Easter Home Decor 2017


So technically I thought this post, like my Xmas Decor posts, was an annual tradition of mine. However, looking back for last years...it doesn't seem to exist?! :O How did I miss that? I'll never know but I'd already taken photos and planned this post so it's going ahead still, even if it is a little late.
I will preface this by acknowledging that yes, most people know, I am not religious, however, we celebrate Easter as a holiday of life. New life, rebirth, life in general. We appreciate our fellow creatures big and small as well as the plants, flowers and the incredible planet we are so lucky to be allowed to live on. It's been a tradition since I have lived alone to decorate my house in bright colours and all things Spring to greet the new season of life and the fact the Baker gets gifts is just a bonus ;)

I hope you enjoy seeing my 2017 budget decorations! See the end of the post for previous years.


 Fun facts of what you see above!
- The clock on top of my cabinet doesn't show the right time as we never wind it up. It has a beautiful loud chime that doesn't only scare Baker but also annoys Jake :P
 - The glass jar of chocolate eggs original held mini eggs but I ate the all before I was able to take photos and I had to buy something else to fill it again.
- That paper chain caused way more issues than any decor I've ever put up.
- The bunny and chick wind up toys are both Bakers (79p for Home Bargains) and he is obsesssedd...I think he thinks they are alive.
- The last photo features most of Baker's Easter toys!
- My Easter tree, despite being salvaged from dead twigs I found on the ground, represents rebirth. The colourful decorations symbolizing the beautiful buds that have been gracing all the sad looking winter trees in the past month or so. :)


I also usually show a 'What we got for Easter' haul, though as this year I received money as opposed to any pacey-new etc, I will just be showing Baker's treats! This is from my Mam and I. He also got a new ball but I forgot to add it to his basket or the photos :/

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all had a lovely Easter if you celebrate, however you celebrate. I'd love to see your photos and blog posts so always feel free to pop your links in the comments below.

  5. Love your Spring decor, I meant to do a post like this as I've done a Halloween one before but I just don't know where time has gone. Check Baker all pleased with his Easter goodies, he is a very lucky boy :). Oh the Easter bunting in the first pic is so cute.

  6. I'll be honest, I didn't even know easter decorations were a thing! These are so sweet and cheery though - I might have to thin about getting some for next year!

    1. I didn't until about 4 or so years ago. It's just another trend the UK have copied from the US I think! haha Cute though.
