Easter is one of my favourite times of year. I love spring time as it is with all of the blue skies, fresh mornings and pretty new flowers. Having my birthday always around Easter must have something to do with it too 😉 I remember having nearly all of my birthdays off school as they were in the Easter holidays. Except my 18th birthday was just after returning to school – typical, right?
I love decorating for each time of year, and like to do a little table centrepiece for each season. I did some centrepiece or tablescape ideas for Christmas, so thought I would do one for Easter too. I love all of the pastel colours, and all of the tulips and daffodils that bring some brightness to the table at Easter time.
So here are some ideas for you. Would love to know what your favourites are.
I love the simplicity of this one, as most of us would have these things already in the house. A bag of mini eggs and some flowers and there you go. If you’re planning a big Easter meal, you could even make them into place settings which I think would look really good.
Again, how simple but sweet is this one?! I like the idea of bringing the outside in a little at Easter. I make an Easter tree each year but just find twigs in the garden to use. So this is a cute way of making a nest with some finds from the garden. You could use quail eggs as they are small and cute, or just use some plastic / fake eggs.
I like that this isn’t overly ‘Easter’ if that makes sense? Just a subtle hint of spring with the daffodils as table settings. They double up as a small favour too if you’re having guests round. Their bright yellow colour will really stand out on a white table cloth.
So pretty and girly! If you’ve got a cake stand, then it doesn’t need to be just for cakes! At Christmas you can fill a cake stand with baubles, and at Easter you can fill it with colourful eggs. It is really simple but effective and would look good in the middle of your Easter table.
I made an Easter tree for the first time last year and was really pleased with it. When you just get twigs from the garden, you can make it as large or small as you’d like. So this can work as a general decoration or make a little smaller to work for a table centrepiece. I think it would look good with something like mini-eggs in the bottom of the jar instead of stones, though.
Who needs a table runner when you can create your own out of an almost ‘deconstructed’ Easter tree? It is really simple and I think it might be my favourite, as it stars my absolute faves; tulips.
Do you have any favourites here? Happy Easter!
