10 Cute Easter Cards & a Handy Spring Activities Checklist

Easter is Sunday, April 1st and we’re already starting to feel all the pastel chocolate-y feels! Who wouldn’t be excited for chocolate bunnies and best of all — spring! Flowers will be in bloom-mode and that almost always means good moods for everyone. But before we start brunching outdoors and doing spring cleaning, we’ll be celebrating Easter and all the traditions that go along with it. Painting the eggs with the kiddos and Easter egg hunts will be all the rage, but before the celebrations begin Easter greeting cards will need to be mailed.

Remember, whatever photo and card template you choose, make sure to keep it in theme with the rest of your wedding.

You don’t have to follow any strict rules, if you see a design that you absolutely love. Use it. Continue reading
