The History of Easter Trees

Decorating trees or plants with eggs is a custom that comes from Germany called Ostereierbaum, meaning Easter egg tree. German native Volker Kraft even became famous for decorating a tree in his garden with Easter eggs every year. In 2012, there were approximately 10,000 eggs hanging from its branches. That's nothing compared to the Guinness record: With 76,596 eggs, the Zoo Rostock GmbH in Rostock, Germany, holds the title of the largest Easter egg tree.

The History of Easter Trees

Easter trees also originate from a Swedish tradition known as Påskris, which strings all kinds of ornaments including Easter eggs and feathers on trees. Today, people all over the world create their own whimsical versions by gathering foraged branches into a vase and hanging ornaments made from dyed Easter eggs and more. Whether you have German or Swedish roots or are looking for a holiday-themed table decoration, try one of these adorable takes on the trend.
