Gorgeous Ideas For The Passover Table

Passover is a wonderful time to reflect and rejoice with loved ones. What better way to set the mood than with beautiful, fresh cut flowers? From fragrant lilies to whimsical branches, choosing your personal Passover floral arrangement helps one reflect on rebirth, rejuvenation, and happiness in life.

The traditional view regarding Passover table arrangements is that they should be comprised of flowers in various shades of blues and white. However, in today's more modern view, the color choices for the flowers are much more open. Some popular options include coordinating them to table settings or flatware.

Regardless of the color choice, one popular option is to add some seasonal flowers to the arrangement. Some popular blooms include tulips, iris, ranunculus, hyacinth, and cherry blossoms (just to name a few).

In addition to adding seasonal flowers, make sure to also select flowers that are available year round. One example of such a flower is the rose. They come in many different colors these days but yellow roses are a particularly excellent flower for the table arrangement. These long time favorites are well loved for not only their beauty, but also their meaning in relation to friendship, health, and optimism.

Another great flower to consider is the lily. This gorgeous bloom is the epitome of the spring season with its glorious shades ranging from smooth ivory and shades of blush to its electric tiger lily oranges and sunshine yellows.  Not only are they beautiful, they also come in a variety of styles, from elegant calla lilies in hues of off-white, pinks, or purples to magical Oriental lilies in pinks, white, pale yellow, or burgundy.

Another wonderful accent flower to add is the timeless snapdragon. With their array of delicate buds, these lovely stems can not only add texture and symmetry to your arrangements, they can help bring together your color scheme as well as brighten it.

There is no right or wrong color scheme for your Passover floral arrangements. Your best option is to talk to your local florist about using a mix of seasonal spring flowers along with year-round flowers and asking for help picking a color scheme based on your décor or hue preference.
