Living in England, I’m used to people decorating their houses for Christmas, some even spice up their homes for Halloween each year. One thing, however, I had never experienced were houses being decorated for Easter. Let me introduce you to Alsace, France. My mum and I were not only charmed by the fairytale, picturesque villages like Eguisheim, but also by the way they were decorated. As you drive through the region around Easter, you will see cardboard rabbits popping up from roundabouts, eggs hanging from the houses and more Easter decorations pouring out of shops. I’ve never been anywhere like it.
Most of these photos were taken whilst following the famous Alsace wine route (still the best wine I have ever tried!). I hope you find these decorations as adorable as I do.
People even decorated their garages for Easter in Riquewihr.
Colmar was full of atmospheric and well-decorated Easter markets.

The caffes and restaurants joined in on the Easter decorations.
The wineries also got into the Easter spirit.
Be sure to look in the least obvious places for Easter bunnys and eggs hiding.
I wish we decorated our buildings like this in England! This was in Ribeauville.
