And to make the holiday even better, people decide to decorate their house and have a special dinner or lunch with their families. That is why we decided to show you some ways you can decorate your festive table and have an unforgettable Easter day. Check them out!
#1 Carrot cutlery
One of the interesting ways to decorate your Easter table is to have some theme. The first of the ideas is inspired by the traditional Easter Rabbit and it is quite easy to make it. You can make the cutlery in the shape of a carrot for the Easter Rabbit.
What you will need is some orange napkins and some green cutlery. It would be easier to find plastic green forks and knives, but if you find metal ones, or at least the handle of it could be in green.
Then just wrap an orange napkin around a set of cutlery and try to create a shape of a carrot. In other words, you need to create an inverted triangular. You can also put a small rabbit next to the cutlery for a stronger carrot effect and to make the table even more thematic.
#2 Chick eggs
The next decoration is rather a dish, but it is so cute that it could be one of the best decorations because your Easter table will look good with it and at the same time you will not have to throw the decoration or to keep it in some cupboard until next year.
You can create Easter chicks hatching form an egg. What you need to do is to hard boil as many eggs as you want to create this decoration. It depends on the number of your guests, but let’s say 15 will be fine.
After you boil the eggs, let them cool down and then you need to peel them. This was the easy part. Next you need to be very careful. You have to cut the egg white in two halves horizontally. The specific thing is that you need to cut it in a jagged way to imitate the hatching of a way. If you cannot to it, a plain straight cut can still do the part.
Then you need to remove the hard-boiled egg yolks from the bottom halves of the egg whites and to put them in a bowl. Add some pepper, salt, and cumin to taste, and then add some mayonnaise. The amount of mayonnaise depends on the amount of eggs, but basically, it should be equal to half of the amount of egg yolks.
Then you need to mix the ingredients in the bowl well a yellow mash. Then you need yo fill in the bottom half of the eggs with about a spoonful of the mash. Make sure you fill them up well and you add some more above the top of the egg. Then you will need some olives and a carrot to create the eyes and the nose of the chicks. Cut two very small round pieces of an olive and put them on the yellow part of the egg creating the eyes. Then cut a small line from the carrot for the nose of the chick.
Finally you need to put the upper part of the egg whites on top to create the hatching effect. And this is it. What you need to do next is to put these hatching chicks on a tray and find them a special place on your Easter table.
#3Carrots in a vase
If you have a good sense of humor and you like fresh ideas, then you will surely like this idea as well. As we mentioned earlier, one of the typical symbols of Easter is the Easter Rabbit and thus, rabbits’ favorite food – carrots.
That is why you can use carrots for another festive table decoration. Get some long fresh carrots with the leafs on and put them in a vase filled with water. You need to make sure the orange part of the carrots is in the vase under the water and the long green leafs are out of the vase.
You also need to choose a glass vase so that your guests can enjoy the interesting type of bouquet you have prepared for them. This is another fresh idea for decorating and once the gathering is over, you will not throw the “flowers” out, but you can cook them. Thoughtful, right?
