Decorations for your Easter table

Spring is when nature comes back to life, so celebrate it by decorating your table with elements from nature. Flowers, feathers, wood, and herbs could be the main accents that complement the delicious food you’re serving and create an uplifting mood.

For the flowers, nothing says “spring” more than the classic primroses, paperwhites, and tulips. Pair them with herbs, grass and wood branches from the garden, and you’ll make a perfect bouquet that adds color and life to your table. While some use traditional vases, others stash their flowers in mason jars, but if you want to go the extra mile, use painted hollowed out eggshells in an egg crate and turn them into tiny vases.

For the centerpiece, you could use a painted egg nest, and decorate it with feathers, herbs - anything your imagination comes up with. If you are a practical person and want a centerpiece that can be used more than once, paint wooden eggs - you’ll have a decoration you can use every year without any extra effort. 

Want functional decorations? You still have time to grow wheatgrass in tiny pots to place on your Easter table. Fruit, baby carrots, and salads can serve both as decorations and a healthy snack, chocolate eggs are sure to please both the children and the grown-ups, and while egg shaped candles look charming in daylight, they create a cozy atmosphere during dinner time. If you have time to create something truly special, check out Easter decoration ideas on Pinterest - you’ll definitely find inspiration and unique solutions.
