Rejoice; spring has sprung, which means chocolate eggs, brighter weather (we hope) and longer days are on the horizon. Plus, rosé season is just within reach. And though troubled times have called for staying indoors and social distancing, we believe the new season deserves to be celebrated. From hot cross bun baking to giving your home an interiors refresh, step into spring with our essential guide to celebrating at home.
Give your home an interiors refresh
Show your home so love by giving it a little spring refresh; brighten with multi-hued accessories, give walls a fresh lick of paint and fill rooms with plenty of spring florals, from magnolias to daffodils. See interior designer Louise Bradley’s tips on bringing the outside into your home and follow suit this spring.
Indulge in delicious hot cross buns
It wouldn’t be spring without indulging in copious amounts of moreish and butter-coated hot cross buns. Bake your own at home with Michelin star winning chef Tom Aikens’ recipe, or (if you’re feeling a little lazy) head to Gail’s (or click and collect) to pick up a selection of currant, sultana and cranberry-infused buns glazed with delicious spiced syrup. What’s more, the award-winning bakery is raising awareness surrounding food waste with the introduction of a brand-new maple glazed bacon hot cross bun made from the previous day’s leftover editions. gailsbread.co.uk
