Easter hails the start of Spring, ushering in the much anticipated cherry blossom season in London and the welcoming sight of carpets of daffodils and tulips in Hyde Park and flowerbeds throughout the UK. So it is always fitting that Easter tables be brimming with freshly cut flowers in the beautiful pastel hues of the season.
This year, co-founder Julie used the purple Wild Child pattern as the base for her Easter table. Colour blocking table linen makes a strong statement but also provides the flexibility to add complementary colours through flowers and other decorative accessories. Here, she used pale purple tulips and white hyacinths grouped in Setting Pretty rattan wrapped votives along with a large bunch of white lilac flowers concentrated in the centre of the table to bring a wow factor, texture and height to her table.
Dressing a holiday table is a layering process which is best not to rush an hour before taking the lamb out of the oven. It is always a good idea to break out your Easter decorations and organise your linens, dishes, cutlery and glasses a couple of days in advance, if possible. No Easter table is complete without decorated eggs and chocolate. Scatter small decorative bowls filled with chocolate and Easter decorations for the finishing touches.
