Spring is in the air and with it comes the promise of new beginnings, warm days and of course, special occasions. As a little girl, I vividly remember shopping for my special occasion dresses, like the ones I always wore on Easter.
I could not wait to pick it out, bring it home and parade around, whirling and twirling for my dad and grandma. Now that I am a mama to three kiddos, I love to dress them up in fancy duds. It makes even the most ordinary event seem extraordinary.
Pink Princess has a wide variety of beautiful, fun spring and summer dresses for girls, as well as suits for boys that are perfect for Easter, Mother’s Day, birthdays or any special occasion. My daughter chose this gorgeous lilac number and I’ve practically had to pry it off of her.
Not only does it scream, “Happy Spring,” it is the quintessential Easter dress, and I know she’ll be wearing it to many special occasions. For dresses and fancy pieces that are equally adorbs, shop Pink Princess Easter and Spring dresses and suits. (Second day air shipping starts at $9.95. Free Shipping and Returns on orders over $29.99.)
This year we kicked off the season of Easter with a new family tradition. The Bunny With the Basket has come to visit and it looks like he's a keeper. This charming tale tells of how the Easter Bunny and Santa swap secret lists, and how your special bunny will report back to the Easter Bunny via the special golden egg. The children have delighted in this new tradition, carefully placing notes and treats in the golden egg, hoping for the same in return. The Bunny With the Basket is a sweet story that definitely has found a place among our family traditions.
The kids already staked their claim on the book with their favorite write on labels from Mabels' Labels. Mabels' Labels make the perfect gift for any occasion. We love ordering them for all of our friends and family~they make a unique and special personalized gift. Plus they are super practical and useful~BONUS! We always say that these labels stick to everything we need them to, and nothing we don't! Our favorite is The Big Kaboodle™ Label Pack.

To help celebrate, below you'll find plenty of Easter options to start new traditions, fill the baskets and dress for the special day! We stocked the baskets with non candy treats this year. From Kiss glittery nail polish, to Yardley soap and Lypsol must have lip protectant to a light refreshing fragrance from CLEAN, these beauty items are sure to please.
You have to include creative play items, right? We love RoseArt's Washable Sidewalk Chalk Paint, scented bubbles (smells like Jelly Belly jellybeans! and PEEPS marshmallows-complete with bunny wand!) and of course Mabel's Labels to keep of everything! This year we also tucked in an on trend rash guard, board shorts and must have flip flops from The Children's Place and placed it all in a personalized basket from Personal Creations. We will finish off the Easter surprises with a few chocolate treats tucked into their new shoes from Pediped.
