The coming of Easter each year is calculated using the vernal equinox and the lunar cycle. But all you need to know is this – falling on March 27, Easter is within a week of the first day of spring, giving us ample reason to celebrate both through flowers!
The beginning of spring represents a spirit of new life and fresh beginnings. These sentiments are so natural to us that in ancient civilizations, the vernal equinox was considered the beginning of the new year. People recognized the rebirth and renewal all around them in nature, and concluded that the new year was beginning. Easter too carries with it themes of new life – resurrection – and the promise of a new season. And while we still may have frost on our windows in the morning, the promise of spring grows stronger an warmer by the day.
The crocus is considered to be the first herald of spring’s arrival; daffodils also present themselves early in the season. Other seasonal flowers which make striking Easter bouquets include tulips, roses, hydrangea and hyacinth.
Then again, many Easter memories have been made while searching for colorfully dyed eggs and digging into Easter baskets full of marshmallow chicks and chocolate bunnies. These classic representations of Easter Sunday have their roots based in pagan fertility festivals. Bright pastel colors, whether on an egg or a flower, are the unofficial color palette of spring; and the spirit of youthful vitality and renewal are perfectly represented in arrangements of vibrant flowers, such as tulips, roses, hydrangea, irises, forsythia and asters. To send a completely unique floral arrangement to your friends or family members, allow City Line Florist to create a personalized bouquet just for you.
