Beautiful Easter Tablescape
Set a beautiful Easter tablescape with muted pastels, themed details, and pretty flowers. These Easter entertaining ideas for the table are sure to delight your family or guests!
Easter is mere weeks away so it’s time to start thinking about your Easter table setting. For this table we’re focusing on a floral theme, using a soft color palette.
Almost everything here that’s a foundation piece is white or neutral, so the decorative themed items pop with color. At first glance it may look like a full table but it’s really quite simple to create.
Don’t forget to incorporate the BEST Easter egg hunt idea if you have toddlers on the guest list for the day.
Easter Place Settings
I know I’ve said it over and over, but I love mixing basic white plates with vintage decorative plates. Layering them gives your table a ‘collected’ look. That’s what we did here with vintage pink glass salad/dessert plates.
Each place setting gets a modern version of an Easter basket, so to speak. Use mini compotes to hold basket filler and decorative eggs. You can find speckled eggs or gold-leafed eggs at craft stores and home goods stores.
Use modern water goblets alongside pink vintage champagne coupes for the same effect. The pink pieces actually become “neutral” in this tablescape filled with Spring flowers and colorful Easter eggs.
Pretty decorated eggs and a mix of flowers creates a beautiful Easter table centerpiece.
Decorate with Easter eggs to reinforce the theme of the day. Use mini egg crates with gilded eggs to combine natural and glam together. Use a mix of speckled eggs along with gold-leafed eggs in order to keep it interesting.
How to make egg shell vases
Tuck small flowers into egg crates, using real eggshells as a vase. Making them is easy!
- Use a sharp serrated knife to crack and break off the top portion of the egg. TIP: Cracking the egg shells is easier when you let the egg come to room temperature first.
- Drain the egg into a bowl so you can cook it up later, and rinse out the inside of the shell. Let air dry upside down on a paper towel.
- Use spray paint to paint the shells. Gold metallic paint will add a dressed up gilded look.
- When paint is dry, fill the shell with water and place it into the crate. Pop in a single flower that has been cut down to size.
Create a centerpiece of Spring flowers using mini pitchers or other small vases.
Here, tulips, carnations, and snapdragons are displayed separately to give them each more impact. The mix of colors and textures keeps the Easter table décor more beautiful and interesting.
Easter themed recipes
Serve an Easter menu with classic recipes and themed appetizers. I love to offer light appetizers to guests while waiting on the meal to cook. Food becomes part of your Easter tablescape when it’s presented in an attractive way.
In keeping with the neutrals and pink idea, serve some Rosé bubbly to celebrate the occasion.
If you’re serving children, serve some sparkling cider with the cotton candy “bunny tails” or a delicious sparkling fruit punch.
- Cheese & crackers gets an Easter spin with these slightly sweet bites that are decorated to look like little carrots. You’re going to want to grab this recipe for Easter appetizers creamy carrot bites. Aren’t they adorable!
- Of course you can always serve my favorite delicious deviled eggs with bacon because they’re a hit with everyone!
- Our ham & cheese phyllo cups are another great snack idea. These small bites can be served for Easter brunch or an appetizer before dinner.
Add pretty accents
Use flower stems in an unexpected way to ‘wow’ your guests.
It’s always fun to add something unexpected to your party or celebration at home. In this case I took the floral accents from the Easter tablescape, to the wall!
To create this accent wall I simply attached strips of ribbon to the wall, using tape. Then, using mini clothes pins, I attached small flowers at varying intervals. Using these small “poms,” the installment actually lasts a few days. You could also add greenery to the mix for a lush look.
There’s always room for dessert, especially when it’s something as cute as these chocolate nests.
Or you can add a beautiful cake centerpiece by serving this easy pineapple white layer cake recipe.
These chocolate nests can be part of a bigger dessert table, or can be used as party favors. They’re sure to be a hit with adults and children alike.
