Old-Fashioned Tree Decorations
to Celebrate the Springtide
Is there anything prettier than flowering branches hung with Easter ornaments? In Europe, it has been a centuries-old tradition to cut budding branches in early Spring from cherry, apple, and plum trees to decorate with gaily-decorated eggs. Here in North America, pussy willow branches and large bouquets of forsythia are also used as charming Easter "trees," and in recent years it has become quite popular among our collector friends to feature Easter-theme ornaments on a feather tree for a charming Springtime display.
