As Easter approaches, we would like to share some lovely spring styling ideas that add the perfect finishing touches to any get-togethers over the holiday weekend and freshen up homes for the light-filled new spring season ahead.
We challenge you to come up with anything that gives more of a springtime lift than catching sight of pretty blossom. We have wonderfully realistic white and Pink Faux Blossom Stems that will go on looking fresh throughout the season and beyond. These gorgeous stems are a real favourite for spring styling and are incredibly versatile: group several stems of one colour together for impact, or use a single stem in a bud vase to create a fresh, simple centerpiece for a dining table. They add a naturalistic, foraged feel to rooms and look lovely teamed with the glorious grainy grey textural tones of our new Giulio Vase.
Blooms of creamy white Faux Magnolia are another favourite at this time of year and look stunning grouped in a vase or as single statement stems. Team with Faux Boxwood for a natural, wild arrangement or mix with our Faux Wild Berries for an elegant pairing. Woodland inspiration helps to bring the outside in, reinforcing the connection we have with nature.
Get creative with faux botanicals
Add an uplifting splash of spring colour and a dash of style with our Faux Muscari Plant. Beautiful blue tones give shady corners a lift and liven up tables and mantels. Display singly in our new crackle glaze indoor plant pots, which are also ideal for small houseplants and come in gorgeous, fresh indigo and white patterns, or group three together in a larger pot for more impact. They make a lovely welcome statement in hallways and are perfect for shady spaces that don’t offer enough natural light for houseplants to thrive.
Our new Wirework Bud Vase adds a sense of spring to Easter tablescapes, and look just as eye-catching on mantels, windowsills and shelves. As is often suggested when planting outdoors in the garden, group together in threes for greater impact. These delicate wire and glass vases are perfect for foliage and fresh blooms. They also make a lovely gift for Easter present giving - a lovely way to thank a host - or indeed for any other time. These are elegant, classic pieces that instantly elevate any surface. Interior styling doesn’t have to mean a full makeover, small changes and fresh ideas have just as much impact.
Candles equal ambience
Spring-fresh colourful candles are a wonderful way to brighten a space. Once reserved for special occasions, candlelight creates ambience, mood and atmosphere for both casual and formal dining. We love the effect of lit candles during a daytime celebratory meal just as much as we do for more-intimate evening dining. Our glorious new range of life-affirming colours - perfect for springtime - also look just as good unlit as they do with a gentle flickering light.
Our Coloured Dining Candles come in a glorious pallette of vibrant shades including Beeswax, Turquoise, Fluoro Orange, Eau de Nil, Fluoro Pink and Leaf Green - fabulous when mismatched on a tablescape. Our hand-poured Rustic Dining Candles come in three gorgeous tonal bundles: Flora - rosebud and honeysuckle tones; Verdigris - soft greens and turquoise tones, and Marble - a creamy neutral and grey palette. Each bundle of four non-drip candles is prettily hand-tied, which also makes a lovely ‘thank you’ gift.
For special occasion tables, team any of our dining candles with the Filigree Candle Tray for an elegant centerpiece or consider our pretty Flora Candlestick for a quirkier style. For maximum impact, our chunky wooden hand-crafted Nala Candle Holder has a tactile, organic shape with an eye-catching rustic bead detail. Available in three sizes, they look wonderful paired with our long-burning Macon Rustic Pillar Candles. Perfect for Easter lunch and any other setting you want to bring a bit of simple glamour and elegance to.
If you are going all out for a wonderful Easter celebration this year, we have some gorgeous new decorative pieces to add the perfect finishing touches. Attach our charming little Hanging Bird Decoration to a sturdy plant, door handle or hook to bring a little nod to nature inside. We think they are too pretty only to use at Easter, so simply leave them around once the celebrations are over.
Foraged branches gathered in a large vase make a lovely Easter tree - the perfect spot to hang our adorable Easter bunny decorations. Made from felted wool, it’s hard not to smile when you see these colourful little characters. Our Wooden Mushroom Ornaments bring the outdoors in and add a quirky, yet elegant look to spring tablescapes; available in three sizes, they look great when randomly grouped.
While bunny ears, pastel eggs, and chocolate chicks will always be a few of our favorite Easter traditions, this time of year also inspires us to create lush, seasonal arrangements that will elevate our tabletop décor for Sunday brunch and beyond. Create a gorgeous display featuring a mix of faux blooms and stems in our rustic Wire-work Basket - our Faux Muscari Plant is the perfect size to pop inside along with a little moss and pussy willow.
Pretty and practical
Another simple step to create a special dining table is to use distinctive glassware. Our hand-crafted vintage-style Etched Prosecco Glasses are not only pretty, with a delicate leaf pattern, they are also practical and work just as well as a dessert glass as they do for serving Champagne, Prosecco or any other sparkling - or indeed still - wine.
Unique garden ornaments
This is the ideal time of year to start prepping for garden plans. If you are keen to update your garden, we have a constantly changing Garden & Outdoor collection ranging from unique decorative pieces to vintage planters and statuary, as well as our hand-selected collection of preloved garden furniture. We have beautiful dovecote birdhouses and nestboxes, which add wonderful character to outdoor spaces as well as helping out our feathered friends. We also provide a sourcing service for more unusual pieces that you won’t find elsewhere.
