. (Learn more history and fun facts about lilies here.)
Kids Easter Baskets: Easter is one of the most fun holidays for kids: the egg dying, egg hunting, Easter Bunny, and all that candy. This year, why not fill it with other Easter and springtime favorites, such as flowers! Flowers teach kids about spring and the changing seasons, as well as the different types of flowers and how to take delicate care of them. Include little plastic eggs filled with candy, bunny stuffed animals and other fun treats. (Click for more Easter ideas for kids)
Easter Baskets: Who says Easter baskets have to be for kids? Why not send a colorful basket of flowers to your favorite distant relatives, or send one to yourself? A lovely basket full of beautiful flowers not only enhances home decor, but also puts you in a springtime mood. (Read more about how baskets make all the difference.)
Don’t forget your Easter card message when sending flowers as gifts!
Spring is just around the corner and I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait! Nothing is better than warm weather and being outdoors!
If you want to get a jump start on spring, order a big bouquet of spring blooms — either for yourself, or as a gift!
In this article, you will find flower arrangement examples in all the favorite colors of spring, including color information, best flower choices and even the color compliments. So check it out!

Did you know yellow roses mean friendship? What better way to say “Congratulations,” “Thinking of you,” or “Feel better soon,” than by sending yellow roses to a friend?
Yellow is the color of summer, sunshine, and lemonade. It is a cheery color and has the power to lift us up on dreary days. Surprise your Best Friend Forever (BFF) today by sending a bouquet of yellow roses. It could be that they need a pick me up, or maybe just because they’re your friend, either way it’s a surprise sure to knock their socks off.
