Time seems to be flying by this year and Easter will be here before we know it. Do you celebrate Easter? I grew up celebrating it and with two young children of my own, I continue on those same traditions in my family. We have an Easter egg hunt on Easter Day with the family and the kids enjoy baskets full of candy and surprises from the Easter bunny. It`s quite a fun time for our family.
Well, I teamed up with Papyrus to show some adorable decorations and gift ideas for the 2017 Easter season.
The word Papyrus (pah·pie·rus) comes from the earliest form of paper crafted from the papyrus plant. PAPYRUS was founded in the family kitchen of Marcel and Margrit Schurman in 1950.
Inspired by a love of fine art, they had a vision for products of uncompromising quality which provided the starting point from which genuine personal connections are made. They presented their products in an inviting gallery setting to encourage engagement with the products and with a friendly helpful staff. 60 years and over 450 stores later, we are now united behind the Schurman Retail Group banner and operate multiple retail brands; PAPYRUS, NIQUEA.D, Paper Destiny, Carlton Cards Retail and American Greetings retail. Under the leadership of Marcel’s and Margrit’s daughter, Dominique Schurman, Schurman Retail Group is charting a future shaped by modern, relevant and elegant design. Across North America, Schurman Retail Group, under its retail brands, offers an ever-expanding array of products including custom printed announcements, products for entertaining, greeting cards, gift wrap, gift bags, stationery, note cards, journals and unique gift products.
papyrus sent a variety of goodies for us to check out that they thought that not only would we love, but you all would love too. Guess what?! We loved them all! Here`s everything you see featured:
This adorable bunny is ready for Easter with his decorated egg in hand! Cuddle up with this sweet bunny and his floppy ears that you are sure to love! The bunny itself is super adorable and was a quick favorite! I had to remind myself I have children and it wasn`t nice to keep the nice soft bunny. On the up side, my 3-year-old was fully of giggles when he got the big bunny!
Add a unique touch to your Easter decor with this lovely terrarium. A nest accented with flowers holds speckled eggs beneath the glass dome. What I love about this is that the done is secured to it so it isn`t loose and doesn`t just come off. As a mom of two children and a house full of pets, this is definitely a plus! I`ve had something similar for candles, except the dome came off. My children kept playing with it and eventually it got separated and my candle was damaged. The only thing is, put this in a safe place because the dome is
glass so it is
Adorn your cupcakes and hors d`oeuvres at your Easter gathering with these adorable party picks made from felt and paper. These are so cute and the perfect way to dress up your snack table Easter day. I mean, why use plain toothpicks when you can have these adorable Easter themed ones?!
Wrap your Easter treats in this adorable gift bag that features a puffy chick surrounded by Easter eggs and topped with grosgrain polka-dot ribbon handles. In our family, we bring little goodie bags for the children to our family Easter get together. This bag is adorable and the perfect size for putting small trinkets and candy in for the kids. Did I mention how cute it is?!
This sweet little lamb is ready to snuggle close to someone special this Easter. She`s sure to bring a smile to anyone`s day. This little lamb is not only adorable, but super soft as well. My 3 year old son thought it was "awww cute" as he put it. This is perfect for a basket filler or really for any reason!
This sweet bunny is ready to snuggle this Easter. With super soft fur and signature Precious Moments teardrop eyes he`s sure to become a lifelong friend. I love the "Precious Moments" brand this stuffed bunny was no exception. It`s very soft and absolutely adorable. Plus, my children loved it!
This fuzzy green bunny adds the perfect touch to your Easter decor. The raffia bow and grass green hue bring a touch of spring indoors. I ended up placing mine in the center of a 1920s piano I own along with the 2 wicker bunnies you see pictured above. This has a nice little weight to it and is extremely nice quality. This one is a home decorating piece; not a toy for the kids. I love how it has that whimsical/classic sort of garden look to it. Simple, yet beautiful!
This grass bunny adds the perfect touch to your Easter decor. The burlap bow and basket of eggs bring a touch of spring indoors. I love the natural look and feel of this piece. It is light weight, yet extremely nice quality. It matches well with the (above) mossy bunny. Again, this is a lovely home decorating piece and not a toy for children so keep it out of their little hands. It`s very classy and elegant and would bring out any Easter center piece!
Add a fun touch to your Easter gift with this pretty tissue paper that features glittered teal, red, orange and purple dots. The tissue paper is a very nice quality and would match any Easter themed bag!
This carrot plush unzips to an adorable cuddly bunny that your little one is sure to adore! I love this! Another item I had to resist keeping. This is made with high quality materials and beyond adorable. I love how the bunny comes fully out and is not
attached to the carrot. So it`s basically two toys in one. My son got a kick out of it and was able to easily get the bunny in and out without any issues.
This colorful polka-dot Easter egg plush unzips to an adorable cuddly chick that your little one is sure to adore! Again, this is made with high quality materials and beyond adorable. I love how the little chick comes fully out and is not
attached to the egg. So it`s basically two toys in one. My son got a kick out of this just as much as the carrot (above) and was able to easily get the chick in and out without any issues.
Complete with bunny, colorful eggs, chicks with glitter details and paper embellishments, this medium Easter basket gift bag is die-cut and includes yellow grosgrain ribbon handles. This gift bag is beyond adorable and is really well made. Again, this is perfect for giving little Easter themed gifts in. I love all the attention to details and the the 3D sort of appearance this bag has to it. It just really stands out to others on the market and would make any gift that
much more exciting.
As you can wee Paprus has quite the variety of items for your Easter needs from home decor, gift wrapping and gift giving items. Each and every item I received was high quality and by high quality I mean much nicer than I honestly expected. The tissue paper was a bit thicker than other brands and not as flimsy. The same goes for the paper bags. The plush toys were all soft, well sewn and well constructed. Like I said, high quality. Needless to say, I had a very pleasant experience with Papyrus and would certainly recommend them!
