Just Hatched at Gardner Village: Everything for Easter (and an Easter Brunch giveaway!)

Easter is March 27 this year, which has put a little extra spring in our step here at Gardner Village. Hop in to find your Sunday best, basket necessities, and even a few baby Easter pals! <3

Easter Attire
Like a fresh spring fashion show, Spoiled Rotten is lined with the latest in seasonal fashions for babies, toddlers, and children.

It's all about the texture for the little ladies--lots of layers, lace, and other girlie frills!

The little dudes are going to look rad in plaid! I mean, get outta town with how dapper this is!

Don't forget the hats! After all, everything's better with an Easter bonnet on it!

I met the loveliest family during my visit. Moms/sisters and grandma were finding the perfect pieces for their three beautiful babes. It was such fun to watch. In fact, I was so taken with this happy bunch that I asked if they'd mind my sharing a few quick pics of their shopping adventure with you. They were more than willing to oblige. (Yay!) Take a look:

This is Paisley, who was looking quite pretty in peach!

Little Bailey took our breath away in her ruffles.

And nine-month-old Preslyn had me wishing my own baby were with me on this shopping adventure so we could join them in the dress-up fun!

Come in for your own impromptu fashion show. The staff at Spoiled Rotten is so kind and willing to help you find your perfect head-to-toe ensemble. (And maybe a few Easter-basket extras!)

Easter Decadence
What would this season be without baskets of sweet treats to enjoy? Rumor has it Mr. Cottontail himself does much of his Easter hopping... errrr, shopping at Chocolate Covered Wagon.

There are SO many egg-celent options to choose from!

Personalized chocolate eggs are only $6.95, and there are numerous options to choose from. Choices include chocolate cream, peanut butter, caramel, rocky road, cookies & cream, divinity, penuchi, German chocolate, grasshopper (Oreo and mint), chocolate walnut, orange cream, sea salt caramel, and raspberry cheesecake. Is your mouth watering yet? And you can get your eggs personalized in just minutes.

Wouldn't a few of these colorful sticks look awesome mixed in with those dyed eggs?

Whether you choose your own basket fixin's or have the friendly staff at Chocolate Covered Wagon build you an impressive basket/box on site, you'll leave the Easter Bunny feeling envious of your awesome basket abilities!

Easter Pals
Take a peek at the newest peeps to arrive at The Farm. Bring your babes in to meet these sweethearts and create an Easter tradition they'll remember and adore!

This adorable little guy is SunSuHan, which is Korean for "pure, innocent soul." He is such a love. I haven't stopped thinking about him since visiting The Village last week. If you stop by, try making a clicking sound with your tongue and saying "baaabyyy." Each time I did this, he'd come over to me, open his sweet little mouth and reply, "baaaaa!" It was THE cutest!

But be respectful of mama. She keeps a close eye on her precious SunSuHan. Don't they make a perfect duo?

SunSuHan is joined by a few other Easter pals, including baby chicks and an Easter bunny or two. When assisted, friends at The Farm will even let you hold these little loves, which would make for a great spring photo.

Easter Pics
Speaking of great spring photos, call Camera Shy today to schedule a mini Easter session. Furry friends will be waiting to join you, making for the prettiest of pics!

Easter Eats
Celebrate Easter in a big way without big work by joining us at The Gathering Place for a delicious Easter brunch. Reservations aren't taken for this one. Instead, it's first come, first served. So hop in early and enjoy the spoils. Chocolate fountain... Need I say more?

It's a Spring Thing
Signs of spring are everywhere at Gardner Village. From ducks wandering the paths to tiny flowers sprouting from the soil. Make the most of the sunshine and come by today.

Happy Easter from your friends at Gardner Village!
