easter tablescape

Whether you’re hosting or traveling for Easter, who doesn’t love a festive dining table?! I don’t know about you, but I love any excuse to decorate our formal dining room! So I played around with some seasonal decor to create this Easter tablescape. Keep reading to see all the pretty little details along with some pointers to create your own Easter tablescape! 🐇

I know I’m usually all about the neutrals when it comes to decor, but for Easter you gotta add some color! I still used neutrals as my base with these burlap placemats, metal chargers, and linen napkins, but added pops of color to make it more playful and Easter-y. 🙂 Here’s a rundown of how I typically set up a tablescape.

Start with a Base

Lay down a tablecloth or table runner as your base. Not only is it pretty, but it will protect your table as well! I found this green striped runner at HomeGoods (linking some other pretty ones I found).

Build your Table Settings

Think of your table settings as layers. I like to start with a round placemat, then a charger, which is basically a large decorative plate, then your dinner plate and salad/dessert plate. Still with me, lol? I know; it’s a lot of plate stacking, but it’s such a put together look. I like white dishes for most occasions because they are neutral, but I liked how the speckles in our everyday dinnerware played off of the speckles in the eggs. For a fun pop of color, I added these baby blue gingham plates underneath.


Linen Napkins

Cloth napkins are an easy way to ‘fancy up’ your Easter tablescape, and you can either keep them subtle, or use a fun color or print if you plan to go with a more neutral table covering. I love white cloth napkins because they’re easy to throw in the wash and bleach after! (Especially if you have kids at the table, or better yet, maybe just give them a paper napkin and call it good lol.)

Pretty Little Details

I found these cute little crocks at Joann’s (linking similar, cheaper ones), and thought they’d be adorable as little nests! I used these at the heads of the table and added little bunnies and egg holders for the other seats. For the other table settings, let’s switch it up! You could also add personal place cards if you’re wanting a more formal vibe.

& that’s it! That’s a simple way of creating a beautiful Easter tablescape. Now, excuse me while I dream of all the deviled eggs my belly can hold. 🙃
