Easter decorations 2017 – Spring holiday

For me, Easter is an ideal holiday. More informal, with expectations that are not as high as for Christmas. That is why I really enjoy inviting friends and family at this time for a beautifully set table and delicious food. I have not quite decided what we are going to eat. For Easter decorations, I make it easy on myself. Eggs painted in ombré colours look stylish, and they are really a snap to do. You make different paint baths with increasing amounts of colour. Prefer a marbled effect? Make it modern in ink-blue shades. I find flowering branches combined with cut flowers beautiful, but you will never go wrong with fun decorations hung on them either. Not much time? Then make your napkin – in the same shade as the table cloth – into a nest and place an egg in it. Flowers on the table? Buttercups! Cheerful spring blossoms are a must on every Spring table.
