Rooted in the tradition of breaking bread after a period of fasting, Easter has always been about gathering loved ones around the table to celebrate. Whether you’re spending the holiday entertaining little ones (painting eggs and crafting greetings cards is always a win) or hosting friends and family for a Sunday feast, the heart of the home - the kitchen table - has always been at the centre of this particular holiday.
Welcome the spring season with our 5 tips on perfecting your Easter table, from fresh flowers to playful decor - just don’t forget the chocolate…
If there’s one thing Easter lends itself to, it's kitsch. Go all out on the details this year: think ruffled napkins, pastel-hued ceramic vases, scalloped serving dishes and mismatched crockery for a dinner party the mad hatter would be proud of. We love Ib Lausen’s scalloped ceramics and Cocolulu’s ric rac napkins in candy pastels.
Florals for spring… We know, groundbreaking; but nothing says hello to the new season quite like fresh flowers. Opt for seasonal blooms like tulips, daffodils or hyacinths, or bring a delicate charm to your Easter table with wild flowers or gypsophila. With height and colour, fresh blooms work overtime to create the perfect tablescape so you don’t have to. All you need to do is find the perfect complementing vase. Don’t overlook dried flowers, too, an evergreen way to primp up any space.
If flowers aren’t your thing, a show stopping Easter dessert could be your ticket to a dramatic centrepiece that guests will remember. From speckled ceramic cake stands from Egg Back Home to brightly coloured melamine options from Rice or Hip Products that will see you through summer entertaining too, show off your Easter bake in style.
Finish off your Easter table with some sweet treats, perfect for little ones (and big kids) and an ideal party favour. Scatter your table with mini chocolate eggs, or hide them in quilted bunnies and folded napkins to give your guests a sweet surprise.
From Easter wreaths on the front door to greet your guests, to felt and paper honeycomb hanging decorations adorning the dining table, you can easily add a playful flourish to your Easter with some contemporary decorations. We love En Gry and Sif’s felt eggs and bunny baskets to spruce up your space. Even better, they’re great to use year after year for the all important post-dinner Easter egg hunt.
