With Easter just around the corner, I thought I would share with you some of my tablescape ideas! This year my sister and little nephew are visiting Spain and will be staying with us for a long weekend. I’m super excited!
I always make an event of any occasion and having a little one around makes things even more magical. Easter is a favorite of mine. It makes me think of fresh new beginnings, and long spring time weekends.
I have prepared some flower box arrangements, which were super easy to do, using floral foam and wooden boxes which I bought from H&M Home. I decided upon a yellow and white theme for the flowers so used Ranunculas, Roses, Carnations and Freesia with Olive leaves for foliage.
How cute are these chick face masks?!
The other Easter accessories were picked last year at places like John Lewis who always have a fabulous selection of Easter products and pound land stores also have some really cute creative items . The crochet mats and glass side plates are from Zara home
Since we moved to Spain a little under a year ago, I have wanted to visit the seaside Spanish town of Tarifa. As it is just over an hours drive from our home, we ran out of excuses not to visit, especially on a glorious spring day!
As we made our way through the picturesque cobbled streets we could smell the divine sent of Orange blossom in the air.
I have really grown to love and appreciate the Andalusian style of architecture whilst living here. The gleaming tiles and the ornate window boxes are so unique to this area.
And then there are the white washed buildings which line the streets against the backdrop of the bluest sky.
Not only do you have the cutest cobbles streets and some of the best coffee bars and tapas that Spain has to offer, you also have miles of beach to explore.
The clear blue waters are a sight to behold. We took a slow walk along the beach, basking in the sun, knowing full well if we were back home in England we would be wrapped up to keep out the cold.
Tarifa has a lovely Bohemian chilled vibe, great for relaxing and taking in the Andalusian culture.
I can see us becoming regulars to Tarifa, it would be rude not to!
I have found a new favourite place! In the heart of the Spanish Costa del Sol between Marbella and Sotogrande, overlooking the warm Mediterranean sea is Finca Cortesin. It is utterly impeccable and oh so stylish, not to mention it has a golf course, spa, beach club and 4 restaurants to choose from. Finca Cortesin showcases Andalusian style and hospitality at its very best.
When my Friend Anna (who knows her way around Spain much better than I) invited me for a day of shopping and followed by lunch, I literally jumped at the chance. Finca had been on my list for sometime after hearing of its fabulosity though friends). I really do love when I find somewhere that really embraces its surrounding area and culture to its core. Boy, does Finca tick that box!
We ate at El Jardin De Lutz, an elegant yet relaxed restaurant serving traditional Spanish cuisine. The interior of the restaurant showcases tall ceilings, clay tiled floors and antiques and Portuguese painted tiles.
The food was just as delicious as the restaurant décor . Executive chef, Lutz Bösing certainly lives up to his reputation.
After lunch we explored the beautiful grounds, which despite just returning to season, still looked beautiful.
Before we left, we enjoyed coffee in the blue bar, and I fell head over heels in love with its amazing hand-painted wallpaper. I am currently on the search for this exact paper for our home!
If you are travelling to Andalusia, I highly recommend Finca Cortesin! You will not be disappointed.
