It’s been a long time coming but spring has finally arrived and just in time for Easter! Now could be a great time to start planning your Easter celebrations and what better way to do it than with a beautifully decorated table to enjoy and celebrate with family and friends.
In this blog, I’ll discuss how to decorate your table using natural and sustainable materials and which spring scents will help you master the art of "tablescaping" to create a stunning Easter table.
What is Tablescape?
Tablescaping is the art of designing and decorating a table with elements such as linens, dishes, centre pieces, and lighting to create a particular mood or theme. It involves careful consideration of colours, textures, and shapes to create a harmonious and visually appealing look. Tablescaping is an excellent way to add personality and character to your table, and it can be used for any occasion, including Easter.
Sustainable and Natural Products for Easter Table
You can get some great ideas from Pinterest when decorating your Easter table. Think carefully about the sustainability factor of each item and consider using natural products and materials and making your own. Here are some ideas:
Linens: Use tablecloths, napkins, and placemats made from natural fibers such as cotton, linen, or hemp. These materials are eco-friendly and will add texture and depth to your table.
Centre pieces: Use fresh flowers or potted plants as a centre piece. You can also create a centre piece using natural elements such as twigs, branches, or stones.
Chocolate Bunnies: Instead of using plastic Easter bunnies or eggs, opt for chocolate bunnies. Include them as part of your dessert or give them to guests to take home afterwards – or just east them yourself when your guests have gone!
Decorating Your Easter Table
Now that you have an idea of the sustainable and natural products you can use for your Easter table, it's time to put everything together. Here are some tips on how to decorate your Easter table using these elements:
Colour Scheme: Choose a colour scheme that reflects the spring season. Pastel colours such as pink, blue, green, and yellow are excellent options.
Tablecloth and Placemats: Use a tablecloth and placemats made from natural fibers. Opt for light or neutral colours to create a fresh and clean look.
Centre piece: Create a centre piece using fresh flowers or potted plants. You can also use a natural element such as a basket of eggs or a vase of twigs.
Table Settings: Use white or light coloured plates and bowls, and add some texture with wooden or bamboo utensils.
Lighting: Place soy wax candles with natural relaxing or uplifting scents such as lavender or citrus around your dining area. You can also use string lights or lanterns to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Decorating your Easter table with natural, sustainable products and materials is an excellent way to celebrate the spring season while also minimizing waste. By using these elements and the art of tablescaping, you can create a stunning table that reflects your personality and adds character to your dining area. So, this Easter, get creative and have fun decorating your table!
