How to Set a Beautiful Easter Table

Forget the plastic eggs and woven baskets with green plastic. This year, Easter tables are all about elegance … mixed with fun. Get your shopping list app open, today we’re sharing how to set a beautiful Easter table.

Skip the Tablecloth

Forget stuffy tablecloths. This year, head to your local nursery and grab a few yards of turf. Yes. You read that correctly. Purchase some green turf and use it as a table runner. Turf is fantastic because it’s a twist on the traditional table runner and captures the spring ambience Easter calls for.

Get Artsy

For centerpieces, get a little artsy! I love wooden Easter eggs; they are a lot more elegant than the plastic ones (obviously) and add a little holiday fun to centerpieces.

Spray paint the eggs gold and silver and then use different sized glass containers to create gorgeous centerpieces for your Easter table. For wide and low glasses, I suggest placing moss in the bottom and then adding in the eggs.

Don’t forget the flowers! Taller glass containers make the perfect vase for displaying spring beauty in the form of tulips, daisies or irises. Put the eggs into the glasses first and then add the flowers.

Add Color

It’s springtime, and spring means color. Don’t miss the opportunity to add some pops of brightness on your table with chargers and plates. I love taking the colors of the centerpiece flowers and tapping into that to coordinate the dishes. Keep it simple though. Mixing and matching too many colors makes the setting a bit too chaotic. Stick with a couple of colors that match the flowers.

Don’t Forget the Sweets

Inspire the inner-child in your guests with Easter sweets. Take spun bronze metal nests (or other elegant nest-type baskets) and fill them with chocolates like Godiva. Or, grab some chocolate bunnies and display them in the nests.

Pin it!
