Looking forward to Easter
Easter was a favorite holiday at my house
Easter Sunday was a big deal at my house when I was growing up. My mother always made sure we had new Sunday outfits which meant that I got a new suit for the year or until I outgrew it. Even though I acted like I disliked having to wear a suit and tie there was a secret part of me that enjoyed it. Wearing a suit made me feel sophisticated and grown up. My dad was a professional who wore the typical white shirt and dark suit to work so I liked modeling my dad’s behavior including his attire. Once we had the new suit and new shoe purchases behind us, the fun really began. We used the same Easter Basket each year but we got to buy candies and bunnies to fill the basket. And now for the real fun… we always dyed Easter Eggs. My sisters and I even had a few trial run Easter Egg Hunts.
Festivities included an Easter Egg Hunt
After Easter Sunrise Services at church our family would attend a church picnic and participate in a very big Easter Egg hunt with prizes for the winners. I got so very excited. Now as an adult I still like look forward to Easter. It marks the beginning of Spring with that traditional Spring Break just around he corner.
Sharing my love of Easter with Easter Gifts
To spread my love of Easter around I always send Easter Baskets to my nieces and nephews. This year I selected gift baskets with activities, plush bunnies and the traditional candies. I sent my best friend’s three year old a Singing Daisy Duck Plush Toy. It is quickly becoming her favorite toy. For my office staff I sent a Champagne Gift Basket from Arttowngifts’ Last Minute Gifts Department. For my fiancee I selected a Personalized Oval Crystal Jewelry Box. My mom is still a bit of kid at heart so I am sending her a Deluxe Easter Gift Basket. She likes chocolate and this basket fills that order! It includes
Gold Roses are an Alternative to Easter Candy
My mother-in-law-to-be is not a big candy eater. She’s much more disciplined so I sent her a 24 Karat Pink and Gold Rose. These are real roses that have been dipped in lacquer to preserve the rose and then the stem, leaves, and edges are trimmed in gold. I personally think they are better than fresh flowers because they will last forever. There is something rich about displaying them in a vase or a tray. What is really fantastic about my Easter shopping is that I was able to do it all online and in less than 30 minutes. Now my family, friends and co-workers can look forward to Easter with me! And I have plenty of time to dye those eggs.
