Simple Easter Decorating Ideas from John Lewis

Decorating the house for Easter is a relatively inexpensive way to celebrate a special time of year. Traditionally it's when the entire family gets together, and as events are so focused around children, it's a good time to let the imagination go wild with bunnies, birds and rabbits. 

Yellow and white are always key colours and can be made more playful with a few carefully selected accessories and pieces of tableware.
