Easter is upon us, can you believe how time flies?
I’m welcoming spring and all she brings with open arms and what better way to celebrate her arrival than with a little Easter post.
Boo by Belle and Boo
This little guy comes from a series of illustrations by artist Mandy Sutcliffe and has been charming the hearts and walls of children for some time now. Boo just adores this time of year. Now, I’m not suggesting he’s the Easter Bunny, but this is his busiest time…
Easter Door Décor
Talking of welcoming spring, why not greet your guests with a little festive door décor.
The umbrella decoration is a rustic nod to April’s fondness for rain. Stuff it with seasonal blooms and some hand-painted egg shells for a delightful Easter adornment.
This is a really easy DIY project that can be made with items you have round the house (and garden).
Full details for making these and more are available at www.bhg.com
Easter Eggs with a Difference
Why not try something a little different this Easter? The following recipe is a fun and unique twist on the traditional Easter egg. Make it with the kids or surprise them with a colourful breakfast on Easter morning.
- 1 box of jelly
- 4-6 Eggs, raw
Take 4-6 medium raw eggs. Carefully make a ¼ inch hole in one end of each egg using a sharp needle. Empty contents of egg and rinse shell well, let stand in egg box to dry for 24 hours. Once dry, prepare jelly according to instructions on box, leave to cool for 10-15 mins. Carefully pour the liquid jelly into eggs and leave to stand, hole-side-up in the refrigerator to set. Crack, peel and enjoy! More in detail with lots of pictures here.
