Easter is a great time to think about updating your dining space, because Easter time is synonymous with feelings of rejuvenation and fresh starts. Due to Easter falling during spring time, we tend to associate it with newly blooming flowers and re-birth. Whether you have children and would like to create a playful theme in your dining room for Easter, or if you are looking for a more sophisticated dining update, this is a great time to make a few small changes that can have a wonderfully vibrant impact on your dining space.
To give your dining space a fun feel for Easter, pastel colors work great. Bunting in the shape of eggs can be purchased and strung around the walls of the room to give an instant playful atmosphere, or this can be a great task for kids to make, to give them the opportunity to be creative and have a hand in decorating a room they can feel proud of. Other quintessential decorative Easter items include bunnies and chicks. This theme can be easily added to your current dining room so that you can update your look for the Easter period without spending too much money or making any drastic changes to paint work. Add small touches such as ornaments or themed candles to bring hints of Easter into the decor of your dining room. Another great way to bring a playful Easter theme to your dining room is to fill a large glass vase or bowl with colorful eggs. Use an old fruit bowl or vase as the centerpiece of your dining table and fill it with vibrantly colored eggs. The eggs you use could be edible chocolate eggs covered in colorful foils, or plastic eggs that are just for show. Dressing your table for Easter is a key part of updating your whole dining space, and should be paid extra attention. You can use co-ordinating napkins or colored tableware such as drinks glasses and cutlery to bring the theme together.
For a more grown-up take on Easter themed dining, turn towards flowers and a fresh colors to brighten up your dining space. Spring flowers such as tulips work well at Easter time to bring an air of rejuvenation and new beginnings. Use a mixture of bright yellows and greens with pastel shades for a fresh feel. For a centrepiece at your table, create one large floral arrangement, and compliment this with small individual glasses of fresh wild flowers dotted around the rest of the table. Incorporate the outdoors by using elements you can find in your garden, such as wild herbs or twigs. All of this will give your dining space a magical forest vibe.
For a complete transformation of your dining space at Easter, choose a paint color for the walls which has a fresh feel. A base color such as lemon yellow or dusky pink will work well. When choosing furniture, look towards painted wood to compliment your Easter theme. Dining sets in wood which have been painted white or cream will work with the fresh feeling that you want to create in your dining space at Easter time. If you have an old dining set you could even try painting it yourself with a wood paint to spruce up an old space at a fraction of the cost. For light fittings, look for something that gives off a subtle glow. Both modern and traditional fittings can work well with Easter decor, so stick to items that suit your style but can be incorporated easily into the fresh Easter theme. When dressing your windows, natural fabrics such as linen work well for a fresh and floral dining space. If you have used more lavish textures in your Easter decor, such as glitter and feathers, silk or satin curtains in pastel colors can work well. Steer clear of dark colors or heavy fabrics which will be more reminiscent of winter.
