I’ve had my trusty “Easter tree” for years now. When I first put this up everyone thought I was mad…But now, Easter decorations are absolutely everywhere and slowly people are starting to think I’m less mad… :)
With Easter just around the corner I’ve started to think about how I’m going to get the house ready, and what bits I need to add to my collection. Today I’m sharing what I think, are the essential Easter decorations…oh yes there is such a thing as an essential Easter decoration!
The Easter Tree
I may have made my Easter tree sound a bit fancier than it is! It’s basically a collection of branches accessorised with hanging pretty pastel eggs and a few clip on birds. If branches aren’t for you, why not decorate this lovely white tree from John Lewis or simply arrange a collection of artificial blossom sprays like these from Notonthehighstreet.com
As for decorations, stay with Not on the High Street – they have so many lovely bits and pieces. Here are just a few of my faves…
A Spring Wreath
I got mine from John Lewis a few years back but it’s very ‘Eastery’ – it’s all eggs and feathers so this year I’d like to get one that’s more Spring-like so I can keep it up for longer.
Here are a few of the best wreaths I found, I just love the Peony Magenta wreath from John Lewis but just not sure I can justify the price tag, even if I do get to keep it up a little longer!
The easiest way to get your house ready for Spring is to fill it with flowers. My favourites for this season have to be daffodils, hyacinths and tulips. I love the idea of making a centre piece for my table like this lovely one I found on Pinterest.
Garlands and Bunting
I don’t need an excuse to put a garland up in my house, but if you do – then Easter is just the excuse you’ve been looking for! All of these lovely bits are from Notonthehighstreet.com. (This post isn’t sponsored by them I promise – they just happen to do a really good job of Easter decs!)
Ooh writing this has got me excited to get mine up now – off to the loft I go! I will be sharing a few pics as soon as mine are up on the blog and of course on Instagram – and as always I would love you to share yours with me!
