EASTER EGGS & PASTEL BISCUITS

There’s one thing at Easter here in the UK that I’m kind of obsessing about because we don’t really have that in Germany: The huge chocolate Easter eggs! The sweets sections in every store are piled up with them, you can get Easter eggs with or without filling, milk or dark chocolate depending on your taste. Since I only like milk or white chocolate, Joerg surprised me with a white chocolate Easter egg with pistachios. We’ll be driving to Germany by car this month and I fear we will have more chocolate eggs on board than clothes. Even though Easter will be over by then, we know our family will love it. We also have a tradition at Christmas since I was little: My father always gives each of his 3 girls a Kinder chocolate egg. You can usually get them during Christmas and Easter and I love chocolate from Kinder. Compared to the eggs you can get here in the UK, they are still tiny though. easter eggs
 

Since it’s Easter season I ordered a tin filled with beautiful biscuits from Biscuiteers in London again. I already did that for Christmas (you can find the post here) and still get excited about it. I just love pastel colours for Easter. I know: The biscuits are almost too pretty to eat and you just want to look at them. To be honest with you, I ordered the tin for Joerg because as you know I usually stay away from gluten but couldn’t help and have a small bite. They are so good and make wonderful presents too. By the way, you can also get gluten free options which is fantastic. Biscuiteers offers icing classes as well and I would love to learn more about the icing technique. easter eggs

 
 

We had such a lovely room at Llangoed Hall in Wales and thought why not use it and bring some Easter spirit to it by arranging a little table? We ordered tea, were able to pick daffodils from the garden and as we’ll be moving over the Easter holidays, we just brought them forward a little. easter eggs

 
 

Do you have any plans for Easter?

Ah these biscuits are beautiful and such a nice idea instead of the usual chocolatey Easter treats (although they are ace too!) I love Wales and am looking for somewhere to spend a few days away this spring so will check out your linked post now 🙂 Lisa

Aww thank you Ruth, it just has to be especially because we don’t see each other that often. I’m so looking forward to our reunion. And I’m so glad you like the outfit.x

Oh goodness! The cutest post ever! We never used to get Huge Chocolate Easter Eggs in Estonia so I’m still getting used to traditions here – even after 18 years!
Love your denim shirt! x

So glad you like it Tatyana, thanks so much. In Germany chocolate Easter bunnies are the thing and colourful boiled eggs. The British market is so different and I love the huge chocolate eggs!xx
