Birthday blues

Feature Lisa Hibberd

It seems that birthday traditions are disappearing as, according to a poll by Betty Crocker, 27% of Brits admit they no longer mark theirs. The average age to stop celebrating turning a year older was just 28, and 30% of the people polled said birthdays ‘should be enjoyed by younger people’. A spokesman for Betty Crocker, which is using the research to highlight its ‘I Cake You’ campaign, says:‘Birthday celebrations shouldn’t stop once you reach a certain age – baking a cake is a heart-warming gesture, and will always make someone feel special.’.

About Your Home Magazine

At last we can kiss goodbye to the dark, dreary days of winter and look forward to the lighter, brighter days of spring. Easter comes early this year, so to celebrate we’ve put together some scrummy recipe ideas that are perfect if you’re having family and friends over during the Easter weekend (p.100). And, if you want to make it extra special, why not try your hand at our beautiful Easter craft projects to decorate your dining table too (p.60)? If you’re planning to make the most of the long bank holiday weekend with a spot of decorating, make sure you take a look at our brilliant eight-page spring trends forecast on page 36. We’ve picked the five hottest looks from the high street, so whether you’re drawn to laid-back coastal blues, eye-popping tropical brights or calming candy colours, you’re sure to find some inspiration for your new colour scheme. Sick of waiting for your other half to do the decorating? Then turn to page 66, where we’ll guide you step by step through the basics of tiling. I know the bank holiday is the time of year when many of you are ready to get back out in the garden. So on page 114, you’ll find our suggestions for which plants to include in your beds and borders to guarantee your garden is full of colour all year long – yes, even in winter! Finally, if like me, your pets are important members of your family, then make sure you read our low-down on pet insurance on page 18. Your furry friends will thank you!
