Easter’s nearly here, and it couldn’t be a better time to spend some quality time in with the family and enjoy a spot of Easter lunch. That’s why we challenged homeware queen Katie from @comedowntothewoods to hunt down her perfect Easter lunch set up, in just five minutes. Watch the video to see how she got on.Shop dining
Make it sentimental.
There’s no doubt about it, Easter is going to be a little tougher this year. It's a time for the family to come together and it’ll be hard not to see our loved ones. So, now is the time to mix the old with the new and bring out pieces that mean something to you. For me, that will be my nana's trifle bowl but it could be anything that connects you to those who might be missing.
Make it colourful.
There is no better time to go wild with colour than Easter. It's all about bright, fresh colours, and colours that will make you smile. I've loved experimenting with colourful dinnerware but you can add colour anywhere. Think blooms, napkins and colourful eggs. Colours will work beautifully, especially if they are grounded on a neutral coloured table or tablecloth.
Make it fun.
Chocolate eggs, fluffy chicks or bunny ears. Add a little bit of lighthearted fun to your table. It'll make everyone smile, kids and grown ups alike.
Make it special.
A centrepiece is a great way of making your table feel really special. For me, it will be flowers and greenery found in the garden arranged in small vases. Other ideas include glass jars full of eggs, daffodils or Easter trees.
Make it crafty.
Get everyone involved by creating something extra special this Easter. Painting eggs is the simplest idea and there are many other tutorials online. Try making bunny ears out of napkins or origami rabbit baskets. There are loads of ideas on Pinterest and we also have the added advantage of counting it as art for home schooling!
