At Easter time Spring is in full bloom and everyone is excited to enjoy the treats brought by the Easter Bunny! It’s a gorgeous time of the year to invite friends and family to gather round and enjoy a special meal so why not do it in style with some special touches to your table. We have selected and styled our favourite tableware for the occasion to give us all a little Easter dining inspiration.
This time of year is all about enjoying Spring and the sunshine that comes with it. Inspired by sunshine yellows, spring chicks and garden freshness our first look brings together a classic Easter colour palette with a modern twist!
When dining in style we all like to change it up from having just one course to perhaps two or even three (depending on whether you have help in the kitchen!) so consider what styles of tableware would compliment the overall look. They don’t always have to be part of a set and adding different colours and textures is a great way to liven up your table top. After all the prep and cooking when the time comes to plate up, our Tola Tableware Collection is a beautiful, vibrant addition to any dining experience. Mix and match bright yellow with lime green and bring the look together with the relaxed, summery Rattan Style Round Charger.
To add some extra touches to your table don’t forget the napkins. They can be both practical and stylish! We just love our Citrus Pop collection, available in three colours – lime, lemon and grapefruit but we just couldn’t see past the bright lemon for the Spring Chic…k look! If you are looking to add some colour but want to try something a little different, add a little greenery instead of a runner. Drape it along the table in the same way to bring a little of the outdoors in for a fresh twist to your tableware dining style. For a maintenance free look that you can use again browse our beautiful faux floral blooms in store.
When it comes to our Pastel Perfection look think meadows of lavender and rolling seascapes! This look combines the subtle elegance of our light blue Stria Dinnerware Collection and a touch of lilac with our Heather Orbit Swirl Placemats.
A focal point on your table is a lovely way to add some style. A vase of fresh flowers or if you are out and about the spring hedgerow can provide that fresh colour to enhance your table! For evening dining add candles for ambience. A runner like our Madrass Stripe featured here is also a classic way to style your table top. For a contemporary look why not forget the table cloth and simply add the runner. This is also a great way to quickly style your outdoor dining set. Here’s hoping for the weather!
Of course the food is the real star of the show! The right serve ware will compliment the overall style of your table and give that special touch for the occasion that’s in it. A glass desert dish is a lovely way to showcase the delights in store for your guests. A little tip: if you are serving ice cream as a desert, pop the desert ware into the fridge to chill them before adding the ice cream to make it last a little longer.
Most importantly relax and enjoy the weekend with friends and family.
Happy Easter from us all at Meadows & Byrne
