The lambs playing in the fields, the birds chirping from the hedgerows, and chocolate eggs peeping from their garden hiding place can mean only one thing: Easter is upon us. This year, we're making delicate egg decorations, bunny ear tiaras and filling our home with fragrant spring flowers. However you mark the occasion, we've plenty of ideas for weaving seasonal flowers into your celebrations, to make this springtime festival extra joyful.
SEASONAL SPRING FLOWERS
To decorate your house, try one of our DIY craft projects: delicate eggshell vases, eggs decorated with petals, or pull the stops out with individual floral Fabergé Easter eggs. Make these fabulous decorations together with your children, perfectly styled with a floral bunny ears hairband.
CELEBRATE EASTER AT THE TABLE
When it comes to Easter, a leisurely breakfast around a cheerful spring table is a perfect way to start the day. Dig out your soft linen tablecloths and pretty porcelain plates, and pair them with golden cutlery and wooden serving dishes.
Easter is the moment to eat eggs, whether chocolate, poached or whisked up into an omelette. At breakfast, freshly baked croissants and a glass of fruit juice help create the feeling of a special day, while at lunch there's nothing that says Easter quite as much as a joint of roast lamb or delicious spring vegetable tart. Decorate the table with a creative spring table centrepiece, adorned with fragrant flowers. It's an eye-catching, natural statement that brings the hope and joy of springtime indoors.
