Easter is traditionally a time for a family get together. Whether you’re putting on an egg hunt for the little ones or hosting a slap-up lunch for relatives, why not put a few finishing touches to the table or garden?
You might choose to go all out with a Swedish style ‘Easter tree’, or just add a few little ornaments here and there. To help you decide, we’ve selected a range of decorations, from DIY decs that will keep the kids busy to pieces that will last you years.

We’re fans of The Contemporary Home’s Easter garland; it’s 89cm long, so will fit nicely across a window or in a fireplace and it’s something you can keep and bring out each year. If you’re planning an Easter egg hunt, Lakeland’s kit will make it that bit extra special for children, who we reckon will also be big fans of Claire Loves’ Yolk Folk.
