I’m so pleased to say that I’ll be working with Always Kalanchoe again on some really exciting content! Last year, I worked with them to show you how Kalanchoes are so easily integrated into your home. So this year, I’m going to be showing you more ideas for my namesake flower!
Kalanchoe’s are a succulent which means they are happiest living in the house. They come in so many different colours and sizes, are super low maintenance and generally really great value! You may have spotted them already at your local supermarket!
Easter has always been a huge celebration in my family. We all pile down to Devon to get together for a long weekend of fun, games and Easter Egg hunts (you’re never too old). With my favourite holiday being just a few days away, I wanted to show you how to create a beautiful table set up. That will wow your family or guests!
Firstly, I must mention that I’ve set up my table outside. We had gorgeously warm weather on this particular day. It’s worth noting however, that Kalanchoes only like warmer temperatures, so should only be kept outside between May and September.
If you are lucky enough to get some of the warm weather we’re promised for Easter weekend, the Kalanchoes should be fine outside unless we’re due any frosts!
It will be Ben’s 30th Birthday in a few short weeks. We’re also celebrating my parents 30th wedding anniversary. I’ve been happily pinning lots of table set ups for inspiration. It’s actually sparked a real interest in me for events decoration!
I’m so pleased with how this turned out. A super simple, elegant, Easter table set up. With pops of those gorgeous spring colours associated with new beginnings, new life and warmer, longer days. Every year, I say I prefer a certain season, but the truth is, each have something super special. Spring however, with its new life giving properties and all the beautiful flowers that pop up does squeeze itself just in front of the other seasons for first place!
I’ve gone for a simple colour palette for my Easter table set up. Pastel green with gold accents and the yellow and white Kalanchoes as the centre piece!
Gold is a huge trend at the moment. Having popped up initially on cutlery and plates, it’s now making its way into our homes adorning our taps and hardware too. It’s one trend that I adore and I love the warmth and elegance it (quite literally) brings to the table. Added warmth is given off by the simple addition of a few candles which also add another layer of detail to the table.
Of course, the gold bunnies are a classic for Easter. They give enough of a nod to the celebration, without going overboard with decorated eggs and straw.
I had initially wanted to pot all my Klanchoes in pale blue/green pastel pots but after having no luck finding any pots, I managed to find these pre-potted yellow Kalanchoes in B&Q. My white Kalanchoes are in their original pots and stand on top of a cake stand, for added depth to the table.
The beauty about this set up, is that the plants will last for weeks on end. The gorgeous Kalanchoes can be repurposed around the house as a beautiful decoration throughout spring. Mine typically last for a season, so when it’s time to change them up, new colours can be introduced to the home.
What do you think of my set up? Will you be introducing Kalanchoes to your Easter table this weekend? You can buy Kalanchoes from your local supermarket including Sainsbury’s and Waitrose.
