I’m always enamored with the work of famous floral designers, but those fabulously luxurious coastal blooms aren’t always available here in the Midwest.

Even when they are, they’re usually a 30+ minute drive away at a wholesaler downtown… and that’s just not always realistic for our busy lifestyle.

The Best Types of Easter Flowers

I have so many favorites for the spring season, it’s hard to list them all! However, I can certainly say that the most common blooms in March and April are the ones I always tend to use.

This is simply because they are so inexpensive and accessible at my local floral sources. (i.e. grocery stores!) There are many popular Easter flowers, including the following:

  • tulips
  • hyacinths
  • hydrangea
  • herbs
  • lilies
  • roses
  • ranunculus
  • daisies
  • daffodils

Tips

  • Choose flowers that look good in low, easy-to-see-across centerpieces. I spent many years of my early career as an event designer, and I noticed that guests always preferred the lower, more intimate table settings.
  • Add eggs to table decor – they are the ultimate sign of spring and so inexpensive.
  • How to be Your Own Florist – These are my favorite tips and tricks for designing that I’ve acquired over years of practice! I’m not a florist, but I pretend to be one!
  • Trader Joe’s flowers– Learn all about how to choose grocery store flowers, what to look for, and more!
  • How to Arrange Tulips
  • Learn how to Create a Grid on a Vase

One of my best entertaining tips is to shop from your home. That’s right – I bet you already have so many items that could work for a beautiful table!
