How to style a fun and colourful Easter table at home.
After a rather downcast weekend, I’m so happy that Spring has returned again with some glorious sunshine.
I can’t believe how time has flown, as next weekend is Easter.
This year I’ve been very organised, and have started thinking about how I would style my Easter table for a tea party.
As you can see in the photo above, it is very light and colourful.Easter colours are my favourite, maybe because I’m a Spring person. The palette tends to be soft pastel hues with the occasional pop of yellow.
I’ve styled my Easter table using the homeware collection from Matalan. I love those pastel blue placemats from Matalan.
How cute are those bunny plates? Love their pink cheeks and dotted orange ears. They come with matching egg cups, bowls and mugs too.
The prices are an absolute steal too. The plates are £4 each and the egg cups are £2 each.
I think they would make great Easter gifts for kids too, if you don’t want to overdo the chocolate gifts.An Easter table is never complete without some Spring flowers.
You may want to purchase some pretty Tulips or Daffodils, but if you want something that would last longer, then take a look at the pretty Faux flowers on my table from Matalan too.
They look so realistic and totally light up the table.Of course an Easter tea party is not just for kids right? We as adults need to join in the fun too.
I’ve selected some blue rimmed plates from Matalan to match the placemats, and also a pretty floral tea set collection.Here you can see the floral plate and teacup up close. This collection was actually being sold at Matalan for Mother’s Day, but I think the floral pattern is perfect for an Easter table too.I’ve placed some of the Easter egg hanging decorations in the bunny egg cups to create some fun.
You could of course hang them all up as an Easter table centrepiece too.To make the table more colourful, I’ve also added some other pastel mugs. The cute unicorn and pink with gold mugs are all from Matalan.
In the distance, on the fireplace, I have added a Happy Easter carrot sign and the fluffy rabbit head on the dresser is a bag for the Easter egg hunt.It goes without saying that cakes and chocolates should feature in the Easter tea party. Don’t those cupcakes look tempting on those floral tiered plates? I’ve also scattered chocolate eggs with cute pastel wrappers on the table.
The Easter paper decor are from an Easter egg hunt kit, again from Matalan.In the top left corner of the table is a fun Easter DIY kit, for children to decorate their own ceramic Easter eggs. After all, Easter tea parties are not just for eating chocolates right? There has to be some DIY followed by a vigorous run around for the egg hunt.
The silver cutlery is from Matalan too.I hope you have enjoyed the post, and that it has given you some inspiration for your Easter table. Everything in this place setting is from Matalan and they are so affordable too.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and a fabulous upcoming Easter holiday.
