My Easter Table with Apple Blossom and Bunny Ears!

There are so many lovely Easter traditions in Sweden - from attaching feathers and eggs to branches to påskkärring (children dressing as bright coloured witches and knocking on the doors in the neighbourhood for treats) and rolling dyed eggs down hills to see who's is the last to break. Sadly we'll miss these this year as we're in London (great to be here all the same!). So before we left we had an impromtu Easter lunch and I couldn't help going that egg-stra (sorry) mile. I hope you like it! 

 I kept it simple in a palette of white and beige and then added a hint of colour with branches of apple blossom and baby's breath. 

These pretty glass eggs also helped to bring a little colour to the table. They are quite a lot heavier than I thought (the clue was in the 'glass'!) so if you're looking to get some for your Easter table - make sure you source sturdy branches first. They look lovely arranged in a bowl too.


These bunny ear napkins are so incredibly easy to make (trust me, I'm not a DIY person at all, just ask my family, and they took me all of 60 seconds to hop to it - (err...) - the girls loved them! In case you'd like to make the same, I created my very first DIY know-how film (told you I'd gone that extra mile!) which I'll share later today.


I hope you like the results! If you're wondering where the items are from - here's a get the look from wonderful Danish homeware brand Nordal*.

Five beautifully simple Easter DIY ideas

With Easter fast approaching (yikes!) I've been scanning the web for some cute (yet simple) DIY craft ideas. I've narrowed it down to four beautifully simple ideas.  Think napkins shaped into bunny ears, delicate egg vases, the cutest gift wrapping, eggs with a floral crown and your very own Easter mug. Here are my favourite five:







How cute! I'm going to give all of them a whirl with my girls over the next few days. So fun!

Did any of these ideas catch your eye?

Get the know-how (might need good old google translate for some):

1. Frida Ramstedt of Trendenser's super quick bunny ear napkins
2. Nina Holst's delicate egg vases
3. Steffi's cute bunny rabbit gift wrapping
4. Flax & Twine's pretty floral wreath easter eggs
5. Jewelry & Stuff's fun bunny mug

My big Easter DIY egg edit

Do you have any Easter holiday traditions? Every year the girls and I come to London to spend it with my parents (P stays behind in Sweden to get our boat ready for the season, which is actually one of the highlights of his year - men?!). Besides the annual Easter egg hunt (we like the trail at Ham House), the girls and I also love to decorate the home with handmade pieces. This year we're taking inspiration from these fab eggs (and a bunny napkin for the easter table - how cute is that?!)....













Will you be making any of these?! 

Just in case, here's how:

1 and 2: Love the cute bunny ear tiaras by Zwo:ste
3: Girl.Inspired made these fab eggs with gold glitter.
4, 5: The talented Elisabeth Heier describes how to make these pretty gold eggs here. And pretty eggs with feathers.
5: I'm loving these glam 'pendant' eggs by Lene Bjerre
6: These delicate flowers in egg shells are so simple yet so pretty.

Simple yet fun DIY Easter project!

I love this time of the year don't you? The sun's shining, the spring flowers are out, the nights are longer....and there's chocolate everywhere. What could possibly be better?! Oh and there's that delicious Easter lunch to look forward to on Sunday too. In case you're in charge of laying the table for the big event - here's some perfectly Danish Easter egg painting inspiration from Ferm Living to enjoy. Simple yet fun and the result is oh so cool.






Ferm Living

Here are my tips for egg painting:

- add eggs to water and simmer for 10 minutes before removing and placing in cold water
- lay out some newspaper to protect your surface
- use a brush and acrylic paint to decorate the egg, painting one half first and let it dry before painting the other half.
- to get a beautiful result for your easter table stick to one colour scheme for all your eggs but use different patterns.

Time to get cracking....(sorry)

I hope you have a very Happy Easter and see you Monday!
