Six Ways to Use Easter Flowers on Your Easter Table

Easter is less than a month away. It is time to put up the holiday decorations along with some colorful flowers. If you aren’t exactly sure how to incorporate flowers on your Easter table, you aren’t alone. Most people love flowers but are a bit puzzled as to how they can be displayed in a truly artful manner. Let’s take a look at some creative ways to adorn your dinner or kitchen table with Easter flowers.

Finish off the table with an elegant floral centerpiece from Brant Florist. One of our colorful floral centerpieces will certainly liven up your Easter table. We have all sorts of beautiful Easter floral arrangements that will look absolutely fantastic on every holiday table.

  1. Place an individual tulip at each place setting

Wouldn’t it be nice for each of your family members or guests to find a lovely tulip at their respective positions at the Easter dining table? Pick out some beautiful tulips for the Easter holiday, place them at each place setting and everyone will have their own tulip to bring back home. It is a small but meaningful gesture, especially for adult Easter dinner guests who otherwise would not have received anything special on the holiday.

  1. Set each place with beautiful floral print napkins

Though a floral print napkin isn’t exactly the same as a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, it is certainly easy on the eyes and a festive way to add colour to your table. Place your favorite floral print napkins at each place for some lovely eye candy. These napkins will also serve as a conversation starter to boot.

  1. Create name cards in the shape of flowers

If you and your family are looking for a creative way to celebrate Easter, give this idea a shot. Trace your favorite flowers onto colorful paper and cut them out to create festive name cards. It is the next best thing to an actual flower. Furthermore, this project lets you express your creativity and allows you to have some fun on the holiday.

  1. White tulips in milk glasses

Place a couple white tulips in milk glasses and space them out across the table. It is a small visual touch that will bring the table to life for your holiday celebration. White is the perfect Easter color and tulips are the ideal springtime flower. You will be hard-pressed to find a better decoration for your Easter table.

Easter Lily

Guess who’s coming to town… No not Santa-We love you Santa but I was talking about the Easter Bunny! Easter is just around the corner so bring on the chocolate, family gatherings and the beautiful Easter Lily.

The story of how the Easter Lily got over to North America is pretty cool. A gentleman by the name of Louis Houghton brought a suitcase full of Easter Lily bulbs with him from Japan (who were the top dog in the Easter Lily bulb export business) in 1919 after World War I. He gave the bulbs to friends and family who were horticulture enthusiasts. After Pearl Harbour the Japanese bulb market wasn’t able to continue and that’s when the west coast saw an opportunity and jumped on it. Since then Oregon and the west coast are now the NEW top dogs in Easter Lily bulb growers.

Caring for your Easter Lily is pretty simple.

  1. It likes bright Light but not direct sunlight
  2. Keep away from heat sources-fireplaces, appliances… etc.
  3. Be sure to remove the yellow stamen out of the centre of the lily as it will turn to powder and stain your clothes, tablecloths… etc.
  4. Lastly and most importantly… DO NOT LET YOUR LILY SIT IN WATER

Remove the foil sleeve when watering and let the plant drain any excess water out. Then you can put the sleeve back on.

The meaning behind the Easter Lily is joy, hope & life. So why not buy someone an Easter Lily and spread some joy in their life and hope it will put a smile on their face.

Happy Easter!

Spring Is The Meme

Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and being a florist, spring is, of course, one of my favourite times of year. Along with summer, fall, and winter, of course. Like most people, I generally claim the current, burgeoning season or the season that seems opposite of the one we’re in the middle of, to be my favourite. Taken as a whole, I suspect I like all seasons the same amount, just in different ways. In the heat of summer, winter’s chill seems like a far off blessing, but in the wet of spring, the more muted beauty of fall might seem more likeable. It’s all about perception.

But we’re coming into spring, so that’s the current topic of conversation. Easter flowers, seedlings, tulips, daffodils, April showers and the beauty and freshness of spring flowers is always a welcomed change! Online, of course, Spring is the Meme, with Facebook posts and tweets being all about how Easter is really from Ishtar and flowers don’t actually bloom now, but actually do so underground, or some other thing that is largely based on semantics or who’s historical perspective you’re asking for. Like most memes, it’s full of truth and expectation, but may not be completely accurate.

Take the whole “tulips come in April” thing. I hear a lot of that. It’s only true for very specific regions, though. While the green of the plants may poke through the soil in April, having actual tulips and other spring flowers blooming is unlikely unless you live in the Southern U.S.A. For most of us, tulips begin blooming in very late April and early May instead.

Still, Spring is the Meme and right now, it’s my happiest time of year. What with all the greenery sprouting, Easter Floral arrangements, people getting new lightness of being, and with less cabin fever being the norm. In a couple of weeks, of course, I’ll probably not like spring as much and be looking forward to summer with its predictable warmth and easier gardening.

Until next time,

Ken Bolt
