Easter Entertaining – Floral Tips for Hosting and Welcoming Family & Friends

With springtime upon us and Easter just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how to spruce up our homes to welcome the new season and our guests. And who better to help us than the fabulous Kath Cooke, a local home and lifestyle stylist with an eye for all things chic and a love of all things floral? Kath has graciously shared some of her top tips for Easter entertaining, so without further ado, let's hear from the stylish lady herself!

Chic meets cosy

Hey, everyone! Kath here, and I'm beyond thrilled to be teaming up with The Flower Lounge to bring you some Easter entertaining inspiration. Sian and the team are my go-to florists, keeping me and my floral obsession alive! Over on my Instagram account, @kath__cooke, I'm all about creating spaces that are both stylish and welcoming, and Easter is the perfect time to infuse your home with some seasonal charm.

Let's Dive into My Top Tips:

Doorstep Décor 

First things first, let's set the scene right from the moment your guests arrive. A beautiful spring wreath on the front door and a basket filled with blooming bulbs on the doorstep instantly make your home feel warm and inviting.

Hallway Showstopper

As your guests step inside, why not treat them to a show-stopping floral arrangement? It's the perfect way to make a statement and fill your home with that gorgeous fresh flower scent.

Candle Magic

Now, let's talk ambience. Candles are an absolute must for me, and The Naked Candle Co. x The Flower Lounge scent, ‘The Florist’ is my go-to fragrance for creating that perfect atmosphere. Trust me, candles, candles and more candles.

Styling Your Table

When it comes to styling your sideboard or coffee table, don't be afraid to mix and match textures and heights. It's all about creating visual interest and making your space feel effortlessly chic. Think glass, ceramics, linen, rattan.

Everyday Centrepiece

For your dining table or kitchen, I love to keep things simple yet stylish. Grouping items in threes  - like a vase of flowers, a candle, and some coaster - adds instant and easy charm to any space.

Bring the Greenery In

No space is complete without a touch of greenery in any season, but particularly spring. Whether it's a small potted ivy or some spring bulbs in pretty plant pots, adding a bit of nature really brings your space to life.

Outdoor Delights 

Finally, let's not forget about the great outdoors if we are blessed with some early sunshine! Dress up your outdoor table with storm lanterns, cosy blankets, and colourful spring planters for a truly inviting atmosphere.

Floral Favours

We all love chocolate, but we love flowers just as much! Wouldn’t it be lovely to give your guests a small posy to take home instead of an Easter egg?

However you're celebrating, revel in the joy of gathering loved ones and opening your doors to fun, feasts and florals!
