How to Create a Striking Easter Table
I love any excuse to get my favourite china, glassware and linens out and Easter is a great opportunity to go to town with the table settings and decorations. A simple way to create a pretty centrepiece is to use a footed bowl (to give some height) planted with flowering Spring bulbs like narcissus and grape hyacinths. Then, if you really want to go for it, you can add some Easter themed extras. Little nests filled with sweet, speckled mini eggs are pretty irresistible to all ages.
When it comes to china, I’m loving all things vegetable inspired at the moment. Whether its Dodie Thayer’s vintage lettuce ware (or her reissued collection for Tory Birch), white cabbage leaf bowls from Daylesford, or antique Wedgwood majolica with its glossy green glaze, it’s perfect for a Spring celebration. The joy of this look is that it can be a bit mis-matched; old with new, different patterns and shapes all mixed together, it all just works.
