This year we have family staying with us for the Easter holidays and in typical fashion I don’t feel organised. Argh. We love Easter in our house because it has something for everyone, the Easter bunny for the kids and all the chocolate in the world for the adults. Mr C and I are very partial to a chocolate egg. Often on Easter Sunday we can be be found with tummies stuffed; trousers unbuttoned as we recline on the sofa, revelling in our gluttony. However, this year we will have to keep our trousers firmly buttoned, unless I fancy giving the Mother in law an eyeful. It is nice to have family over to stay and especially during Easter as it gives us a real reason to decorate the house and get it ready for our visitors. The guest room will be cleaned and organised and daffodils will be put on the bedside table. I have also been thinking of some lovely Easter touches that I can introduce elsewhere. I have been on the hunt for some decorations for the table and the living room.
~ Purple bunny mug Paperchase £7. A cute and quirky mug that is bound to make any guest smile when you hand over their cup of tea in this cheery mug ~
~ Easter Crackers Sainsbury’s £5. The perfect addition to the Easter table. The children will love having crackers to pull over the Sunday roast. ~
~ Chicks from Paperchase £2.50. These colourful chicks know how to get the party started, but be careful that they don’t get carried away tweeting at the table. These would look lovely on the table and I am sure my two girls would declare them to be cute.
~ White rabbit succulent planter from Not On The High Street £17.50. This would make a lovely gift but it would also look rather nice in my living room and I have discovered that even I can manage to keep a succulent alive ~
~ Mason jar with sweets with bunny rabbit face from Sainsbury’s £7. My two girls would love this to drink their milk out of.
~ Bunny cushion from Sainsbury’s £8. This would look lovely on our settee and what a really lovely way of updating the house to fit in with Easter. This is such a cute cushion that I would have to make sure that the children didn’t kidnap it for cushion jenga!
~ Easter egg cups from Paperchase £6 for two. Oldest recently broke one of our egg cups so this fluffy pair would make a wonderful addition.
~ Napkins from Sainsbury’s £2. Bring a bit of fun to the table with these carrot napkins and perfect for cleaning faces covered with chocolate. Obviously I mean Mr C.
~ Easter egg wooden confetti from Paperchase £1.75. Be a good egg and decorate your table with these lovelies. ~
~Happy Easter decoration from Sainsbury’s at £4. Hang this by your front door to welcome all of your guests. ~
What do you think of my decorations, aren’t they “eggcellent”. Haha, if you can’t have a pun at Easter then when can you!
