In a few days, you’ll be sitting down to a fabulous Easter brunch, or perhaps you’ll be hosting a family dinner after the egg hunt outside. How does your table look? If you're feeling at a loss and want to try something different from the standard Easter bouquet, we have several easy and beautiful ideas that you can try this year!
One quick and unique table centerpiece idea is to find several small baskets or, if you’re lucky, a few “nests. Gather up your decorated eggs and fill each basket or nest with dyed Easter eggs. A good decorating tip: if you fill each nest with the same color, it will really pack an elegant punch!
Next, scatter votives or candlesticks throughout (in coordinating colors if you have them), and you have a simple and elegant Easter table! Want to take it one step further? Tie the napkins with raffia in coordinating colors.
Another modern but stylish idea is to take a pair of clear glass hurricanes and fill with a few inches of water in the bottom. Next, add pure white hard-boiled eggs.
You can then accessorize with your favorite white blooms using the eggs below to secure the stems. Even in the most sophisticated home this modern arrangement will look amazing!
Our last idea is just plain simple and really easy. Use your dessert as your centerpiece! If you are having cake, why not frost it in pure white and decorate it with edible flowers (be sure they are edible, and not from a nursery where they might have been sprayed with something less than safe). Place the cake on a snazzy, footed cake plate, toss a few petals on the table surrounding the cake plate, and your table will look luscious!
Enjoy trying something new this Easter!
