Easter, Easter Basket, Easter Gift Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The word “Easter” comes from the Old English word Eostre, which refers to the goddess of spring and fertility in Germanic mythology. The holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon in April, which is why there are sometimes two Easters in a year (one in March and one in April). Many Christians choose to celebrate Easter by attending church services and/or going on a religious retreat. Others celebrate with family and friends at home by eating special meals or exchanging gifts.

The origins of Easter date back to ancient times when people celebrated the spring equinox (the day when night and day are equal). The spring equinox was seen as a time for rebirth because it marks the beginning of spring, when plants begin to grow again after being dormant all winter long. People also celebrated this time because it was believed that their gods were returning from their winter sleep at this time as well!


Easter is the time to celebrate the renewal of spring, the return of warm weather, and all the beauty that comes with it. With Easter right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what flowers and plants to send as Easter gifts.

Easter is the perfect time to send flowers and plants! You can never go wrong with roses, but if you’re looking for something different, try tulips or hyacinths. Or maybe a nice selection of all three!

If it’s the season for spring blooms, but you know your recipient would love some bright summer flowers, consider sending them a bouquet of sunflowers (or even an arrangement of all three!). When in doubt, stop in and visit our floral design center. We will have lots of get Easter themed floral bouquets in our coolers, ready for immediate purchase.

The baskets are designers put together generally consist of an Easter basket with flowers, usually wrapped in cellophane or paper, and often filled with candy or other delicioius edible treats. The contents of the basket may vary depending on product availability. We encourage you to purchase early in the Easter season for best selection.

If you’re buying one for a child, it’s likely that their basket will have toys or candy inside. However, if you’re buying one for someone who’s older and has allergies or dietary restrictions, they might not want any type of food in their basket. The Hoover-Fisher design team often fills the baskets we sell with different types of flowers and greenery that are appropriate for springtime—things like tulips and daffodils are popular choices.

Easter lilies are native to South America, but they have been cultivated in Asia for more than 2,000 years. They have been widely used in religious ceremonies across many different cultures, including Hinduism and Buddhism.

Easter lilies grow from bulbs that can be planted in the ground or in pots. When they are planted in pots, it is important to keep the water level high enough so that they do not wilt or rot away before they bloom again next spring!
