Easter Egg Tree

I saw a few of these last year on some of the blogs I browse but didn’t get around to making one then. So this year when the hubby pruned our trees I was quick to snatch up the discarded branches. The eggs were already in my stash of Easter decorations. (I say that like I have a lot. I really only have these eggs and a “Happy Easter” plaque. Sad. I know.) Super simple and it adds so much to our living room. I am going to miss it when Easter has come and gone.

It wasn’t until yesterday when I read this post from Baroque Babies, that I learned that this is actually an Easter tradition from Europe. How fun is that? I love decorations with just a bit more meaning than, “I thought it looked cool.”
