Easter Basket Ideas

There will be two Easter baskets this year.

Last year I was in hospital bed rest with Bubby and didn’t have time to think about any of this, but this year we are celebrating every moment, with both our babies. :)

On a whim the other day I loaded up my shopping cart with things from the dollar store for each of their baskets… they actually had some good stuff!

I don’t know how each of you celebrate Easter but I know holidays usually just sting a little more – especially seeing all the adorable Easter outfits everywhere you go. I wanted to share some ideas of how you can remember your babies this year by sharing what we’ll be doing for Jenna :)

I bought her a sweet girly basket {no idea what I will do with it after but I’m sure it won’t be hard to think of something… it’s sooo pretty!}

♥ Inside I placed some fuchsia bubbles, which we’ll blow for her when we think of her, and at her gravesite.

♥ Sweet “Princess” bracelets, for her gravesite as well.

♥ Plastic windmills {is that what they’re called?} – so pretty in the spring time. For her garden or even the cemetery.

♥ Easter eggs with notes to Heaven for her inside

♥ Oh and some sheer butterflies to clip on somewhere :)

I hope some of these ideas help your grief and loss a little more this Easter Sunday.

Is there something special you do this time of year for your babies?

      Yea, it can be hard when they’re little! We found this adorable bunny sippy cup, so that’s the main thing, oh and bubbles for him too! He loves watching them fly away :)

    I LOVE the idea of the bubbles! We need to do that for Adelle, the boys would love to blow her some to Heaven! And it is time to go get a windmill too! Thanks, Fran!

    That is so sweet! We don’t do much for Easter. But I always imagined that once we had kids that would change. I hadn’t considered doing anything for Lewy, but after reading this, I kind of want to go hide an Easter egg for him somewhere.

    It looks like you might be able to plant some flowers in the basket! SO pretty Fuchsia ones :) We have not done anything for Easter. Well we do go and decorate kenner’s graveside. I imagine next year will be different!!
