Easter Table Decor Ideas- The Ultimate Guide

Set a beautiful and memorable Easter Table. Get ideas from the perfect color palette to centerpiece ideas. This post has easy and pretty ideas.

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 they 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

Choosing a color palette for your Easter table is very important. It will keep your table cohesive and add 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!

Table Linens

Let’s start with a good foundation for our Easter table—table linens! Tablecloths, placemats, table runners, and napkins 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!

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?

I usually 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 overtly Easter motif.

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 Centerpiece

The centerpiece is the star of an Easter table. 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 rectangular 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 pots 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!


Other Easter centerpiece ideas…

  • Use other favorite flowers, like hydrangeas, in a big vase.
  • Decorate a tiered tray with spring items and spring flowers.
  • Fill a dough bowl with moss and bunnies
  • Lay a grapevine wreath on a cake stand and fill the center with dyed eggs
  • Use spring branches, real or faux, in a glass hurricane on the center of a table

Use groupings of candles on your table as well as other Easter-inspired items like little bowls of foil-covered chocolate eggs, nests, and bunnies. The kids at your table will love the candy!


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! This is such an easy DIY to update worn Easter decor. Use chalk paint 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 the pots off with a handsome chocolate Easter bunny! It was so easy and so fun! Everyone should have a little chocolate on 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, but Easter-bunnies-gone-wild looks perfect!


Easter Eggs

Make sure you use your pretty-colored eggs as part of your Easter table decor! Add moss, crinkled paper, or even a few flowers to your eggs—they will be a charming part of your table!


These naturally dyed blue eggs are so pretty! Can you guess what vegetable dyes these gorgeous shades of blue? You might like to see How To Naturally Dye Blue Easter Eggs.


Our family loves Onion Skin Dyed Eggs, which are a very special part of every Easter. My mother, grandmother, and her mother dyed these beautiful eggs before her. They are so easy to dye; maybe you will want to make them a part of your Easter table.

Make a few Torn Tissue Easter Eggs for your table! They are so easy to make and just stunning. Choose paper napkins that work with your color scheme.


The Blue And White Chinoiserie Eggs are my favorite. I display them on a white hobnail plate with brown crinkle paper.


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!


Here are a few Easter treats that the people around your table will love.

  • Little tete-a-tete daffodils in a pot.
  • A mug full of jellybeans
  • Trail mix tied up with a ribbon in a cellophane bag
  • Seed packets
  • Small scented candles
  • Mini picture frames with a Bible verse
  • Easter-themed cookie cutters

FAQs about cheesecloth

Think of the food on your Easter buffet as the main decor. Use pretty dishes and vary the height of food by putting some on a pedestal. Add some spring flowers and a few votive candles and that is all you need.

Keep the centerpiece simple. A big vase filled with tulips or hydrangeas will look perfect!

There are many options. Think about creating a color palette and sticking to it throughout your table. Traditional spring colors are purple, pink, green, yellow, and other pastels. Use the colors you love.

An Easter table is a place for all to gather to enjoy the celebration and blessings of this special day.

I hope this post has inspired you with lots of Easter table decor to create a special Easter table.

    Many thanks!

  24. Wonderful ideas . I made the bunny napkins last Easter and they were a hit.

    1. So simple. Paint whatever you want with chalk paint. I recommend One Step by Amy Howard. YOu can get it at any Ace Hardware. When 2 coats are completely dry mix a little Amy Howard clear wax with antique wax and rub it on the object. Buff off with a soft white rag. That’s it!

  40. Dawn Turner says:

    Brilliant Easter ideas!

  41. Lovely ideas as always~ Thanks for the inspiration.

  42. Lovely… I don’t have a dining area in my Wee Abode. Setting up a table in the living area is what I have to do when I have guests over (only 2-4 at a time!). However, I can definitely be inspired by these ideas and incorporate them in other areas of my little place, such as the counter top of my baker’s cabinet (hoosier). 🙂 Thank you, Yvonne!

  43. Denise Paulus says:

    I love your ideas! Simple and elegant.

  44. Love all the rabbits !

  45. Love all of these beautiful table settings, the colors are beautiful, terra cotta pot baskets are such a good idea. Really enjoy your posts and try to let you know everyday, but the problem I encounter is halfway down the page it reloads and reloads, so getting to the comments is nearly impossible.?

  46. I am so glad you showed the onion dyed eggs. We are carrying on that same tradition as well which has been passed down from my Hungarian grandmother. Each egg is different and they look beautiful in a raffia filled basket. Thanks again. I believe it is so important to carry on the traditions of the older generation and to share them with the ones coming up

  47. Robin Talley says:

    I love the nests that you make and I adore the eggshell planters!! They are sooo adorable! Thank you for sharing them with us!!!

  48. What great ideas. Thank you for the inspiration.

  49. Marcy Leonard says:

    So glad today was a dreary drizzly day–has taken me most of the morning to read all the posts, side bars, and listen to the podcast–but I am feeling inspired AND the sun just came out! Thanks!

  50. genie steger says:

    Oh so pretty, love Easter, the bunnies, eggs, flowers and flowers….

  51. So many pretty things. I love the twigs in the planter and so much more.

  52. Love your ideas! All the tablecloths and napkins are beautiful! Where do you find such lovely patterns? And I’ve never seen a chocolate chicken, love it!!!

  53. love ,love, love those twig cages on a n herb plant….and the bunnies and eggs….love the spring touches

  54. I have decided that some of the bloggers I follow either must never ever sleep, or they have a lot of fairies working nights! Either way, very pretty. Wondering about the peachy colored dishes, could only see a little of them, but quite pretty. And the napkins are lovely too. I have those silver bunny napkin rings too, cute at easter or in a garden themed table.

  55. Pansies say spring to me, esp the old fashion ones with “faces”

  56. Kelly Sanchez says:

    I love all of your Easter table ideas, especially the cute little bunnies. Can’t wait to do mine.

  57. Avril Crundwell says:

    All the ideas are beautiful…but there’s something so special about the flowers. The pansies, daffodils and tulips just make me smile and feel happy.

  58. Oh so many great and beautiful ideas for Easter. Gotta get planning my Easter Brunch on paper and not in my head !! Hugs, Dorinda

  59. Lanita Anderson says:

  61. Carol Elkins says:

    Wonderful ideas for Easter! I love all of the bunnies!

  62. Testing… I tried to post a second comment on today’s post, and it says it’s a duplicate. Can you post more than once on a blog post?

    1. Yes, you can. Wonder why it won’t let me post on the pillows post?

  63. I have always loved the idea of bringing nature into my home for decorating. I will definitely be making the herb pots with twig cages this spring, I can’t wait! Thanks for always sharing such creative and wonderful ideas!

  64. I absolutely love all your table setting ideas. Who wouldn’t want to sit down at any of these? I pin all of your table ideas.Thank you so much for the inspiration.

  65. Such cute ideas, I so love the color of the onion skin dye eggs. and the terra cotta flower pot as a Easter basket very cute.

  66. Just discovered your blog! So much to catch up on. Lovely ideas!

  67. I am simply in awe. and i love the chocolate hen. gotta find me some of those. 🙂

  68. sharon comly says:

  69. sherri irwin says:

    Love your linens, especially the green print tablecloth with the green napkins. Would you share the resource for the tablecloth?

  70. I adore the bunny napkin ring holder as well as the pearls! Great ideas!

  71. mattsgramma says:

  72. Nancy Wilkerson says:

    Some great new ideas to try. Lovely table!

  73. I enjoy all of the ideas…but especially the egg cups with the twigs and egg….sitting on the pretty vintage dish! Also…I am using the vintage “orange/copper” Fire King colored dishes with my Noritake china…the Fairview pattern, which has some peach colored flowers. We rarely eat at the dining room table, although I always have it set!! #Ihateanakedtable!

  74. No Easter dinner here these days, but I love living vicariously through your photos.

  75. Debi Day Foley says:

    I love all your ideas!! Don’t know which to use. LOL

  76. Love the bunny napkin. My guests will be seeing this at their seat in a few days. Thanks.

  77. I love these, wow, sososososo fabulous. Gotta do this. I love it!

  78. I love Easter. You have inspired me to try new decorating ideas for my table. Love your home and the way you add little touches here and there. Now I need to have tea and crumpets to show off my table, thank you for your wonderful tips.

  79. VICKIE AUST says:

    I am so happy I followed your wonderful site thru Table For One and Welcome Guest who are from my local area. I love setting my Dining Room table and this gives me so many ideas. Thanks so much.

  80. Anna Marie says:

    I love all your decorations whether it’s for Easter or any other holiday. Your table is always set so pretty. My question to you is, where do you store all your season items?

    1. Thanks Anna Marie! I have a hall closet we converted to a dish closet. Most of my dishes are stored there.

  81. After a few years of use my Easter table cloth was stained and no longer usable. The stains were in the white center of the cloth so I cut out dinner napkins from the border and hemmed them by hand. I ended up with enough napkins for the family with assorted prints from the edge of the old cloth. They looked great with a pastel tablecloth and my grandkids loved them when they were small.

  82. Enjoying the Easter/Spring decor. Have borrowed many of these ideas over the years. Made dye from red beet juice last year. Just remade another small bird’s nest this morning. Love all you do.

  83. MARY-ANN (FROM CANADA!) says:

    Yvonne, your tablescapes are absolutely beautiful! I hope you can write a book at some point which contains all your seasonal tablescapes, décor, etc. You are definitely “our” Queen of Décor! There’s no one — only YOU — that make things look so beautiful! You always give us so many easy to do fabulous ideas! We are so grateful for you, Yvonne!

    We are keeping you and Bobby in our prayers! God Bess you both for being so special! Yvonne, you make these days of uncertainly a bright spot in our day — and we just thank you so much! Blessings dear friend!

  84. Yvonne,
    Your home is so lovely and I enjoy reading your blogs for inspiration. May I ask where you purchase your cloth napkins? Do you have some favorite stores to shop? I know you have a drawer full of lovely napkins. Thank you.

    1. Hi Sandi, I’ve been collecting cloth napkins for years and years! I find them in local shops and online. I always have my eye out for pretty cloth napkins. I especially love napkins that I can take out of the dryer and don’t have to iron!

  85. Jean Windham says:

    Thank you for all of your great ideas for Easter decorating. I especially love the different dinnerware combinations! You are the best. Jean

  86. Linda Walton says:

    Personally I would paint this freebie white OR light blue. Don’t go with navy! I think it could become tiring over time and that scream “look at me” would take away from relaxed dining.

  87. Thank you for sharing your fabulous ideas Yvonne.

  88. Vicki Sewell says:

    Where did you find the faux cabbage leaf for placemat ?

  89. Yvonne, love the cabbage-dyed blue eggs. Please share your onion skin dyed easter egg instructions. I cannot find it on your site.

  90. Where did you find the green and blue napkins ? I absolutely love those! I would also like to know where you found the bunny napkin rings! You make everything look so beautiful and easy !

    1. Hi Reba, I found the napkins over a decade ago at HomeGoods and the bunny napkin rings at Pottery Barn. Happy Spring.

  91. I love all the Easter/Spring decorating ideas. Thank you so much for sharing. I have been looking for blue and white salad plates like yours. Can you share the link to them?
    Everything is alwasys an inspiration. Thank you for inspiring me over and over.
