Enhance Your Tablescape This Easter

Whether it’s a grown-up supper or a bunny party, we’ve compiled some table ideas for your Easter celebrations. Did we mention there’s also chocolate?


Let’s get down to the basics of mastering a tablescape. Brights and prints are lovely additions for spring, but don’t discount minimal. A neutral base allows your tableware to really stand out. No matter what the formality, natural Irish linen is understated and beautiful.

Tablecloth, €108, 31 Chapel Lane

Create a centre piece. This porcelain glazed piece from Kerry-based potter Mary Neeson has a small opening that fits a few stems of your favourite seasonal blooms. Daffodils are an Easter favourite, especially when picked from the garden.

Mary Neeson vase, Irish Design Shop, €35

For dining, don’t be afraid to mix and match plates in sizes and hues. We love Dunbeacon’s range made by Helen Ennis in West Cork.

Handmade plates, from €8.50, Dunbeacon Pottery

Glassware depends on your tipple of choice, of course. Handily, the Artois and Perigord long range can cover many bases. Made in tall and goblet shapes, they’ll suit water, juice, wine or mixed drinks.

Tall and goblet glasses, €5.59-€6.50, Article Dublin

If you have the patience to master a napkin rabbit, then we salute you. For those of us less craftily inclined, these sustainably dyed napkins from Kathryn Davey add impact without any fuss.

Set of 4 Linen Napkins, Kathryn Davey, €50

What is more welcoming than a candlelit table? Create some atmosphere with traditional candle sticks. This mint and gold number from Debenhams is a springy addition to any table.

Don’t be afraid to show off your chocolate trophies – even if they won’t be around for long. If they’re as beautifully crafted as these Bean and Goose geese, you can use them as ornamental pieces dotted around the table.

Dark chocolate goose, €16.50, Bean and Goose

Finally, chocolate is best with a steaming cup of tea, so pair up your duck or egg with an adorable Avoca ‘Hot Chick’ cup.

Porcelain cup, €12.95, Avoca
