Anna from Mama Bear’s Kitchen gives us the details of a vintage Easter sweets table she styled last year. Read on for the fab details!
I had gathered some friends together to celebrate Easter with a flower crown workshop. (At the event) I wanted the sweets table to be the centrepiece of the room drawing guests back to their childhood with an array of homemade treats and lollies.
Vintage Easter colours
In keeping with the traditional Easter theme, I chose a pastel colour palette, surrounding everything in fresh, crisp white. The table had a distinctly vintage feel with old fashioned lolly jars, white milk glass dishes and compotes, cute kitsch planters and a pretty apron bunting strung across the front.
I complimented the sweets table with a tea station set up on an old white dresser, using my fine china tea cups and a pastel fabric scrap bunting.
For the backdrop I used a timber board my husband made which I painted white. A simple Easter wreath and pastel sign decorated it nicely.
I printed vintage kitsch tags for the lolly bags and decorated glass milk bottles with paper flowers and string. Two simple ways to add creative detail to your styling.
Easy Easter treats I made with the kids included cutting out homemade coconut ice using a bunny cookie cutter shape, and decorating Easter sugar cookies with buttercream. Another fun idea is to dip half an Oreo biscuit into candy melts or chocolate and cover in pastel sprinkles.
Tim Tam pops, pretty cupcakes and a delicious chocolate cake with buttercream roses completed the sweets table.
