Happy Easter 2016!
We have been getting into the Easter spirit this bank holiday. On Good Friday we took our girls to Marsh Farm in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex for their amazing Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the chatacters from Alice in Wonderland. We often visit Marsh Farm for their special events as they really go to town and make such an effort and they did not disappoint on this occassion either. They had transformed a field into the prettiest looking egg hunt I’ve ever seen…bunting and spring decorations hung from every possible surface and hay bales. After a nose around all the animals and a ride on the back of a tractor in a trailor, we headed home where we of course ate fish and chips for dinner.
Having two small girls Easter is a big event in our house. This year I knew I wanted to do an afternoon tea for my girls and I wanted the table to be a feast for their eyes as well as their tummies. Think Mad Hatter at Easter. I remember having Easter teas as a child and how exciting it was to see those little yellow chicks and the different colour foiled wrapped eggs and I want my girls to burst with excitement when they walk in and see the table. They will be touching everything with excited hands and deciding what they’re going to eat first!
Floral jug and crockery is from PiP Studio and the teapot and cups are by Miss Etoile. It’s very busy with lots going on but through the eyes of a child hopefully they will think it’s amazing. I thought the grass table runner was a nice spring touch. I got this on ebay from a company called Citi Grass. It wasn’t expensive. I paid about £17.99 and it is available in different sizes. You can find their website here. Apart from the obvious edible goods, other extra details I added were the egg tree and egg wraps and the honeycomb spring animals and decorations which were all from here. The other accessories like the fluffy chicks and rabbits we have accumulated over the past few years and they come out every Easter. I think I originally got them all in a Home Bargains type of shop. The bunny baskets are John Lewis. Every year we add to the Easter decorations which is great as they’re slowly building up ready for use the following year.
I shall leave you with the rest of the pictures. Have a lovely day whatever you are doing.
