Eggcellent Easter Table Ideas
Easter is another perfect event to be creative with your table setting. We've put together some 'eggcellent' table ideas for you.
Finally, Easter time is approaching! One of the few times of year that it's acceptable to eat our body weight in chocolate and welcome back those long awaited goodies that we gave up for lent. For many of us, we also like to celebrate the occasion by spending lots of time with our family and have a lovely Easter lunch or dinner. With that in mind, we have created an Easter table that is super easy to try at home and involves making some fun DIY Easter eggs that are great to make with the kids or a partner.
Watch our quick video below with a simple tutorial on how to create our pastel painted eggs, cute feathery eggs and amazing rose gold foil eggs.
All you need for your Easter table is:
Foam Easter eggs (we used small and large ones which were available from The Range
Easter feathers - you can purchase these from The Range
Gilding flakes (Sunkissed Copper) - you can purchase these from The Range
Artificial birds nest
Any Easter coloured paints (we went for baby pink, light blue and a metallic lilac)
If you don't have the time to create your own DIY Easter decorations, you can buy some lovely homemade decorations from Sainsbury's (we love this cute little faux pussy willow birds nest). Once you have your Easter decorations at the ready, all you need to do now is pop them in bowls on each place setting or in mini teacup & saucers. We sprinkled some Cherry Blossom on the table (you can find these in abundance this time of year) and added some tulips to small vases and jugs as a finishing touch to continue this Spring-like theme.
- Layer dinner and side plates and different sized bowls on each individual place setting to add texture and dimension to your Easter table.
- This look will work beautifully with white tableware, but also looks super stylish when you mix and match different colours. We used Portmeirion's brand new collection, Choices (available to buy next month).
- To jazz up your dining table and have a bit of fun, use copper cutlery instead of the usual silver. We think this adds a great twist to a typical dining table and is bang on trend.
