A holiday filled with pastel colors and springtime, Easter and its celebrated egg hunts and afternoon parties offer the perfect opportunity to decorate your home in flowers. Gifts of delicious chocolate and cute stuffed rabbits often wait for children as they wake on Easter morning, almost like Christmas in the springtime.
What to Bring to an Easter Gathering
One of your best friends is throwing an Easter brunch, and you’re wondering what to bring. Food is almost always a welcome addition to gatherings, and your friend will probably appreciate an edible gift. A simple yet ideal snack to bring with you to the party is a platter of deviled eggs. The kids will have fun on the egg hunt in the backyard while the adults can enjoy your delicious appetizer.
A sweet treat is also a welcome gift at an Easter party, and you’ll have no shortage of choices when you take a quick trip to the candy aisle at your local grocery store. However, if you’re looking for a meaningful, edible gift, you might think about making chocolate-dipped strawberries or bringing a homemade cake.
Want to get the kids involved? Let them help you decorate the cake. Even if the cake is covered with amusing drawings and crooked letters, you’ll enjoy the fun of making a cake with the family, and it’ll taste just as delicious as if it was professionally decorated. Baked goods pair wonderfully with spring flowers. Try a fun egg-shaped bud vase with pretty gerbera daisies.
Traditional Easter Flowers
No Easter celebration is complete without traditional Easter flowers like lilies in pink or daffodils in yellow. Although lilies tend to be one of the most popular flowers in Easter arrangements, the only true guideline for choosing your bouquets is that pastels tend to work best.
Easter is a true celebration of spring and rebirth, which means flowers in shades of baby blue, blush, and lavender should fill your vases and bouquets. Think of happy flowers like daisies, beautiful light pink roses, and hydrangea in spring colors like ivory and light blue.
If you’re looking for a creative addition to the kids’ Easter baskets, you might think about placing a few beautiful stems of carnations alongside the chocolate bunnies and cute stuffed animals. The Easter holiday offers so many beautiful opportunities to decorate in pastel colors, and flowers from your local florist are an idyllic addition for holiday gift-giving.
