When it comes to table styling and decorating, it is good to start with a theme. For Easter this year it’s all about the humble egg. They can be painted any colour, thus taking care of your colour scheme without the need to go out and buy coloured linens and accent pieces. They’re also a great way to reference Easter whilst avoiding the cliché’s of yellow and rabbits. We recommend starting with a neutral palette of greys and whites and letting the colour of your eggs be the pop that livens up the table.
To assist you in styling the perfect Easter table, we have collected some of our favourite inspirations from around the web.
Our favourite is Midwest Living’s glass trifle dish filled with dyed eggs and tiny sprigs of flowers and greenery. Hint: to create a more contemporary look dye the eggs in shades of grey, white and charcoal.
Liven your table up by adding tinny little squares of gold foil or even adding geometric shapes. Speaking of gold, Cascarones have become all the rage this Easter! Oh Happy Days have done a great DIY to help you make them. They seem like a lot of fun but I’m not sure about cleaning up the mess!
Have you ever thought about giving your eggs a tie-dye look? The principle is eggsactly (sorry bad pun!). Just tie rubber bands or electrical tape around your eggs before dying them. Water coloured eggs look amazing too!
For a classic, elegant look go organic. Use cute little nests or beds of moss or alfalfa under your eggs. Better yet, place saplings inside! Keep your napery in tones of raw, grey or white linen. Its all about adding texture when you go for the organic look.
