Now that my kids are getting older (the youngest is a Senior in High School), this will probably be the last year for Easter baskets. Looking back over the years, the Easter baskets have changed as they’ve gotten older. When they were young, they were filled with books, little toys, and stuffed animals. Now that they’re older, they mostly have candy, iTunes gift cards, and an Easter dress as part of our family tradition. I certainly miss those days, but am excited to share the last of my kids’ Easter baskets with you.
I love the color white, and chose Easter baskets in that color to make the beautiful pastel contents stand out more. I’m not a fan of the “plastic” grass, so I found colored shredded paper in green that I use. A chocolate Easter bunny is the focal point of the basket, and I just tied a cute pink gingham ribbon around its neck. I also love painted glass eggs, so I add a few of them for aesthetics. Finally, a few pastel colored plastic eggs are filled with candy and tucked into the grass. A sprig of cherry blossoms completes the look.
I hope you have a wonderful Easter filled with family, love, and beautiful Spring weather! I’ve added some Easter baskets in the widget below if you’d like to find something similar.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
