I was so excited when Treetopia contacted me to try out one of their fabulous Easter trees. I knew this would be a fun project that my kids and I could do together, and bonus, I knew I could use the tree for Christmas as well! And I think it would even be cute for Valentine’s Day…. because it is PINK! The tree arrived on Saturday, and I was so excited to get it up and decorated. I moved the bar cart in my dining room, and set aside space in the corner for it. I put it together in 4 easy pieces. Here it is after I just put it up. (And please note I forgot to tweak and straighten the top, and noticed after I had my pictures! OOPS!) And that green tarp looking piece on my sideboard is the handy storage bag that came with it!
Sunday I headed off to Michael’s to find some fun decorations. I didn’t want to hang eggs all over and I knew I wanted to find butterflies. So that was what I started with as a plan! I found some adorable clip on butterflies in aqua and yellow, and also some tiny pink ones. I also found packages of daisy heads that were meant to be wired onto something, so I came home with those as well. IN my own stash I had a few miniature watering cans, so I added those to the decoration pile. Then I called the kids in to help me decorate. Sawyer wanted to know where the “boy decorations” were. Um…. butterflies and daisies aren’t boyish? So Emmy stuck around and had SO much fun! Her face lit up when she saw the pink tree with its lights on. Together, we clipped on butterflies, wired on daisies, and hung the watering cans for a happy Spring Easter tree.
Emmy said it was the most beautiful Easter tree ever! Look at how happy she was after we decorated it- she was so proud!
