Easter table

In a funny sort of way, I think me and my sisters used to get more excited about Easter than we did about Christmas. We would always go to my grandparents’ house in Devon and the anticipation for our Easter breakfast was feverish. We would wait on the stairs until we were finally allowed into the breakfast room (surely only grandparents have breakfast rooms?!) to see the Easter table for the first time, which my mum, Aunty and Grandma would have prepared the night before. My Grandmother always kept the homemade Easter decorations that we made each year and these would adorn the table proudly as well as the most ridiculous number of eggs you have ever seen. We would have our own place setting and it was only then that we could figure out just how many eggs we had been given (I mean, we’re talking one from our parents, each sister, grandparents, Aunty, school friends – there were a lot!). We would then gorge on chocolate and hot cross buns and begin the competition to see which sister could make her eggs last the longest (Juliette always won that competition). Just such lovely memories.

When Furniture Choice asked me to style up one of their dining tables for Easter, I didn’t need to be asked twice and it brought back all those lovely memories (minus the mountain of eggs!). I had £150 to spend and I totally splashed out on some beautiful ceramics from Tea and Kate, a House Doctor jug from Royal Design and some gorgeous flowers. All the pretty pastels for a lovely Easter breakfast…

I bought white eggs, knocked off the tops, emptied out the eggs and rinsed the shells. I then filled them up with water and made sweet little vases for the table.

Furniture Choice gave me their Lombard dining table to style up. Loving the shape of the legs.

Im obsessed with pink and gorgeous ceramics at the moment so that was the theme for my table setting. I bough the Tilda hand thrown teapot and Tilda hand thrown tea mugs from Tea and Kate.

I made a runner for the table from an old bed sheet. I didn’t iron it so it looks more like linen 😉

I have been wanting this hand thrown teapot and cups for so long and this was the perfect opportunity to finally buy them from Tea and Kate.

A few little Easter-themed treats from Thornback and Peel for the table. Love this Rabbit and Cabbage print notebook and there are all sorts of beautifully printed napkins, cushions, placemats and cards over there to check out for your Easter table.

That cloche full of hot cross buns did not last a second after I had finished photographing this post!
