Easter in the Home and Chocolate love

The easter biscuits we made last year

Spring and Easter is such a lovely time of the year, it's a time when we start to bring back colour into our lives, garden and home. It's also a perfect time for crafting with the family and planning the perfect easter egg hunt and the fact that it's such a magical time for the little man makes it that much more special. Last year we made some yummy easter biscuits and painted eggs and this year we have a few things planned and I thought I would share my inspirations with you

How beautiful are the painted mason jars with paper flowers - a lovely quick way to bring some pastel shades into the home and the mini hanging egg vases are quirky and cute. Of course when it comes to Easter one needs to think about what chocolate to buy - we truly believe in less is more and have opted to purchase one big egg for the little man alongside a few egg sized eggs, we also paint blown and boiled eggs in lovely patterns to add to the hunt. There are so many options on the market at the moment and I have a few favourites including M&S, Hotel Chocolate and the trusted Thornton's which produces a variety of family friendly eggs from the decadent and luxury eggs to toddler sized treats, made with quality ingredients and hand made finishes.

Milk Chocolate Rocket now only £3

The one of the things I love about Thornton's is the price as everything is so reasonable but you don't sacrifice on quality, because like I said less is more and I am really not one for bad, bitter and cheap tasting chocolate which is not what Thornton's does. Here are a few of my faves

Fudge Brownie Easter egg £9.99 and Hot Cross Bun egg half price at £6

I am really looking forward to the big day, having a lovely family breakfast before the Easter Hare arrives in the garden and the little man will run outside with his felted basket all excited, fingers crossed we have a beautiful sunny Easter sunday.

We were sent a Thorntons egg to try and do an honest review, opinions 100% our own


  1. I love Thorntons, I used to live in a really small welsh seaside town and the nearest once was in England (Shrewsbury) so we would travel there on the train to go shopping and always treat ourselves to some truffles too! x

  2. love the colourful decorations - the mason jars in particular

  3. Those painted jars are gorgeous and i love the middle of the table Easter display...I must get going with some Easter crafts this year!

  4. we're looking forward to our annual easter egg hunt! Love Thorntons chocolate too!

  5. ooh, fudge brownie easter egg, YUM!

  6. These eggs look yum, I really need to up my game about easter it's fast approaching and i have no idea what to get F! x

  7. These photos are all lovely, such good Easter ideas. My mum used to make an Easter tree (a branch with pastel-y decorations) - I always mean to do something similar. Love Thorntons!

  8. My friend is the kiddos Godmother, and she always buys them Thorntons eggs at Easter - it's such nice chocolate! Love those painted jars as well, they'd be perfect with some daffodils and stocks in!

  9. Easter is the one which is likely by everyone. Especially kids they love this Easter very much because they will get some different and useful things.
