One trend we’re currently embracing is the love of all things pastel. A perfect freshness is given to products and fashion with this gorgeous selection of colours and a dreamy combination in time for Spring. So we thought we’d share some of your pretty picks to inspire you in time for Easter.

If you’re planning an Easter paper-themed wedding or wedding anniversary, how about these delicate honeycomb paper decorations, great on mass with a range of colours combinations all together:

Or how about getting creative yourself and making yourself a cute Miffy inspired Easter Garland? A lovely decoration, perfect for afternoon tea with the girls, a kids birthday party/picnic or an easter gathering with the family. Download your DIY template here.

For those with a sweet tooth, hows about these handmade beauties. Personalised too and Vegan in nature. Easter just isn’t Easter without a  chocolate Easter egg hunt:

If you do Easter gifts amongst family and friends and the pennies in your piggy bank aren’t stretching far enough, why not make them a gift this year? We found these beautiful miniature egg shell gardens, which could be easily personalised with egg painting or a particular type of plant potting for your loved one:

Perhaps the most simple thing to do would be to bring in some freshly cut flowers into your home this Easter time. We’d recommend the hustle and bustle of Columbia Road Flower market on a Sunday morning. It’s a must to take your camera and some cash to grab yourself a beautiful bargain.

… And with all this inspiration fresh in our heads, we’re bursting at the seams to get a new collection ready for our lovely followers to get their mitts on in time for the summer, something fresh, lightweight, pastel in colour and perfectly paper-ee, in keeping with our current collections. We’re excited to reveal it but you’ll have to just sit time for the time being … to be the first to receive news of its launch, sign up to our newsletter here.
