Want to have your dining table looking nice and seasonal for Easter? Spare yourself too much work and stress by getting the basic elements right, with some specially selected table linen and crockery with a suitably Easter theme. Here are some great Easter table ideas from Sophie Allport.
Sophie Allport’s homeware business was founded in 2007 and now has over 2,000 different product lines. It’s particularly well known for its range of fine bone china and kitchen fabrics and they have some lovely designs with a traditional Easter feel to them.
One of the keys to a hassle free Easter table decoration is to stick to the basics. By picking a few key pieces – such as china cups, mugs, plates, egg cups and a jug – and coordinating textiles – such as table runners, napkins and a table mats- you can easily put together an easy Easter tablescape without undue pressure. Add in some fresh Spring flowers, an Easter candle wreath and some Easter treats and you’re done.
What’s more, although the pieces may have designs such as hares, runner ducks, chickens and sheep on them, they can be used equally well throughout the year too, so are definitely not just to get out of the cupboard at Easter.
Easy Easter table ideas from Sophie Allport homeware
Here’s some inspiration for Easter table ideas from Sophie Allport, all featuring a selection of wonderful designed pieces.
The chicken design ceramics are perfect for an Easter table and are a subtle design. As you can see here, the grey linen chicken design table mats coordinate well with the chicken design cups and saucers, mugs and egg cups.
Making the cup into a decorative table setting is easy, by simply placing a decorative egg into the cup, along with a few brown paper shreddings (or straw if you’ve got it handy!).
Don’t these hare design table textiles look gorgeous? We love how the hare napkin has been folded to produce the effect of ears. It’s a great way to give each guest a gift too, in the form of a sweet mini Easter egg wrapped in the folds of the napkin.
If you’re serving up an Easter tea of Hot Cross Buns and Simnel cake, then why not keep your teapot warm with this fab sheep shaped tea cosy? The sheep design continues on other pieces, including napkins that ideal to have on hand at a tea table.
There are lots of suitably Easter mugs and jugs available in the range. The jugs work equally well for an Easter floral display, as well as being used for holding water or cream.
