How to lay an Easter Table

Before you start laying your table, select your theme. We decided that nothing says Easter more than bunnies. Having a theme will help your table feel cohesive, even if you mix and match colours (unless colour is your theme) and tableware.

  1. Every table begins with its base which can be a runner, a table cloth or a bare table. We opted for an off white 100 per cent cotton tablecloth as a canvas for our colourful decorations.
  2. Lay your tableware. We started with brightly colour raffia placemats and layered on plates and bowls.
  3. Create your centrepiece. Candles add height and drama and if your gathering carries on into dusk when lit provide a lovely ambience. Small bud vases containing a few stems randomly dotted down the table add lovely bursts of colour. We couldn’t resist adding a large putcher of tulips at the end of the table. Then we added bunnies throughout. And more chocolate… in the form of small bowls of chocolate eggs.
  4. Place settings. Here’s the spot where your loved ones will sit so your place settings provide an opportunity to make them feel extra special. Little table favours that guests can take with them are a nice touch. Below are two bunny themed ideas for an individual Easter setting.
    Any little ones joining in the fun? Why not keep them entertained with an Easter crafting kit and some dress up, all tidily popped into our Easter bunny basket.
