I love Easter. I love the bright colors. The bunnies. The flowers. The glitter, and baskets, and messes of fake grass, and special Sunday dresses, and everything else that I have been raised to correlate with the holiday. But my short time in Russia taught me a second version of how some people view Easter. A version that I have been impressed with and clinging to ever since.
When I think of Easter now, I tend to wonder how I can make it more meaningful than just bunnies, chicks, and cutesy baskets, and I always picture the Russian eggs among other things you can read about by clicking here. About mid-way through March this year, I realized it was time to take down the Valentine’s decor and think about whether I wanted to decorate for Easter. So I went to Pinterest. Aaand everything was covered in Easter bunnies, of course. Which I think is so fun and cute, by the way! For this holiday though, I just always want something…Russian!
So I sat down and tinkered with banner ideas until I made one for myself that felt like Russia. I have to say that I totally understand if you don’t think it’s as cute as some of the bright bunnies I saw on Pinterest. BUT. As soon as I started to see the first couple of pieces come together, I was so proud of this! It really just captured some of the beautiful traditions I saw on the single best holiday celebration I’ve ever been part of.
Maybe one day I’ll get a fancy camera to show off my creations and learn how to take a decent picture, but for now you can check out the flowery details on the banner and print it off for FREE by logging into my exclusive freebies folder.
