We're all familiar with the ole Christmas tree, but have you ever had an Easter tree in your house? 
The Easter tree is an old Central European custom where you hang decorated hollow real eggs or painted decorative eggs from branches of trees, usually budding pussy willow, quince or cherry. Here's how to make one here.
For the eggs themselves, whether you like them glittered, dyed or stenciled, here are some beautiful options for your Easter home decor and table setting.
