So first off, HOPPY EASTER EVERYBODY!!! AND, Happy 4:20! END THE DRUG WAR!
My question is: Why didn’t Google even do a doodle? No Easter doodle, no Cannabis doodle. I am disappoint. SO, here is a beautiful doodle from 2013:

So last year’s awesome Easter blog post was about fabulous Easter hats and bonnets. Check it out: https://doyoudesigntoo.wordpress.com/2013/03/31/happy-easter/
What better way to celebrate Easter/420 with some greenery? This year, we’ll look at the most awesome Easter tree ever, with a few not-as-awesome. Here goes…
This tree is kind of neat, if a bit junky and with that signature green conical-ness, not fooling anyone. It’s a Christmas tree, with Easter trappings. Mmmm-kay. It has appeal and earnestness though (I do like the ornaments), and it does make me smile. I give it a thumbs up (check out that bow topper with “bunny ears”!).
Very cute little tree, still a conical “evergreen” type, but *those pastel rainbow limbs* Mmmmmm… Cute vintage ornaments too. Two thumbs up 🙂
One of those very cool cone moss egg trees. They are fun to make, but they also sell nice ones at places like Jo-Ann’s crafts stores:
One of my absolute FAVORITE Easter trees, I soooo want this in my house. I absolutely love it.
A similar sort of version for your table-top (I love those little ceramic figurines around the base. Overall very harmonious and pleasant arrangement):
Okay…ready? Ready for the best Easter tree EVER? It’s pretty wonderful…
C’mon, get a little closer…
Go ahead and touch them!
This wonderful tree is a apple tree in Germany (where Easter trees are called Ostereierbaum) and is festooned by Christa and Volker Kraft (ha, ha…Kraft! They certainly do craft!). It has over 9,500 ornate eggs. Some eggs are sent in from other countries. There are painted eggs, bejeweled eggs, eggs covered in seashells, caved eggs… Read more about this tree here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_egg_tree
They have been doing this since 1965. Read even more here (very interesting article): http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/50-year-tradition-couple-trims-tree-10-000-easter-eggs-n56841
