With Easter on its way this week and the sun finally making an appearance, we’re all eager to get our tableware ready for any garden gatherings we might be having - and this Villeroy & Boch floral spring collection fits the bill perfectly.
The beautiful collection features everything you might need to dress your table, from plates and bowls, to cups, jugs, serving dishes and even a range of lovely vases.
And with many of us meeting friends, family and loved ones outdoors this Easter weekend and the weather not completely on our side, there’s no better time than this to perks spirits with a seasonally decorated table to enjoy all our Easter dinner food (opens in new tab).
To help us get our lunch and dinner tables in the best state possible, Villeroy and Boch has even provided some expert tips on how to lay our tables and make the most out of our spring tableware.
How to lay your Easter table
Villeroy & Boch share their expert tips on how to create the perfect setting for your Easter celebrations.
1. Add some texture to your table with a tablecloth or table runner
It’s not every day that you get to use your beautiful tablecloth or table runner, but now is the time. A tablecloth or runner makes any dining experience even more special, and even a simple white cloth can set the tableware off. I am a big fan of matching your tableware to your runner or tablecloth, so for this occasion, I would recommend going for the Colourful Spring Gobelin runner as it matches our recommended dining set.
2. Forget a big centerpiece, flowers are as efficient and add a touch of colour
If you’re not a fan of big centerpieces, a simple yet elegant way of dressing your table is by using flowers. Not only does it bring an added touch of colour to your table and complement your tableware, but flowers can also bring a touch of elegance. The perfect springtime flower for an Easter centerpiece is of course tulips! Tulips come in a huge choice of colours, so you can match them with your tableware, or can choose a bright colour to offset a white table setting.
3. Candles are essential for creating ambiance and adding a romantic feel to your meal
If your Easter celebration is planned for the evening, there’s nothing as special as lighting candles to add a touch of magic and sophistication. Choose a colour that complements your table setting and opt for variety of shapes, sizes and colours. If you want to go for an elegant and sophisticated theme throughout, choose simple, traditional candlesticks, or tealight candles.
By using simple candlesticks or tealight candles, you can afford to go a bit more out there for your candleholder! It’s also great fun to match your tableware with table decorations, such as the Colourful Spring candleholder or Colourful Spring tea light holder. Simple, elegant and effective!
4. The most important of them all…the tableware! You couldn’t eat without
The first step in any beautiful table is of course the tableware itself. As it’s Easter, you can bring the feeling of Spring straight onto your plates as it will brighten everything up.
