This will be the fourth year we have done an Easter Tree. I had never heard of them until I met my first husband whose sister had married a German fella – apparently Easter Trees are a common European Tradition and if you google the term Easter Tree you will find heaps; all based on using a twiggy branch and decorating with eggs.

I thought it would be a nice tradition to do once we had kids, and so on the second weekend before Easter we put up our Easter Tree with much anticipation and delight.

It is where we leave our carrot and drink for the Easter Bunny and where he leaves a treasure map for our Easter Egg Hunt each year.

We went for a walk down our street to a spare block up the road that I had scouted out earlier in the week for some likely looking branches :)

The bag of little eggs I have had for four years but last year I found the boxes of 12 bigger metal filigree eggs each from target on after-Easter Sale for $4 each. Score.
