Are you ready? It's Friday, it's Easter weekend and Evan and I are finalizing something big, I mean really big, for the blog. It will be debuting on Monday and I can't wait to share it with you! I’m so excited friends! But let's get back to Easter before I go and spill the big secret. Make sure to check out my Instastory this weekend to get a sneak peek!
Growing up, the morning of Easter was a bit like Christmas. On Christmas morning, my sister and I would get up and try to guess what gifts Santa had left for each of us under the tree. On Easter morning my sister and I would get up early and try to figure out where all the Easter eggs were hidden. That way when we came home from church to do the egg hunt, we already knew where all the eggs were. It was always a fun, but slightly competitive event.
As an adult now, one of the fun things I get to do is start some new holiday traditions. (Don't worry, I’ll still do the egg hunt for Evan, but it just won't be quite the same.) So here are the three things that we are going to start including in our Easter celebration.
1. Decorating Easter eggs
Whether it was with a decorating kit or just with food color, we always made special eggs for Easter. I loved that I could make each one unique and had so much fun making them. Sadly that kind of stopped when we got older, but I want to start doing it again. I've found so many cute ideas on Pinterest that I can't wait to try out.
2. Having an Easter lily
The Easter lily symbolizes purity, hope and beauty, the perfect representation of the Easter season. Since I love having fresh flowers around, I wanted to include a lily to remember that there is beauty everywhere you look and the hope of a new day dawning.
3. Hiding one egg with a special surprise for everyone
Our Easter eggs had mainly quarters inside and occasionally we would get a dollar bill. I loved that everyone got the same thing, but I thought it would be fun to have a different Easter egg for everyone. Each one would have a small, random gift that would be just for them.
Even though I may be starting some new traditions, having a special Easter outfit is one I'll be keeping. My sister and I always had matching dresses when we were little and one of my favorites was a pastel watercolor floral print dress with a pink sash. It had a skirt that twirled and little cap sleeves, so I used that dress for this inspired look. I hope everyone has a wonderfully sweet Easter weekend and that you enjoy the time you have with friends family. Can't wait to see you back here on Monday for the big reveal! Happy Easter!
Do you have any fun Easter traditions?
