When I was little I remember Easter being awash with chocolate, eggs stacked high, maybe the occasional hunt for the Easter bunny in the garden and then me trying to eke out my finds until my mum or dad found them and polished them off!

It was never really celebrated with the same gusto as other holidays so when I eventually left home it was more a case of a packet of mini eggs rather than a full Easter celebration. Fast forward to motherhood and it seems to have taken on a new role in our house. Suddenly the excitement of Easter bonnets and brightly coloured eggs hunts have taken hold and chocolate fever is in full force in the kiddo’s eyes.

As part of Notonthehighstreet.com’s Doing it Differently campaign I was given the task of getting creative this Easter and see how I would style a celebration table using thoughtful and unique products from some of the UK’s best creative small businesses.

So alongside the usual exchange of chocolate eggs and a book, I want to use the morning to celebrate with a little Easter themed breakfast. As we’re away over actual the event I thought it would be a fun idea to treat him to an early Easter surprise. There’s nothing better than coming together, sharing giggles and indulging in yummy food, even if it is chocolate for breakfast. Plus I love creating a beautiful table so I never need an excuse to entertain!

1. SELECT YOUR STYLE

Rose Tinted Glasses, Oh So Cherished from Notonthehighstreet.com
It's no secret that I have a soft spot for pale pinks and lovely light spaces, so it makes sense for me to pull my favourite colours together when wanting to create a harmonised look for my Easter table. Before buying/making anything decide what you want the overall style to be. I chose candy colours made up of pastel pink, green and greys, with a hint of retro to make it feel like a little tea party. I used some of Felix's wooden play kitchen food as decorations  aswell as cherry blossom from our street, and the washed glass juice bottle used with paper straws gives it a nostalgic twist. To add the finishing touch I used a candy paper bag to pop his present in, to bring the look together.

 2. DESIGN YOUR OWN ECO FRIENDLY EGGS

One of the most fun things about Easter is getting your craft on, but it's so easy to feel like you've run out of time and rely on popping into your local supermarket to pick up disposable decorations for your Easter celebrations. In reality all you need is a box or two of white duck eggs to get the desired effect, plus it's super cost effective and environmentally friendly too. All you need is either a sharpie pen to decorate them with various patterns, food colouring to create fun colours or even temporary tattoos to jazz them up. 

You can stack your eggs like I've done in a basket or use them to line a vase for a Easter floral arrangement with this simple method: Use two vases, one large and one small, place the smaller inside the large vase, this will hold your flowers. Place your decorated eggs inside the gap between the two vases until full, now admire your beautiful centre piece. Once you've finished using them they can be recycled! 

3. GET PERSONAL

Watching your kiddo grow up means you probably know them better than anyone right? So if you want to surprise them this Easter then why not give them a personal gift. It’s easy to spoil him with chocolate and sweets, but I love creating memories for Felix and giving him something he can treasure.

I’ve used this personalised engraved bird decoration as a name place setting to make breakfast that little bit more special. Also this fab carton of chocolate eggs are a great Easter gift that doubles up as a toy for his play kitchen.

4. GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR FEAST

I'm not sure about you but avocado and eggs are pretty much our go-to breakkie at the weekend, that and maybe the occasional French pastry. So to switch things up this Easter I thought it would be fun to try something a little unusual and create a breakfast illusion. Alongside the healthy-ish serving of stacked scotch pancakes and fruit, I've decorated the table with these solid chocolate hot cross buns and egg shapes chocolate slabs, both look great and will certainly be tasty!

For those who are shying away from their sweet tooth I love this gorgeous white egg planter, just tap off the top and sew seeds to bring a little green to your table. Both of these are fab finds so it’s bound to impress your friends and family.

5. Cherry Blossom

Now it's spring, there is an abundance of Cherry Blossom lining the streets like a pink procession of petals. Forage for wild blooms to decorate your table, you only need a branch or two of blossom to add a beautiful touch of colour. Oh and don’t fret if you can’t find any, instead display sticks in a vase and use it to hang eggs off like an Easter tree!

After all the cooing and ahhing at the table and filling our bellies with sweet treats, I’m looking forward to making a fun treasure hunt with clues on how to find the winning prize * a good book! Later Felix can cosy down in a cosy spot, like this stylish rug and relax with his favourite read.

You can use all of these tips or just one or two if you don’t fancy going full on Easter for a six year old! Do you normally hold an Easter tea party/breakfast? What would be your must have item?
