Easter styling inspiration
Whether it’s an intimate brunch or a Sunday lunch for the whole family, if you’re hosting any kind of party over Easter now is the perfect moment to consider how you will wow your guests. You’ll need a decent menu and an extensive drinks list, of course – but the most effective way to grab your guests’ initial attention is through your décor.
Of all the seasons, spring’s floral offerings are by far the most refreshing. An arrangement of tulips, hyacinths or sunny daffodils can brighten up any room, and flowerboxes can make beautiful, fresh-looking centrepieces for your lunch table.
A throwback to school craft sessions, egg shell painting is a wonderful way to get creative. If you’re keen to avoid the more obvious yellows and pinks, duck egg blue is another key seasonal colour which, when interspersed with crisp white crockery and earthy accessories, can bring a calming appeal to your breakfast table. For colour-precision, paint your eggs in a matching Pantone to your chinaware.
Whether intended for the table or as decorations throughout your home, there are no limits where design is concerned; use nature, fashion or art to inspire your colours and shapes.
You can even give your eggs a grown-up makeover by simply customising them with neutral tones and contemporary designs; a look which will complement any modern living space.
Easter egg hunts
A few individually customised baskets dotted around the room will certainly catch the eye of guests (of any age!) hoping for an Easter egg hunt, and make lovely keepsakes to take home.
Whilst for children the egg hunt is mostly about the chocolate, a few little sweet touches won’t escape their notice, and subtle signs or decorations can even help them navigate their way around your home or garden.
If you’re looking for an unusual favour for your guests, send them home with beautiful spring wreaths. Depending on how creative you are, these can be a DIY project, but to ensure the finest quality and the most interesting designs, enlist the help of a high-end florist who will guarantee you get the pick of the season.
