As Winter starts to thaw, it's a great time to tend to the graves of loved ones that may have been neglected during the frozen months. This is a great time to add or replace flower arrangements on grave sites, especially since we are heading into the Easter season. We receive many questions regarding the perfect flower arrangement for Easter, so we thought we would high light some of our most popular items here.
Since Easter is a Spring holiday, we typically recommend using brighter colors and pastels, such as pink, yellow and blue. White is also a very popular and traditional color for Easter. Also, certain flowers, such as Lilies and daisies, are considered traditional for Easter celebrations. The white lily is held as the traditional Easter Flower and represents love and hope. The single flower stem originating from a bulb represents the resurrection of Christ. Daisies symbolize purity... one qualities highlighted by the spirit of the Holiday.
With this in mind, here are some of our most popular Easter flower arrangements:
Premium Mixed Dahlia Headstone Spray
This 34 inch wide headstone spray arrangement is a beautiful display of white and light green dahlias, white daffodils, and other small accent flowers. The arrangement is filled our with palm fronds, and other greenery to complete the look. The arrangement stands about 9 inches tall and looks stunning atop any tombstone. The spray comes with a saddle for easy installation.
Yellow Lily Cross
This is a 22 inch tall cross completely covered in beautiful yellow Lilies. The cross includes a coordinating bow, some accent greenery, and an easel for easy display. The combination of Lilies and the cross makes this a quintessential Easter arrangement. Lilies symbolize the resurrection of Jesus Christ and hope of life everlasting.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), who maintains most of our national cemeteries, has several rules in place to maintain a nicely landscaped and attractive resting place for our fallen heroes. Many of these rules are blanket rules that cover all national cemeteries. However, the rules regarding placement of artificial flowers varies from cemetery to cemetery.
Two of the national cemeteries that aren't maintained by the VA, Arlington National Cemetery and the US Soldier's and Airmen's National Cemetery, are maintained by the Department Army. While each cemetery has its own rules regarding the placement of artificial flowers, most tend to follow the rules set by Arlington, which are as follows.
As a general rule, silk flowers and potted plants will be allowed on graves:
- *For a period extending 10 days before Easter Sunday to 10 days after.
- *For a period extending 10 days before Memorial Day to 10 days after.
- *Christmas wreaths, potted poinsettias, and other seasonal adornments may be placed on graves from December 10th through January 10th.
Some National cemeteries have slight variances in their artificial flower rules, such as Leavenworth National Cemetery, who's rules are as follows: "Artificial flowers and potted plants will be permitted on graves during periods when their presence will not interfere with grounds maintenance. As a general rule, artificial flowers and potted plants will be allowed on graves for a period extending seven days before through seven days after Easter Sunday and Memorial Day. Christmas wreaths, grave blankets and other seasonal adornments may be placed on graves from Dec. 1 through Jan. 20. They may not be secured to headstones or markers."
Fort Snelling National Cemetery has a more open policy towards artificial flowers, allowing them to be placed on graves anytime outside of mowing season, which they consider to be October 1st through April 1st.
Some other rules that should be adhered to are:
- *Floral items should be placed at the side of headstones in line with the headstone row. This allows for equipment operations and prevents damage to floral items.
- *Floral items should not be secured to headstones or markers.
- *Permanent plantings, statues, vigil lights, breakable objects, pinwheels, balloons, toys and stuffed animals and similar commemorative items are not permitted on the graves at any time.
- *Don't place any items that are considered offensive, inconsistent with the dignity of the cemetery, or considered hazardous to cemetery personnel.
There are also some national cemeteries that are maintained by the National Parks Service. The flower rules at these sites can be vague and arbitrary. According to the Parks Service website, "The placement on a grave of fresh cut or artificial flowers in or on a metal or other non-breakable rod or container designated by the superintendent is allowed at times designated by the superintendent."
If you're unsure of the rules for artificial flowers at a particular national cemetery, your best option is to either call the cemetery office and ask about their policies, or search online for them. Below are links to flower rules for some national cemeteries. For most cemeteries, any of the products found on our vases and hoop basket collection page will be allowed.
*Graveside Flowers can deliver orders directly to national cemeteries (or any other cemetery that maintains an office) however, you will need to make arrangements to have the flowers placed at the grave site.
