What came first?
Saffron and Richard James were simply the most handsome couple. Everyone said so. Saffy with her dark golden locks, Richie with his lovely chocolate brown eyes. They moved out of London once the baby arrived of course and got chickens. The chickens lived in the grandest coop at the end of James’ huge garden.
Kids are impossible! What do you do with them over the long Easter break? They love exclaiming: “We’re bored!” yet somehow manage to keep you busy the entire day, thanks to their incurable state of boredom. Get the kids’ creative juices flowing with some fun Easter themed arts and crafts. Pretty pastel ribbon, a rainbow of crayons and sticky fingers will feature heavily – giggles are guaranteed!
Fried, stewed, baked or poached - chicken is the meat of the people. Unlike pork and lamb, it isn’t an acquired taste. Chicken is simple, easily transformed with a handful of fresh thyme, a bulb of garlic and lashings of rich butter. Bring a roast chicken to the Sunday dinner table and the family will simply follow the aroma. No call to dinner required. Juicy. Tasty. Democratic. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
Gather together with your friends and family this Easter to celebrate new life and spring time. You could decorate your Easter lunch table with pastel greens and yellows to echo the buds and daffodils outside, while bee and floral motifs remind us that nature is waking up and summer is on it's way. Make your own eggs or have an egg hunt in the garden; either way you can send everyone home stuffed full with chocolate and memories of good times.
Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail are so square. Doing everything just so. Mother wants us to behave and play carefully, but I cannot. I am the adventurer amongst us. I will take my blue jacket and go whenever I please - from Mr McGregor’s garden, to a rabbit hole across the fields. There’s nothing I love more than nibbling on tasty vegetables or escaping from a terrifying cat. My sisters may be happy playing just down the lane, but I need more. I need a voyage, at least for this afternoon.
There is so much beauty in nature, especially during the springtime. Butterflies begin to make an appearance. Rabbit warrens brimming full of bunnies suddenly appear. Bring nature into your home, not only through freshly cut flowers, but also by introducing touches of the wild. Long-eared ceramic rabbits will transform your bedroom into a secret cove or an untouched piece of woodland. Continue discovering ways to “bunnify“ your home with this stunning collection.
Ask someone under the age of ten what their favourite food is and they’ll say: chocolate. Kids love the sweet stuff – the smooth cocoa deliciousness cannot be competed with. Bake with children and chocolate cake mix will be mysteriously halved; sugar-laden toppings will suddenly disappear. Make their springtime even sweeter and dress them up in the cutest Easter themed clothing – chocolate and bunnies galore!
Blossom trees are in full bloom. Notice the petals fluttering in the springtime breeze. Breathe in the aroma of freshly cut grass, as daffodils poke through front lawns. New life means Easter. Fluffy bunny rabbits and little lambs can be spotted running across country fields. It’s the perfect time of year to indulge in sweet chocolate treats. Celebrate the season with this adorable, festive and delicious collection.
What’s your favourite holiday? Easter, so you can eat everything chocolate - anything chocolate. Chocolate spread on toast for dinner – obviously. Your friends worry about you during this time of year. Three mini-chocolate bunnies by lunchtime just isn’t right. At least that’s what they tell you. You like the good stuff though, 70% cocoa dark chocolate is your favourite. You break off a square whenever you fancy - you read somewhere it’s high in vitamin and minerals.
I set myself the challenge of creating an Easter Egg Collection without actually buying anything. Unfortunately I could not handle it and eventually broke down and got one of the Heston Eggs. I just had to try the edible nest, and those little eggs look delicious too. Also I really like the look of the Hot Cross bun egg, and the baileys egg, and nom nom nom nom nom....
Colourful and long summer days mean: perfectly trimmed lawns, flowers in bloom and sports day. Your little angels will be unrecognisable, as they get ultra-competitive during the three-legged race. Hula hooping will be transformed into an Olympic sport. After so many sporting achievements the only way to round off such a fun-filled day, is a visit to the Ice-cream van.
