Need Easter table ideas? Setting an Easter table
Setting an Easter dinner table is such a creative endeavor! It should be an expression of your love and care for those who will grace your table!
Easter tables do not have to be fancy and frilly! Often my Easter tables are Easter brunch tables and are very relaxed and simple. Think of an Easter table as a beautiful spring table! And celebrate all the new life that is budding and blooming this time of year!
Where To Start
The best way to start decorating an Easter table? I say, start with what inspires you! Do you have a plate that you love and the colors are perfect for a spring table? Or did you find a tablecloth that you can build a table around? Or do you want to start with an Easter centerpiece and work from there?
It’s really up to you!
What Is The Color Palette
Choosing a color palette for your Easter table is very important. It will keep your table cohesive and adds to its attractiveness!
Will you use pastels or neutrals or will you go a bit bolder? Once you have your inspiration pieces build a color palette! Doing this will also make your table easier to decorate!
Let’s start with a good foundation for our Easter table. And that means table linens! Tablecloths, placemats, table runners, and napkins. They set the stage for all your Easter tables!
There are so many beautiful spring options! It’s a fun idea to mix and match things like table runners and napkins for a one-of-a-kind look.
Napkins and Napkin Rings
Easter is a celebration. Use pretty spring napkins to grace your Easter table. Go light and airy or sassy and bold. Make a statement on your Easter table with real napkins. It’s those little things that make a table feel special!
Don’t have enough napkins for Easter dinner? No problem!!! Mix and match them! Such a pretty look!
These Bunny Napkin Folds are my favorite! They are easy to make and everyone gets an Easter Egg!
One of my favorite parts of setting a table is playing with my dishes! I’m a stacker! I love to see a salad plate or bowl on top of a few well-coordinated dishes. How about you?
Most often, I like to use a white dinner plate so I incorporate it into the stack of dishes at each Easter table setting. Then I stack dishes on top of the dinner plate which works with my color palette. I don’t have dinnerware with any motif that is overtly Easter.
You can choose to use your best china or beautiful spring paper plates and napkins. Sometimes we feel we need permission to use paper products. So here’s your permission! There are so many truly stunning paper products you would be proud to use in an Easter tablescape.
A cup and saucer are called into duty to be a container for a couple of sunny daffodils!
The star of an Easter table is the centerpiece! It can be elaborate or simple! But make sure it is spring-inspired!
For me, there is nothing prettier than a tulip centerpiece like the ones I used on our Easter brunch table! If you have a rectangle table you can spread your centerpiece down the table!
And if you have a round table you might like to make a beautiful vignette with flowers and Easter decorations grouped together in a basket.
Any bouquet of spring flowers would be the perfect centerpiece for an Easter celebration!
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!
