Easter decorations

In our family we like to celebrate Easter. This holiday is the time for getting together with our relatives and closest friends. We are not a religious family, but Easter for us represent the end of winter, which can be very long in Sweden.

The main Easter tradition in Sweden is to decorate the birch twigs with brightly colored feathers. This year I decorated the twigs with feathers and porcelain eggs from the well-known Danish brand Royal Copenhagen.

Painted eggs are a must-have at Easter in Sweden. My son, 4 years old, looked very much forward to helping me with the painting of Easter eggs.

I love raspberries. So, for Easter I baked a raspberry cake with vanilla frosting. I am very happy with the result. The cake was delicious!

I wish you all a happy Easter, filled with happiness and peace!

  1. Love to read about your family tradition Irina. Makes me realize that you don’t have to be religious to celebrate the beginning of Spring. Spring is one of my favorite seasons with flowers and leaves coming out. Really breathes hope for days ahead.
