affordable bouquets for easter

Easter is a celebration of a new life and a feast day that occurs in spring, it is only fitting that flowers are used to adorn homes and to be given as gifts during this time. The Christian feast of Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ who days earlier had been Crucified and laid to rest. Today, Easter is celebrated by Christians and non-Christians over the world and usually with the gifting of chocolate eggs. It has now also become customary to gift family members and friends with flowers at Easter. Here you will discover the most popular Easter flowers and the symbolism behind them.


As one of the first perennials to bloom after winter, the daffodil has come to be associated with new beginnings and hope. The vibrant yellow blooms of the daffodil will brighten up your home and the homes of those to whom you gift them. Many Easter dinner tables are adorned with stunning arrangements of these vibrant flowers, and they are also one of the traditional Easter flowers that children gift to parents on Easter Sunday.

Easter Lilies

The elegant Easter Lilly gained its name from being appointed the official flower of Easter. Its white petals are thought to portray purity, and the flower is also associated with spirituality, hope and new life. The pretty flower held religious meanings before its affiliations with Easter. Some people believe that the Easter lily sprung from the ground where Eve’s tears fell as she was cast out of the garden of Eden. The Easter Lily has also adopted political connotations in recent times and is worn by Irish citizens in remembrance of the people, who killed during the Easter Rising of 1916.
