It’s Easter time, and we here at Central Square Florist are getting our baskets ready. We don’t mean the kind filled with Peeps and chocolate bunnies, but instead the kind that are blossoming with blooms or that boast a bulb garden. We love the kind stuffed with sweets, don’t get us wrong, but there’s just something about designing right into a basket, which is so emblematic of the season. Ever since ancient farmers first carried their seedlings in baskets to be blessed for spring, we’ve associated baskets with this season.
We’ve planted a veritable Bulb Garden into our favorite basket, a traditional white-wash from which spring’s best flowers bloom. Tulips, daffodil and hyacinth are just some of the flowering bulbs you might encounter here, growing from a rustic bed of moss.
This makes a stunning gift for your Easter host or just the right centerpiece for your holiday table, if you’re the host. A bulb garden also makes the perfect Easter decor item to set the tone, especially if it’s displayed alongside a bright basket of Easter eggs. The best part is, this is a floral basket that lasts much longer than a design that features cut blooms. It makes the house feel just like spring.
