Easter is just around the corner, and in Germany, Easter is celebrated heartily as one of the very most important holidays of the year.
At The Christmas Sleigh in Middleburg, Virginia, we invite you to visit our enormous selection of German Easter decorations. Everything you might need for your table or for the Easter Egg Hunt is right here. Come in person or view our online selection and see how Germans celebrate Easter in their own homes! Make some of these lovely traditions your own.
With the nation's most comprehensive selection of entirely authentic German Easter decorations, there is a special heirloom in the making for each member of your family! Whether it's the beautifully hand painted pewter collection from the artisans at Wilhelm Schweizer(with their whimsical rabbits and colorful Easter eggs galore); or the 19th century paper mache' fillable Easter eggs that delight young and old; or the hand painted actual Easter eggs from Salzburg, Austria, there are festive Easter decorations for the entire family. Wait until you see our goose eggs and Ostrich eggs, the real deal!
This year we even have a beautiful selection of stuffed rabbits in all sizes. There is even a bunny purse for the youngest little Princess in the family. There are embroidered linen napkins from Germany featuring all sorts of spring and Easter motifs, and beautiful handmade German Easter candles, adding to the festive appearance of your Easter table.
And don't forget to delight your family with a typical German centerpiece of forsythia branches or pussy willows heavily laden with beautifully decorated eggs. It is a family tradition in our house and it wouldn't feel like Easter without it. We have collected so many special eggs over the years that our pussy willow centerpiece now boasts more than 100 hand painted eggs. It is just stunning. Absolutely perfect for this joyful display is the handpainted eggs from Austria. They are each festooned with ribbon to hang the egg on the branch. We have a terrific assortment of these beautifulhand painted eggs. Choose one, or ten but add to your collection each year. The smaller of the paper mache' nostalgic eggs are ideal for the ever popular Easter
Egg Hunt. And the very largest of these eggs makes a most dramatic Easter gift for that special someone! So come by or peruse our online shop and begin your very own family tradition this Easter with a special heirloom in the making from The Christmas Sleigh!
