The Easter holidays come early this year: on 1 and 2 April! A perfect time to spend quality time with friends and/or family. All of you around the table loaded with wonderful food and enjoying each other’s company: these are the ingredients for a wonderful long weekend. Naturally, flowers add a gracious touch to the festivities! Here are some tips for using flowers to make an Easter brunch even more memorable:

Pastels

Pastel colours are traditional for Easter. Soft yellow, pale pink and light blue: these are the colours we always associate with Easter. Divide a large single bouquet in these shades among various empty bottles and pots. Then cluster them together on the table to create a splendid floral display!

Eye-catcher!

But what if all those plates and glasses are taking up a lot of room on your table? In that case, use just one big eye-catching arrangement. Fill a large attractive vase with a bouquet made up of various kinds of flowers and colours.

If there’s simply no more room on the table, find another place in the room for an eye-catcher. Group at least three pot anthuriums on a little side table or in a corner to create your own pastel urban jungle.

What about using a special table arrangement? Maybe you weren’t planning on this, but it makes a table look even more inviting! Especially if you include an anthurium cut flower. Since the anthurium has a sturdy leafless stem, it’s perfect for inserting into a napkin ring.
