It's like almost yesterday the Christmas happened and only in a minute we will be celebrating the Easter holiday! This Easter spirit is coming closer, closer in the weather. And because it is a spring time it won't be so hard to decorate the house and make beautiful table setting.
The spirit and nice decorations are very important in celebrating Easter. They make our mood better, they live the house, make food more delightful. And one of the most important place in this celebration is of course dining room with its centered dining table. We spent most of our holiday Easter break on sitting at home and around the table – let's make it look beautiful!
To do that you should be creative and use your imagination! As it was said, at the spring time it will be quite easy to make a beautiful table and home decorations. You just have to use some inspiration from nature and not forget to put an Easter touch in it.
Very helpful in doing that will be of course flowers. One or two pots may stand in the centre of the table. As good as pots with hyacinths or tulips might be vase with catkins and some handmade Easter eggs hanging on it. It's good to decide on one type of plants to make the table look more elegant. But in the whole house we can put different flowers. For example different in children's room and different in dining room to live up the house.
Flowers are also used to make other decorations. One of them are seasonal door wreaths that are welcoming visitors over the Easter holidays. The most beautiful one are hand-crafted with fresh foliage, herbs and moss, decorated with Easter nests, eggs and ribbons. You can do them on your own or buy them this time of the year in almost every shop with home accessories.
Setting the table on Easter holiday doesn't differ so much from setting it for Christmas. The tablecloth and napkins should be of course clean and elegant. Both would probably look better if they had the same pattern – flowers, eggs or bunnies on it. Sometimes putting the tablecloth in one spring solid color (green, yellow) will also make a nice look. For example a green napkins with brown bunnies and a yellow tablecloth will make a great match!
In such occasions it is important not to put favourite, best plates and tablecloths we got. While having different kinds of dishes on the table and hosting many people there is slightly chance that some food might land on the table not on the plate, and some plates may end up on the floor. Thinking about that might make you nervous and the holiday atmosphere will be ruined for you.
Some of Easter decorations may also be putted on the chairs as embroidered napkins hanging at the back of the chair or colorful ribbons on it. You can use chairs to make a sweet surprise for your guests and family. Just put a big chocolate bunnies at all dining chairs and you will see how the grown ups are happy like a child. Why big bunnies? Because the small ones might not be visible to your friends and family, and someone might sit on them.
Don't forget about the look of smaller tables at your home. Bedside table or coffee tables may also look nice if you change them the same way as dining table. Putting a white linen napkin and the vase with spring flours (tulips, pansies, daises etc.) will totally change the look of a living room and bedroom.. If you also put some pots with grass on the window-sills and hang some Easter eggs in few places when possible you will have the whole house done!
When everything is done there is nothing left to celebrate the Easter holidays with all the family and friends gathered around one table – in pleasant moods and beautiful surrounding.
Tasty eggs and happy Easter holidays!
