How to decorate your home in time for the long Easter weekend

Alex Fox, a stylist from John Lewis’s home department, points out that decorating for Easter can be more fun than decorating at Christmas, as there is less seasonal pressure attached to the event. “You can do as little or as much as you like, and I think that’s what is making it increasingly popular,” she says. “You can simply gather branches to arrange in a vase and add decorative eggs, or go all-out with bunny bunting and an Easter tree if you want to.”

Stylist Melanie Lissack, a fan of seasonal decorating who documents her impressive DIY floral arrangements via her Instagram account (@melanielissackinteriors), makes just as much effort with her spring decor as she does at Christmas. “I always decorate the house at this time of year as I find it really uplifting,” she says. “It feels like a celebration.” This year, she has created a spring “doorscape” – a floral garland that extends all the way around her front door – by building a wooden structure to attach to the railings either side, wrapping it with garlands and tucking in faux flowers.

But for those who lack the time or floristry skills to assemble such a display, the table is the obvious place to start with some easy seasonal updates.

Baker and food writer Claire Ptak (best known for making the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding cake), is fond of entertaining at home, where she prefers to take an understated approach to the table, to let the food shine.

“I think abundance really is lovely, but when you put too much out it can look a bit messy, so I try to be careful of that,” she says. “I keep things pretty simple in my food and in my home, but I like beautiful things and I like texture.”
