Easter and Spring are upon us here in the south eastern United States and I've been thinking about Easter Baskets. My husband and I prefer to celebrate with loved ones, a feast, and if we are doing Easter Baskets then filling these Baskets with items our children need. We prefer non candy items that our children will enjoy. I've seen several alternatives to the traditional candy filled Easter Baskets online, but these Umbrella Easter Baskets from Primal Dish were by far my favorite idea! Go check hers out to see for yourself!
