Easter trees

Mar 21, 2021 | Festivals, Nature Table

Easter trees is a tradition that comes originally hailed from Germany but in my home we love it.

At the beginning of the month we cut a large branch from the garden and bed it into a big pot. This Easter Tree then lives as the centre piece on our dinning table.

It’s such fun to work with the children; we decorate eggs, make little rabbits, moons and flowers to hang on the tree. By the time Easter arrive the tree is full of little wonders.

This very simple idea becomes the centre of our spring celebrations; we are also lucky enough that the Easter Hare usually brings the children a basket filled with small treasures, which we find is a great way to escape the masses of chocolate which can overtake this festival.
