How to: create a beautiful Easter table

So it’s been a bit busy in the last month, with new opportunities and styling another short film. I don’t know about you, there is so much Easter decoration ideas out there online and in high street stores. It’s a bit like Christmas; I think it’s getting as big as Christmas too. This table decoration has been floating in my head for a while now and perfect for that Easter Sunday lunch. I liked the idea of creating a beautiful Easter table, with more of a nod to Easter and spring.

So hide that bunny and as always a little bit of stripe has sneaked in too. I’ve also chosen a ribbon colour which links to the tablecloth colour, just so it feels connected.

What you’ll need

  • Striped fabric
  • White napkins – 40cm x 40cm
  • Small head daffodils
  • A4 white card
  • Easter Egg box
  • 1 meter of aqua ribbon
  • Strong glue or a hot glue gun

Step 1
Beautiful Easter Table step 1
I was buying an easter egg and what about reusing the cardboard that comes with it. So you the perfect Easter egg shape, which I used as the basis of a template.

Step 2

Take your template and a get a piece A4 white card. Cut the card in half and place the Easter egg template on top of the card. The card should be in landscape way, so you have extra card at either side of the template. You could also use your napkin to get a sense of space.

Step 3

Once you have drawn inside the template and I also used the edge to draw a line so it looks just like the template. I then measured three centimetres at each side, this will help you with the card sitting above the napkin.

Step 4

Where you draw a line at the edge of the template, score on the other side lightly and fold both edges down. This will help prop up the card to sit over your napkin.

Turn the card over and place a piece of ribbon at the bottom, glue the ribbon on to the card. This will help with the next step.

Step 7

Make a bow the same width as the card. Glue the bow to the ribbon strip, this will help the bow keep in place.

Step 8

Arrange on your plate and I bought some mini daffodils and put a rubber band near the top to secure them and cut the stems to the point of where they don’t show out of the card. Pull some of the daffodils out of the edges, so it looks pretty. Lunch is served!
