An Easter Brunch

It’s that time of year again when hot cross buns and chocolate eggs make an appearance on every family table, so whether you are hosting a lively brunch or planning a more formal lunch or dinner, we have you covered. In preparation for the closely approaching season, we have rounded up a few of our favourite pieces to help create a wonderful Easter table.

The Easter season is a fabulous time of year for outdoor entertaining – the beautiful colours and cooler temperatures of Autumn make it perfect for alfresco dining. I love to embrace the relaxed atmosphere of the season by hosting a long brunch; it is generally a lot less formal and, with the right company, can sometimes extend until late afternoon!

Traditionally, Easter tables embrace pastel hues and fresh floral prints, which I love to layer with patterns and natural textures for a more modern take on the classic Easter aesthetic. I find natural fibres complement outdoor dining; it blends effortlessly with almost any table setting.

I love a table that is formal in appearance yet without the air of being perfectly designed. I always begin with a beautiful piece of fabric to set the palette and act as a backdrop, ensuring that each element works with my chosen fabric. Once I have selected my table covering, I add natural textures, like our raffia placemats and bamboo cutlery, creating a more formal look.

Instead of the traditionally used egg decor, I prefer to use flowers and greenery, which is a great way to add a touch of colour and diversify from the all-pastel colour palette associated with Easter.

When you allow yourself enough time to play with the process and compose all your elements, creating a seasonally themed table can be a creatively fulfilling and enjoyable experience.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter
