An Easter gathering to remember

By April 6, 2022INSPIRATION

Style your table for an Easter gathering to remember.

Interior stylist Fiona Gould shares her tips for styling an extra special table this Easter.


Easter is such a pretty time for styling – soft pastels, adorable bunnies, chocolate treats and spring-like florals – it’s a time to embrace the cuteness and have fun with decorating.

When styling any table for an event I like to start with a quality linen tablecloth, it just adds a special sense of occasion to the space and makes the setting feel lush. I love the subtle trim detail on this tablecloth from Freedom Furniture.

Next is to decide on your colour palette. I often let this be driven by some key pieces I’ve found. I adore these purple napkins and the ochre detail on these dinner plates found at Freedom Furniture, so this is what inspired my look. You’ll see I haven’t repeated these colours many times throughout the table, and by keeping the majority of my pieces more neutral, the end result looks really fresh, elegant and pretty with just a few pops of hero colour. The rattan material on these Belmont dining chairs from Oz Design furniture also help to bring warmth and elegant detail to the look.

You really don’t need to go over the top on the Easter theme too. I’ve opted for just a few sweet little white bunnies and some fun bon bons from Provincial Home Living.

I love to mix and match plates and servingware styles, it always makes a table feel more interesting. Try a more modern dinner plate paired with some classic serving platters and glassware for example. These little serving cloches from Provincial Home Living add such a special touch, and the detailing on this wavy bowl from Oz Design Furniture adds some cute character to the table.

For the centrepiece, if you don’t need lots of room for large share platters, make this central area a moment to go big. I start with a hero vase and use this to display some oversized branches. Soft tones or natural foliage picked from your yard can add lovely freshness to the look. Compliment your hero vase with other objects at varying heights and mix up textures and materials. I like the contrast of the matte finish vase from Adairs with the amber glass vase from Provincial Home Living.

If you need room for more share platters, I like to style the table with a few scattered smaller vases with smaller stems of foliage, and a couple of beautiful candle sticks down the centre of the table.

Cutlery is one of those little details that can really elevate a table setting – I love either a classic silverware look, or a more minimalist look like this beautiful set with black detailing from Robin’s Kitchen. These enamel serving spoons from Freedom Furniture also add to that balance of modern meets classic.

Displaying your napkins in a simple knot like this is a fun alternative to your traditional napkin ring and I like the texture it adds to the setting. An elegant rectangle folded under your Easter decoration, or sat under your plate, would also work really well. Or go for a quirky Easter bunny ear fold, there’s lots of fun tutorials in google for interesting Easter napkin folding!

However you style your Easter table this year, I hope it brings you and your loved ones lots of joy and happy memories.
