We love this time of year because the Easter long weekend gives us some much-needed relaxation and quality time with our loved ones. Easter in previous years were spent with kids running around hunting for their chocolate eggs, and visits to the local church. We reminisce on enjoyable times spent camping, and have a big lunch gathering at our home with family and friends.
This year will be different, but there are still plenty of ways to share the love with the people in our community, without compromising the health and safety of our loved ones. While this is a time of uncertainty, there are still fun ways to find the ‘normality’ as we celebrate this season.
Share the love with flowers this Easter
Instead of lining up at the supermarket, why not write a personal card and deliver a box of chocolates, or a beautiful bunch of flowers to your partner, mother or even your neighbour? Tulip Bunch are significant throughout this period, as tulips symbolise love and new life.
Daffodils are also symbolic to the Easter season, as they have the meaning of rebirth and new beginnings. The gorgeous yellow brightens up every space, making them an excellent gift for a loved one.
Another flower relevant to the Easter season is the Easter daisy. They’re a tiny white daisy that only blooms during Easter time. The size of these flowers makes them perfect for filling jars and tins to use as the centrepiece for your Easter lunch table.
Use home delivery to support your locals!
Ah, the beauty of the online world. There’s nothing more exciting than getting that notification that the postie is delivering your order today, or receiving a surprise gift in the mail. We suggest that this Easter, you support your local businesses by using their home delivery services.
As the events of COVID-19 continue to unfold, we, as a collective, are facing unprecedented times. We’re all in this together, and continuing to support our local and small businesses is a small act of kindness that we can pledge to do as a community.
No matter what else gets thrown at us, the little things don’t need to change. We can still seek happiness and find ‘normality’ in whichever way we can during the Easter season. There are plenty of fun, indoor activities to do with the kids, such as painting some hard-boiled eggs! An added bonus, they make for a healthy snack!
From all of us at Amazing Graze Flowers, we wish you a Happy Easter.
Stay safe, healthy, and indulge in lots of chocolates!
