Ok so the weather is awful, typical bank holiday weather but at least the nights are brighter now and we have a few days off work to spend with the family, enjoy ourselves and relax. Oh and eat chocolate. As far as decorating the house is concerned, Easter is now a close second to Christmas with people decorating in much the same way, so here are a few ideas I styled when I was at Woman & home magazine, plus some others, to make your Easter special.
Set the table with a bowl at each place setting with a chick inside! Add flowers, including blossom picked from the garden, some colourful glassware and tie pretty ribbons and painted eggs from the chair backs womanandhome.com
A lovely arrangement that could sit on the hall table to welcome guests. Buy or get a florist to make a nest from twigs and pussy willow and fill with straw, various eggs and fresh flowers, they won't last long but they look so lovely. womandhome.com
A traditional Simnel-style cake is perfect at Easter, put mini eggs in a bowl, a pot of flowers and some plush bunnies on the table, bunny shaped paper plates add a fun touch. talkingtables.co.uk
Another simple idea, little flowers and moss in pretty tea cups. womanandhome.com
A table fully dressed for Easter. Glass cloches and domes really come into their own at Easter. Make sure you have plenty of mini eggs and pretty ribbons homesense.com
