Easter is glorious for celebrating the risen Jesus Christ in Christian circles and embracing the reality of rebirth, regeneration and springtime in full swing. People are starting to open windows on warm fresh air days and till the ground for grandiose garden plans. The home centers are ripe with new plants, herbs, flowers, shrubs and all manner of landscaping options. The wardrobe of grays and reds is moved aside for pastel colors, light sweaters, sturdy sneakers and a simple parka by the door. It’s a happy time to emerge once and for all from any figurative, seasonal hibernation.
The Easter holiday is marked with all kinds of foods like hot cross buns, ham, chocolate bunnies, specialty cakes, braided breads and jelly beans galore. Families gather once again for a springtime-like Thanksgiving meal, and children color eggs and hunt for hidden candy treasures. It’s a real ah-a kind of celebration, that out-with-the-old-and-in-with-the-new that only Easter and spring can deliver.
Fresh flowers take center stage on every dinner table with small bouquets in powder rooms, guest rooms, offices, kitchens and entryways. Floral prints adorn Easter dresses and fresh blossoms are tucked into straw hats, lapels and Easter bonnets. In a wide range of colors, styles, textures and glory, the fresh floral arrangements from bloomstoday.com will convey your love and warm wishes to family and loved ones across the country, around the bend or right next door.
Lilies are traditional Easter flowers, and bloomstoday.com sends them in bud form in each lily-laden bouquet for maximum blooming time. Some of the most special bouquets with magnificent lily buds waiting to be delivered and open are:
- Easter Lily Plant, stunning white blooms suitable for planting outside
- FTD® Happiness Bouquet, sweet basket with tangerine lily blooms
- European Garden, bursting with spring color and dazzling lily centered in the arrangement
- White Classic Lily, simplistic beauty of modern style

Another approach to spring, Easter and exquisite fresh flowers is choosing a luscious bouquet in one of the enchanting pink or purple keepsake vases. Bloomstoday.com also carries beautiful spring flowers gathered into a creamy white vase with a pewter-like cross on the front. It’s the perfect sentiment for Easter.
For all the beauty and refreshment that spring brings to our homes, flowers top the list for glorious magnificence and fragrance. Blending that with food and friendship strikes happy notes throughout the weekend and the season. Send Easter greetings to everyone you love with fresh flowers, an Easter lily or a little basket of blooms. And smile. Spring is in full swing now.
