Let’s start planning our Easter table now! Easter is only a month away and it’s not too early to start getting our ideas together for a gorgeous Easter table! I like to start to gather all the dishes, utensils, napkins and any other things I’m putting on my Easter table in plastic dishpans! No running around last minute for me! I also like to plan out my Easter centerpiece and any little take-home gifts for family and guests! Today’s post is filled with lots of creative ideas to set the perfect Easter table!

I hope you find this inspirational pictorial of Easter ideas very useful! A great post to pin and use as a reference! I’ve chocked it full of my best Easter ideas all in one place. Lot’s of easy-to-recreate Easter DIYs and tips too!
It IS Easter, after all! Let the bunnies in your home go a little wild and decorate your table! Adorable!
Pull out your old bunnies and if they look a little out of date paint them! Use chalk paint and dark wax to give them a makeover!
Create a one-of-a-kind Easter basket for each person at your Easter table! I personalized a terracotta pot and filled it with crinkle paper and goodies. Then I topped it off with a handsome Easter bunny! So easy and so so fun! Everyone should have a little chocolate Easter morning!
Embellish your table with things like salt and pepper bunnies or creamer and sugar bowl bunnies!
I’m not a huge fan of tchotchkes, but on this table, things like Easter-bunnies-gone-wild look perfect!
Use pretty spring napkins to grace your Easter table! Go light and bright or sassy and bold. Make a statement on your Easter table with great napkins! Use real napkins… it’s such a little thing that make a table feel so special!
Don’t have enough napkins for Easter dinner? No problem!!! Mix and match them! Such a pretty look!
Here’s a fun way to turn an ordinary white napkin into a cute bunny! See the tutorial HERE.
How easy to have a napkin act as a pocket for utensils! Click HERE for an easy tutorial! Another oldie, but goodie!
Make sure you use your pretty colored eggs as part of your Easter table decor! Don’t forget to add some moss, crinkled paper or even a few flowers in with your eggs! They will be a charming part of your table!
Have you ever make onion skin dyed eggs? They are beautiful and a tradition in my family! You can see a DIY for them HERE.
Color eggs with vegetables and fruits. The colors are so much more interesting than you can get from a box dye! See naturally dyed eggs HERE. This is an old post! The images aren’t great but the content is!
STACK THOSE PRETTY DISHES
I’m obsessed with a small stack of pretty dishes at each place setting! Easter is a time to show off your great dishes in fun combinations! What do you do with all of them when it’s time to eat? Whisk them all off the table and use them to serve. What you don’t use hide away until you can put them away!
Use the napkin trick… if you don’t have enough of the same dishes to go around mix and match them!!!!
Limit the colors on your table. It will look spectacular!!!!
Use little cups as individual centerpieces! How sweet! The cabbage pattern on these cups and saucers lend a spring look to the table.
Use placemats and other fun embellishments, like this faux cabbage leaf to work into a stack of dishes!
GREAT SEASONAL FLOWERS
This is the time of year that makes my heart sing!!!! I adore spring flowers! Use them liberally! I like to use one kind of spring flowers at my table. Don’t forget, potted spring plants look great as a centerpiece too!
Instead of a big floral centerpiece, how about a few pretty little spring flowers in simple glass vases. So easy and sweet. I love grape hyacinths and they are the perfect flower to dot around the table!
Now is a wonderful time to plant little herbs in pots! These would make such a pretty take-away gift for each person you invite to Easter dinner! I painted little terracotta white and planted small fragrant herbs in each. To make the twiggy cage, I found sticks and twigs outside, stuck them into the pot and tied them with twine. Easy-peasy!
Who can resist tulips for Easter! Classic and springlike!
I love long stemmed tulips, but think about cutting them short and grouping them in several glass containers en mass!
Make sure the Easter bunny leaves something for everyone at your table! Use fun treats at each place setting to greet family and guests! This is my very favorite thing to do! Just watch how surprised and delighted your guest will be! See examples above!
I hope these ideas have inspired you! Here are a few tables that would work great for Easter…
