3 looks for your Easter decor
With Easter just around the corner, online shopping is still the best choice to help decorate our homes in a unique and creative way. While it will be a quiet event, with the lockdown in the UK easing up after the festivities end, it should still be an opportunity to celebrate Spring, after a very long (and tiring) winter. Table setting at ours will be once more an affair of bird nests, faux (or real) moss and candles. If you are still uncertain of the look that you would like to go for, here are a few themes to get you creative!
Outdoors: first impressions with a colourful display
Let the neighbours feast their eyes on a colourful display outside your home.
Inside: Farmhouse Chic
Neutral colours continue to be big in 2021 and Sophie Allport's Easter collection includes runners, napkins and cushions in beige and grey, with hares, chickens and sheep. I love the placemats which you can also enjoy all year round, and work with plain white plates or Allport's own collection adorned with chickens. Use moss over the runner and fill vases or jugs with fresh flowers. You can also find the step by step on folding your napkins in the shape of a bunny on the Sophie Allport company blog here.

Inside: Rhapsody of colour
An alternative look, for those who want more colour (or maybe have younger children and wish to dress up the table a little more), is on offer from Wayfair. Soft greens, pinks and blues, this could be an afternoon tea session or your main Easter Sunday linch set up. Try:
This is the William tablecloth by Fleur de Lis Living on Wayfair. For a similar tablecloth, search for the Staytonville or the Howington tablecloth on Wayfair.
