Maybe I’m feeling nostalgic for my family Easter, maybe I want to be super-group-home-family-teacher, but I’m in the mood to make Easter special… I was realizing today that Easter means a lot more to me than I always thought. Although Thanksgiving is top on my favorite holiday list, my parents did a lot to make Easter special and I want to pass something to our kiddos. My fellow staunch Reformed counterparts might not appreciate Easter celebrations (no bunnies allowed in some churches) but I however, think there’s a pleasant freshness and whimsy in celebrating Easter. Even Easter eggs can be spiritual right? Celebrating rebirth, God’s creation and God’s order of the seasons… Maybe I’m pushing it a little…
Anyways, I was researching inspiration and here are some ideas:
Giving a gift? How ’bout the adorable cut-out basket?
Easter bunny garland? Too cute!
I don’t have any doilies, but if I did, these doily baskets would look festive holding decorated eggs.
And I really want to make Hot Cross Buns. I never have and like the idea of the tradition!
Finish off with a little carrot cake? This is the recipe I made for my wedding cake… It’s been nearly a year, how fitting!
