Celebrating Easter en Familia with Kohl's

How do you celebrate Easter? What are your family traditions? Did you give something up for Lent? How do you add a touch of your cultura to Pascuas? We were very excited to partner with Kohl's to show how #LatinaBloggers celebrate, decorate and spend Easter with their familias and loved ones. Kohl's was the perfect one-stop destination for Latinos to buy all the need for Easter - fashion, home decor and more.

En Familia

Easter is a time where familias, culturas and traditions mix for an awesome and colorful result.

(Oh! And if you're like me and ever wondered why there is a bunny and eggs - just keep reading 'cause we've got an answer for you.)

"Una de las cosas que hace grandioso a Estados Unidos es que cada inmigrante que llega aporta un cambio a la cultura. La tradición del conejo y los huevos fue traído por Alemanes, el conejo representa fertilidad y los huevos representan el comienzo de una nueva vida. Los niños ponen canastas para que el conejo de pascua ponga sus huevos y el día de pascua los niños salen a buscarlo. Además se junta con la celebración de Semana Santa y con la bienvenida de la primavera. Y ahora que Benjamin tiene casi 20 meses, sé que es un plan que va a disfrutar muchísimo."

"When I told my daughters that we had to go shopping for spring and easter they weren’t too excited, until I told them we were going to Kohl’s. Kohl’s is one of the only stores that we find outfits that fit all our individual styles plus all the easter décor, tabletop, seasonal table linens and of course all the goodies for the easter baskets like candy and toys. Kohl’s, is our natural destination to plan and celebrate las Pascuas (Easter)."

"Ever since I was a little girl, my family always set up a beautiful spread for guests while my mom cooked Easter dinner. We would go to church, pick up my grandmother from home and set a table with appetizers and things to drink while my mom made her famous asopao de camarones. It’s a tradition that I’ve kept even when it was just my son and I at home alone as a homage to my family back east, who I love and miss dearly. May the traditions live on!"

Colombiana en California

Como me sé de memoria el orden de las secciones del almacén, llegué directamente a uno de los departamentos que más me gusta: el de cocina y comedor. Allí encontré individuales, servilletas, platos, refractarias, conejitos de cerámica de todos los tamaños…¡no sabía qué escoger porque lo quería todo!

La Pascua es una de las celebraciones que más me ha gustado festejar desde que llegué a California, pero son pocas las veces que he tenido la oportunidad de disfrutarlas en casa. Siempre estamos invitados a un gran banquete en la casa de la familia política, y por tal razón no tenía objetos de decoración alusivos a la fiesta.

Poetry and Inspiration with Dove Hair

Dove Love Your Curls Earlier this year Dove Hair launched the Love Your Curls campaign, which featured real girls and women around the world sharing their own curly hair stories. It's an amazingly beautiful and empowering campaign, and we are honored to be a part of it.

The campaign also comes with a lovely book filled with poetry by award winning author Taiye Selasi and illustration by renowned illustrator Annick Poirier. We love so much and think it would be a lovely gift for that special curly hair girl in your life. You can download and personalize it here! .

Our #LatinaBloggers and #LatinaCreators know the curly hair story all too well, and shared what they're passing down to their girls and their own journey of loving their curls.

"After spending hours shopping and looking at cushions (it was so hard to choose just one style, all of them were great!) I came back home with all the necessary goodies I found at my local Pier 1 Imports store. The things were so beautiful and I was so excited that it actually just took me a couple minutes to get everything in the right place."

"Ahora sí estoy lista para recibir a mis invitados. Pero antes deseo darle las gracias a las dos atentas asociadas de la tienda Pier 1 Imports quienes me dejaron ver, tocar, mover y sentir todos los productos, mientras charlamos sobre ideas para crear mi espacio."

"These are Assorted Mini Flower Mirrors that were in a giant jar at the checkout counter. They were only a dollar each! I used up every last cent of my gift card with a handful of these. I used tacky glue to add hanging wire to the back of each one so I could use them to fill space and add a pop of sparkle."

"In dreaming up an outdoor oasis that makes me happy, it always comes down to family legacy. For me, that means a backyard where the kids can play and feel comfortable, where we can create family meals and where Daddy D and I can sit comfortably while listening to the laughter of our children."

CrestLatino LatinaBloggers

Each blogger posted three photos of themselves on Instagram showing off their fabulous smiles and also joined us on the night of the Red Carpet event for our #SmileStyle Twitter Party hosted by @jeannettekaplun @diariodelamoda @nanysklozet @kikarochamoda. Winners took home gift cards and Crest 3D White Whitestrips, all while watching the red carpet fun with us, their Twitter friends and Crest! And of course, it would not be a party without a Latina Blogger reporting live from the carpet. La Roja of Las Gringas Blog was sharing red-carpet-fun pictures and keeping us all in the know as the celebrities rolled in one by one. You can read all those details HERE!
