Easter table decorating with homesense and TK maxx

I wanted to create a contemporary twist to a traditional setting, making my table display fun and colourful and in keeping with my home style. So of course I headed to homesense! The place full of everything you didn't know you needed! So here is what I created.

The colour green is a huge trend within interiors and I am in love with palm prints so when I spotted these palm leaf plates I just had to snap them up! They will also be great for summer BBQs. Homesense has a huge collection of bowls, plates and vases and I wanted my table to look very eclectic bringing in lots of colour and print so I opted for these two ceramic bowls to hold Easter eggs and treats!

I wanted to create a centre piece for my table to I picked up a glass dome which I filled with colourful chocolate eggs and a couple of daffodils - I love how this looks and I think this idea could work for lots of occasions by switching up the display within the dome.

Flowers were also a huge part of my display opting for brightly coloured tulips with long stems so I could hang a couple of egg decorations to add some height to the table.

I was super pleased with how my table turned out, I just need to organise a little Easter party!

Happy Easter!

Current favourites

I thought I would share my current favourite things which you have probably seen lots over on instagram and insta stories! 

1-  My Bug bag! I have used this little bag constantly since I bought it about a month ago, it was super cheap at £7 from primark. I just find it goes with every outfit and with mini box bags being super on trend it ticks every box. 

2- Bee necklace - This is more of an all time fav! I get so many compliments when wearing this little bee :)

3- Slogan tees - My style is super simple but I have been loving wearing tees with slogans. I actually designed this one so I guess Im a little biased! But I have included the super on trend colour of the moment red with the sassy slogan.

4- Ankle strap shoes - I was on the hunt for some kind of dressy but not too dressy shoes I could wear for going out for food or drinks, that would look nice with skinny jeans or dressed up a little more with dresses. I found these on ASOS and they just add something a little extra to an outfit and the ankle strap seems to elongate my leg which is a bonus!

5- The book the secret - I haven't been able to put this book down since I bought it about a week ago! I was kind of sceptical at first as I have heard a lot about it.Its basically about the power of the universe and how with positivity you are able to do anything and have anything you want.

6- NYX full coverage concealer - I was asking a friend of mine recommendations for good concealers and she said to try the NYX one and honestly it is incredible! So good at covering dark circles

7- Bareminerals blemish cleanser - I have started switching up my skincare and as I use bare minerals powder foundation I thought I would try their skincare. I found the cleanser left my skin feeling really clean and fresh and I have definitely noticed a difference using this alongside my other new ordinary products!

8- Ordinary blemish serum and Ordinary moisturiser - This skincare seems to be all over instagram and I did give into the hype, but I am so so happy I did! The serum in particular seems to have transformed my skin and I cannot believe how affordable it is! Defiantly stocking up.

9- Flowers - I currently have six vases full of flowers dotted around my house, honestly they make me so happy and brighten up the place.

10- Bourbon biscuits - No explanation needed 

I hope you liked seeing my current favourites and if you have any new products or favs you think I might like do comment below :)
