If you’re entertaining for the whole family this Easter, then you’ll want to create a perfect springtime setting that everyone can enjoy. Follow our guide to achieving traditional Easter decor in your home with themed tableware, homemade accessories and beautiful displays.
Traditional Easter decor is a joy to create, thanks to a pretty and feminine colour scheme of pastel pinks, yellows and blues, on a clean white backdrop, with fun and quirky touches, such as birds, eggs and rabbits. You can also fill your rooms with spring flowers to capture a traditional Easter theme throughout your home.
The best place to start your new decor is with the table setting. Choose vintage-style touches, such as china with faded floral designs and vintage glassware. Build a pretty display of springtime flowers to create a striking centrepiece that will wow your guests.
Add on traditional Easter extras such as painted eggs in teacups, bowls or even piled high in jars. Use your regular homeware to make a unique Easter display. A cake stand is the perfect place to display ornamental birds, bunnies or homemade gifts. Fill bell jars and lanterns with eggs and flowers to finish your theme.
Other traditional Easter ideas can be placed throughout the home to continue your new look in every room. Place homespun decor on tables and chests: Flowers in eggcups, or tea cups filled with eggs and pretty displays of blossom and tulips will finish off a traditional Easter theme in the home.
Create your own tinted egg shells by dipping them into a solution of dye and water, then fill with delicate spring flowers.
Baskets personalised with individual name tags will add to the excitement of a children’s Easter egg hunt.
