Did you know? Chocolate Easter eggs have been around since 1873 when Cadbury created their first mass-produced eggs. Since that time, chocolate has become a staple in Easter baskets around the world. Fill yours with handmade chocolates from Stage Stop Candy.
While we love to fill our baskets with all sorts of candies, Jelly Beans at Easter are a given. Though thought to have been derived from a combination of Turkish Delight and Jordan Almonds, the earliest reference to the actual jelly bean is regarding a Boston candy maker, William Schrafft, who urged people to send his jelly beans to Union soldiers fighting in the Civil War. The Candy Shop has jelly beans by the bag, or by the pound to fill your basket with color!
Easter baskets are said to have originated thousands of years ago as a celebration of Spring. After months of cold weather, Spring was celebrated along with praying for blessings over newly planted crops, which would soon be gathered in baskets. While hard to find, beautiful handmade baskets are still in high demand. Nantucket Basketworks of Cape Cod has heirloom quality baskets that will last for generations.
When the winter has been hard—like this one—there’s nothing more beautiful than Spring flowers that begin to peek through the darkness. Whether you plant them in your yard, or simply decorate your home with them, flowers are a beautiful reminder of new life to come. Stop by 1-800-Flowers for the most beautiful planters and baskets on the web!
