Easter greetings from Finland!
Palm Sunday (10.4.) marks the beginning of planning and preparing for Easter in Finland. First chocolate Easter eggs are given to children in exchange for their decorated pussy willow branches.
This year you might get a Fazer Mignon chocolate egg too. We will add one as a gift for each order for dishes from Astialiisa Online for one week before Easter, 8.4.-14.4.
Easter (15-18.4) is the most important celebration of spring. Families gather together to celebrate the holidays and homes are decorated with yellow spring flowers. Finnish Easter specialties include decorations like bunnies (see the popular Arabia Bunny mugs) and easter chicks, as well as painting eggs and growing baby ryegrass in a bowl. These traditions all symbolise new life. Would you like to check our selection of vintage egg cups?
Our shopkeeper Tiina has just added a whole bunch of new stock especially for Easter! New items in the shop include Kauno egg cups, Yellow Teema and Faenza. Have a look at the new selection before they’re gone:
Wishing you happy spring moments,
Astialiisa Online team
