Easter Nest

Twist twigs or pussy willow branches into a nest - or a florist can make one. Gently place flower heads around the edge then fill with eggs... so chic.

The Centrepiece

A tall cake stand is so easy to transform into an Easter talking point. Layer with shredded paper - packaging material is fine - then add eggs, bunnies and bird houses. If you're giving friends or family Easter gifts, then wrap in pretty paper and create a display with them too!

Chic Dining

Tiny nests make such fun place settings: fill with realistic looking chocolate eggs then add a different Easter emblem for each person.

Gifts To Go

Fill stylish jars with mini eggs and before guests leave, give them a little bag of mini Easter eggs as a 'thank you for coming' gift.

Easter 'Tree'

These always look so pretty and really set the scene. Choose a ready-made tree or use stems like the fake blossom branches here. Or make your own natural slender branches - twisted willow is good; leave natural or spray paint white. Then dress with eggs, bords or anything you like, fixing with ribbon or wire as appropriate.

Teatime Style

Buy or bake lovely Easter cakes with seasonal toppings then place on a pretty cake stand.

Classy Collection

A new way to fill an on-trend cloche for a quick and easy Easter table decoration. Arrange with other domes filled with Easter accessories like our bunny and egg cup if you want a larger display.

Vintage Touch

How stylish is this simple arrangement with antique-style cups and saucers filled with tiny spring flowers and topped with moss?

Spring Blooms

A simple trough display makes a big impact! Place little posies of flowers like tulips, lilac or daisies in small pots or glasses (this makes it easier to add water) and place in the trough. Easy, fast and effective.

Be Seated

Planning a celebration Easter meal? Use a fun decoration to make your dining table feel extra special.

Table Talk

Make or buy Easter biscuits for a simple place setting - and add an Easter votive.
