Easter table settings and decorations

Easter table setting scene

Easter is the perfect time to invite friends and family over for a feast! If you’re cooking the Sunday roast we’ve got the perfect lamb recipe from our Ideal Home Show Cookbook, or make it an afternoon tea at home with plenty of sweet treats! You can make it really special with our Easter table setting and decoration ideas. 


Spring colours

Pastel colours like pink and blue are perfect for an Easter table setting because they’re so on-trend at this time of year, but if you want to go bold then we recommend bright spring greens and sunshine yellows. A tablecloth is the perfect starting point for your table setting and to base your colour theme around. Use table decorations, tableware and tea sets that match or complement your scheme. A great idea is to paint hard-boiled eggs and display in egg cups or in a wicker basket as a table centerpiece.

Floral touches

Flowers and floral garlands are always a great choice as Easter table decorations and make an ideal table centerpiece. Daffodils and tulips are in season at this time of year and a big trend right now is to display them in glass or metal jugs or bottles instead of vases. Colouful jugs will complement your colour scheme and make a fantastic Easter style statement. Alternatively re-use old milk bottles, glass containers or pots. 


Cakes, chocolates and sweets

There’s no better way to tempt your Easter party guests than with an array of edible goodies. Fill glass containers, wicker baskets or even egg cartons with chocolate mini eggs. If you're good at baking you can decorate homemade biscuits with your guest's names to use as place cards, and bake cupcakes and place in Easter-themed cases. Your sandwiches and cakes will look fabulous placed on Easter-themed bowls and cake stands – add ribbons and bows to complete the Easter look.
