This Easter might not be the traditional family get together we all had in mind but that doesn’t mean we can’t find new ways of celebrating the most colourful holiday of the calendar year from the comfort of our own homes.
Why not get the whole family involved and make it a virtual competition?
Since we’re all spending more time indoors, it’s good to break up our days with some much-needed light relief. For some, that might mean hosting a quiz night on Zoom, for others it might be setting and styling your Easter table to restore a little sense of normality. Why not get the whole family involved and make it a virtual competition? May the best household win!
If you’re skipping over Easter plans this year, save these Spring table styling ideas to your Pinterest board for a future feast when the whole family are back together again.
Colour clash your table linen
Dusky pinks and punchy mustards make for a dream linen combination whatever time of year but this colour pairing really comes into its own at Easter time.
Printed stoneware and a table runner help tie it all together with a nod to Easter fun. Add in some texture and visual interest with some dried flowers or fresh if you prefer – we’ve gone for the aptly named dried Bunny / Hare Tail otherwise known as Lagurus Grass and the gorgeous naturally yellow Archillea Yarrow stems.
Create an Easter grazing table
Here’s one to keep the kids entertained! Bring the outside in and go all-out Peter Rabbit Mr McGregor’s garden style with an artificial grass table runner and show-stopping Easter wreath.
You can create a homely, vintage tea party inspired table by filling a few glass cloches with classic books
If you haven’t got a wreath, you can create a homely, vintage tea party inspired table by filling a few glass cloches with classic books, flowers or other seasonal décor. Or, simply make use of your fancy cake stands and decorate your table with your desserts instead.
Scatter in some Easter-themed chick decorations, use decorative eggs instead of place cards and create a centrepiece with seasonal blooms – the brighter the better! Cheery Daffs, tulips and hyacinths look and smell lovely in the middle of a table. To finish, layer the look with charger plates and snack bowls to add symmetry and pops of colour.
Go minimal with Spring pastels
Easter doesn’t have to be excessive, you can create a minimal tablescape with soft pastel accents and fuss-free styling. Keep things simple with decorative plates, rustic wood pinch pots and serve ware, metallic cutlery and seasonal pussy willow for a laid-back setting perfect for brunch or dinner.
To make the Easter bunny napkins follow these simple steps:
- Place your napkin flat down in a diamond shape and fold in half from top to bottom.
- Take the bottom point/edge and roll it up to meet the top of the napkin.
- Place an egg (we’ve gone for the decorative kind) in the centre and wrap the napkin around it to create two long bunny ears at the top.
- Secure with ribbon or string et voila!
Who knew a napkin could be this visually-appealing! Finish off by adding a sprig of eucalyptus or rosemary on top and you’re done.
