    Default Easter Dresden for my Easter twigs!

    Every year at Easter in Sweden we take spring twigs and decorate them with feathers, eggs, chickens... Things to do with spring! This is mine this year (my 7 yr old daughter made a much more colourful version!) and of course it needed it's very own Dresden. I made it out of some scraps and other fabrics I thought fit my decorations.

    So you do this where you live too?

    I love that! For Christmas I have a plant called Christmas berry. The berries turn red in winter. I decorate that.

    No, never heard of it, but I like it! I do plan to have a small tree or "ornament display tree" that I will keep up year round and change the decorations, though.

    No... We put out grass and eggs, the Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life. I also display some of my cross collection with my eggs decoration.

    I have some fabric I plan to make a Dresden table topper with too. Spring colors chevron fabric.

    I have not heard of that tradition either...but it is very pretty. And what a great idea to use a Dresden plate to bring color to the table.
