A MILLENIAL'S GUIDE TO EASTER

There's an Easter beyond painted eggs.

Painted eggs hanging from twigs, chocolate bunnies and miniature fluffy chicks are the classic Easter decorations. While they may look cute at your Grandma’s, we millennials like to think we are a little ahem more stylish. And we’ll take any excuse to party, and Easter is certainly one of them. So for something a little less naff and a little more egg-citing, check out my more natural and alternative selections.

AS LONG AS YOU DON’T HAUL A FLOWER BED ONTO IT, YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY PLANTS ON YOUR DINING TABLE

TURN YOUR PARTY SPACE INTO A BOTANICAL FRENZY

One of the best things about Easter is that spring has well and truly arrived with greenery galore and cherry blossoms blooming left right and centre, which is such a contrast to those bare winter months. So why not reflect this in your decorations? The age-old Easter hack is an Easter tree and a vase of flowers, but you can do much better. Let your imagination run wild with a maximalist nature theme.

GO FOR TULIPS IN VASES, BLOSSOM TREE STEMS IN WATER GLASSES, FOLIAGE FROM THE GARDEN (BEG YOUR NEIGHBOUR IF YOU HAVE TO)…

As long as you don’t haul a flowerbed onto it, you can never have too many plants on your dining table. Choose an abundance of vines and long stemmed flowers cascading along your dining table. The more the merrier in fact. Go for tulips in vases, blossom tree stems in water glasses, foliage from the garden (beg from next door if you have to), ivy, glassware botanicals and the odd piece of fruit – why not a pineapple – you can eat it afterwards. Harmonise it with coloured glassware.

 OUR TOP PICKS THIS EASTER…

Hooray! A bunny that isn’t bright pink and glittery. This is the badass version of the Easter bunny and it looks great. Plus it’s a bottle stopper so perfect for the Easter brunch Prosecco.

 

You’ll find this one buried in Amara. 

I’m constantly impressed by Wayfair products as their range is just so huge. They literally have everything, so I’m not surprised that I found this little Easter goodie. I love this water mark effect hare print, and it’ll bring a little sophistication to your Easter efforts. Plus it’s only £12, which is an absolute bargain! Wayfair also recently featured as one of our affordable brand alerts, which you can read more on here. 

Amara are really killing this unconventional Easter trend. I’m a tad obsessed with this Amara duck foot egg cup – I love the way it looks surreal because it’s oversized and block coloured. and a little spooky too so could double up as a Halloween decoration. Surprise your brunch guests with a few of these guys congregated on the table!
