Decorating for Easter: Yay or Nay?

Decorating for Easter: Yay or Nay?

Let me start this post with a big fat disclaimer. I will not be decorating my house head to toe for Easter. No sir. I have only just got over the Christmas trauma of being surrounded by things we do not have the room for and I am in no way ready to repeat the fiasco again.

However ….

Not everyone needs to be a big fat scrooge like me, do they? And a little nod to the season, with a strategically place twig here and a bunch of daffs there, can make you home feel bright and fresh for spring.

Here are a few quick and easy ways to help you get that easter feeling in your home from some of my favourite Instagrammers. But, if this all feels like too much effort for you, follow my lead and eat your body weight in chocolate instead. I can confirm that this will give you a happy easter glow too.

I will definitely not be going to huge efforts to decorate for Easter, I’m just not that organised,  but I do like to have a house full of fresh flowers at this time of year. It makes me very happy to have them dotted around the house with the windows letting sunshine and fresh air in. Though I do hate emptying vases, so for every day we enjoy fresh flowers, there is probably an equal number spent watching them die, hoping they magically make their own way to the bin.

We aren’t ones for many traditions at this time of year, aside from eating chocolate, of course. That said, I do quite like to give the kids easter craft sets to play with. Which does mean I am left with yet more things that need to find their way to the dust bin, only the latter requires skills of stealth. The kids are way less concerned about manky old tulips finding their way to the bin, than they are about cotton wool sheep or cardboard chicks.

However, I think Bettys may have come up with the perfect solution. They have created free printable Easter cards for your children to colour in and decorate, and the best bit is, you can give them all away. Perfect. Family and friends beware, you may just have some lovingly handmade cards on their way to you. In the meantime, I will just sit here and eat ALL the chocolate.

    I used not bother with Easter decorations at all.I was much more interested in a nice piece of roast lamb and some chocolate But over the past few years i have really gotten into the decorating. The Germans have rubbed off on me I think. They love Easter over here.
