Spring is undoubtedly one of our favourite seasons, when you’ve got an excuse to incorporate accents of pretty pastels, cute animals and natural materials into your temporary decor scene.
It doesn’t have to be tacky though, right?! Create one of these grown-up creations, and get your little ones involved in creating these fun scenes.
We’ve done the hard work for you by collating our favourite whimsical scapes that can be achieved on a budget with a few clever tips and tricks…
1. Glam & Grown-Up
For an adult dinner party this Spring, choose a more grown-up and sophisticated style. Bring blossom from the outside and use a large glass vase for the centrepeice. For the faux eggs, use a balloon to mould papier mache around – the kids will love it! Don’t forget to leave the rough edges for that hatched-egg effect. Accessorise with gold cutlery for that luxe look.
2. Sweet & Simple
Ditch the pastels and go rustic this Easter by using natural decor only. Showcase a timber tabletop with dusty pink plates and scatter natural Baby’s Breath flowers and foliage. For a sweet accent, add either a faux egg or hollow out a real egg with a simple pinprick! Complete the look by adding bunny ears from brown paper, tie a ribbon and add a cute face!
3. Spring Time Pastels
Have breakfast in style this Spring by adding pops of pretty pinks, greens and lilacs. Tulips and Easter go hand-in-hand, and that’s why they’re a great addition to add height and colour to your tablescape. Add faux moss and ceramic white rabbits to add style. Dried moss from craft stores or even rocket salad is a great way to add that lush look to balance the brights.
4. Rustic Luxe
Create a festive table with nudes and metallics by laying a hessian or cotton table cloth, accompanied with linen napkins. Dip-dye faux eggs in gold leaf by simply pouring a bit of gold leaf onto a paper plate and sponge it as little or as much as want. To welcome your guests, tie a rustic ribbon with some dried flowers around your cutlery with a little Easter message. For that dreamy look, finish with scattered dried hydrangea flowers.
5. Pretty In Pink
Perfect for children’s dinner parties (blue, yellow or green would work just as well for boys), this sweet table setting brings the joys of Easter straight to your table. To create your jolly and bright scene, start with a blank pastel tablecloth, matching painted eggs and for texture, a scattering of feathers. Have fun and create an Easter character for each place setting… we think this cute bunny works a treat just made from card!
