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.
