Coinciding with the start of spring, Easter is always a playful and colourful season. Whether you opt for playful pastels or a punchy pop of yellow on your Easter table setting a good dose of colour will never fail to delight. If you are not ready to invest in a completely new set of porcelain you can always bring in colour with smaller details such as candles, napkins or these delicately coloured glasses from Holmegaard.

The centrepiece is a must on any table setting and naturally Easter is no different. A simple Vases with a brightly coloured bouquet may suffice but if you want to create something a bit more special for this occasion you might think about building your own traditional Easter tree.

You can learn how to create your own Easter tree here.

There are so many ways to bring in moments of joy to your Easter table setting and a napkin fold is no different. You can use them to bring in additional pops of colour and even fold your napkins into cute little bunny ears for an extra Easter detail for the table.

To create your bunny ears:

  • Fold your napkin into triangle and then roll it into a tube-like shape.
  • Wrap your napkin around an egg and secure the napkin at the top of egg so it resembles bunny ears.
Your Easter table setting ideas should always include a napkin fold like the one you see here in tones of yellow.

Concertina your napkin into a fan shape and add a flower as an additional detail.

Great Easter table setting ideas always include a lovely napkin fold like you see here with a simple scrunch and flower wrapped around a Scandi Living linen napkin in pink.
