An Easter Table
The table is the focal point of Easter dinner – family and friends gather to enjoy a delicious meal. Make your table unique this year with these ideas to spark your table-setting mojo.
Simple and easy, all you need are a carton or five of eggs, white tulips and some large glass vases. Use a clean, white table cloth or runner. Fill the vases with hard-boiled eggs and fill with the white tulips. For the place settings, put white napkins on the plates, topping it off with an egg that has a tulip in it.
When I think about Easter, I picture pastels – light pinks, yellows, greens and blues. Use these for your center pieces with flowers and dyed eggs. Place a tall clear drinking glass in the center of a large vase. Fill the glass with water and arranged flowers (roses, gerbera daisies, tulips, hyacinth and bells of Ireland). Stack the dyed eggs between the glass and the jar for a visually stunning center piece.
Flowers & Coral
Flowers are the physical embodiment of spring, which make them great for your Easter table decor. Place floral-patterned china on a placemat that is one of the colours from the plate. Include a tinted drinking glass. Tie a ribbon loosely around a white, cloth napkin. As the finishing touch, add a painted Easter egg to the plate.
In most of Europe, Daffodils are the traditional Easter flower, taking the floral decor one step closer to perfection. For each place setting, put a green napkin, folded into quarters, and a daffodil blossom in a wide glass. Pull the corners of the napkin down to look like leaves. Complement each setting with a green table runner or a light blue table cloth.
