Each year, I love to set an Easter table to welcome Spring and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. A decorated table, often called a tablescape, includes a styled centerpiece and individual place settings.
Here are a few tips to set an Easter table. However, I typically don’t fuss over formal details. I like pretty more than proper, so I have fun with layering dishes, mixing patterns and adding cute, but often unnecessary details.
Here are a few different ways that I have set an Easter table over the years.
This garden inspired Easter table is filled with vibrant green cabbage, orange carrots and bunnies. It reminds me of the story of Peter Rabbit and Mr. Mcgregor’s garden. Galvanized metal, natural materials like jute and sisal and lots of faux greenery add to the outdoor garden theme. For the centerpiece, I used a tiered tray and cake stand to add height and emphasis to the table. Multiple plates and napkins are layered to create depth and interest with color and pattern.

This colorful Easter table is fun, whimsical, and kid friendly, too. First, paper plates, napkins and straws decorated in pastel colors and Easter motifs set a lighthearted mood. I mixed them with white dishes. Next, felt and burlap banners are hung for a touch of whimsy. Lastly, the centerpiece is styled with a ‘large than life’ moss bunny and flowers in white pitchers.

Spring time includes some of my favorite motifs like flowers, bunnies and eggs that represent the beginning of new life. For this Spring inspired Easter table, I styled white dishes over rattan chargers and filled seed pots with faux hydrangea and chalkboard tags. For the centerpiece, I used a terrarium filled with seasonal favorites and lots of greenery. For more pictures, click here.
Pages from a vintage hymnals were used to decorate this table. For instance, torn pages were glued together to create a table runner, filler for glass jars as the centerpiece, and even wall decor. My favorite piece is the cup filled with pages, moss and an egg scripted with gold stickers which can serve as place cards. This vintage hymnal inspired Easter table was one of my first blog posts that I had written. Read more, here.
This Easter table is inspired by my two favorite colors, blue and green. This color combination is so simple and fresh. For the place setting, I used my traditional white dishes and tea towels as napkins. You may recognize the centerpiece from another table I set using white pitchers and blue hydrangeas.
