Garden Party Easter Baskets

GARDEN PARTY EASTER BASKETS FOR KIDS

The kids’ Easter baskets have become one of my favorite things to put together! I love all the pastels and cute spring items to choose from and coming up with a theme is always fun! We’ve been planning out our little urban garden lately so I thought it would be so cute to involve the twins with Garden Party Easter baskets!
