Easter is the first holiday of the year when so many beautiful flowers are finally in season, and everything is in bloom. If you're hosting a brunch or dinner, you can impress your guests with a stunning Easter flower arrangement that will set the mood. It’s the perfect time to start perusing local farmer markets and go to a local nursery to look for fresh-cut flowers. When you shop for florals, look for colorful blooms like tulips or dahlias that will stand out on your dining table. And challenge yourself to mix and match. Consider blooming branches, that will create height at the dining table and draw the eye up. No matter what you choose, look for colorful flowers to celebrate the holiday and enjoy the new season. This Easter, get inspired and embrace this spring celebration in style with the 35 chic and on-theme florals ahead (plus, shop our favorite vases to display them for an even more elevated Easter Sunday).
Roses don't have to be reserved just for Valentine's Day and romantic holidays. Mix pink and yellow roses with green florals to make the floral arrangement look lush and spring-inspired.
