With Easter only a few weeks away and now the snow has gone, I'm starting to not only look forward to warmer days and fresh new green growth, but to think about the Easter break and how I can bring a nice fresh feel to the house and add pretty decor to celebrate.
I'll definitely be adding lots of spring blooms, narcissi and tulips being two favourites that add a really bright splash of colour but I do love buying British flowers and daffodils and narcissi are perfect for this time of year and is an inexpensive way to say 'hello spring'. Add a gorgeous vintage jug or planter and it can be as simple as that.
If you want to go a bit further for Easter day, what about some of these lovely ideas for decorating the table:
Love these pretty pink t-light holders!
All pink - a lovely idea to theme your table settings this Easter. Table decor doesn't have to be boring or all white, you can have fun experimenting with different themes and colours.
I love that candles can still play a part in spring decorating, especially when they have a fresh scent such as the Bay & Rosemary scented t-lights by St Eval. Find them here.
A great way to style flowers by using a stunning garden urn - you can find similar here. Fill this with oasis and your floral display will last for a couple of weeks.
So your decor this Easter doesn't have to be all about eggs!
But, speaking of eggs, there are lots of baking ideas on my Pinterest board, pretty cakes and biscuits that, although they might be beyond my abilities as a baker, they could be just the thing to add a really special touch to Easter, just look at how pretty cakes can be!
Maybe with a bit of practice! But I do love a cupcake and will have a go at something more simple perhaps with some good old Mini Eggs on top! I might be able to pull this off:
Hopefully my nephews will love them!
Wishing you a happy Easter.
Until next time x
Its a pretty new phenomenon here in the UK to decorate our houses for celebrations such as Halloween and Easter, but its becoming more and more popular each year and I love that it's become a 'thing' over here.
I try to do something to mark those occasions and this Easter I've used my white display tree (you can buy them at Hobbycraft here) and my own decorations to bring a bit of spring colour to my kitchen.
As you would expect I've used my own handmade hearts (available in my Etsy gift shop here) and a few padded hanging hearts made from scraps of material along with some lovely hanging eggs I bought a few years ago. I hope you like it - simple but a nod to the celebration this weekend and to sunny spring days. A few more ways to bring Easter to your table:
You'll find lots of inspiration for Easter decorating on my Pinterest boards here. It doesn't have to be costly or time consuming and could be just as simple as having lots of flowers in the house or a simple floral arrangement on the table for Easter sunday lunch, using different vintage homewares, such as bottles and jugs as shown below.
They still add plenty of warmth and atmosphere in the evenings whilst it is still chilly. Plus if you buy them this weekend, there's 10% off all candles!
Wishing you a light, bright, fresh and happy Easter.
Until next time x
