Easter Sunday is only two days away, and the time has come when we typically begin to prep our meals, finalize our Sunday travel schedules, and put the finishing touches on holiday decorations. This year, Easter will find nearly all of us with our immediate family exclusively and, sadly for many, alone entirely. Still, the season of regrowth and rebirth is upon us and what better way to honor that spirit by sending some last-minute arrangements to the loved ones we will miss this year as well as those who will find themselves home alone for the holidays. Here are a few ideas presented by the folks at Country Gardeners Florist in Millerton, NY.
Whether you’re looking for a finishing touch for your own Easter-themed centerpiece or- more aptly- a thoughtful gift to send to someone this coming Sunday, Tulips provide plenty of beautiful spring blooms that anyone will be sure to rave about for many holidays to come. Easter tulips have become a worldwide tradition to gift on Easter Sunday and throughout the spring season. Like many flowers, each colored tulip holds a different meaning. No matter the sentiment, a bouquet of Easter tulips will surely add a burst of color and sunshine to an otherwise unprecedented Easter Sunday this year.
A cheerful spring mix of a colorful assortment of flowers will bring the spirit of the constant gardener out in everyone. Hyacinths remain steadfast in their inclusion in springtime and Easter gift arrangements. Hyacinths are spring-flowering bulbs with long, narrow leaves that are folded lengthwise. Hyacinths are highly fragrant flowers that bloom in dense clusters making them an excellent color accent to any springtime arrangement. The hyacinth’s waxy, densely-packed florets come in shades of white, peach, orange, salmon, yellow, pink, red, purple, lavender and blue.
Come now, did you really think we would mention any kind of Easter arrangement without the inclusion of eggs? Sure they’re not flowers-but who cares? The truth is, now more than ever, everyone is looking for a symbol -no matter how small- to remind them of Easter’s past. What better way to remind loved ones of happier holiday times than a brightly colored speckled egg. Complete your spring garden gift with this decorative bit of sentiment to remind those finding themselves alone this holiday that you’re thinking of them and, in spirit, you’re spending the holidays together.
