Easter is fast approaching, and for those looking to host the perfect feast, it can only mean gorgeous spring-inspired decoration ideas are officially on the radar.
If you’re looking to have family or friends over for a special Easter dinner, why not decorate the table to make it feel even more special? Simple tricks and additions can make all the difference.
Sonia Pash, co-founder of Temza Interior Design Studios, shows you her take on Easter decoration, plus some tips and tricks you might want to take into consideration…
Pick a colour scheme
Pastels are a great choice, with lilac currently cited as the colour to be accessorising with – use it for table dressing and hanging decorations.
Warm beiges have been around for a while, however, from this year, they are accompanied by milky ice cream tones inspired by the 70s.
The new neutrals add softness and calmness to the quickly returning retro era.
Colours such as blush and emerald green are also very on-trend.
These hues have been all over the recent design exhibitions and are here to stay, as they indeed bring joy and happiness.
Quirky and fun for the expressive maximalist and sophisticated and contemporary for all the minimalists out there. A perfect balance!
hand paint your eggs
Go that extra mile and try hand painting eggs. In some cultures painting Easter eggs is a family tradition.
No matter if this is the case for you, it is a fun activity, that you can enjoy with your family, friends or colleagues-team building or bonding exercise, it will surely bring up your creative side and lift up your spirits.
You can create them in a variety of ways: acrylic paint is popular as it’s easy to work with and will create vibrant colours.
Alternatively, why not create dyed eggs from natural ingredients found in your kitchen?
You are sure to end up with cute, unique, authentic decoration that makes your festive table extra special.
Have a easter EGG Centrepiece
As well as placing a few of the eggs around the table, why not add them to an artificial nest?
It could be a great way to make a focal point on the table or even as a way to add interest to your place settings.
Choose artisan looking stoneware as your tableware
Not only do these look incredible but they add charm and unpretentiousness to your table.
We have seen beautiful glazed ceramic pottery in coffee shops and restaurants a lot lately. It is about time these make a permanent move to our homes too!
You don’t have to go Easter bunny crazy to suggest a spring feel to your table. Subtle touches in or to your ceramics can work just as well.
Why not consider a rabbit-themed butter or serving dish to add quirky interest to the table?
Try floral centrepieces
This doesn’t need to be elaborate; it could be as simple as a couple of cherry blossom branches and a few Easter egg baubles in pastel tones.
It’s a great choice if you don’t want to blow the budget, yet you’d like to incorporate the festive mood into your interior space.
INCORPORATE floral touches
Your table doesn’t always have to include an large floral arrangement: a sprinkle of petals in a matching shade to your colour scheme can also suggest the perfect spring table.
Alternatively, why not add a simple stemmed flower in a pastel coloured hue to a table setting?
Set a table for easter brunch
If you’re creating an Easter brunch table instead you can always serve a twist on your morning eggs in stylish pastel hued egg cups.
Experiment with an Easter tree
If you are decorating an Easter tree, mix up your decorations with various sized and shaped hanging eggs. You could even add on decorative clip on birds to add a fun spring twist.
consider a pastel hued table runner
A blush or light green table runner not only looks the part but it will also protect your table from any spillages.
Transform your front door
A wreath on your front door is a simple way to make a statement and instantly transform your entrance space.
