Flower power

Go big on flowers for your Easter table. Group vases of different sizes, shapes and heights and fill them with your favourite seasonal flowers, sticking to a colour palette of just a few key hues to unify the look. Make sure you cut the stems relatively short so the arrangement sits low enough for everyone around the table to enjoy conversation.

Neutrals en masse

When it comes to neutral shades for tablescapes, layer en masse. Mix varying tones of whites and beiges through ceramic dinnerware, linen napery and organically-shaped vases. Including varying textures, from dimpled satin finishes to rough textural linen, will make your tablescape feel layered and rich without being too much.

Clashing colours

Inject joy by fearlessly clashing daring colour combinations. For foolproof colour contrasts, pair similarly warm colours, such as pink with red, or similarly cool colours, such as blue with green. The trick is to avoid pattern and to focus on block tones through solidly coloured tablecloths, dinnerware and glassware

Tonal layering

For something unique, create an ombre effect layering dark to light shades of the same colour. Using the tablecloth as the darkest shade, graduate to lighter shades through dinner plates, side plates and napkins. Select on-trend colours such as mustard and lemon for a fresh look, or classic schemes such as powder blue and deep navy for something more soothing.

Sculptural candles

Add a sense of playfulness using sculpted candles in feminine forms. When it comes to styling this look, variance is key. Collect slightly different shapes and scatter varying heights along the middle of your table to create interest.

Experiment with pattern

As tablecloths are the largest surface area of your tablescape, choose repetitive patterns such as gingham or checks for big impact and complete the look with napkins featuring contrasting patterns in floral, abstract or striped motifs. Select plain dinnerware to ground the tablescape with points of visual rest.

Fruit collections

Create an unexpected playful pop using fruit. To harness the power of repetition, be selective and limit to just one type of fruit. Scatter along your table, stack in bowls and fill glass vases to create a simple but high impact statement. Not only will your tablescape look amazing, it will smell divine too!

Shapeful glassware

An easy and last-minute way to decorate your tablescape is to simply mix and match different glassware. Art deco themes featuring ribbed designs and angular bases add subtle interest, while providing a point of difference. Best of all, throw away any rules about which beverage goes in which glass - cocktail glasses can be used for water and wine can be poured into tumblers.
