Easter is the perfect time to bring together family and friends and spend some quality time together. And what’s better than doing so over a meal? Our 10 dining guide tips hope to inspire the entertainer in you and create a relaxing, warm and stylish space for you and your guests.
1. Shades of pastels
Pastel pinks, blues, yellows and purples can create a soft and feminine setting and are very on trend for Easter 2015.
2. Neutrals teamed with a splash of colour
If pastels aren’t your thing you can’t go wrong with fresh neutrals to create an uplifting space. Team it up with key décor pieces using a deeper colour such as blue.
3. Table centrepiece
Go big and bold with your centrepiece. Use the elements as a key feature for the rest of your theme. A cake stand decorated with eggs, flowers, or a nest works well, or even branches arranged in a vase with hanging eggs.
4. Natural elements
Lighten the table with a touch of nature – flowers, moss, a nest, or vines. Easter is all about life, so a touch of greenery makes sense whilst looking great.
5. Table runner or table cloth
Add a cloth or runner to compliment your table setting. The linen will act as a backdrop for your chosen pieces.
For special events such as Easter, it’s worth going digging out those linen napkins. They create a sense of occasion and add a touch of luxury and sophistication.
7. Use your polished cutlery
We are all guilty of having gorgeous sets of silver cutlery in the cupboard that just don’t get used enough. So this Easter, make use of your best cutlery set: the polished silver will add elegance to your table.
8. Egg Effective
There are all sorts of non tacky eggs our in the shops this Easter, meaning you don’t have to settle for nasty plastic varieties. Invest in some ceramic, glass, or other type and you might find you want to leave them on display all year-round.
Don’t forget your bunnies. Moss, chocolate, ceramic and more – choose a bunny to complement your theme.
Candles create a sense of ambience in a room – there are never inappropriate.Read more
