Make the most of the long weekend with delicious food, spring-themed decorating, table-setting inspiration and outfits for the whole family
From a fish supper on Good Friday to the roast on Easter Sunday and hot cross buns for breakfast every day of the long weekend, Easter is full of opportunities to gather with friends and family – and all it takes is a few simple touches to make the table look special. Make guests smile with our pretty daisy tableware, which is perfect for spring and comes in a salad bowl, side plate, and platter. Continue the spring theme with these ceramic dinner candle holders in sunshine yellow. For special occasions, we love this stylish gold-effect cutlery set. Decorate the table with bud vases filled with bright flowers and bowls of chocolate eggs.
Want to impress guests, spend less time in the kitchen and more quality time with your family? We have it covered with our spectacular range of special occasion cakes, sure to be a showstopping addition to your Easter table. Kids and adults alike will be spellbound by this rainbow layer cake, which is slathered in vanilla buttercream and coated with sprinkles. If you’re hosting a party or catering for a large group, don’t forget to check out our wine and spirits offer. You’ll discover rich reds, fruity white wines and uplifting fizz, as well as premixed cocktails and spirits. And of course, you’ll find the delicious Easter Dine In in our stores from 5 April. We’ll be picking up the slow cooked lamb shoulder and smashed roast potatoes with salsa verde drizzle. Delicious!
Decorations aren’t just for Christmas! Decorating your home for Easter will make the weekend feel even more special and celebratory, and it doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive. Arrange twigs or blossom in a vase and hang with Easter decorations, like these pastel decorative eggs and glass eggs with delicate floral patterns. Add a playful touch that the kids will love by adding our hanging Percy Pig and Easter egg decoration. Adorn your door with an Easter wreath and add a bunny shaped centre piece to your Easter table to get everyone fully in the seasonal swing.
Perfect for mini chefs, our Easter baking gift set is a choc-a-block with incr-egg-ible treats and fuss-free mixes so they can get creative in the kitchen during the school holidays. Try using the chocolate cake mix to make Easter cupcakes topped with cornflake cluster nests and colourful speckled eggs. Or add chocolate chunks to the brownie mix for extra indulgence, bake and then decorate with jazzy sprinkles and bubbly bunnies. Help budding bakers get creative with the right tools for the job, such as a batter bowl, whisk and baker’s spoon (perfect for bowl licking).
