Easter is that time of the year when beautiful flowers start to be in season, and an explosion of colors and smells surrounds you.
If you are hosting an Easter Sunday lunch or want to take advantage of the pretty flowers in season, we asked expert florist designers to recommend the best flowers to combine for a stunning easy Easter centerpiece.
Pastel Colors are a must
The Spring season offers tulips, ranunculus, anemones, hyacinth, lilac, and peonies just in time for Easter, and Scotts Flowers loves to use them as the base for a pastel-tones centerpiece. For accent flowers, use lisianthus, Italian ruscus, and seeded eucalyptus to make the flowers’ composition more interesting.
Choose a long and low vase arrangement that features many beautiful pastel-colored blooms. For the perfect harmonious look, you should select white anemones, purple double Dutch tulips, yellow hyacinth, and pale yellow ranunculus
Don’t forget the “specialty” flowers
With fresh green buds on trees and garden beds bursting with flowers, BloomCo loves to work with the cheerful colors of the season to inspire a beautiful Easter centerpiece. Incorporating tulips, ranunculus, roses, and viburnum, with a few “specialties” like poppies or peonies, is a sure way to achieve a well-rounded and dimensional look! Using hydrangeas to add volume is an excellent trick if your container is on the larger side.
Still, need more? Disperse some greenery filler throughout to help complete your arrangement and give it the finishing touch!
If you want to personalize your approach to Easter, and add an Italian flavor to your flower arrangement, why don’t you cerate single centerpieces? We asked Denny Jo to create a simple flower arrangement that we will be able to replicate this Easter.
Using eggshells as your flowers container, use a central peony to bring paster colors to the arrangement. Denny Jo loves to use wildflowers to create volume for an effortless result.
Make sure you take care of your flowers not to compromise the final result. Here are some simple steps to follow:
- Clean the stems well by removing all the leaves in the lower part to avoid the proliferation of bacteria that accelerate the decay of the flowers;
- Change the flower arrangement’s water every day;
- Cut a small piece of stem every day with a diagonal cut and with clean blades;
- Keep away from heat sources or direct sun;
