Ophelia's Easter Basket


One tradition I started when Eva was born was making an easter basket every year. As much as I know easter is all about chocolate, we always like to give something else too. Another tradition within this tradition is that we always use the same basket. The basket was used at our wedding which the bridesmaids carried confetti in. I love the fact that we can use them every year. Luckily for us we have 2 baskets. 

This year will be baby Ophelia's first easter. She's 4 months old now so here's what I have bought for her basket.


I've had my eye on this super cute hooded bunny jumper from The White Company for a while and easter was clearly the perfect time to get it. I adore The White Company. In fact Ophelia's entire room is decorated with things from there.



This adorable small teddy is from Jellycat. If you squeeze him he makes a 'baaa' sound. We love Jellycat soft toys in our house. They really are super soft and if you don't have any in your home, I urge you to get one. They are the best teddies to snuggle up to.



I don't think there's a character more suited for Easter than Mr Peter Rabbit himself. I bought this Buggy Book from John Lewis. It's an ideal size for Ophelia and very useful as it clips on to a buggy, car seat or bouncer.



This Dress is also from John Lewis. I love the print and I thought it was quite easter themed but it can be worn whenever. it's really good value for money. I actually bought Ophelia 3 dresses from there on the same day as their current collection is stunning. I could have bought so much more too. Look out for an upcoming wishlist post.



Finally, I bought this book. Even though we have mountains of books in the house, I think it's important for Ophelia to have her own collection. I thought Spot's First Easter Book was ideal seeing as it's Ophelia's first easter. It's also a lift the flap book which I love. 



So that's her easter basket for this year. Do you do easter baskets? Have you got any easter traditions?

  10. That jumper and dress are gorgeous! I have to admit I'm relegating myself to the bad mum corner because I don't really do anything for Easter, but it's a lovely idea and fan that you've got the baskets from your wedding xx
