Easter eggstravaganza

When did Easter decs become a thing? Or are we simply disguising the Christmas leftovers? Meh, who cares, when they look this cute, we're happy to throw everything at it.

Easter has always meant three things in the Muddy household, inhaling mini eggs from the beginning of March (a really obscure local by law that totally exists), the annual chocolate egg hunt in which you spend more time hiding the blighters than the kids do finding them and a lamb roast that only I love but I force everyone else to endure because, again, it’s the law and I’m cooking.

Never ever have I decorated the house, but having discovered all the cuteness at The Corner Shop in Woolhampton and I’m into. So I’m now trawling the local woods for arty twigs to bung in a vase, so the kids can get creative (and you barricade the door and have five minutes peace). Ready to be inspired?


How do you like your eggs in the morning? Decorated with bunnies and hung on a branch? You're in luck, these gorgeous hand-painted, eggs are lovely heirloom pieces that I reckon you could convince people you made yourself.
£1.95 each


Ticks all the boxes – Easter decor effort and it'll keep the kids occupied for at least an hour. Nothing says chic celebration like an egg with bunny ears, whiskers and a chic French wardrobe. We're loving this Meri Meri Easter Egg decorating Kit – a sanity saver, for sure.


Cuteness overload. Put the plastic bucket down, an egg hunt deserves only the best accessories. Hop to it add this fabulous piece of arm candy for your little ones to load up with eggs – with a little help from Thumper here.


It's not all about the rabbits, give the chicks a look in too. These birds are beautifully made using felt and vintage fabrics. Kirsty Allsopp would approve – and I reckon they'd look lush on the dining table. Note: no birds were harmed in the making of this dec. Phew.


Leave the chocolate eggs to the kids, we're obsessed with these deliciously packaged Chocolate With Love bars – and they're guilt free as they're ethically sourced, organic ingredients and the brand plants trees too, so it's good for the plant. It would be rude not to.
