Easter is a lovely time to celebrate a mid-April break; the long weekend offers up a great opportunity to take in a variety of new experiences. As well as the traditional pleasures of eating and drinking why not indulge your creative, artistic side as well with new music, paintings and film? Indeed, anything that has the ability to transport the senses is well worth investigating around this time.
The Flight of the Orient cushion (above) from Ted Baker certainly falls into this category. The marvellous detailing of a transfixing pink bird perched delicately on a cherry blossom tree branch evokes intense feelings of discovery and wonder. Carefully woven in 100% cotton sateen, the cushion is superbly finished with a smart piping that frames the beautiful image. Certainly a cushion to relax with and wonder at.
A more traditional Easter time experience could well be enhanced by the Ashbury Bright Fish Eater Set. Dedicated to lovers of a pescatarian menu – often a food option around this particular holiday time – the cutlery set by experienced designers Robert Welch comprises 4 fish knives and 4 fish forks beautifully curved to allow you to enjoy a fish feast in fine style.
This egg cup set by Wesco is just the thing to serve up breakfast eggs whatever time of year, but with Easter being the time of eggs, albeit those of a chocolate variety, perhaps this could present a lovely seasonal gift? The stylish acrylic set is available in a number of lively colours and can help to produce a lovely morning helping of breakfast treats.
Try your hand at artisan food making and show off your creations to their very best with the Ivalo Dome and Base from LSA. Available in three different sizes, the superbly crafted item has been beautifully imagined to present your creations of cheese boards, cakes, sweets and savoury treats in perfect style. The dome is sure to catch the eye of friends and associates alike, with the fantastically mouth blown glass of the dome combining with distinctly evocative leather handle and natural ash base to tremendous effect. One for an Easter party of superb culinary experience!
