Pastel colours: The decorating choice for this Christian holiday so why not try swapping your plain cushion covers for some pastel blue’s, pink and yellows.

Create some home-made decorations: A great way to put your crafting skills to the test, making your very own Easter wreath to hang outside your door. To make all you need is:
- Plastic coloured eggs
- Solid straw wreath (even use the old Christmas one you were thinking of throwing away!)
- Hot glue gun
- Hanging wire
- Other accessories you may wish to stick and add on e.g – small toy chicks and glitter
Step 1) Using the glue gun, stick the colourful plastic eggs to the wreath. If you want to decorate your eggs with glitter or other accessories do this before adding to the wreath.

Step 3) Hang it on the front door to welcome your friends and family.
Framed Easter photos: Getting your child to draw, paint and create some fun Easter images such as bunny’s, chicks, Easter eggs or if you are religious you could frames some meaningful images of Christianity and place them around the house.

Dinner sets – Go for something floral such as pink flowers and sit on a plane place-mat to ensure the plates stand out. For something a little extra why not tie some pink ribbon around your napkin and place a coloured wooden egg on top.
