Here in Lancaster County, we are ready for the April showers as families prepare for Easter that will be here April 16th.

Traditional Easter Egg Hunts are being planned both at homes and within the community. That means that there will be lots of sweat candy filled eggs and Easter baskets. Our Candy Kitchen has many different surprises that one might put inside plastic eggs or baskets for little ones to enjoy finding and delighting in confections that many generations have loved. If you are not from Lancaster County, you can still order and we can ship directly to you from our Country Store And Candy Kitchen.

Hard boiled eggs are being prepared to be dyed, decorated and embellished. A Pumpkin & A Princess shares over 30 ways to decorate eggs, including the “cool” things that youngsters are into.
