Get inspired for a stylish Easter celebration

If it’s your turn to host family or friends for lunch this Easter, perhaps you want to bring some class and sophistication to your table styling?

It’s time to ditch the gaudy bright colours and the tacky bunnies. Let’s get creative!

Make it instead

There are so many great ways to style eggs as a central theme for your table setting. You can dye them in metallic tints, dip them in varying shades of the one colour, or sprinkle them with glitter.

Or retain their natural hue and use them as name settings or wrap them in cloth. Layer them in vases or across the centre of the table.

Your Easter egg hunt could also draw guests – young and old – into the garden. Get some moulds and create your own Easter chocolate selection. Then scatter your homemade treats amongst the flower beds for all to discover.

Table time

Your table may not be the right size for your number of guests. Consider hiring extra tablesfor both the adults and the kids!

Set the tables up outside if the weather holds out, then drape them in crisp white tablecloths.

Setting the table is easy if you’re prepared. Be sure to hire plenty of glasses, crockery and cutlery, and plan your accessories early.

You can bring in our Tolix chair in yellow, black and white, or if space is tight, try our padded folding chair in white.


Who knew napkins could make such a statement? Scroll Pinterest for oodles of options when it comes to napkin folding. Think sophisticated bunny ears or a soft serviette cushion for a decorated egg.

Keep your colours neutral and soft for an effective display.

A bit of glam

Your Easter table must have flowers. You’ll need an impressive central setting along with some extra twigs or greenery for beyond the table.

For a gorgeous touch of glam, hire our Chiavari chairs in gold.
