Out with the snow and in with the Easter bunny…who’s with me? After the long and record breaking winter we’ve had here in New England, i’m sure there isn’t a single person out there who wouldn’t welcome the spring with open arms. As the Easter Holiday gets closer, that’s what we will do, embrace it. Though most of us still think about hollow chocolate Easter bunnies, peeps, hiding eggs in the garden and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, as a florist our thoughts at Cedar Grove Gardens tend to go to the more earthy bulb plants such as hyacinth, daffodils, tulips and the symbolic and ever popular Easter Lily. In addition to beautiful and fragrant plants we also have a selection of unique gifts and paper products that are sure to add to your Holiday festivities, our natural birds nest are always a big hit and can be used in a variety of ways, either as a single nest or as a trio down the center of your table. Either way a trip to the shop to browse or delightful hidden treasures or to get inspiration is always worth while.
Quoted from Floral Management Magazine…
” Walk the streets of any city in Russia and many cities throughout Europe on March 8th, and you’ll likely see people carrying bouquets of flowers, bound for a female recipient.” The purpose of the holiday is to raise political and social awareness of the struggles of woman. People give flowers and other small gifts to their mothers, wives, grandmothers and daughters, as well as coworkers, teachers and friends to show their respect, appreciation and love.
So don’t forget the important woman in your life on this special day. Here are a few choices of purple flowers and plants to celebrate the day!
