The anticipation of spring is everywhere we look. Stores are stocking their shelves with Easter goodies and the weather is showing signs of sunshine and warmer days. Springtime is considered by many to be a fresh start, and spring cleaning and re-decorating goes into full swing as we enter the Easter season. This is the perfect time to freshen up your home décor with flowers! Some of the most common spring flowers used to grace homes this time of year include lilies, daffodils, hyacinth, roses tulips, and irises.
Easter is known for baskets – baskets of flowers, baskets of eggs, baskets of candy! As a matter of fact, throughout history, baskets have played a large role in springtime festivities. In Middle Eastern culture, baskets of grain and seed were gathered on the spring equinox, used in joyous celebrations of winter’s end. Years later, Christians began filling baskets with treats that they were abstaining from during Lent; feasting on these delicacies when the fasting was over. In more modern times, of course, baskets filled with candy and gifts are left for children on Easter morning.
You too can incorporate baskets into your Easter gift giving. Expertly designed to showcase all the beauty that spring has to offer, the baskets and bouquets from Julia’s Florist will be displayed proudly by whomever receives them. These baskets also have the added benefit that they can be equally enjoyed indoors or out – on your dining room table, or your front porch.
