Easter is a special time of the year. A combination of Christian, Pagan and other spring related festivals. Sending Easter flower arrangements has become common place today and flower arrangements for Easter are more creative than of any other time in history. Typically these flower arrangements include the classic basket filled with Easter flowers, and possibly a plush chick or even a rabbit and a box of chocolates. Easter elegance is often displayed through Easter Lilies and other plants. Gift baskets, again similar to the baskets, can be filled with plush toys, Easter flowers and chocolates or colored eggs. Typical Easter flowers include Lilies, Azaleas, Tulips, Daisies and other spring flowers such as iris, freesia and daffodils.

The celebration would usually include a wondrous feast and ensuring the feasts success required taking the food in a basket to the priest for a blessing.
