I know, I know, I’m going on holiday during Easter time — are you fed up of me going on about it yet?!
But seriously. Only 3 weeks to go!
Before we jet off to sunnier climes, it’s Easter time — and that means plenty of chocolate, the Easter bunny visiting us, time off school & work, roast dinners, fizz and catching up with family. For me, it also signifies the onset of spring, which makes me feel really happy and is a refreshing change from being in the depths of winter.
I’ve actually been talking everything Easter recently with Sainsbury’s Home, as they asked me to share with them what our family would be getting up to during this time of year. I was absolutely delighted to work with them on this (I love shopping there for food and home-ware) and have been SO excited to feature over on their blog and social media!
Over on their blog I am talking about hosting two kinds of events — one for the adults, which is a more formal setting with roast lamb and champagne, and then a party for our twins and their little friends, full of chocolate and plenty of yummy treats!
For the adults meal, we love to cook a full-on roast dinner and usually tend to invite both of our parents over at Easter time. This is always lovely for them to come and see the grandchildren and for us to host a meal for all of them. We love serving lamb plus seasonal vegetables and delicious desserts.
For the twins we love to throw a little themed party with their close friends. This year we plan to start with an egg hunt in the garden, collecting as many treats as they can find from the Easter bunny, and then sit down for food such as pizza, humous and vegetables, and fruit. Playing games and dressing up is also loads of fun of when you are little too.
The Sainsbury’s homeware range literally has everything we want as a family — from cutlery through to roasting trays, chocolate eggs and all the food we need. As well as the cute Easter decorations I also love to have their fresh flowers on my table too. The Sainsbury’s homeware collection also has everything to suit all styles; I like a modern look to suit my home and so the white dinner set is my favourite mixed in with the Helsinki range.

Happy Easter guys.
