Whether you’re making a full on meal or just prepping a lighter fare to share with the fam, we’ve rounded up five simple ideas to ensure your table decor stands out this Easter.
Daisy napkin rings
Created from grosgrain ribbon and vintage or new buttons, these adorable DIY napkin rings will brighten up any table.
To make: For each napkin ring, cut 1.5 centimetre-wide white grosgrain ribbon into five 7-centimetre-long pieces; round ends. Glue one piece on top of the next, offsetting as you go to create a flower shape. Glue a yellow button in the middle and a length of green twine to back for tying.
Dyed Easter eggs
Unleash the kid in you by creating fun dyed Easter eggs, then use them as decorations for your table. Just remember: go natural! Use food- or plant-based colouring to craft beautifully subdued shades.
To make: Simmer beets, blueberries, or other natural ingredients in a cup of water with a dash of vinegar to create the colors. Leave eggs soaking in the natural egg dye in the refrigerator overnight for the richest color; soak just a few minutes for subtler results.
Go rustic chic by turning your mason jars into simple vases. Better yet, place them in a metal milk carrier for an easy, beautiful centrepiece.
To make: Place small bunches of fresh flowers into each mason jar.
One more proof that Easter eggs have limitless decorating opportunities, this sweet garland can be placed anywhere in your kitchen or living room, for an immediate cheerful effect.
To make: Hot-glue a ribbon around the outside of clean egg shells with the tops cracked off. Place a wet piece of floral foam inside each and push in a few short stems. Hang a handful along a string in front of a blank wall or window.
Bring spring to the table by using natural elements like a moss table runner, mini egg nests, fresh flowers and twine.
