Easter Egg Tree
When I was living in Nashville, Tennessee, I noticed a lot of people decorated Easter Egg trees in their yard. The tradition of decorating trees with Easter eggs is a German tradition called Ostereierbaum, but no one really knows the origins. The egg is known all over the world as the symbol of life, and somewhere along the way, eggs became associated with Easter. As much as I love to see beautiful Easter egg trees, I cannot imagine the amount of time that goes into hanging enough eggs to fill a tree. I have a small Christopher Radko tree that I use for a table centerpiece and hang beautiful glass eggs from. It was inspired by the real Easter egg trees that you see, but on a much smaller scale.
Easter Egg Hunts
Having egg hunts is a more common Easter tradition. When my siblings and I were growing up, we’d take turns hiding eggs in the house and outside and make a game out of finding them. I also carried that tradition along when my own children were little. To this day, I know there are missing eggs we never found at all the houses we lived in.
If you’re looking for more Easter inspiration, you can find previous blog posts here, here, and here. The March issue of Wilma Magazine also has Easter tablescape ideas using a specimen cloche as a focal point.
