Easter is fast becoming the second Christmas - with shops offering more and more decorations for the home and the day itself providing another excuse to invite the extended family round for a celebratory feast. 

While that might not be happening so much this year, getting creative for your Easter Sunday dinner table is still a great way to make the day special and keep up morale in your household. 

We've picked some of our favourite styling ideas for Easter this year, all of which can be either foraged, bought in the supermarket during your weekly shop, or something you undoubtedly already have in the cupboard. 

Make a hanging decoration

We love this simple styling trick from Dunelm. Lay your napkin out in a square and fold in from two opposite corners until you have a long, narrow strip. Wrap around an eggshell and tie with an elastic band or string to create these cute bunny ears.

The wreath is one of those traditionally Christmas decorations that has become more common to see at other times of years. Spring and Easter wreaths have been popular for some time, so if you already have one, why not change it up and use as a centrepiece for your table. This one from Lights4fun houses a pillar candle inside, but you could also place a vase of flowers in the centre. 

Easter crackers
