Pen Y Llechwedd – Easter Style

Pen Y Llechwedd – Easter Style

This Easter is going to be a little different to years gone by. Most of our family will be away on football camps and camping with other family, but for the 3 of us still at home, we are going to stick with tradition and have a good old roast lamb for lunch. Because it will be too big for the 3 of us, we’ve invited some family to join us.

I love to entertain at our Pen Y Llechwedd, she really shines when we have guests. It’s like the house enjoys it as much as we do! It’s a beautiful time of year at the moment, and because of this, we are going to take advantage of the outside and have a picnic style lunch. The table decorations will be simple, allowing the green of the yard to be the focus on the day.


I love white and I love crystal, add in some texture and colour just for fun, and our Easter table is set and ready for our family to enjoy.




I am very excited this year to be able to eat with my feet on the grass, there is something very grounding about this feeling. Always a big fan of picnics, this is a real balance of my love for the outdoors, and sit down meals.

As you can see, my photography still needs some work, time to find an online photography course. Do you have any suggestions?

How will you be spending Easter? Do you decorate your home to suite the occasion?
