There is nothing like flowers beginning to bloom, green grass starting to show through the muddy ground, and buds beginning to form on the trees above.
I speak only from memory because here in Montreal, we are not really witnessing anything like that yet! In fact, we just received snow over the last few days, so Easter Sunday might be coated in white.
But that won’t shake my spirit of spring and Easter and all that is on its way!
One tip I have to get myself in the mood for spring is to decorate indoors early and with lots of colour.
Our tradition has been that at the start of the long Easter weekend, the boys and I pull out our decorations for Easter and decorate the home together.
Throw in some crafts and baking, and it makes for a lovely Easter break.
We also tend to leave our decorations up a little longer, since traditionally Easter lasts seven weeks after Easter Sunday. By then it’s nice and warm out and we put things away to start other celebrations for summer.
Without fail, Hallmark plays a role in our decorating. I always smile when I see our Hallmark decorations from the years prior when we pull out our box. And this year, there are some sweet new additions.
Look for these at your Hallmark Gold Crown store. And keep these sweet gifts in mind for Mother’s Day too.
