Easter brings the first 2018 post bank holiday break. We always hope for some fine and warm weather so that we can make a start with the Garden, but the reality is that rain is likely to make an appearance.
And just in case we always make rainy day plans. This year you will find us crafting (testing out a few new exciting things) and relaxing with family.
At this time of year we love adding some spring touches and Easter decorations to the house. It’s been a tradition for a few years. Baking a few treats is also something we enjoy, together with the Easter Sunday family dinner. A great weekend for spending time as a family, making memories.
With the four day weekend in full swing, we thought we would share with you some of Easter Inspiration we have gathered.

For many years we have added decorations to our homes for Easter, usually decorative eggs hanging from a branch in the sitting room, and a few in the olive tree by the front door. We also have pastel egg shaped battery operated lights on the kitchen table and of course fresh flowers – this year we have tulips and daffodils.
This year we have been looking for a few different things to try and thought we would share the inspiration we located. These decorative egg shells, filled with a small bouquet of spring flowers and hung with ribbon are a lovely idea to decorate a window.

Decorative eggs can be purchased in most stores or online. If you have a mantelpiece or kitchen shelving, an Easter Egg garland is an option. Further details on how to make these can be found here.

We always received Easter Eggs whilst growing up and exchanged small gifts. We love this alternative wrapping style with rabbit style years. This could be used for eggs of gifts.

Easter Sunday brings a traditional family dinner, with us gathered around the table. This brings the opportunity to place fresh spring flowers into egg shells or cups to add to the table. These make a suitable place name holder or just decoration.

An alternative table decoration would be a floral garland.

Easter also brings the school holidays and chocolate creme eggs. We came across the recipie for these creme egg milkshakes here. These would make for an alternative drink for children this Easter.
