It’s time to go big with your holiday home décor, and what better way to do just that than with a fresh and unforgettable tablescape.

Read on to discover our eggcellent ideas for decorating your table for Easter and create a display to impress!

Go fresh and floral with your display

The stunning floral displays that nature gifts us with are one of the many things we love about spring, so why not bring this same vibrant look to your dining room table?

Your beautiful spring blooms can be potted, planted, or arranged in a captivating wreath or topiary ball to provide a seasonal centrepiece that will delight you and your guests. It’s not just colourful flowers that should feature.

Easter grasses can be used to construct themed displays and centrepieces. You can create all this yourself after a quick visit to your local garden centre as Country Living explains:

“This simple egg-themed centrepiece can be made in less than 5-minutes flat! To make: Simply plant wheatgrass (available at garden stores or flower shops) in milk glass vessels such as the sugar dish, goblet, and vase shown here. Water as necessary to keep fresh. Sugar dishes also make for sweet placecard holders; simply tie a card to each handle.”

Bring springtime renewal to the table

Spring is all about fresh starts. Continue this theme by giving old scraps of fabric a new lease of life in your Easter tablescape!

Fabric scraps sporting springtime hues or patterns can be used to create alternative table decorations that you can dig out time and time again.

You could even use your newly acquired wool felting skills to transform old fibres into delightful Easter characters.

Don’t forget the eggs

Easter wouldn’t be Easter without an egg or two. Wooden, chocolate, polystyrene, or the real thing, eggs are always charming additions, whatever the style or scheme of your tablescape.

Decorating your own eggs is an Easter activity that every member of the family can have fun with. If you’re looking to let your creativity run wild with your Easter egg designs, you’ll love the marbleised look!

Here’s how to create your own utterly unique marbleised Easter eggs at home.

Your creative streak doesn’t have to end once you’ve finished decorating your eggs! Make the setting even more magical by fashioning nests out of moss, twigs, wicker, or shredded paper. Create egg themed displays in baskets, under oversized cloches, or in jars.

Craft a tiered display using your eggcellent creations to guarantee a real wow factor come brunch, lunch or dinner.

You can put the empty eggshells you discarded at breakfast to good use too by creating hanging displays that spark everyone’s imagination and excitement.

Add a pop of pastel

A bright colour scheme isn’t the only way to go. Try a softer, pastel palette to make your Easter tablescape timeless and elegant.

Our jute table runner in mint is a stunning, all-natural addition that’s certain to get those springtime vibes flowing.

Made from braided organic jute, this table runner transcends the trends and the season, ensuring a hint of spring-inspired beauty can be a feature all year round.

Take your celebration alfresco

If the weather holds up, take your themed brunch or dinner outdoors to really set the scene for Easter. A garden party offers an ideal way to show what Easter is really about.

Go rustic with your table display by using bits from your garden and even your veggie patch. Carrots combined with some beautiful flowers make surprisingly beautiful centrepieces. Daffodils can be potted and added to the table for a pop of colour that’s synonymous with spring.
