Will you be attending or hosting a spectacular Easter brunch this year? Maybe putting together a special day of egg hunting and gathering for the kids? No matter which way you choose to observe the holiday, Easter celebrations are filled with new life, hopeful beginnings – and gorgeous flowers.
As the winter comes to an end in Wilmington, so does the gloom that can easily settle during gray, cold months. Spring brings the hope of a fresh start, and promises renewal of life; themes which run through the Christian traditions of Easter. The Easter lily is revered for its religious significance – the single stem and bulb holding the magnificent bloom has come to symbolize the Resurrection. Some traditions further suggest that white lilies erupted from the ground in the exact area where Jesus suffered. Throughout history, the Easter lily has become symbolic of the Easter story; and is a classic gift to be given on this holiday.
For those who view Easter as a celebration of the onset of springtime, with its bright colors, fun activities and chocolate bunnies, there are an array of spring flowers which are both vibrant and exuberant. Crocuses and daffodils are often the earliest harbingers of spring, even appearing in lingering frost; in the weeks that follow, many more spring blooms will appear – roses, tulips, hydrangea, irises and forsythia are popular choices for extravagant Easter bouquets.
