Porcelain like Nordic Sea from Broste Copenhagen, seen here, gives a lovely rustic touch to your Easter table setting.
For a more minimalistic Easter table setting you can combine rustic porcelain with stainless steel cutlery, forget the tablecloth and add a linen napkin under the plate.
The absence of a more traditional Easter tablecloth allows this rustic Easter table setting to shine. Here a neutral tablecloth in rustic linen allows the darker blue tones of the porcelain from Broste Copenhagen to pop. If you are looking to create an Easter table setting with rustic elements, then simply combining rustic porcelain with a bare table or a neutral, linen tablecloth is the way to go. However, if you want your Easter table setting to really pop combine your rustic porcelain with elegant brass coloured cutlery for the perfect shabby / chic contrast (silver cutlery will give the table setting a more relaxed feeling).
Easter is a playful holiday, so let your Easter table setting reflect that. Fold the cloth napkins into a pair of rabbit ears for a wonderfully playful atmosphere on your Easter table. You can fold the napkins in a moment with things you have at home, all you need are eggs, linen napkins and string.
1. Fold the linen napkin in the middle so you get a triangle. Keep the tip facing down and pointing towards you.
2. Roll the ends upwards towards the long side so that the linen napkin becomes a long “sausage”
3. Bend the roll in the middle and tie the ends together with a piece of string so you get to the rabbit ears.
4. Place the napkin on the plate and put an egg in the middle – and you’re done! If you want, you could also use the egg as a place card and write the name directly on the egg or why not draw a small rabbit face there?
Replace the traditional Easter decorations and provide each plate with a creative napkin fold - here in the form of a pair of rabbit ears.
Another lovely little gesture that gives your Easter table setting an extra playful edge is to set the table with mini daffodils in egg cups. The egg cup from Nordic Sea is the perfect size and shape for a daffodil bulb.
What would Easter be without the spring flowers? By highlighting nature in the form of a colourful tulip bouquet or discreet willow twigs, you can elegantly change the feeling of your Easter table setting. A more colourful bouquet picks up Easter pastels while a collection of twigs collected from the local forest or your garden gives you an Easter table setting in a more rustic and relaxed style.
What is Easter without spring flowers? A tulip bouquet in Easter pastels immediately gives your Easter table a festive feeling!
No Easter table setting would be complete without Easter decorations. Beautiful ornamental eggs, together with real chicken eggs, plain or even dyed can be placed along the table as a symbol of the season - it does not have to be more difficult than that!
Keep the decorations simple - place natural eggs on the table or do something more playful like placing them in the classic Stumpastaken instead of candles.
Eggs and twigs - simple and rustic decorations for the Easter table that are sure to evoke those Easter emotions!
A final tip for your Easter table setting is to play with height and contrasts. Try not to think too symmetrically but mix different heights on the table in terms of glasses, vases or decorations to get the right feeling. Contrasts in the form of colours and shapes are also elements to take advantage of when you want to get a rustic aesthetic that does not feel too “overdone”. By combining different heights and contrasting colours you can create an Easter table setting that feels as free and playful as the season itself.
By using different heights on the table, you can create a dynamic the table setting. Glasses, vases or other objects all help to build on the height.
Combine different materials such as rustic stoneware with elegant details such as a modern thermos for coffee to your dessert!
