Easter is one of my fave times of the year. I love it, not as much as I love Christmas but I love it none the less. We hold Christian beliefs as a family so Easter has always been something I have celebrated growing up. We had/have a little Easter Sunday lunch, go to Church etc but also had fun with the lighter side of Easter like chocolate, fluffy bunnys and egg hunts. I have such happy Easter memories from over the years that when “Mini” arrived I wanted to start our own little Easter traditions for her. So last year I started the tradition of decorating the house for Easter and making up a little Easter basket for her. This year you may have spotted my fireplace Easter decor on instagram which is a little bit of fun. I haven’t decorated as much as normal as we aren’t 100% sorted interiors wise in our new house yet, but I have decorated our little hall area too and hope to get my Easter tree up this week too (which you know will end up on instagram, darn it i’m turning into an addict!).
I have finished “Mini’s” Easter basket for this year though and i’m pretty pleased with how it’s turned out…
This year I wanted to get an actual basket as last year I used a Easter bag. I found this cute basket in my fave store Tkmaxx, it’s Mint in colour the same as “Mini’s” feature wall in her room, so it will be used to store something in her room after Easter.
This years basket features a good bit more sweet items than last year, but these will be rationed ha don’t worry she won’t be scoffing them all in one day! She has got some choccie eggs, carrot shaped chocolate, a marshmallow stack which is adorable featuring a bunny, 2 chicks and a little sheep. 2 Easter cookies one a Chick and the other a egg with Happy Easter on it (to be honest these won’t be eaten as cookies that are able to be eaten after being on a shelf for dear knows how long kinda unnerves me ha, there is something kind of wrong about that? no?! So suppose you could say they are actually decorations).
The main Chocolate item is a lovely little lamb! I opted for this instead of an egg this year, well because it was so cute!! It’s from Lidl and cost about £1.99/£2.99 I think? They have a great range including a chicken on a nest which is amazing (I’m popping into get one this week for our Easter party next Friday).
I always get her little themed colouring books each celebration/ season and found this cute Easter one in a local card store. “Mini” loves Stickers so I got this little set from I think home bargains uk (I’m a bit obsessed with that store). Her bff Bunny has patterned bunny ears and when I spotted this little bunny ear head band in this similar print I had to get her it. Nice little addition for her dressing up drawer.
It’s not a Easter Basket without an soft toy and despite the fact that she has a ton of bunny toys I couldn’t resist picking her up this Easter Bunny from Poundland recently, to add to her collection.
The cute little purse is another home bargains buy (I actually got the Christmas one for her Christmas eve box) “Mini” likes to play shops so this little purse will be a hit i’m sure. Finally and my fave little thing from her Easter basket has to be this gorgeous felt bird house decoration from Tkmaxx. It’s so sweet and will be going up in her room all year round after Easter.
I’m so looking forward to giving her this little basket!
