Easter Palm with Tulips by Anna
Bespoke Easter Palm made with lovely, colourful tulips from Kurpie region in Poland. Each palm is unique and handmade by Ania.
Dimensions: 60 cm.
Palm will look lovely in a vase as a flower bouquet, hanging on a wall or lay it against a wall by a fireplace.
Traditional Polish Easter Palms look different depending on the region but they are usually made of boxwood, willow decorated with colourful dried flowers, catkins, straw and ribbons. We especially love Kurpie ones as they are made entirely of paper flowers!
One week before Easter, on Sunday Palm, the palms are blessed in the church. Tradition says that they should be kept for the whole year to protect the house from all evil. Other superstitions say that after you’re back from the church you should walk around your house 3 times carrying the Easter palm before entering the house to have a good year; gently slap your cows with the easter palm so they will give you lots of milk in return. Most importantly is not to forget to swallow a catkin from your easter palm as it will protect you from getting a sore throat.
