If you celebrate Ostara (pagans/wiccans) need some help for ostara thanks

What do you buy for it? How do you decorate your altar? I do not have much to spend so i wanted to see what everyone else does. I got my girls the normal eggs and dye to do. We have baskets from last year. I usually buy things from sacredmists.com but i cant right now. Any suggestions please!? thanks :)

  • Any seeds will do. Do you garden? Blessing the garden is also a good practice.

    Or telling the story (PG version) of Demeter and Persephone and reenact/celebrate Persephone's return.

    Decorate the altar with white (for the Maiden) and pastels for new growth.

  • I dye eggs, but I am also working on plastered eggs as keep sakes too... I don't keep an alter up 24/7 with 4 kitties...
    I will start my herbs (in small pots) and decorate the house in pastel colors...
    if you google you can find some nice food recipes that you and the children can do together too.. I am making breads,
    and plan on a nice dinner...
