Create an Easter tree

Easter isn’t complete without Easter eggs, but this simple and elegant Easter tree table display is suitable for a subtle dining room centrepiece or a seasonal accent elsewhere in the house.  It is totally design friendly, looks so pretty and really sets the scene.  Choose a ready-made tree or use stems like the fake blossom branches here. Then dress with eggs, birds or anything you like, fixing with ribbon or wire.

Use antique crockery

Spring flowers make a wonderful table display in vintage containers.  How stylish is this simple arrangement with antique-style cups and saucers filled with chocolate eggs and tiny spring flowers?

Personal egg table setting

Add a special touch to place settings and create a place setting that’s undeniably Easter with a paper-strip nest.  Take coloured paper and shred them into tiny strips (a paper shredder works well).  Form the paper strips into a ball large and place an egg in the center of each ball, forming the strips into a nest around the egg.  Let each guest know where they’re sitting with a pretty monogram sticker.

Add an egg or two

A simple trough display makes a big impact! Place little posies of flowers like tulips, daffodils or daisies in small pots or glasses (this makes it easier to add water), place in the wooden trough, then add some moss and two different colours of eggs.  For a really simple finishing touch, write names on brown eggs with a black fine point marker.

White, an alternative to yellow

While we love the sunny yellow of daffodils, it might not be the best accent colour for your dining table.  How about snowdrops as an elegant alternative?  A bunch tied with ribbon make a charming place setting, especially amongst a mixture of plain white china and glassware.

A tiered Easter display

A two-tier dish with flower filled egg cups creates a pretty (and easy to make) centerpiece for your table.  Choose small budded flowers in similar colours and trim the stems so that the blooms will peak over the edge of the egg cup.

Make some bunting

Wrap your own eggs

Ditch the garish packaging on shop-bought eggs and swap it for offcuts of fabric, tied at the top with jute string or baker’s twine.  Add labels to let the family know whose is whose – just make sure you choose eggs of similar sizes so there’s no arguing!

Sweet centerpiece

Pastel colors are yummy and so are mini chocolate eggs and the two make a perfect combination in this sweet Easter centerpiece.  Start with a wide mouth vase and place a smaller drinking glass in the centre, next gently stack mini eggs between the glass and jar and fill the glass with water. Cut the stems of your favorite flowers to the desired length and arrange them in the glass.  Perfect!
