Get creative with your table settings and add fun spring touches to your home

For many, Easter marks the official return of spring. We’ll be celebrating the new season by creating dreamy tablescapes, investing in key pieces and getting crafty with the kids.

Quite a few of us are lucky enough to have four days off in a row, making Easter a great excuse to get together with family and friends. Up the ante this year with small touches to make everyone smile, such as decorations on their breakfast plates or egg cups and mugs that you’ve hand-picked for each person.

Whether you’re treating each meal as a mini styling moment or preparing to have a casual sharing-style arrangement, take classic essentials – such as a white linen tablecloth – and add themed tableware and Easter accessories.

Easter decorating ideas

Keep the kids sweet

Mealtimes always run more smoothly when younger guests are entertained. Add simple touches to make their table look extra special, from making bunny ears from your napkins, to personalising each place setting with an Easter gift and a scattering of mini chocolate eggs.

Easter baking

Afternoon tea at home

Treat the household to a few Easter bakes – whether it’s cookies or traybakes, iced buns or muffins, there are plenty of ideas at Waitrose. But make it more than just a baking session: set up a special afternoon tea on Easter Saturday. Pop on your best spring outfits and serve your sweet treats on cake stands.
