Our Favorite Flowers for Passover

Our Favorite Flowers for Passover

Passover, also known as Pesach, is the Jewish celebration of spring and liberation. It’s traditionally a time for families and friends to gather around the Seder table and retell the story of the Exodus.

Fresh flowers are a great way to add to the hopeful atmosphere of the occasion and bring the natural beauty of spring indoors.

The Symbolism Behind Blue & White

Just like Easter celebrations often feature spring flowers, Passover observances traditionally use flowers that flourish during this spring season. However, for Passover, color choice adds a layer of meaning.

The colors blue and white are frequently used in Passover decorations, flowers or otherwise, because of their symbolism. Blue represents the heavens and freedom, reflecting the Israelites’ liberation from Egypt, while white signifies purity and renewal, themes relevant to the Passover story.
