How to Create an Easy Easter table

Setting a table beautifully always gives me great joy but it needn’t be too onerous. I loved creating a special tablescape for The Telegraph Lifestyle pages. Obviously I went all out! But it shouldn’t become a chore. Here  I’ve done a step by step video of how I laid my table.

Step 1

I love mixing textures as well as prints. First step was adding my new striped tie dye linen. It has lots of different shades of green, giving it the perfect spring like feel. The woven placemats are by Mmaa social, a brand that supports female artisans in Africa. These simple green striped mats go beautifully with my teal bubble plates and give a great mix of textures.
 
Step 2
I love adding sweet paper decorations from Meri Meri Party to my table. Each year they bring out different pieces and this year’s honey comb paper bunnies are a delight to scatter amongst the flowers. I also added some of their cake toppers into bud vases as well as my marbled eggs.

Step 4
I love to fill some of my small flow bowls with sweet treats to nibble on throughout the meal. Special Easter treat!



Or I like to fill them with bulbs and cover in moss for extra decoration!



As an extra twist on the Christmas advents wreath, I added some of Meri Meri’s ombré candles. Such a special touch.



Step 5
Finally I like to fold my serviettes as bunny ears with my bubble napkin rings and new tie-dye serviettes Then I pop an Easter. Egg in the centre. There’s a step by step guide below.







Bunny Ear Napkin How-to

Step 1 - Take a square napkin and fold it in half to make a triangle.

Step 2 - Fold the pointed end of the triangle to meet the base of the triangle and keep folding the edge of the napkin over until it is roughly the shape of a ruler.

Step 3 - Bend the napkin into a U-shape. Nestle a foil-wrapped chocolate egg (mine are from Tesco) at the bottom of the “U” of the napkin, and place a napkin ring over the ends of the napkin to secure the chocolate egg in place (if you don’t have napkin rings, you could use string or ribbon instead). Fan the two ends of the napkin out a bit to create the bunny ears.

Have the best fun creating your table, I hope I’ve inspired you to try some of my ideas in your own home
