As the days get longer and the birdsong gets louder, we can't help feeling excited about the coming Spring. This time of year is all about rebirth, regeneration and celebrating life. It's the perfect time to bring some inspiration from Nature into your home and spend time with loved ones over an Easter lunch or family gathering. Creating a beautiful Easter table setting will make any celebration feel more special. And it needn't be complicated – we've got some simple tips on making your mealtime feel even more magical.
How to create an Easter table setting:
Linen table napkins lend a sophisticated air to any table setting. They are also super practical, mopping up spills quickly and feeling soft against your skin. Our range of linen tableware is machine washable and can be tumble dried, so you don't have to worry about stains or marks. Choose from our huge range of colours – from fresh pastels and zingy citrus to natural shades – to match your tablecloth, or go for a contrasting shade to add interest. We love our white Lara linen napkins paired with the tablecloth, as shown below.
Create defined seating places and keep hot plates away from your table with a linen placemat. These 100% linen hand woven stunning beauties come in a wide choice of colours, and are soft to touch whilst also being strong and resilient. Because they are machine washable and can be dried in a dryer they make the perfect practical yet attractive addition to your table setting, protecting your table from those accidental spills. For a charming table setting for two, we've used our Terra placemat and napkins in Latte, creating a soft, pastel backdrop.
Another great accessory for your table that's less formal than a tablecloth but still feels special is a table runner. These soft, pure linen accents for your table are an easy way to make your mealtime seem more festive. In addition our linen table runners come in various gorgeous shades like muted greys, vintage-inspired stripes and neutrals. You can mix and match with other products from our sumptuous table linen range. For a minimalist, pared back style, combine our Lara table runner in silver with matching napkins.
- Flowers and natural objects
Bring a bunch of fresh Spring flowers to your table and place in one large vase in the centre, or divide into smaller jars along the length of the runner or tablecloth. If your space is big enough, a large blossom branch makes a stunning display in the centre of a table. Make a nest from twigs and moss, add some found feathers and quail's eggs for a charming Easter themed centrepiece. Candles always make a table setting feel magical, so add a few in neutral white or colours that match your table linen. If you don't want to make a nest, use one of our Jazz linen baskets to hold some painted or chocolate eggs. These come in three sizes and look lovely filled with fresh bread or Easter buns, are also great for egg hunts!
