KEEPING IT SIMPLE BUT ALWAYS SPECIAL, EASTER IN BLOOM…..
“The GREAT gift of EASTER is HOPE and we all need a LITTLE more of THAT”
Let everything you do be done with love……Happy Easter!!
This Easter is going to be a little different, a lot quieter and for many a time on their own. I am sure so many of us had wonderful trips planned for the Easter weekend, family lunches organised and gatheries planned to share with our loved ones. “Easter Spells out beauty, the rare beginning of new Life”.
I hope my short blog inspires you to let your creativity flow, whether on your own or with those you are in “lock down” with. Rummage through what you have in your home and add some brightness onto your table for Easter, brunch, lunch or dinner.
A few tips to make your Easter table extra special by adding detail to your place setting:
- A joyful colour palette is always good for Easter, its a truly special celebratory time of the year. Now during this time of “lock down” more than ever
- A simple white table cloth and white crockery becomes a canvass to work with when setting a lunch or dinner table giving you the felixibity to add colour in any form
- A single flower, a piece of greenery or a bunch of blooms from your garden always adds a natural element to the table, if you cannot find fresh, artificial will do for this Easter centrepiece
- Adding small details to your place settings always adds interest
Mixing PATTERNS and TEXTURES
Combining Vintage Placemats in shades of PINK with BOLD floral napkins added a casual feel to my table setting. This year it seems so much more apt to have just a special yet casual Easter lunch. The placemats inspired the colours I chose. A playful mix of bold colours that follow through with all the elements on the table. Never be too scared to add your own creativity to your table setting, food or home decor.
An ECLECTIC mix of GLASSWARE and SILVERWARE…..
Add a little interest by mixing glassware in different colours, Here I added some antique coloured wine glasses with a small turkish water glass and a simple vintage champagne flute to add interest. My centrepiece vessels were pieces of old silverware handed down from my mother, coffee pots, tea pots and a milk jug. A wonderful eclectic mix of vintage items that added a old worldly feel to this tablescape.
The SIMPLICITY is in the DETAIL….
My collection of antique cutlery given to me by my mother always makes for an elegant table setting no matter the look. For the detail I tied the cutlery together with a lovely satin bright pink ribbon. Adding a simple flower from the Hydrangea blooms in my centrepiece tucked into the ribbon. A dried twig with pale pink dried flowers made for a truly simple yet creative detail, adding a personal touch to the place setting.
