Four ways to decorate your table for Easter without breaking the bank
For many, Easter is an opportunity to indulge in culinary delights with family and friends.
Impress guests with a few simple seasonal decorations to create a festive table setting.
Here’s how to make your Easter track sing without spending a fortune. . .
LUNCH: Bright daffodils are the ultimate spring flower, bringing a simple joy to your Easter table. Buy a bundle for £1 from Tesco.
Tulips look great too and are relatively cheap – a bouquet costs £2.50 from Asda.
BACKGROUND DETAILS: An Easter-themed tablecloth is an easy way to transform your table.
Tesco has a paper Easter tablecloth, £2, which can be bought with a pack of bunny themed napkins, £1.50.
EASTER TREE: Decorative branches are not only part of Christmas. For an Easter round, find three or four thin branches or sticks in your yard or local park.
You want the branches to stand in a small glass vase or large jar in the center of the table, so look for the size accordingly.
Then fill the bottom of the vase with small handmade Easter eggs – you can get a pack of 36 from Ryman for £2.
Place the branches in the vase and use them to hang Easter decorations. For example, give children an egg-shaped card or paper to color in and hang up.
NEST EGG: Another idea for the centerpiece is a fabulous big egg sitting in a nest.
Hobbycraft sells a large machete for £2 that you can decorate with paint or glitter to match the table.
Find many small twigs, wash them and arrange them in the center of the table in the form of a nest and put the egg on top.
You could even use the shells of hard-boiled eggs to create a feature.
Arrange the shells with their eggs removed in a small basket with moss, sticks and flower buds for a lovely nod to spring and Easter.
You can also add egg shaped candles to the table for £2 each from Poundshop.com.
