Create An Easter Table!

Updated on February 27, 2015

Creating An Easter Table - A Family Tradition!

In our family when I was growing up we always used to mark special occasions and celebrations by creating a beautiful, decorated table. It was tradition. Whether it was a birthday, Christmas, Anniversary or Easter, or just to mark a milestone in the family, we would always make a a table!

We would put presents and food on the table and decorate it using candles, flowers, decorations and colors appropriate to the celebration or season.

I love making an Easter table because you can use fresh spring colors and flowers.

In this lens you will find loads of ideas for decorating your table this Easter. There are some gorgeous Easter table decorations, table cloths, flowers, candles and more. I have also included an idea for an activity you can do together with your children to make some decorations for your Easter table.

Table Decorations Easter

Here are some table decorations for Easter and some ideas for items to decorate your table this Easter. You could choose one or two that you like and feature them to make Easter table centerpieces!

There are some lovely Easter cloth doilies, some stitched cloth Easter bunnies and a beautiful china Easter Table Centerpiece. Why not put an Easter candle in the center of the Easter Egg Wreath? Also how about these novelty Easter salt and pepper shakers!

How to make colored blown eggs for Easter:

This was one of the things I LOVED about Easter when I was a child. My mum and I always used to do this together. We would get some eggs (TIP - get more than you need as a couple usually get broken!), and remove the egg inside the shell to leave a hollow egg for decorating.

To do this first wash your eggs then simply get your egg and a pin, force the pin into the egg at both ends and whittle two holes just a little larger than a pin head. Hold your egg over a large bowl and then blow hard into the top of the egg until all the contents of the egg has come out of the hole at the bottom and into your bowl (TIP - you can set this aside for cooking and eating later to avoid waste). Take note it can be

quite hard going, and takes a fair bit of puff, but it's worth it! If you are really struggling try making the holes in the egg bigger.

Now you are left with an empty eggshell to decorate.

Make sure the shell is clean and dry and then paint the shell any way you like. You can use ordinary paints such as you would use for painting pictures.

Children LOVE making these Easter eggs to decorate.

Here is a gorgeous Easter Bunny stand that you can use to display your decorated eggs once you are done.

This china Easter Table Centrepiece is absolutely stunning! Hand crafted and painted it will add a touch of class to any Easter table.

The Meaning Of Easter - What does Easter mean to you?

I know the Christian meaning of Easter and the story of what happened according to the bible.

To me Easter has always meant new beginnings, the promise of spring, light and warmth coming, flowers and of course CHOCOLATE!

:-) But what does Easter mean to you?

Easter Table Linens For Children

If you are throwing an Easter party for children then these colorful table cloths are exactly what you will need. The Easter egg table clothes and the Easter chic table runners are so cute! I have included some table cloths with a plastic/vinyl finish, which are easy to keep clean by simply wiping off any spills. I have also included a cheap paper one which can be thrown away after use.

      As a child, Easter was a very important day for our family ... steeped in family tradition. The end of Lent! I so remember our Easter table decorations. Thanks for the memories!
