Easter Décor

I proudly present: My Easter tree made of pussy willow and hanging decorations

 

It’s the 3 March today and Easter is approaching fast. I love an excuse to decorate the flat and Easter gives me just that! Unlike the UK, Germany is an absolute paradise of Easter decorations, every supermarket and drugstore offers a wide variety of window stickers, Easter grass, wooden carved Easter decorations to hang on pussy willow or forsythia branches.  On my last visit there two weeks ago, I raided the decor departments.

I’m not religious, but I love the family tradition of hanging decorations on an Easter tree similar to a Christmas tree.

“The tradition in Germany to decorate the branches of trees and bushes with eggs for Easter is centuries old, but its origins have been lost. The egg is an ancient symbol of life all over the world. Eggs are hung on branches of outdoor trees and bushes and on cut branches inside.The custom is found mostly in Germany and Austria, but also in other German-influenced places such as Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moravia, and the Pennsylvania Dutch region of the United States”.  Source: Wikipedia

Eggs, bunnies, Easter grass and window stickers, any excuse to buy gorgeous decorations will do!  If you are in the UK, you can get decorations in continental shops such as Butlers and Tiger.

In Germany, we start decorating about 4 weeks before Easter.
