Bring The Blooms Inside

Colours of bright yellow and vivid purple emerging from the ground is nature’s way of telling us that spring is on the way. With this year’s frosty weather, these floral indicators don’t seem to have risen yet. If your garden isn’t awash with daffodils and tulips yet, take nature into your own hands and welcome spring into your home with beautifully assorted seasonal flowers. Dot vases around your home and fill with spring florals for an instant mood-lifter for your party, this weekend. The fresh scent and the bright tones are bound to conjure up Easter sentiments for your guests. For long-lasting blooms, opt for Infini London’s diamond cube of yellow roses, preserved to last a year. Alternatively, if you’re looking for fresh bouquets, Bloom & Wild have some beautiful options that can be delivered straight to your door.

Stick To Home Comforts

Although the cold and blustery Easter weather isn’t ideal, make the most of staying indoors and treat your guests to seasonal home comforts that will warm their cockles. Hot cross buns are a traditional and iconic sweet for Easter, filled with memories and the sugary goodness we all crave when it’s cold outside. Bake your cakes the same morning as your party for a sweet, inviting aroma that your guests are bound to delight in. Also, there’s nothing more comforting than a freshly-baked bun that’s still warm in the middle. Try this hot cross apple scone recipe for a twist on this Easter delicacy.

Make Easter Gifts Non-Chocolatey

Chocolate is far too predictable for Easter, nowadays. Treat your loved ones to a leather accessory that they will use for years, instead. Our pick of bright leather accessories will lighten up a gloomy Easter Sunday and bring joy to the faces of your family and friends. If it’s raining outside and you have to call off the annual Easter egg hunt, your leather gifts will more than compensate for the lack of hunting around the garden. From leather luggage tags for the avid traveller to love heart key rings in pink and petrol, there’s an Easter gift to suit everyone in your close circle of loved ones.

Add A Touch Of Italiano

Pretend you’re basking in the Italian sunshine this Easter and take inspiration from Italy’s springtime traditions. If you have a large crowd coming over this Sunday, it always feels rewarding to offer something unique that everyone can experience together. If the rain must fall outside, transport your guests to Italy inside with an Easter colomba cake. Made with butter yeast and eggs with a similar texture to panettone, this traditional Italian cake is shaped into the outline of a dove to symbolise peace. Sous Chef offer some delectable options, as do Carluccio’s.
