Spring is underway, and the bright, soft colors of the most popular flowers of the season are beginning to shine in full bloom. With Easter and Passover right around the corner, you might be looking to give a bouquet or arrangement to someone you are close to, but haven’t quite figured out which flowers to include. As with all holiday gifts, it is important to understand not only the guidelines of what types of gifts can be given, but also the significance of the selections you use for your Easter and Passover floral arrangements in San Francisco, CA. Here’s a look at what is signified by some of the most popular spring flowers:
- Lilies: These flowers represent hope and love, and are among the most popular of spring bloomers. White lily arrangements signify purity, which makes them a perfect match for Easter celebrations. White lilies that are given as a gift show their recipient that you are both grateful and pleased that they are a part of your life.
- Tulips: Not only are tulips great for Easter celebrations, but because of their brashness they also serve as a great transitional flower into the summer months. If you want to give a mate a personal gift or bouquet on Easter to let them know how much you care about them, tulips are a great choice, as they symbolize both passion and love.
- Hyacinths: These flowers are best known for their aromatic prowess. When including hyacinths in a bouquet, keep in mind that the color you choose determines the meaning of the gesture. For example, just as with lilies, white is used to show that you are appreciative of someone’s presence. Purple, on the other hand, is commonly given in an apologetic manner after a wrongdoing when you are seeking forgiveness from someone who is close to you.
Giving flowers during Passover
When giving a friend or family member a Passover gift, it is important to make sure that you are thoughtful with both your gift and its presentation. Bright, vibrant colored flowers that bloom in the spring and signify new beginnings and freedom make great gifts during this observance. Gift baskets are also one of the more popular gifts given at this time, and flowers are commonly included as decorations with these baskets. Because observant Jews cannot take a bouquet of flowers and put them in a vase due to the rules that govern what work can be done during this time, make sure that the bouquet is already in a vase before you present it.
