"You can never tell what might happen on Easter. You're not always sure when it is coming, even though you go to Sunday school. You can guess it is near when Mama makes you stand still while she fits a new dress on you. But it is only when Good Friday comes and you have hot cross buns for tea, that you know for certain Easter will be the day after tomorrow." -A Tale for Easter, Tasha Tudor
Easter falls on a different date every year so it can be easy to be caught off guard by this wonderful Spring holiday. This year Easter is on Sunday, April 16th!
Snow may still be on the ground here in the Green Mountains but the first day of spring was warm and sunny. Soon the snow will melt and it will be mud-season. Before we know it the world will be in bloom and Easter will be upon us!
Making perfectly personalized Easter baskets for family and loved ones is one of the many delights of Spring! Today we are going to share some ideas for creating Tasha Tudor themed Easter Baskets. Whether you’re preparing a more traditional Easter Basket or a themed basket for a corgi lover, a kitchen maven, or an avid gardener we have something for you!
With great delight, we introduce you to Taproot Magazine, a quarterly publication "celebrating food, farm, family and craft through writing, photography and the arts, both fine and domestic." Our very own Amy Tudor (Tasha's granddaughter-in-law) had the pleasure of writing a piece about the Tudor Family's way of life titled "At Home with Tasha Tudor" for their twenty-first issue Weave.
Tasha Tudor embraced the stillness of winter. While some people spend this cold and dark season dreaming of springtime warmth, Tasha relished the invitation to slow down and enjoy long candle-lit evenings in front of the hearth with family, walks through freshly fallen snow, and the subtle beauty of New England blanketed in white. To honor Tasha's love of winter, we at Tasha Tudor and Family are having a White Sale!
“It may come as a surprise that I am a romantic. This trait sometimes puts me at odds with my practical side, but I have, over the years, attempted to meld the two. Being a romantic, or at least admitting it, is a practical way to enjoy life--it frees one to make the most of everything.”-Tasha Tudor, All for Love
After the excitement and activity of Christmas, the stillness and quiet of midwinter brings a welcome peace. When the weather outside is harsh the magical warmth of home, family, and friends is such a comfort. And for the Tudor Family, the chill of January and February has always been wonderfully offset by the eager anticipation and preparation that leads up to Valentine’s Day.
“I haven’t any modesty when it comes to my garden. I'll boast like mad.” -Tasha Tudor
