Easter Entertaining at Home with Moyarta

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Easter is always such a fun and happy time to entertain at home. Chocolate eggs, a delicious menu of roast lamb with early Autumn vegetables, egg hunts in the garden and happy family times. Easter brings plenty of colour inspiration for setting a beautiful table as there are so many coloured eggs and other decorations to be found at this time of year.

We love planning and decorating a beautiful table for entertaining at home and wanted to share with you some photos as a little bit of inspiration for your Easter entertaining.

We chose bright shades of pink for our theme and carried this across the table through the use of pink limogue plates and beautiful Le Jacquard Francais linens. We added our little Moyarta jeweled napkin rings and filled ceramic bunnies with a couple of mini pale pink eggs.

Our centerpieces on the table were antique silver baskets filled with hand dyed eggs in lovely shades of pink. We used little sprigs of fresh herbs from the garden in the dying process to make patterns on our eggs and to turn each one into a little art creation of its own.

We love to mix in vintage pieces with new ones on the table and chose pale pink American vintage wine glasses by Fostoria and a beautiful pale pink Vaseline glass bowl with a frilled edge that held our freshly baked hot cross buns when they came out of the oven.

We carried our pink theme across the dining room and created a pink Easter display to sit on our sideboard. We used different types of flowers in small vases as well as little dishes of eggs in coordinating shades. The pink vase is again an American vintage piece made by Fenton.

To finish off our gorgeous Easter lunch (and because we still hadn’t had enough chocolate of course!) we had luscious double layer chocolate ganache cake with sparkly pink eggs on top. 

Happy Easter entertaining everyone from all of us at Moyarta.

Glittered Eggs for Spectacular Easter Entertaining

Friday, April 06, 2012

We built a beautiful Easter centerpiece, ready for Easter entertaining by displaying blown out eggs that had been covered in several different gorgeous shades of glitter. We then added some bunnies, artificial grass and ribbon and placed everything on a lovely antique silver tray.

The result:- an amazing centerpiece.

Here’s how we did it.

Step 1. Blow Out the Eggs

Pierce both the top and the bottom of the egg with a darning needle. Make sure the hole at the bottom is slightly larger so that the egg can run out.

Thoroughly rinse and then leave to drain and dry.

Step 2. Decorate the Eggs

Coat the eggs one side at a time with clear craft glue and then spoon varying shades of glitter over them. Repeat on the remaining side once first side has dried thoroughly.

Step 3. Decorated Eggs Drying

Build a foam drying board for the decorated eggs to dry on.

Take a piece of Styrofoam and push some nails into it to form a drying board.

Step 4. Arranging It All Together

Arrange glittered eggs in a beautiful crystal compote or a lovely glass dish. We used artificial grass squares to line the bottom of our tray but you could use green felt pieces or fabric from the craft store.  We then added some glittered felt carrots and bunnies with coordinating ribbon tied around their necks.

Viola!. Happy Easter entertaining everyone.
