Easter Tablescaping: Hop to it!
With the long Easter weekend coming up, we have the perfect opportunity to take our time over good food and good company (even if they’re faces on a screen). Whether its pancakes stacked high with fresh fruit for breakfast or an Easter Sunday roast with all the trimmings, make it extra special with a spring themed table setting. Decorating where you eat with everything from bright yellows and cheerful characters to fresh flowers and ornaments will make everyone in your home beam from ear to ear (and the internet if you’re a sharer). If your style is classic country, modest and modern, or a celebration of everything in-between, get ready to fill up on inspiration below.
Serving spring looks
Layering your table is key, so start with a tablecloth or runner - a colourful design is just the thing for Easter, or you stay neutral and add accents of colour later. Placemats and coasters can be layered with plates, bowls, and glasses you’ll be using throughout the meal to add dimension. Try adding a little decoration on each plate or arrange a napkin into a fun shape for some added cheer. Adding pops of colour to your table will make it extra special, and beaming yellow really encompasses everything springtime represents. Our dipped ochre Elements dinner set range and Homestead range is perfect for the occasion. To stop the fun from going flat, add height to your table with a vase of spring flowers, a freshly pruned apple blossom twig or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous in the kitchen - a rather tall cake. Top it all off with seasonal details like our adorable sheep and bunny table decorations and you’re set for an Easter weekend feast.
If you have little ones at home, you could create a space for them to enjoy an Easter meal - this could take place at their own little table or you could spruce up where they sit at the ‘big’ dining table. Using everything from hanging bumble bees and eggs to baa-rilliant sheep plates and bowls, it’s hard to know what your mini-me will be more excited about (although it’s probably the chocolate isn’t it?). They could even join in with the decorating by making a few Easter crafts like colourful paper bunting and recycled toilet roll bunnies or helping you whip up a sweet treat in the kitchen.
