A lesson in celebrating Easter the simple yet stylish way — save the bunny motifs for the kids.
1. Pair pale pink dishware with rosy blooms.
The serenity of a pale pink tablescape glows softly in an otherwise neutral space. Set the scene using a few ceramics, dyed feathers and branches of magnolia, almond or cherry blossom. And don’t forget the Easter eggs! For a sophisticated take, skip the child-friendly stickers and primary colours and go for a more modern dip-dyed look as we’ve done here.
2. Add modern Easter touches for a festive yet cool look that's not too sweet.
Easter and springtime are inextricably linked, considered a period of hope and nature’s renewal since ancient times. We’re more than ready to welcome the promise of these propitious sentiments – and some warmer temperatures, please! – into our homes this month with a fresh flurry of flora, fauna and pastel palettes. From elegant eggs and luxe linens to savoury tarts and sweet treats, we’ve got a celebration worthy of this inspiring and bright-eyed time of year.

3. Opt for DIY dusty pink linens.
Layers of linens in this dusky shade of blush – dyed with avocado pits! – are a beautiful spring accent all on their own. As a complement to the rest of your Easter entertaining scheme, though, they bring a natural texture to the scene. Here, they mingle with rustic wood tones to bridge the gap between casual and formal.
