I used to live in Germany as a little girl and for Easter we would find branches with buds just about to open and bring them back home to put in a vase. Once they were in the vase we would hang Easter decorations on them and either put the vase on the centre of our dining table or on the window sill, where the sun would help the buds open.
A few years ago when I lived in Germany for my year abroad whilst doing a university degree, I bought a few packets of decorations. Since then, over here in England people seem to have caught on to the whole German wooden decoration trend and I’ve seen them sold over here too.
The big box is from Paperchase in the UK, all of the others are from Germany (Galleria Kaufhof if I remember correctly). I haven’t used them yet (living with parents and all that) but I will one day!
I think they’re quite sweet and I used to love getting our set out as a child and looking at all the eggs and seeing which ones were my favourite.
