I would guess the wooden decorations are in fact German. Every year we’d hang them on flowering branches, mostly on forsythia or pussy willow, along with blown out real eggs we’d painted in Kindergarten. Wonderful tradition!

We have forsythia blooming in our backyard also. Its the perfect shade of cheery yellow to put us in that Easter mood.

Have to go on a hunt to find something like them…I don’t think I can make it to Gifi in France, but boy would I love to try! They don’t by chance ship to the states? P.S. Thanks for the Minted website info. I just ordered our first ever really snazzy Easter card. Can’t wait to get them. Happy Easter.

It makes me so sentimental!

I have continued this tradition with my kids using a plum tree we planted in the back yard when my son was born. The trick is getting the eggs on before the tree blooms! Happy Easter!

We used to put up an Easter tree every year growing up: Ours was a collection of small, gnarled tree branches spray-painted white — and the ornaments looked a lot like the ones you found, in fact. They really take me back…

Last year was the first time I made an Easter tree of my own (http://goo.gl/3hHBj); I used pussy willow branches and made some blown-egg ornaments (colored with Not Martha’s dye instructions!) and hung them around the little buds. I loved how simple and spring-like it looked!

We’ve stopped the tradition several years ago, but someday I want to start it up again for my own family.

Hopefully, we can add a few each year and really wow the neighborhood!

I love those little oranaments. How fun!

We didn’t do an Easter tree, but my daughter and I made a Cherry Blossom Origami Lantern tree that I think you might like seeing — I am so in love with it, I’m not sure I’ll be able to take it down any time soon!
