A casual-chic way to decorate for Easter

A lesson in celebrating Easter the simple yet stylish way — save the bunny motifs for the kids.

Easter entertaining brings with it the gentle colours and fresh flavours of spring that, time after time, we can’t wait to embrace. Here, three modern ways to make your tablescape blush.

1. Pair pale pink dishware with rosy blooms.

The serenity of a pale pink tablescape glows softly in an otherwise neutral space. Set the scene using a few ceramics, dyed feathers and branches of magnolia, almond or cherry blossom. And don’t forget the Easter eggs! For a sophisticated take, skip the child-friendly stickers and primary colours and go for a more modern dip-dyed look as we’ve done here.

2. Add modern Easter touches for a festive yet cool look that's not too sweet.

Easter and springtime are inextricably linked, considered a period of hope and nature’s renewal since ancient times. We’re more than ready to welcome the promise of these propitious sentiments – and some warmer temperatures, please! – into our homes this month with a fresh flurry of flora, fauna and pastel palettes. From elegant eggs and luxe linens to savoury tarts and sweet treats, we’ve got a celebration worthy of this inspiring and bright-eyed time of year.

3. Opt for DIY dusty pink linens.

Layers of linens in this dusky shade of blush – dyed with avocado pits! – are a beautiful spring accent all on their own. As a complement to the rest of your Easter entertaining scheme, though, they bring a natural texture to the scene. Here, they mingle with rustic wood tones to bridge the gap between casual and formal.
