Easter Decorations and my love of Chocolate Eggs

It’s always been a bit of a tradition in my family’s house to make a big deal out of Easter time. When I was growing up Mum would make us hunt for eggs with a special map & would always have some special creative arrangement on the table (a different one every year) whether it be a huge basket with flowers with eggs in them, a cloche dome with eggs under it or a huge grassed pot with tiny eggs nestled in the grass!

There was always evidence of the Easter Bunny having been – with a half bitten carrot or a little footprint made out of talcum powder. What I particularly loved and cherished is Mum’s beautiful choice of eggs, pretty iced flowers decorated on one of my eggs one year-  looking more like an exquisite cake, a personalised egg another year in a ceramic box…and one Easter,  a box of eggs in a exquisite collectable bunny tin…those little details I greeted with wonderment and I hope to bring the talcum powdered bunny rabbit feet into our house this year too..am going to the Royal Arcade here in Melbourne to Koko Black  (Thank you to the lovely  LL from Little Lou Lou Handmade for telling me about it – have a peep at her gorgeous handmade clothes for children) to buy some beautiful Easter eggs in tins or you can also buy them online here & btw I just bought some beautiful decor for the table a jadeite milk glass bunny on a basket see pic below  from Sharnel Dollar Designswhich I’m very excited about!, it looks gorgeous – Happy Easter Everyone!
