Tips for creating a memorable Easter table setting
How to add a personal touch to your Easter table setting
Easter Sunday lunch or dinner is an ideal time to bring family and friends together to eat great food, share fantastic company and devour way too many chocolate eggs! But there is nothing quite like sitting down to an Easter meal boasting a stunning table setting which oozes colour and a theme which celebrates your personal style.
Plantation Homes’ friend and interior stylist, Liz Amaya, has created three unique and jaw-dropping Easter table settings, which will ensure maximum effect with minimum effort. And the best thing is, you can check out each of these Easter table settings at each of our World of Homes experience centre and our Harmony display centre this week in the lead up to Easter!
For the beautiful Trinity display home in Springfield Rise , Spring Mountain, Liz brought a suite of fun pastels to the Easter table, creating an opulent and glamorous table setting, fit for any morning, tea, lunch or dinner.
“I used a pastel palette and inspiration drawn from the colours on the Easter cake and added a pop of soft colour to the table,” Liz said.
“The addition of pastels can brighten up any dining (bland sounds harsh) area. Vary bright colours, like the green of the Bunnies with muted pastel shades like soft yellow and blush pink to add depth and texture to the table.
“I love the softness of pale, muted colours and since it is autumn why not use them instead of being traditional.
“The choice of pastels suited the modern aesthetics of the Trinity’s cool grey and white colour palette perfectly.”
At The Surrounds, Helensvale, Liz transformed the Emperor’s dining table into a classically styled setting, fit for royalty!
Liz said, “I chose a neutral palette to suit the classic and contemporary style of the Emperor home.”
“Using simple and timeless ceramic decorative pieces through basic styling - using candles, white linen and the soft texture of baby’s breathe for added textures and visual focal points.”
“Neutrals are not only reliable for use in decorating, but they also play a critical role in providing visual relief, backdrops, and a calming atmosphere.”
“The neutrals work particularly well in contemporary interiors, such as the Emperor home.”
Let’s go modern Australian
The Panama design at our Harmony display centre was treated with a modern Australian style Easter theme, befitting of the Queensland outdoor lifestyle.
“Using fresh foliage of native gum and warm organic textures such a wood I wanted to bring life and a natural touch to the table” Liz said.
“For a rustic, luxe look; take a few branches of your favourite greenery from the garden like eucalyptus or gum or anything you can find in the garden really. I really love blue gum eucalyptus. Gum nuts, rustic pears and cinnamon are great for texture also. These can also be accompanied with natural fibres such as jute or sisal.
“This theme is simply ideal for this coastal-inspired home on the Sunshine Coast.”
