Whether you're planning to keep the kids entertained with an Easter egg hunt or you're having friends round for a roast dinner, you'll want to make sure you're prepared.

 

Spring is the perfect time of year for creating fresh table displays with newly picked flowers, candles and decorative tableware. Pastel shades are everywhere at the moment – blush pink and delicate blue and violet hues are catching our eye.

If you're thinking of easing yourself in to the long weekend, then having breakfast in bed could be the ideal start. We love the adorable chicken wire toast rack from Sophie Allport which holds six slices of toast – plenty for sharing. The Breakfast Express Train by Reiko Kaneko is also a great idea for children (and adults too) for early morning dippy eggs and soldiers.

Not just for Easter, beautiful floral table linens and ceramic plant pots will be sure to brighten up your kitchen and dining space. If you want a break from baking and cooking in the kitchen, try your hand at creating your own indoor herb garden using the ceramic egg plant pots from Rowen & Wren. You can fill them with spring bulbs for a window display or table setting.
