Easter Party Decoration Ideas

Hello cattledogs readers! I am amazed by all of the inspiration for Easter in the online community right now, aren't you? Bloggers and IG'ers alike seem to be more than ready for the holidays. I decided to follow along! By the way, this is with my monthly Tabletop column for cattledogs and this month, I'm going for a very natural table decoration for a peaceful Easter. I hope that you will like it.

I'm a big fan of colorful tabletop themes, especially in spring. However, I also like decoration that is reduced to a very natural palette in black, white, brown and green. Ever since I painted the popular floral motif of porcelain manufacture on blown out white eggs (with an ) two years ago, I always take them out shortly before Easter weekend. This year they teamed up with beautiful oval paper ornaments from Bungalow which can be found at .

Some tableware turned into small tealight holders made the perfect match. A recurrent pattern always has an harmonic effect, don't you think?

For the name tags I printed the initials of my guests on thin cardboard and cropped it in egg-shape. Afterwards I just tied it to the cake forks with some rustic twine.

The napkins are checked cotton kitchen towels, I simply cut in two parts and lined the open sides.

Where I live, it's easy to buy white, pink and peach-colored blossoming twigs at the florists and weekly market for a month or so. I used this slim window to go out and but some fresh branches as they are so typical for Easter season! On the branches, I hung the eggs I had painted and some of the ornaments from Bungalow.

Do you decorate branches for Easter in your part of the world too? It is very common here in Germany.

The Easter cake you see consists of three layers of coffee-sponge-cake (just add some cold, strong Espresso to your fave sponge cake recipe), a mascarpone cream with finely chopped coffee-flavoured dark chocolate and all kinds of chocolate Easter eggs.

So that is my tabletop for this month! I'm wishing you and your family a happy and sunny Easter holiday. Have a beautiful time until I see you again in the month of May! - Anke
