What would Easter be without its baskets? It’s like suggesting we spend the Sunday without hunting for eggs or noshing on bunny-shaped chocolate. The basket is tradition, and it came to us from an even more ancient farming tradition, when seedlings were brought to church in baskets to be blessed. Eventually, what would become the Easter meal in modern times was also brought in a basket to be blessed. Baskets carry with them a sacred meaning, sure, but they’re also important symbols of comfort and plenty, which is why we here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts love to design with them.
There are many types of baskets on offer for this April 1, but we love the look of our Hanging Bougainvillea. This isn’t a traditional basket per se—we chose a sturdier container than wicker—but it’s the same concept. From this one spills pink blossoms and green vines, as bright and cheerful as any dyed Easter egg. This would be a welcome addition to any porch or patio, signaling the arrival of spring.
We’ve got the Classic Easter Basket, too. This one is topped with a pink bow and a happy plush stuffed inside, along with all manner of candy. We love being able to deliver both types of baskets to you or your loved ones for the holiday.
