Easter and Spring
Easter: A Celebration of Renewal and Rebirth
Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is observed on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox, which usually falls between March 22 and April 25. For Christians, Easter is the most important holiday of the year, as it commemorates the event that forms the basis of their faith.
But Easter is more than just a religious holiday. It is also a celebration of spring and renewal. In many cultures, eggs and bunnies are associated with Easter, representing new life and fertility. These symbols have their roots in pagan traditions that predate Christianity, but they have been incorporated into the Christian celebration of Easter over time.
One of the most recognizable symbols of Easter is the egg. Eggs have been associated with fertility and rebirth since ancient times, and many cultures have incorporated them into their springtime celebrations. In Christianity, eggs represent the empty tomb of Jesus after his resurrection. They are often dyed or decorated and given as gifts or used in Easter egg hunts.
Another symbol of Easter is the bunny or rabbit. In many cultures, these animals represent fertility and new life, as they are known for their ability to reproduce quickly. In Christianity, the bunny is often associated with the resurrection of Jesus, as it is believed to emerge from its underground burrow just as Jesus emerged from his tomb.
Of course, no Easter celebration would be complete without flowers! Tulips and lilies are two popular choices, with lilies symbolizing purity, hope, and new beginnings, while tulips represent perfect love. At ATX Flowers, we love creating beautiful Easter floral arrangements that incorporate these lovely blooms, as well as other spring mix flowers. Our florists are passionate about their craft and take great care to ensure that each arrangement is perfect for the occasion.
The history of Easter goes back thousands of years, and its traditions have evolved over time. Today, Easter is celebrated in many different ways around the world, with customs and traditions that vary from region to region. In some places, the holiday is a solemn religious observance, while in others it is a joyous celebration of spring and new beginnings.
Whether you observe Easter for religious or cultural reasons, it is a time to reflect on the themes of renewal and rebirth that are central to this holiday. It is a time to appreciate the beauty of spring, to spend time with loved ones, and to celebrate the miracle of life that surrounds us. So this Easter, let's come together and celebrate this special occasion with beautiful flowers from ATX Flowers.

Why a Local Flower Shop is Best
What can go wrong when you order flowers online from a big-name third party?
Suppose you order an arrangement that should have eight roses, five—six stargazer lilies, eight—twelve carnations and many filler chrysanthemums. But instead, your recipient gets a crappy bouquet with three roses, zero lillies, eight carnations, and only some chrysanthemums, three of which were broken off at the stem.
Unfortunately, this happens to many customers. And it happens because of third-party online floral ordering services like FTD, Just Flowers, 1-800 Flowers, and Teleflorist.
How Do FTD, Just Flowers, 1-800 Flowers, and Teleflorist Work?
First, these websites are not connected to their own store that services customers. All work is done by local florists, who must pay an annual member fee of $1800—$3500!
When a local flower shop gets the order it receives only 90%—70% of the customer's payment. When combined with the annual fee, this leaves little money left to buy and arrange the flowers.
- Customer orders a $100 arrangement from a third-party ordering service.
- Of the payment, 10%—20% is fees, reducing product payment to $80.
- The local shop receives this, then keeps a profit of 10%—20%, leaving about $72.
- Then, about 5%—10% is lost due to the annual member fee, leaving about $60.
- Now, the local florist still might subtract $10—$15 for third-party delivery, leaving about $50.
- Employees must be paid also, leaving only about $30.
In the end, a floral designer can only add about $30 worth of flowers for this $100 order (about a third of which would belong the third-party floral service in the above example).
With only one-third the money left to use, a local flower shop has no choice but to cut corners, or they lose money by working with a third-party ordering service.
So, please get a better arrangement—support local flower shops!
Two Ways to Find Local Flower Shops
A common way:
- Google "local flowers" and call the telephone number of any local flower shop.
A better way:
- Go to yellowpages.com.
- Search for "flowers" at the location you need (more accurate than Google).
- Go to website of (or call) the local flower shop. They will take good care with you.

Preservation Flowers History
Follow information about Preserve flowers from wikipedia:
Flower preservation is as early as the history of man, although deliberate flower preservation is a more recent phenomenon. In the Middle East, the bones of pre-historic man were discovered with delicate wild flowers probably as a tribute to a passing loved one. Evidence of deliberate use of specific flowers is indicated by the pollen grains that were present. Brightly colored and vivid flowers were also found in Egyptian tombs. These flowers were approximated to be 4,000 years old. In the sixteenth century medicinal nosegays began to give way to ornamental ones. Flowers essentially started to be used for decorative purposes such as jewels, fans and gloves. During the Elizabethan Age the once familiar ruff was replaced by soft lacy collars, and bosom flowers also became popular. Out of the Victorian era grew the fascination of communicating with flowers carried in the nosegays. The idea of the Language of Flowers developed, when it was decided that giving and receiving a bouquet of flowers, when the flowers themselves carry a meaning, gives much greater pleasure.
Hot air drying in drying chamber
Compact flowers like marigolds, chrysanthemums, cornflowers and zinnias dry well in a fan-assisted, convection chamber. Non-ventilated chambers are not appropriate, because they generate too much moisture. The material must be dried at a low temperature (30-35˚Celsius), over many hours. The flowers are slotted through holes in a wire mesh rack leaving room for the stems to dangle below. The time required depends upon the density of the flowers.
Silica gel drying
Another trend is silica gel. Its initial cost is greater than that of borax-sand or borax-cornmeal combinations, but silica gel can be used over and over for many years. Silica gel dries flowers quickly, so it can be used to dry more flowers during a single season than the same quantity of a borax mixture. Silica gel is available under a number of trade names. It is white, but some types contain blue crystals that act as an indicator of the amount of moisture that has been absorbed. When these crystals are clear blue, the material is dry. As moisture is absorbed from the flowers, the crystals gradually turn pink. At that point, it is time to re-dry the crystals before using them again. To dry the material, silica gel is spread on open pans or cookie sheets in a layer ½ to ¾ inch thick. Materials to be preserved are then baked in an oven at 250˚Celsius for about an hour, or until the moisture-indicating crystals, if present, are blue again. Material is then stirred several times while drying. Flowers dried in silica gel must be placed in airtight containers. If a container is not sealed tightly, the silica gel absorbs moisture from the air, and flowers dry too slowly or not at all. A candy tin, plastic container, coffee can, large-mouth jar or any other container with a tight-fitting lid may be used. If no containers with tight lids are available, loose tops should be sealed with tape. Silica gel is especially useful for drying fragile plants and flowers with delicate colors. Flowers that dry best in silica gel are allium, anemone, cornflower, roses, tulip and zinnia.
Molecular sieve is a material containing tiny pores of a precise and uniform size that is used as an absorbent for gases and liquids. They are metal alumino silicates which have a crystalline structure consisting of an assembly of tetrahedral. The tetrahedral are made up of 4 oxygen atoms which occupy the summits surrounding either 1 silicon atom or an aluminium atom placed in the center. Compensating cations (sodium, potassium) make the hole electrically neutral. The hole forms an assembly of small cells (or pores) of uniform and known size, in which a molecule of smaller size can be trapped by the phenomenon known as absorption. To ensure the dehydration of the fresh natural flowers the mixture of organic solvents is poured onto the hole until the level exceeds the level of the flowers by about 2 cm. The water molecules are progressively absorbed into the small cells or pores of the molecular sieve. The receptacle is closed hermetically for a few days. Once dried, the flower reabsorbs a little moisture of atmospheric origin, and this increases its suppleness and its plasticity.
As molecular sieve relates to the long-term preservation and treatment of cut flowers for long duration, (i.e. continually maintaining their decorative properties ), Vermont Flowers has been using this method of preserving flowers instead of the traditional silica gel more than 20 years ago. The advantage was a much more professional regeneration of the molecular sieves. Flowers which are particularly suitable for such a treatment are roses, peonies, camellias, marigolds, globe flowers, orchids, dahlias, carnations, phloxes, summer chrysanthemums, hollyhocks, and the like, and other species with many petals or a fairly rigid structure.
Originally introduced in 1813 by William Hyde Wollaston to the Royal Society in London, it was not until the late 80's the freeze-drying industry discovered the allurement and longevity of freeze-dried flowers. Freeze dried flowers are fresh flowers that have been specially dried to preserve their natural shape and color. Freeze drying is accomplished by a process called sublimation. It requires a special freeze-drying machine. It involves first freezing the flowers at 100K for at least 12 hours. A vacuum pump slowly pulls the moisture out of the flowers as a vapor in one chamber, and then the vapor condenses as ice in another chamber. Because of this process, the shape and natural color of the flower is maintained. It has been found that certain flowers retain their color well despite the fact they have been freeze-dried. Apparently, such flowers retain their color due to the tissue composition of the petals, leaves, and the like. Carnations, African violets, roses, asparagus and other ferns, and baby's breath exhibit good color retention notwithstanding the dehydration during the freeze-drying process. Those floral pieces which either dull or fade from dehydration may be given color by utilization of a florist's spray tint. This spray coloring restores the lost color which, in the sealed environment of the glass container of the final product, retains its given color along with the natural color of the other pieces.
In 1989, Paul and Ginette Lambert who were then based in France conducted a new research invented and patented the Vermont Process, which is a unique technology of preserving Roses and Flowers that leave the flowers looking natural by maintaining their original shape and brightness, but for the first time also suppleness. Preservation of flowers involves a careful selection of the desired flower varieties which are grown and hand-picked by specially contracted farms then delivered to the factory for further sorting, grading and finally processing. Preservation of foliage again involves the careful identification and selection of appropriate foliage which are then grown and supplied by specially contracted growers. Once delivered to the factory, the foliage are ‘Eternised’ which is a process of absorption into the foliages with a solution of glycerine, colorants and activators. Once eternised, the foliages are soft and supple until when they are ready for making various arrangements and bouquets. The preserved flowers and foliage are then combined together with other components to make uniquely hand-made and beautiful bouquets, topiaries, architectural sculptures, wall art, lampshades and many more arrangements as designed by a team of internationally recognized floral and interior decor designers. The finished product is meant to last for years if appropriately cared for by keeping it away from direct sunlight, intense heat and water. If need be, one should only gently dust it.
