Spring is here and with it the Easter holiday season has arrived. So have fun entertaining your family and friends with an Easter-themed meal and decorate your home and garden with items to show you’ve really caught the springtime spirit. The obvious things that come to mind for Easter decor are bunnies, eggs and flowers, and you can rest assured that we have no shortage of fun objects and designs for you to take advantage of at Pottery Barn.
Prepare your table in readiness for a sumptuous feast with playful bunny dinnerware, floral accents and fresh spring designs. Animal lovers and kids alike love plates and mugs with bunny designs on them, so set their places with salad plates and dinner plates, complemented with a matching napkin. The theme is complete when you serve their food on a large platter beautifully designed with matching bunny drawings. Serve nuts and crisps in bunny shaped baskets and add colorful chocolate eggs to a contrasting white porcelain bunny dish. For a more formal meal setting, crisp white tableware hints at the fresh spring climate. In addition to the standard bowls, cups and dishes, a condiment serving bowl and deviled egg platter both add to the theme. Why not add antique bunny salt and pepper shakers to the mix for a fun touch?
Before laying out your dinnerware, decorate the table with a tablecloth or runner. A simple check tablecloth does the trick or a bold colored knotted runner. A plain white eyelet table throw or runner adds a stylish touch. Be sure to add matching napkins for a finished look. Galvanized metal accessories are associated with outdoor living so get ready for your garden party using galvanized accents. Use a rectangular tray to carry items to and from the table. A condiment and tray set is an original way to hold the cutlery. Stack treats on a galvanized metal tiered stand and let your guests help themselves to drinks from labeled drink dispenser stands.
Your table is set; now for the rest of your home. Welcome guests with a Happy Easter or cotton-tail bunny banner. Hang a sweet smelling wreath on your front door and place bunches of fragrant flowers in vases in the rooms throughout your home. Baskets are traditionally associated with Easter, and these are used in numerous ways. Give kids wicker baskets to fill on an Easter egg hunt or pack it full of treats for them to take home with them. The collapsible handle means it can be stored away easily in readiness for the next Easter party. A natural woven twig basket with rustic linen lining has a traditional appeal and can be filled with decorative eggs, dried flowers or colorful linens. A flat weave basket adds vintage charm to the setting. Use the baskets individually or group them together in varying sizes for effect.
Got some glass bowls or jars in your cupboards? Then get them out and fill them with decorative eggs. From foil coverings to natural speckled and sparkling glitter, these colorful eggs brighten up any space. Light some candles nearby and watch them glisten as the flickering flames catch the colors. Fun candle holder designs include a leaping bunny, bunny pillar and beaded egg votive holder. Hang lit beaded eggs at different heights for a dramatic effect.
Mark the start of the Easter egg hunt with garden stakes depicting an arrow and two eager bunnies ready to lead the way. Place endearing handwoven twig bunnies inside your home and dotted around your patio or garden. These charming ornaments add the final touch to your Easter celebration. When all your guests have gone home, sink into comfortable cushions decorated with bunny designs and enjoy a well-deserved cup of coffee or tea from a colorful floral mug.
