Happy Easter Weekend! | Themed Table Setting

Pastel Coloured Easter Table Setting
I won't lie and marvel at how Easter has snuck up on us all, not when I've had my mind firmly fixed on the chocolate eggs for some weeks now!  I feel as though this holiday is such an underrated one.  It comes with minimal expectations and even less effort.  You're usually knee deep in good food and surrounded by relatives!  But if you rather fancy putting together something special for one meal, I've come up with a few suggestions of how you can do exactly that.  Just... make sure nobody fills up on chocolate eggs while you're busy putting the themed table together!

Why save wreaths for the festive season?  There are some fabulous options around right now, ready and waiting to be picked up last minute and placed either on your front door, or at the centre of your themed table setting.  Alternatively, you could make one yourself!

Psst!  Take a peek at Easter wreaths online at Gisela Graham, Wayfair and Not On The High Street

Regardless of your religious beliefs, the Easter holidays are a wonderful excuse to indulge in hot cross bun after hot cross bun.  If they aren't your thing, try whipping up a batch of spiced Easter cookies - perfect for passing around on Easter Monday!  I wasn't too adventurous with my batch, but you could embellish your biscuits with drizzled chocolate, sprinkled currants or perhaps use bunny and/or easter egg shaped cutters for adorable outcomes!

Psst!  A brilliantly precise recipe to follow can be found online at Waitrose, or opt for a simpler option with BBC Food

Pick a colour scheme and stick to it.  Pastels scream of Easter celebrations, and are easy to push towards country chic!  However, you could also create a more contemporary setting by ditching the gingham and leaning further towards metallics and using only plain crockery

Personally, I'll be inflicting my love of Cimbalo (type of Chordophone) music on my family come Easter Sunday.  It's calming, tranquil and almost angelic - the perfect brunch setting accompaniment to set the scene and offer a slower pace.  Dreaaaamy.  After that, it'll be a case of bingeing on chocolate eggs while watching a ton of feel-good films that come with special occasions.  You know the drill; Harry Potter and/or anything Disney related.  The kind of films that won't have your grandparents running screaming from the living room.

  11. Ahhh Gabrielle, I am SO wishing I'd planned to have the family round today to do something like this! I love making a table look gorgeous but it's so easy to forget about Easter - yet it's the perfect time to get creative! Love the idea of an easter wreath!

  19. It looks to have turned out really lovely. We definitely had the usual hot cross bun, but this time I made them since I wasn't near family. The Easter wreath is beautiful, I think wreaths are always charming accents to tables. xx/Madison

  20. Hope you had a lovely Easter Gabrielle. This definitely crept up on us this year and it all felt so terribly rushed too. Even though the chocolate's been out for sale for many weeks now I didn't get to indulge in any prior to Easter. Which is probably a good thing but still, holidays like these are special and we should really get to experience and enjoy them fully.

  23. I love all the eggs round the candle, so simple but so gorgeous! I'll be honest and say that Easter definitely did sneak up on me, it was so early this year! So I didn't celebrate as much as I usually would!

  27. What a beautiful Easter wreath! I caught a glimpse of it on Instagram and it is even more beautiful than it first seemed. Love your photography...you've created such a stunning setting here! Perfect Easter inspirations. You're right, why not create an Easter wreath. Decorations can always help us feel more festive. You're right about how Easter can be underrated, it's true. Sometimes people don't feel like celebrating much, but I love celebrations, so I take any excuse I can. Where I'm from, there are many Easter traditions, so I do usually feel festive. These are some fun traditions where I live now as well. I took it easy with decorations this Easter, but I think I did alright in the end. Sometimes less is more. I'm already looking for to another Easter.:) I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend!
