1. Create an Easter table

Treat your dining table as the hub of your home when entertaining this Easter bank-holiday weekend. Fill with delicious homecooked food and sweet treats, plus simple decorations and cute accessories with an animal feel. Stick to sugary, pastel colours to evoke all things Eastery, and display a traditional cake as a centrepiece to make your family and friends smile. 

2. Hang a wreath

Hanging a wreath is a quick and easy way to give your home an Easter feel. Craft your own by starting off with a florist's oasis ring, then weave twigs around and into the frame, finish with spray-painted eggs and flowers for a decorative touch. 

3. Theme your flowers

Small touches can make all the difference. Opt for flowers with a nod to the season - such as daffodils, tulips and hydrangeas - keep colours and varieites of flower to three and choose soft and girly colours for an Easter vibe.

5. Spring animal motifs

Springtime animals like rabbits and chicks are a key element to Easter-themed accessories. Head to the high street for prints on items such as cushions, crockery and animal-shaped items. We suggest dotting them around the house instead of going overboard, to avoid looking stylish and not overly novelty.

5. Personalised place settings

Add a personal element to your Easter table by creating individual place settings. Take inspiration from this John Lewis & Partners image and consider brightening up your table settings with a flower stem and an Easter-inspired napkin ring. Go all out and invest in new crockery for that extra special touch.
