Guide to a Great Easter
From delicious dishes to family friendly fun, here at Solino Home we’ve listed some of our favorite things to do on this lovely spring holiday weekend.
Of course, being big table linen fans, our interest particularly lies in how you’re going to dress and set that spring dinner table of yours. Here are some ideas to give you a little inspiration:
Easter table décor and settings
Blue and white table
When we think of spring the colors we come up with in our minds eye are yellow, mint green and white –representing daffodils, new lawns and lambs. But, how about going a bit radical with your spring weekend table setting and décor this year? Instead, opt for blue and white. As you can see from the table above this also works beautifully. The light blue napkins coordinate beautifully with the light blue hydrangeas.
Shabby chic table
Then again, you could opt for a neutral color scheme for your place setting. This shabby chic style spring table uses a neutral backdrop with the white napkin, plate and place mat. It’s the decorated boiled egg that adds the colour, along with some scattered green spring shrubbery on the table.
Easter bunny napkin
Another great spring table décor idea is to fold your napkins into bunny heads. It’s not as difficult as you might think – not if you have a good quality linen napkin like our Athena collection napkins. That’s because the thicker they are, the better the folding stays in place. They’ll also sit neater on the table without falling over. See how to make a bunny napkin right here.
Hot cross buns
Who doesn’t love hot cross buns at any time of the year – never mind Easter? However, with the onset of spring we have the perfect excuse to eat them and make them. Talking of which, here is one of our favorite recipes for these yummy spicy buns. These particular delicacies contain apricots and lemon icing.
Spring chicken salad
Around spring time, we want to eat leaner than we have during the winter months. And that’s why salads are a spring time staple. This spring chicken salad with creamy dill dressing doesn’t just look and taste delicious, it also helps you fight the calories in time for summer.
Spring time games
If you’ve got young ones in your company then it’s going to be difficult enough to get them to sit down and eat while the sun shines. But, it’ll be even harder to keep them at the table. And that’s why we love this article from the Verywell Family outlining a host of school-age outdoor games kids can play during the warmer spring weather. From the Nature Photo Scavenger Hunt to the Balloon Toss, there’s enough to keep both their minds and bodies active.
