With Easter coming up this Sunday, you may be wondering how to get your space decorated in the right fashion for all of the friends and family coming over for celebrations for Easter Sunday.
Flowers, which are easily bought at any store, are the quickest way to get that Springtime holiday feel without doing anything too drastic (with regard to time and effort) to your interior design.
Certainly, there are several types of flowers and standard arrangements that are already associated with Easter. Here are some tips and ideas to add that touch of color... and if you're looking for more 'Easter meaning' behind the flowers - with regard to colors and their meanings and symbols during the season's religious holidays - we've covered that too.
The color white symbolizes the hope of the resurrection of Christ in the Christian religion, as well as the purity and newness that comes from victory over sin and death. White is purity, cleanliness, and innocence, and like black, white goes well with almost any color. Many kinds of white flowers are out there that can help you incorporate the Easter colors without doing anything too drastic. There are Wood Anemones, Spring Cress’, May Apples, and many more types as well.
The color red is mostly associated with the blood shed during the crucifixion. The color red is extensively used to make designs on Easter eggs, and red spring flowers such as tulips, or red trilliums, are widely used to decorate Easter eggs and can even be included in flower baskets. Red can symbolize many things; from blood, to love, to infatuation. Red is also seen as a color of passion and warmth, so any hue of red can make a room’s interior design feel warm and welcoming.
Yellow symbolizes the light of the world brought with Easter, and the resurrection - that 'enlightens the world'. Yellow can also symbolize joy, happiness, optimism, idealism, gold, dishonesty, cowardice, deceit, illness, and hazard. Spring season is the time for the bloom of attractive yellow colored flowers, such as chrysanthemums, gerberas and sunflowers. You can make use of the beautiful blooming flowers in your decorations for Easter in any room.
Purple is normally the color of royalty, and it is believed to have been the color of the garment that covered Jesus when he was taken to the crucifix. Purple tulips are often used to adorn Easter flower bonnets, and you can make a beautiful bouquet by making use of purple colored spring flowers. Deep or bright purples suggest riches, while lighter purples are more romantic and delicate. You can use redder purples for a warmer color scheme or the bluer purples to cool down.
While flowers are the quick fix to add any color into your house, all of these colors are in any number of pillow designs, baskets, vases, rugs, or even lampshades, and can make your house aesthetically pleasing while adding that “Easter Touch.”
