Easter Tree

I love family traditions and one of the nice things about having your own children is not only continuing the traditions you grew up with but also the opportunity to start new ones. I love the idea of Easter Trees and so for the last 5 years we have duly been out for a walk, picked some budding branches and then adorned them with decorations. At first we only had a few items from hubby's childhood, but we've added to the collection and made some of our own. Now we have a tree that is so full of life that it looks something from Enid Blyton.

The great thing about an Easter Tree is that it is small enough for young children to decorate on their own. What you can't see in this picture is that most of the pink decorations are on one side, mixed colours on the other. That is brother and sister working as a team! They are so proud of their decorating skills they are showing it to everyone (including the postman).

  1. I love these. I do infact love Easter more than Christmas, it's all the fun and jolliness with enforced present giving, nice (ish) weather and lots of chocolate! Plus lambs, bunnies, daffs etc etc. And four days off work more importantly!
