The Easter holiday has something for everyone - it is a blend of two completely opposite traditions, which over the years have landed on the same day and merged their customs. With references to rabbits and eggs arising from ancient pagan festivals, and the Christian customs originating from the Resurrection of Jesus, it is an odd pairing for sure. Still, most people do celebrate aspects of both traditions - and regardless of how you choose to celebrate the day, you'll need flowers. After all, flowers make every day more beautiful. The spring flowers and Easter floral bouquets from Rose Hill Flowers will add beauty and color to all your holiday festivities.

Did You Know? The Easter lily is considered the official flower of Easter and is popular both in religious settings and as a gift. Legend ties the Easter lily to a garden that Jesus walked in, and the blooming plant is thought to represent hope and new beginnings. Read More about Easter Floral Bouquets and Designs »
The daisy seems so simple and unassuming, but in reality, this is truly a fascinating flower! The common daisy which we are familiar with - with its iconic white petals and golden center - is one of a family that boasts over 23,000 varieties, with cousins as diverse as the artichoke and the sunflower. In the month of April, we celebrate the daisy as the official birth flower, and at Rose Hill Flowers we have designed beautiful daisy bouquets and arrangements sure to make your loved ones smile on their special day.
How Many Flowers Do You Count? The daisy is known as a composite flower, which means it is actually a flowering plant made up of many, singular "florets". Take a close look at the colorful disk center to see the many tiny flowers that make up a single bloom. Incredibly, each "petal" is actually a small flower as well, making this flower a lot more complex than it initially appears! Read More about Birthday Arrangements with Spring Daisies »

Ten years ago, Colleen Paige began promoting National Puppy Day as a way to encourage people to adopt puppies (and older dogs) from shelters instead of purchasing them from for-profit breeders. Citing the overpopulation problem in the United States, and the sheer number of dogs being surrendered to rescue shelters, Ms. Paige began the grassroots effort which became a social media phenomenon and is recognized worldwide.
Did You Know? The numbers are staggering. Each year, nearly 4 million dogs are surrendered to shelters, and only 35% of them will ever be rehomed. Sadly, approximately 1.4 million of those dogs will be euthanized. Even with so many "unwanted" animals, there are 70,000 new puppies born annually. Read More about Finding Puppies a Forever Home »

Considered by most to be a pioneer and important visionary, Floral Design Day was established in his honor.

In the late 1990's, a movement of kindness was birthed. Although there is some discrepancy as to where the inspiration for Random Acts of Kindness Day came from - some say a group in Denver, others a young man in New Zealand - the end result is a cultural phenomenon. February 17th is officially set aside as the day to celebrate the many ways we can make the world a little better and a little kinder, millions of people have adopted the concept as a way of life year round. Just imagine if everyone decided to participate in this day of compassion and generosity, what an impact could be made! Rose Hill Flowers has the opportunity to take part in acts of kindness every day - and we would love to help you to make this year's celebration meaningful and fun!
