Lay the table this Easter
Whether it’s Easter or indeed any special occasion, the way you present your table is an area which should never be underestimated or overlooked. Your table should wow guests on arrival, delight as they wait for food to be served, and be happy to take a step back when the meal begins, acting as a beautifully presented, seasonal backdrop. It’s a tricky balance to strike, we know, but that’s where the helpful insight of a stylist comes in handy. Cue Kasia, one of the most wonderfully creative souls here at Neptune.
Something to centre the eye
“A centrepiece is a must, but the way in which you do it is open to interpretation. The key is to keep the look balanced and fuss-free. For me, a grandiose centre section as well as decorated seats would be too overwhelming; things get lost in translation. My perfect Easter table would include some of our tumbled terracotta pots with a springtime bulb nested inside. I’d keep the style of pot the same, and the flower (any colour of hyacinth looks lovely) but I’d scatter decorative hens eggs across the table’s centre line in an assortment of colours for a bit of fun. Alternatively, a voluptuous vase stashed with willow twigs will certainly grab the eye, with eggs hanging from selected branches.”
