Gorgeous Easter Entertaining Ideas include a delicious Easter dinner menu & recipes plus Easter tablescape. When it comes to Easter menus, this one is a crowd please’r. We’ve got traditional lamb chops that have been marinated overnight so they’re rich and flavorful. The complementary side dishes are equally appetizing and easy to make. And the final dessert is a luscious layer cake that’s moist and heavenly! Incorporate these ideas along with anything from our Easter entertaining series and host the best spring celebration at home.
These Easter dinner ideas combine tradition with a modern sensibility for a fantastic holiday meal
This year we’re setting a tablescape for Easter that’s an updated take on traditional design. I’ve incorporated these modern plates with a matte finish and irregular shape. They’re gorgeous alongside a mismatch set of juice glasses and red wine glasses.
To further the eclectic and “collected” feel of the Easter table setting I used an array of colorful napkins in blue and pink. Gold flatware is so chic right now and looks fantastic with the Easter place settings.
For more ideas and inspiration don’t miss this beautiful Easter tablescape.
Easter centerpiece ideas include a row of white vases filled with pink, blue, and white flowers. Each vase varies in design but all are white so they coordinate together. There’s also a dish filled with speckled Easter eggs and small egg cups filled with mini flower arrangements.
Use flowers, white vases, and Easter eggs to create beautiful Easter tablescapes like this.
One of my favorite details of these Easter place settings is the name cards made from eggs and printed ribbon. This is such a simple idea but so chic! I used my ribbon label maker to print off each guests’ name and then tucked the ribbon into a rubber band wrapped around the egg.
Small white egg cups are used to hold real egg shells that are cleaned and spray painted gold. Then the shells are used as vases and filled with water and small flowers. These look so cute interspersed among the larger vases on the table.
This table and menu plan are set up for Easter dinner or lunch but you can find a fantastic Easter brunch & tablescape here, or check out this Easter brunch entertaining menu & tablescape. Either one has great ideas and recipes to incorporate and can be mixed and matched to your liking.
