With Easter quickly approaching we’re starting to get prepared for the bank holiday weekend! Whether Easter for you is a time of celebration, a time for family holidays or just a chance to sit back and reflect. It is also a fantastic time to welcome change.

Are you planning a family Sunday dinner? Maybe you are in charge of the Easter egg hunt this year? Whatever the occasion, you want your home to look its best. There are some fantastic ways to give your home a touch of Easter celebration without breaking the bank.

Pretty Easter Pastels:

Easter Pastels

Pastel colours are perfect this time of year. From the soft elegance of lilac to a¬†fun and jovial lemon there’s so much to choose from! A great way to include this in your home is to shabby chic some old furniture; it’s a great way to recycle and breathe new life into something old. Play with dainty pinks and pale greys for a feminine look, or a coastal sea blue will liven up any space you feel could do with fresh air.

Spruce Up Your Garden:

Spring is the ideal time to treat your garden to a little TLC, as your family will start to spend more time outside. You don’t need to spend a fortune on plants and furniture to make your garden a sanctuary, sometimes all it takes is a few hours, some hard work and some clever lighting. With mornings getting light earlier and days staying light longer, Spring is the perfect time to start attending to your garden. Some outdoor lighting is a great place to start, as it will make your space feel much more welcoming and allow you to enjoy it later into the evenings. We love these decking lights!

Another way to enjoy your garden in spring is to prepare it for Summer! Thinking ahead is very important here, and we love these tips to get you started! As well as creating a beautiful space for your Easter activities, investing some attention this time of year will pay off when your family and friends are enjoying the space in a few months. Win Win!

Get Baking:

Easter is for many people a time to indulge your sweet tooth. With chocolate eggs in abundance, hot cross buns in high demand and simnel cake a family favourite, it’s time to don your oven gloves!
