Let’s Decorate for Easter

Easter decor

Easter is one of the most joyful holidays, right next to Christmas, to celebrate with your family. The kids love to get their hands dirty, and help mum decorate the eggs, and not only them but the entire house. The best part is that it is sunny and warm outside, so you can always indulge in outdoor games, and organize the traditional Easter Egg Hunt. If you are looking for some inspiration, don’t hesitate to try some of my suggestions bellow… Without keeping you waiting any more, I have just one thing to say:

Let’s decorate for Easter!

 

Start with the Front Door

If you are keen on giving your home a thorough holiday makeover, you will need a good starting point. Since you will have all sorts of Easter decorations in- and outdoors, beginning with the front door seems like a reasonable place to start. Read more..

What can you do to jazz up your front door? Well, many things, but what I really love is the idea of an Easter wreath. Just like with Christmas, it is always a sign of holiday spirit, and the sky is the limit when it comes to the materials you could use, the shape you could choose, and even the size. Moreover, the children will have a kick helping you assemble the unit.

Need some fabulous ideas for DIY Easter wreath? Here are my favourite picks:

Easter Centrepieces for the Table

OK, I will have to admit it is IMPOSSIBLE to cover all the possible Easter decorations one can come up with – for that, my dear reader, you will have to use your imagination! Nevertheless, I believe that table centrepieces are essential, not only for decorating for the family lunch on Eater Sunday, but also throughout the entire weekend. The kids, for once, will enjoy seeing them for as long as possible.

Easter Decorations with Vases

Vases could come in very handy when it comes to creating a beautiful centrepiece. You can hang cuttings of Easter bunnies or eggs on some branches. A rather traditional Easter decoration that is very popular in some European cultures. You can also incorporate a vase, or several vases, as a part of a bigger assembly.

Easter Decorations with Bowls, Baskets ans Stands

Bowls, baskets, and egg stands are an Eater must-have. However, no one said that you have to be all dull about them. Even if you buy an egg stand from the nearest store, you can jazz it up with flowers, ribbons, cuttings, glitter, and anything else you have at hand at home, or anything your little one can suggest.

Green Elements for Easter Decorations

Using lent, grass, tulips, leaves and other greenery, s a tradition at most European cultures, where Easter also marks the end of the winter and the beginning of the summer, so why not let the breeze of other cultures in your home, and add some pizzaz to your table centrepieces. However, using natural elements in your Easter decorations is rather tricky, and you will have to conduct a thorough post-Easter cleaning once the holiday is over, warn cleaners Forest Hill.

Hopefully, you have enjoyed my suggestions for Easter decorations. If you have any ideas that you would like to share, I will be more than happy to see them in the comments section. Additionally, I know that the kids can get really ecstatic about the Easter celebrations, so you should consider signing them up for some of the hottest Eater events in Melbourne.


Learn the Secrets of Happiness at the Conference in Melbourne

Learn the Secrets of Happiness at the Conference in Melbourne

Let the world become a better and happier place to live!

Hello, dear cleaning lovers! I am Joanna and I’m happy to be able to share with you some of the latest news on Melbourne’s top events this summer. Special thanks to Margaret, for letting me reach you again through her wonderful blog.

This year, Melbourne will be hosting an amazing conference on Happiness and Its Causes for the first time. Complex topics like love, psychology, resilience and sandness will be discussed and traversed by renown professors and researchers.

Happy girl

  • prof. Ed Diener is one of the world’s leading researchers in the subjects related to happiness.
  • Michael Leunig, a poet and artist who enjoys topics like philosophy and is an aspiring cartoonist
  • Dr Helen Fisher is a renowned anthropologist who develops in the sphere of romantic love and human emotions
  • Linda Lantieri is a specialist in emotional learning and resilience. She works with children who lost their parents in 9/11 and gives her best to help people overcome tragedy events.

The icing of the cake is going to be an emotionally and intellectually directed lection with Dalai Lama.

All of the specialists are going to share their thoughts, experiences and professional insights on human emotions. The topics which are going to be reflected on the conference cover an extremely wide range of subtopics about emotional and mental health. The questions will definitely be a lot, but I’m sure most of them will be answered through the conference.

My personal experience shows that the emotional state of a human being in not only related to the environment in which he is being raised and is growing, but it has a way bigger complexity. Each human has his own perception of the world. Some people crack and “explode” over simple daily tasks, family problems and domestic chores like cleaning, cooking and gardening, and there is definitely a lot this conference could help with.

So what do you think about the upcoming conference in Melbourne and what are your expectations about this event?

Share your experience and let me know if you are going to attend. I’ll be more than happy to see what you think and have to say!


Why Hating Mondays is Perfectly Normal

Why Hating Mondays is Perfectly Normal

 

You wake up and you feel, as if your vital force has been sucked out of you… You have no desire to get out of bed, yet you realise with a brutal clarity that you MUST… You feel more demotivated than ever to go to work, and still you force yourself to do it… Those are just a few of the reasons why hating Mondays is perfectly normal.

Why Monday is so Harsh on Us?

To be honest, for me Monday mornings are the worst! I believe it is due to the shock your entire systems goes through. From ultimate relaxation, sleeping in and just doing what you love, you are bound to wake up on the Monday morning and bump heads with reality… and it is never pleasant.

Since most of us are creatures of habit, we tend to get used to a certain regime and follow it, therefore, sometimes, it is difficult to sleep in during the weekend, as you have trained yourself to get up in time for work. Nevertheless, most of us wake up and then fall back asleep. Just when you have had two perfectly good days to get used to a couple of extra hours of sleep… BAM… Monday comes right back and makes you change your rhythm once again.

… and so the tedious cycle goes on and on …and you despise the first day of the week more and more..

How to Fight the “Monday Hatred”?

There are numerous way to battle the odd feeling of being displeased that the weekend has ended. You can either opt for the lazy perspective of having a perfectly calm (if somewhat boring) evening and go to bed early. Not only will you get the vital and oh-so-needed rest, but you will also be ready to jump-start your week. However, this solution is not that great as you will have to sacrifice a few perfectly good hours, you could otherwise spend with friends clubbing or even doing some housework – just because you can.

Speaking of chores, I strongly recommend delegating your cleaning duties to professional cleaners in Docklands. There is something utterly bothersome in spending your precious spare time doing housework – cleaning in particular. Even if you are doing it just for the sake of bragging to your colleagues that you didn’t have to lift a finger to dust or vacuum.

While Mondays tend to be more than annoying, they are “a necessary evil“. The best way to fight your “Monday hatred” is to use positive attitude. Focus on the great stuff you have experienced over the weekend and cling to the warming feeling until Friday arrives!
