Farmhouse Style- A Spring Inspired Table for Easter

I’ve been collecting Easter and spring decorations for years now. I am sure I was one of the first people here to indulge my spring fantasies with an Easter tree over ten years ago.

To be honest, the tree is not a luscious as some of the others available now but I love it nonetheless and continue to bring it out year on year.

Since the Easter tree, I make sure I snap up anything spring in sales after Easter and on the run up.

I love this time of year. Spring, new life and, living on the farm, you can never experience new life like you do here. The lambs are either new or imminent and I have a batch of hatching eggs in the incubator all ready for Easter chicks.

Shops like TK Max, Home Bargains and Poundland are my favourites but garden centres tend to stock Easter ranges too and I have been known to pick things up from places like that too. In years gone by, Paperchase always came up trumps for Spring but I haven’t seen much in there this year.

Of all my Easter items, my Cath Kidston chicken is my favourite. I love the colours and, even though it sits in my kitchen all year round, it is this time of year that it shines.

I blame my love of chickens and rabbits really. Technically, I could decorate with hens and bunnies all year round and get away with it.

This year I have decided to showcase my Easter finds and show you how I dress my Easter table.

The first thing is a table cloth.

With three children, I usually have an oilcloth table cloth on the table. I haven’t been able to find an Easter themed oilcloth large enough to fit our table so I usually opt for a paper one and, as long as it doesn’t get too grubby (wishful thinking) it should last for a couple of days.

The next thing I use is a runner. No ordinary runner will do though. This is greengrocers grass. I picked it up for less than £4 on eBay. I have seen expensive grass runners for sale but the greengrocers grass is just as good and a fraction of the price.

Those little wire chicks, rabbits and little daisy flowers are scattered over the table and then the fun stuff begins.

I unearth my small collection of rabbit and chicken themed ornaments and crockery.

I love every single thing.

Years ago, M&S used to do a chicken range of tableware at Easter and, if I ever see it on eBay or a charity shop, I can’t help but snap them up. The children love the plates with the 3D chicks on the side of them and I also have a toast rack which I use for napkins if the meal does not have a toast element in it.

The ear of a rabbit on one of my favourite bowls unfortunately had an accident but I loved it so much that I cracked out the super glue and it is almost as good as new.

I fill my little trinket bowls with treats like mini eggs and Easter themed sweets as well as hot cross buns-especially the mini ones which look so cute and are just the right size for little (and big) mouths.

Spring is such a special time of year on the farm so I do like to keep the decorations out for a while to make the most of them.

Happy Spring decorating.

I also snap up any Spring or Easter inspired fabric and tea towels to place under ornaments on my window ledge or to line baskets with. This always makes things look extra lovely.

Happy Spring decorating.
