I really enjoy getting into a new season and altering my home and wardrobe to suit. I love Summer brights and mustard and maroon in Autumn but Easter is definitely my favourite. If my whole life could be pastel coloured and in the shape of an egg that would be bliss.
Anyone who has Pinterest will have seen the gorgeous creations that can be made to fill your home with Easter spirit. However, if you’re like me and colouring in is as crafty as you can manage I’ve found a few things that will do the job and not cost much either. I can’t remember the exact prices of things but nothing is more than £10.
If you don’t want anything too OTT this cute wooden sign from http://www.notonthehighstreet.com is perfect.
I love bunting! These thick paper ones come as a pack of three from Home Bargains and are so sweet. Each one has 14 flags on so they’re a decent length.
The poor people who are spending Easter Sunday with me will be forced to indulge in the season and wear bunny ears. All day. Even to the restaurant for lunch. These come in a pack of 8 from http://www.notonthehighstreet.com.
The long weekend is the perfect time to enjoy some baking. Cupcakes are always a favourite and these cases and decorations will really finish them off! All of this comes in a pack from Home Bargains.
If you enjoy eating cupcakes moreso than baking them (and who could blame you!) I’ve found most supermarkets produce a range that would look great decorating a table. These are super cheap from Aldi and are delicious.
Fresh flowers instantly brighten up a room and Spring offers the most gorgeous varieties. Tulips and daffodils are my personal Easter favourites.
Finally, if all else fails, you can’t beat dressing up your children! Adorable and will be hilarious to look back on when they’re older. This is our beautiful Easter Bunny! Those little plastic eggs are super cheap and I’ve filled them with dry pasta to turn them into little shakers. They are also perfect for an egg hunt for older children. She loves them!
Happy Easter everyone!
