What’s in YOUR Easter Basket?
WHAT IT IS
Among many fond memories of my life in Deutschland are my memories of the Easter season. I was surprised and delighted, not only by the stunningly decorated blown eggs (pictured in my Art of the Easter Egg, posts I and II), but also by the gorgeous displays of Easter chocolates. I would walk into the department stores and be racked with indecision: scrumptious chocolate eggs in a dizzying variety of sizes and fillings were beautifully wrapped and on display in large wooden bins, alongside tantalizing collections of chocolate bunnies and other spring-themed candy-creations. This Easter I wanted to relive that experience of childlike wonder, and I knew just where to go.
Yup, I went back to Maison-Robert.
There, I found the delectable displays I craved.
If you live in the Atlanta area, you can hop on over. Click on http://www.maisonrobertchocolates.com/ for directions and details.
There were treats for all ages–such as this charming deviled-egg dish, each section filled with chocolates…
…and a darling bunny teapot, also filled with chocolates.
Shoppers collected their goodies in these lovely shopping baskets, which I thought was also a nice European-style touch.
Shoppers needn’t leave hungry, either, as there are sandwiches, croissants, cakes, and mounds of goodies available for purchase.
What could I do??
BRING IT HOME
I brought it home.
