At Setting Pretty, our modus operandi is that a pretty table always makes a meal more delicious. This is truest of all on holidays when setting a table as a feast for the eyes is equally as important as serving a delicious feast.
This year, our Notting Hill Ikat in Blue takes centre stage on our Easter table. Our bold pattern calls for fewer and simpler embellishments. Flowers in barely pink and white are kept soft and feminine and a handful of Easter eggs are added as a delicate finishing touch.
Here are our simple steps to creating a beautiful Easter lunch table.
Choose Your Base
Our Notting Hill Blue Ikat is the perfect complement to the pastel hues of the season and brings a regal touch to our table setting. Rather than having a tablecloth, we opted for matching placemats, napkins and a runner to show off our beautiful wooden table.
Make a statement by choosing a beautiful napkin fold for added decorative flair and to show off your napkins. Here, we used a bow tie fold, secured with our beaded SP Stacks napkin rings, and displayed them on an angle. [Head to our Napkin folding guides for tips on recreating this easy fold.
We kept flowers simple and seasonal. Delicate domes of pink hydrangeas and white ranunculus along with clusters of bud vases filled with white hyacinths bring softness to our Spring table and act as a counterbalance to our choice of bold print.
We love decorating eggs to coordinate with our table décor. This year, robin’s egg blue and pink coloured eggs punctuated the table perfectly. To spice them up just a touch, we glued on a garland of pearls (found on Amazon), giving them just the right touch of glamour. And also because a strand of pearls makes everything look better.
Happy Easter. May the season of hope and renewal shine upon all.
