Flower delivery in the UK
There are many ways to surprise friends, family members and loved ones with flowers in the UK, particularly because Easter is a time when flowers begin to bloom and the outdoors come to life.
Easter lilies: The most popular Easter flower is the Easter lily. These elegant white blooms are an ideal addition to seasonal flower displays and Easter wreaths. They’re also a religious symbol for Easter and are often seen embellishing church altars. Due to their association with this celebration, they’re one of the most gifted flowers on Easter Sunday. Serenata Flowers have an array of beautiful bouquets containing lilies, all of which can be delivered to various places in and around London.
Chrysanthemums: With their bright hues and clustered blooms, it is little wonder they symbolize cheerfulness and joyfulness. They also boast a particularly long vase life, which makes them a popular choice for those looking for Easter flowers with staying power.
Tulips: Spring brings with it fields and fields of vibrant tulips in bold jewel tones as well as lighter, pastel-hues, for a more classic Easter look. If you’re creating a wreath or table display, adding a handful of yellow, pink and green Easter eggs to the mix will perfectly complement the softly colored blooms. Serenata Flowers even offer next day delivery on many of the bouquets they feature online.
Daffodils: The bold yellow color of daffodils immediately confers up feelings of sunshine and cheerfulness. On Easter, daffodils are traditionally gifted to those you wish to say “I love you” to.
Hyacinth: Hyacinth flowers come in an assortment of hues, including everything from bright blue to purples and light pinks. The common Easter flower boasts a unique cone-shape, with impressive several blooms in each blossom. The flowers look bold and beautiful, and act as a great filler for bouquets, arrangements, and wreaths, especially if you’re wishing to achieve a gorgeous springtime look.
Daisies: Classic daisies in soft cream and white hues are symbolic of purity, or classic gerberas are another popular option for Easter.
If you’re still unsure of what blooms to purchase at Easter, speak with your local florist or a member of staff at a garden center for advice. Alternatively, you’ll find an abundance of useful advice using popular online search engines.
