Easter Décor and Menu

It’s March. In fact, today is the first day of spring! It seems every time I blink these days another season or another holiday is upon us… Today the sun is brilliant and has some real warmth to it.  The crocuses are peeking through the soil and the cherry blossoms are straining to break free of their winter dormancy. Day light savings has kicked in so the days are lighter for longer.  Before long we will be basking in summer sun and reaching for our picnic baskets and BBQs!  But hold on, I am getting ahead of myself.  I will enjoy these last darker days of winter before we hit the carefree days of summer. I will cozy up with a blanket by the fire for just a little longer…but perhaps instead of Netflix bingeing I will peruse Pinterest for Easter ideas.


Easter is only a couple of weeks away so I need to wrap my head around pastel colours, Easter eggs and Easter dinner!  One thing that is a must for Easter is flowers.  I love this display of tulips with pussywillows. This one is a more rustic version but this would work with a glass or silver vase as well.

This is another one that I like…

And I really like this one for a centerpiece or for individual place settings. Silver is a commodity that we don’t use as much anymore but it can be so beautiful.  Thrift stores are a great place to find some silver pieces that would look amazing with a flower display.


Aren’t these lovely? Image found on Campbell Soup Diary blog


How else can you decorate your table?  Do you like a more formal look or does a more rustic theme work better for you? Personally, I like this more rustic scheme.  The pop of pastel blue really adds a nice compliment to the otherwise neutral scheme.


I really love the ‘homemade’ touches. The textile and trim add a lovely tactile quality to this setting– and how perfect is that blue? Image found on Pinterest.


This one is a very simple yet elegant table setting. You could also add in a bit of colour with either coloured flowers or a pastel napkin.


This neutral palette makes for an excellent blank canvas for any colourful easter eggs too… Image found on Pinterest.


This “tree” would be a great compliment on a servery or sideboard.


Bringing the outdoors in– here the naturally pink (and oh-so-seasonal!) blossoms are complemented by tones of pink and gold in the eggs. Image found on House Beautiful.


This nest of eggs is so gorgeous with the all natural dye from red cabbage! I think I’ll try these out.  So pretty! These eggs would even look wonderful as a colourful addition to a place setting.


These have me inspired to get my hands a little dirty in DIY– and why not when the outcome is so naturally beautiful? Image found on House Beautiful.


What about food?  Do you have any particular dishes you gravitate towards for Easter?  I was thinking I might do lamb this year…. After scouring my own recipes and online recipes this is the menu I have come up with.

To start, I am thinking this Feta dip with pita appetizer will be the perfect appie to accompany the lamb main event. See recipe here.


Something to inspire the appetites… Image found in recipe.


The main course will be lamb. This Jamie Oliver recipe caught my attention. “Super easy” and “perfect for Easter”. That’s all I had to read to sell me on this one! Recipe here.


Make sure you leave enough time (1.5hrs plus resting time!) in your Easter schedule for a beautiful roast. Image found in recipe.


Some sort of potato casserole is a must for Easter in my books.  I usually use my stand by of Those Potatoes recipe.  See tne recipe here…


These have been a crowd-pleaser at many festive dinners… rich and full of texture, they complement pretty much any main course! Image found in recipe.


…but I am going to try a different recipe this year and go with a classic scalloped potato recipe. This recipe with the gruyère cheese appeals to me so I will give it a go. Find the recipe here.


There’s something about a good, hearty potato dish, and scalloped potatoes are such a classic. Image found here.


Now we need to balance this meal out with some veggies.  Roasted carrots (recipe here) and green beans (recipe here) should add some colour and nice flavours.


Fresh Spring carrots have a beautiful flavour– see where you can get local, fresh produce for your table. Image found here.


The pine nuts will add a bit of richness and texture to a classic bean dish. Image found in recipe.


Finally, Dessert!

I think this cake looks just perfect for Easter! I love the raspberry colour-so Spring like! Recipe found here.


The Easter Bunny brings enough chocolate… so why not go light with a touch of berries? Image found in recipe.


Well, that is my Easter in a nutshell.  There will be fewer of us this Easter as my daughter and her partner will be away and my youngest is still away at school but for those of us here, we will celebrate with gusto!


Happy Easter to you and yours.  Let us know if you have any great tips, DIY’s or recipes you would like to share!

    Yummm, thanks for getting me thinking. We got snow again today in the valley! I need to bring out the pastels and get in the spirit of Easter; then maybe winter will end?
