As I sit at home writing this post I realise just how lucky I am to be at home and have my wonderful family around me, safe and sound. We had planned to have an Easter party, but obviously given the current lock down that wasn’t possible. Instead we opted for a sophisticated Easter afternoon tea. Well sophisticated for a 10year old, 6 year old and 7 year old twins. The main things is that we have each other and we are together. Its amazing what little hands can make with a little encouragement and direction. I think their cakes looked fabulous with the pastel sprinkles and smarties, dead on trend for this time of year. I can also tell you they tasted AMAZING, I am a lucky mummy!
The Easter of 2020 is unlike any other! Weddings across the globe have been postponed over the past number of months with many being rescheduled for the same time next year. I know its easy for me to say that it will be ok don’t stress, it will all come together, but right now you are probably feeling like life has been very unfair. You are right we can’t understand how exactly how you are feeling, but we are in this together, and we can provide some inspiration and advice for your Easter wedding whenever it maybe.
We have lots of wonderful, themed wedding ideas
up our sleeve. Whether you’re looking to organise an Easter egg hunt for the
kids or find inspiration in cute Peter Rabbit décor or an Alice in Wonderland
spring tea party, we’ve got it all covered.
An Easter wedding allows one to embrace a cute and playful look whilst opting for feminine style gowns and pretty pastels. Accessories are a great way to add a splash of colour to your day, while keeping the traditional bridal style.
Spring weddings happen at the time of year where new live is in abundance and there is a vast array of florals available, the hard part will be choosing which flowers will make the cut and find their way into your amazing bouquet. Daffodils and tulips are great choices for Easter, as are pastel shades or sunshine yellow. Is there are prettier time of the year to say ‘I do?!’
Your wedding cake offers the opportunity to play with colour too and
create something that’s part of the décor. From bright-bloom embellished
designs to pastel painted cakes, the world is your oyster. If it’s a naked cake
you’re after, why not play around with Easter colours and create a rustic and
delicious pastel base cake?
When it comes to decor think of the season and make it fun. The addition of moss to your tables, with a few bright and light colours, adds a real feel of spring. Likewise, flower-filled birdcages are another great idea for the garden party-inspired Easter Wedding.
If you’re looking for a way to add a vintage touch to your day why not
theme your day with Peter Rabbit? Peter Rabbit being a firm childhood favourite
and modern classic with Peter Rabbit 2 now featuring at cinemas (when we are
allowed out again!) From woodland-inspired designs and earthy colour palettes
to fun photo booth details, it’s a fabulous way to personalise your day.
Of course, an Easter celebration would not be complete without Easter eggs, so work them into your wedding design where you can. Think about little nests filled with mini eggs to add a cute feature to your Easter tables. Edible pastel accents have never been so yummy!
As Easter is a celebratory occasion, you can go all out with your food and drink. Start off with pretty cocktails to match your colour scheme. As lemons and pinks are popular colours for spring, why not serve up elderflower and thyme tipples, or chic pink gin cocktails?
For dinner, tuck into a delicious lamb feast, with seasonal favourites such as
spring greens? For something unusual and beautiful we also recommend an
Easter-themed afternoon tea using our fine boned china, sure to add a touch of
feminine elegance to any occasion.
In addition we are sure that Easter cookies will be a hit with both big children
and small children alike.

Your day will come, for now celebrate the love you have for each other and appreciate the small things. Yes, we cant go far due to social distancing but we have what we need with us, each other. We will never take things for granted again.Stay safe.
Love the team at Ultimate Touches.
