The colourful Easter is finally here! Despite this year many of us will celebrate them in small groups of two or even one by one, we can still create a festive mood. Easter breakfast is the highlight of the celebration, and a beautiful table setting can surely raise the spirits. That's why IKEA interior designers are sharing ideas on how to decorate a festive table to delight both your family and your wallet.
Even if there will be only two of you at the festive breakfast table, there is a reason to create a little more exclusive setting. You need no tablecloth or many colours to achieve that. Choose pastels instead and improvise with textures. Buy some ornate placemats, add some new plates and bowls of interesting textures and match them by colour to the dinnerwae you already have at home.
Bold, abundant, affordable
The easiest way to create festive impression is to go bold with colours and details. And this does not evenmeanyou have to spend a lot. There is no need to buy many new things - just add a few new attributes to what you already have and choose the ones you will be able to use after the feast ends. Wooden chopping boards can replace the food trays, bamboo lids can serve as plates for bread or sauces, and glass containers will come handy for serving snacks.
A table set for kids
If you spend the Easter morning with the little ones, it's worth considering to add their table with colourful plastic dinnerware instead of your tresured porcelain set. HEROISK bowls, plates and mugs will save you from worries and your kids from the injuries.
For the lovers of classics
Having breakfast served on white porcelain plates will surely uplift your mood. However, even the most beautiful white dishes will disappear on the white tablecloth. So choose some darker monochrome table mats or a patterned tablecloth instead, or add some blooming flowers like daffodils as a centerpiece.
“Soak some flowers or bursting twigs in a vase or decorate twisted napkins and utensils with greenery. This will add a special touch to your table.”

No bunny, no feast
There is no doubt that the Easter symbol made of chocolate will attract the attention of the smallest family members. Yet the bunny made out of the twisted napkin can make you smile even if you are much older. It is easy to make such decoration yourself. To keep your kids from getting bored while you cook, give them a task: let them twist and wrap the napkins around the egg cups to create those extra cute bunny ears.
Inspired by nature
Natural materials are always trendy, so get the inspiration from nature. LÄTTAD place mats made of natural seagrass will make your Easter table setting cosier, while handmade FRYKEN boxes will be just perfect for eggs. Just add some twigs and spring greenery to make them look like small bird nests.
