Inspiration: Easter





A cheerful palette and ideas for Easter décor.

There is a certain sweetness that so often encompasses the celebration of Easter. Perhaps it is thanks to Spring, and a host of lovely colors and textures that wonderfully reflect this lighter and brighter time of year. Undeniably, there will be freshly cut flowers placed in pretty vases and glasses to admire, tempting sweets to savour, and a celebration over delicious food with family. I think back to childhood and the traditions that I, only more recently, have learned to appreciate and treasure; of waking up Easter morning to an egg hunt, hands filled with a darling basket full of chocolates... happily heading off to church in my Spring dress for Easter service, and a full and delicious dinner with families. Do you fun plans for this weekend?

  4. Beautiful Easter tables here...we do a family lunch on Sunday and so I will be stealing some of these ideas. Easter does lend itself to such lovely table decorations don't you think? The Easter egg hunt traditionally comes after - lots of children this year - family and extended family. Looking forward to it....and the chocolate high afterwards! Lou x

  8. I love the Roman Shades in that third photograph! I secretely long for the days when my mum would make my Easter dress and it would match the one she would wear. Easter is such a light-hearted time of year.

  19. This post and the approaching of Easter brings back such happy memories, cherished moments with the loved ones and wonderful traditions (I remember how as a child one of my favourite parts was my new dress, skirt or outfit I always received on Easter). This is a very special time of year and I'm looking forward to some quality time with family and friends. Happy Easter, dear Sarah! Ada

  21. Lovely tables, loving the colors! Too bad the weather isn't always great and not everyone can have an Easter fest outside. The sunlight makes it all even more beautiful.
