Fun Trivia – Where Did the Easter Egg Come From? In ancient cultures, spring festivals were often held to celebrate and hope for fertility and abundance of all kinds, whether in the family or with their crops. Eggs were considered symbolic of this hope, and women often carried armloads of the eggs at the gatherings. To make it easier, they created “nests” made of grass or twigs, which evolved into the Easter basket to carry eggs.

If you would like to send a bouquet overflowing with good wishes, consider yellow lilies, pink tulips, or blue hydrangeas. These flowers are iconic representatives of the Easter season and work beautifully together to create a stunning gift.

One of our favorite traditions on Easter is getting together for dinner. Whatever your customary meal, a fresh Easter centerpiece bursting with color is a gorgeous focal point for your holiday table. Heading over to someone else’s house for dinner? They will love this thoughtful hostess gift, complete with whimsical colored eggs and a taper candle.
