Napkins are another key piece of table decoration for Easter. Choose quality cloth napkins with spring designs, or opt for pastel colors that go well with crockery and cutlery. You can also add a creative touch by folding the napkins into bunny or egg shapes. Decorative elements such as centerpieces, candles and flowers are also important to create a warm and festive atmosphere on your Easter table. Centerpieces can consist of fresh or dried flower branches, pine cones, or small baskets filled with fruit or Easter chocolates.
Candles are also an important element for a successful table decoration. Opt for candles in colors that match the dishes and napkins for a warm and festive atmosphere. You can also add a touch of originality by using Ladenac egg-shaped candles.
Finally, don't forget the little details that make all the difference, such as name tags, crystal elements, and chic accessories.
In short, the table decoration for Easter is an opportunity to create a festive and warm atmosphere to gather family and friends. By choosing quality crockery and cutlery, napkins and matching decorative elements, you will create an elegant and refined table to celebrate this special occasion.

The dish: Roast Lamb
How to make it at home: Leg is probably the easiest cut and takes about 25 minutes for 500g to cook medium-rare/rare. To make it really simple, just cover it with a mixture of garlic and herbs. If you're hoping for something a little faster, try a rack of lamb, which takes over 15 minutes for 500g. Alternatively, opt for very low and slow cooking - shanks or shoulder are excellent cuts for this. Cooked for a few hours, the meat should be tender and fall away from the bones. These cuts are also excellent with heavy fruit flavors like prunes, pomegranate or orange.
- 900gr lean lamb (1/2 leg)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 tablespoons freshly chopped thyme leaves
- Grated zest of 2 oranges (reserve oranges)
- 2 lemons, sliced
- 3 tbsp dry white wine
