Easter table decor – 10 top buys for SS21
1. Napkin rings – take your pick from these two for your Easter table(opens in new tab)
Whether you already have some linen napkins you use frequently and wash, or you will be buying Easter-themed napkins in 2021, you'd better buy some rings to display them on your table in style. You'll find two options below – one of which is Easter-related with carrots as the holder, and the other could be used year-round as they are made from rattan.
John Lewis & Partners Easter Carrot Napkin Rings | £12 for a set of four at John Lewis & Partners (opens in new tab)
These napkin rings are very sweet, with a unique carrot design. They are made from jute with a wire ring for stability. Buy them this year and use them again next Easter, and the one after...
2. A table runner – this one is made from artificial grass to bring the outdoors in
Take things to a whole other level with help from this unique table runner from John Lewis. Boasting a faux grass look, use it to bring the outside this Easter Sunday. Pop it atop your tablecloth and accessorize it with eggs and faux flowers to make a statement. You can use this runner for your serving plates to sit on, to protect your table, too.
3. What about some new placemats? These jute ones are perfect for your Easter table
These neutral placemats would make a lovely addition to an Easter table. They're plain so as not to distract eyes from the rest of your table decor, yet they will be sure to add texture – for Easter or any other occasion.
4. Invest in some new glassware – these gold foiled ones are beautiful(opens in new tab)
This glassware from Anthropologie is an easy buy to bring spring straight to your table. These decorative glasses feature a gold embellished floral design, and they come in different shapes and sizes. From highball glasses to flutes and a stemless glass. Talk about make a statement...
5. You'll need some serving bowls and plates for your Easter table, too...
For your roast potatoes, your salad or whatever else you have for Easter dinner, you will definitely need some new fitting serveware. Stick to the outdoors theme with this collection from John Lewis – it's decorative and unique. That and you can buy matching everything, from side plates to dinner plates and serving platters.
Bordallo Pinheiro Cabbage Serving Bowl | £35 at John Lewis & Partners (opens in new tab)
We love the look of this serving bowl from John Lewis. It's made of earthenware, in Portugal, using traditional ceramic-manufacturing techniques. It's microwave-safe and dishwasher-safe, too.
6. Buy a new jug for your Easter table of dreams and serve water (or wine) in style(opens in new tab)
This lovely jug featured braiding at the bottom to make it easier to grip – and stylish to display on your table. Use it for water or wine, indoors or out. A simple addition that can make a huge difference. It's much better than having a bottle of water, or wine, on the table, that's for sure...
7. Invest in a new tablecloth – this white linen one is perfect(opens in new tab)
Go all out on splurge on a lovely new tablecloth – The White Company's offerings are high-quality and they'll last for years to come. Opting for a white tablecloth means you can go fancier on your table decor, without looking too much. Also, we know that a white tablecloth can make any room look lighter with ease, too. You could even use it in the garden, too.
White Cotton Tablecloth | £45 at The White Company (opens in new tab)
This tablecloth is made from high-quality pure cotton and it measures 140cm wide by 230cm in length. It's also machine washable, and there are matching linen napkins available to buy, too.
8. Buy some Easter-themed napkins – these ones from H&M are lovely (and subtle)
We try to stray away from anything that screams Easter and is brightly coloured, so when we spotted these napkins we were pleasantly surprised. They are from H&M home and they come in a pack of 20 and they feature a print motif of a pastel blue and yellow wreath, and read the words 'Happy Easter'.
9. What about some pastel-coloured eggs to decorate your table with?(opens in new tab)
These Easter eggs aren't the ones you'd find on a hunt in the garden, they are more the type that you display on a table or mantlepiece. Or, on your Easter tree since they come with string for hanging. We think they'd look best either placed on plates or sprinkled over a table, and you can reuse them every year.
Set of 12 Mini Easter Egg Decorations | £5 at Anthropologie (opens in new tab)
Each pack includes 12 decorative eggs that are made of plastic and painted in pastel colours and speckled to look life-like. They come with hanging strings so you can pop them on an Easter tree, but we think they would look lovely dotted around your Easter table, instead.
10. A faux floral garland – for laying in the centre of your table to add colour
If you are going for a simple look on your Easter table this year, then buy a faux garland to pop straight down the middle of your long table. Then, you can accessorise until your heart is content with lovely napkin holders and candles. Style the garland around your glassware for a dramatic effect. You can also use this garland again – for summer parties or decorating your home for spring.
