Candy Colours and Pastel Home Decorations

Happy (belated) Easter! I'm just starting to feel normal after travelling for 25 hours from London to Adelaide and have been busy catching up with my family and boy is it nice to see everyone after such a long time away!
I got a big surprise when my sister and her family arrived in Adelaide on Friday (a day earlier than expected) to come and visit me at my parents place. Easter with my nephews was so much fun and it was just so nice to see them after 2 years away.

Today's post is insipired by something I just loved when I was little - candy easter eggs. These rare treats were all the more special for being something unique and unusual. I think the home decoration in these pictures with the pastel candy colours reminds me of candy eggs and long ago easters. I think there are some lovely candy colour shades, which are a great basis for a range of home decor ideas. In particular, I love the pastel greens, blues and pinks; I always seem to be drawn to these colours more than any others, in particular pastel blues and greens.
