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!

Don’t Wait to Order Your Easter Flowers

Easter is the perfect time to send beautiful flowers! Spring has finally arrived, flowers are blooming, and well, both sunshine and rain are abundant. Don’t wait until the last minute to place your flower order! You want to make sure they get to your loved one’s hands on time.

Time to get EGG-cited!

Easter garden arrangement by Crossroads Florist, Mahwah NJ

People everywhere are starting to put more creativity into holiday celebrations that ever before. (I blame Pinterest.) Easter is no exception. Growing up, I think I looked forward to wearing a hat to church more than anything. Now kids practically celebrate the entire month with Easter bunny pictures, school activities, extreme egg dying, hiding chocolate coins for the Easter bunny and even more activities I have never heard of before, plus candy candy candy!

With all the Easter chaos, having your family gathered together for group activities might make it worth it after all. Dying eggs for Easter is a long-standing tradition that is fun for family members of all ages.

Every year, Americans dye and decorate more than 180 million eggs during the Easter season.

History of Dying Eggs

The Easter egg tradition started by merging with the celebration of the final provisions of Lent. Historically, eggs were forbidden during Lent, but chickens continued to lay eggs. Eggs would have been hard-boiled so they wouldn’t go to waste. This began the tradition of decorating eggs and feasting on egg-filled meals during the time of Easter. Symbolically, the hard shell of the egg represented the sealed Tomb of Christ — the cracking of which symbolized his resurrection from the dead.

Egg Dying & Decorating Ideas

Like I said earlier, with the rise of Pinterest, there are more ideas out there for dying and decorating eggs than ever before.

  • 1. Wrap eggs in rubber bands to create stripes of white or colors (fully dye the egg first, then rubber band and dye again).
  • 2. Simply use markers to decorate. (Great for small kids who might not be ready for the ‘mess’.) [Read more…]
