How do you set an Easter dinner table?
Easter is not only the celebration of Christ’s resurrection but also a time to celebrate the changing seasons. Easter dinner tables are often set with springtime feasts featuring an assortment of dishes and roasted meats, along with delectable desserts. Here’s how to set your Easter table for a beautiful springtime gathering:
1) Chic and Cherry
For this chic and cherry table, we are using a cotton gingham throw instead of a linen tablecloth and paper doilies as a stand-in.
Keep the setting low and splurge on antique gold-rimmed porcelain dishes. The high/low mix is a fail-proof way to create a look that’s uniquely your own without busting your budget.
2) Elegant Pink Setting
Save money and splurge on an on-trend table, like marble. It’s chic, elegant, and classy.
Include it in one eye-catching statement piece (like a tablecloth or runner), then accent it with bright pops of color like hot pink or lime green.
3) Natural Table Setting
Make a statement with your table setting this Easter. Instead of using it as an opportunity to show off your crystal, silver, and finest china, take the natural route.
The focus here is on the foliage, using ferns as filler foliage. Instead, the mass of fronds is the main event, with only a few tulips poking out.
If you are hosting an Easter lunch or dinner party, create this look by gathering a collection of large leaves from the garden and placing them on top of your tablecloth. Place some eggs in between and put a large vase with flowers in the center. The result is simple yet visually stunning.
4) Iris-Inspired Spring Table
Spring is here and so are the flowers. But if you’re looking for a way to showcase your blooms beyond the traditional vase, look no further than this eye-catching spring tablescape.
To create this colorful table, we pulled inspiration from one of our favorite flowers—the iris. Because the flower’s colors range from purple and yellow to white, gray, and even black, it can easily be placed with almost any color scheme.
5) Kid-Friendly Easter Table
Not all Easter decorations are pastel! Our bright, colorful models decked out with festive flowers will be a statement piece in your home.
Filled with kid-friendly crafts, food, and decor, these paparazzo-worthy tables will make your brunch party simply unforgettable.
6) Candles & Brass Setting
The old candlesticks you’ve been keeping around are back in fashion so you can finally unpack and put to work adding a subtle golden glow to your table setting.
Your candle arrangement intersperses tall candlesticks with lower floral arrangements to create visual interest by varying heights. And, don’t worry about lining everything up perfectly down the center of the table, meandering grouping creates a less formal, relaxed look.
7) Add Some Drama
Add some drama this spring with these colorful hydrangeas, butter yellow eggs, pastels from natural dyeing, and some branches. Vintage plates in painted earthenware work together with a charming trellis made from twining branches to anchor the colors and add dimension to each of these tabletop arrangements.
8) Swap Succulents for Blooms
Springtime is known for its lavish floral displays, but if your collection of garden statuary could use a little sprucing up, consider using plants instead.
Instead of flowers, which tend to wilt in the heat of the sun, choose succulents that thrive in direct sunlight and when planted together en masse. Succulents are drought-resistant and can grow in harsh weather conditions. They are also striking plants, with bold colors and varied shapes.
How do you set a buffet table for Easter?
Easter is a great time for family togetherness, but it also can be a lot of work. You have to make all of the Easter decorations, then you have to hide the eggs and make the baskets, and then you have to figure out what the hell you are going to serve at this thing. So here are buffet table ideas you can use this Easter.
9) Easter Buffet Table with Carvings
I use a lot of different garnishes and fruit on my Easter table, including pastel pinks, yellows, and greens. I also like to add a leek brush flower to the serving tray of sliced turkey.
10) Sweet Tooth Candy Buffet
Sugar is in everything, even in carrot shaped candy! This dessert table is absolutely packed with candy and cupcakes all decorated with impeccable design. Look at those cookies! A keen eye for detail has created this display.
11) Carrot Easter Buffet
If you want to add a splash of color to your dessert table, consider serving carrot-shaped candies, carrot-themed cupcakes, carrot juice—even the potted plants look like they’d be carrots if you uprooted them.
12) Vegan Easter Buffet
Those old brass candlesticks you have packed away in your garage or basement are actually back in vogue. Time to unpack them and put them to work adding a subtle golden glow to your table. Easter is this weekend and we’re thinking you might want to know what to make for your vegan friends. So we put together a little menu that’s suitable for any party, whether it’s a casual family get-together or an Easter feast.
How do you make an Easter centerpiece?
There’s nothing like a festive centerpiece to bring your Easter table to life. This year, try substituting a colorful arrangement of fruit for traditional flowers. Whether you choose to go with apples or lemons, this centerpiece is sure to make your spring celebration shine. Here are some ideas on what centerpiece/s you can use this Easter.
13) Easter Egg Bouquet
This springy floral centerpiece might look elaborate, but it’s quite simple to make. Simply glue plastic Easter eggs onto dowels and add it to a grocery-store bundle of sunny daffodils and carnations.
In a pinch, you can create an egg bouquet with real eggs. Just hard-boil your eggs before adorning the bouquet, so they don’t spoil.
14) Easter Bunny Centerpiece
DIY Easter centerpiece tray is all about the assembly! Create a stunning spring centerpiece using a few accessories and a simple white round tray. Accent purchased robin eggs with a hand-painted gold Easter bunny and chocolate candy.
From a simply painted bunny to an oversized wooden rabbit, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Easter ideas for outdoor displays. Use these inspiring ideas to put together an outdoor display that will have your neighbors hopping with joy this Easter.
15) Easter Grass and Eggs Centerpiece
This Easter egg centerpiece is so easy to make and the result is stunning. The soft colors of the eggs, flowers, grass, and candy make this an elegant display for your holiday table. You can use it as a table decoration or as a centerpiece for a buffet table. Add a simple ribbon or bow to finish it off.
16) Carrot Bouquet
This centerpiece plays up carrots’ sunny colors. You need carrots with their frilly greens still attached and a clear vase to show off the roots. Pair with yellow and orange ranunculus and tulips, or other spring flowers in similar tones from the grocery store. Wash carrots thoroughly (but don’t peel) before arranging to keep the water clean.
How do you decorate for Easter on a budget?
Easter is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start decorating! Whether you’re looking to spruce up your home with a few new decorative items or are planning a party and want to add some festive touches, there are plenty of ways to decorate for Easter without breaking the bank.
17) Burlap Easter Table Runner
Easter time is all about pretty pastels and confetti, or at least that’s what I think. I love to incorporate these elements into my home decor and this year I decided to whip up a burlap Easter table runner to help me do just that. It’s going to be the centerpiece of our holiday table, surrounded by pastel easter eggs and nestled in the middle of a spring flower arrangement.
I love how it turned out! This is definitely a fun project if you want to add some homemade decor to your Easter table.
18) Garden Settings
Rabbits love carrots just as much as you’ll love these napkin and silverware pairings straight out of the garden. Wrap green plastic utensils in orange napkins, then secure them with green ribbon or pipe cleaner. They’re perfect for the kids.
Take your dinner al fresco by setting a table outside in the garden. To make a party-ready tablescape, arrange your favorite flowers in low vases along the center of the table, add some fruit and vegetable accents, and pull up a chair.
19) Double-duty Place Cards
Easter is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about egg-dyeing and the annual Easter egg hunt. You’ll definitely want to get those eggs ready for your little ones to find on Easter morning, but you can also use them in a creative way for your holiday table setting.
Instead of leaving them on display, give them to your guests in the form of a pretty place card. Dye the eggs to match your color scheme, then write on names with a metallic Sharpie.
How do you display Easter decorations?
Easter is a time for families to get together, and enjoy the many traditions of this sacred holiday. The Easter decorations are a wonderful way to bring your family and friends together and celebrate the season. There are so many ways that you can decorate for Easter: from the traditional Easter egg hunt to decorating your home with all kinds of flowers, bunny rabbits, and other symbols of springtime.
21) Bunny Napkins
Pretty pink bunny napkins are an Easter craft that I have been wanting to make forever. The cute little bunnies add so much charm to your table setting and only take 10 minutes flat to make.
These little bunnies are the perfect napkin fold for Spring! They are not only easy, but kids will love helping you put them together. They really dress up in a simple table setting with their darling pink noses and ears.
22) Recipe Card Holder
A great way to add some pizzazz to your holiday buffet or food table is with some rustic branches fashioned together to display the names of your dishes. Craft these pieces by cutting a thin sliver in a small piece of wood; place atop a round wood and add moss and eggs.
So, you have a few things leftover from Easter dinner that you just don’t know what to do with? Try this little crafty idea for place cards for your buffet table!
23) Mini Egg Topiaries
The easiest way to add a spring-like feeling to your Easter table is with a bouquet of fresh flowers. But if you want something a little more elaborate, try these mini topiaries made from moss and faux boxwood. You can make them in less than five minutes, and they’ll instantly make your table look like something out of a magazine.
The best part is that once you’re done using them for Easter, you can repurpose them for other occasions.
24) Pom Pom Bunny Wreath
This is a very unique Easter decoration. You can make this wreath with homemade or store-bought pom-poms. To make the pom-poms, wrap the yarn around your hand. I wrapped mine about 50 times. Then I tied it in the middle with a piece of yarn and trimmed the ends to give it a round shape. The ears are made with three strands of yarn that are folded in half and then tied twice to form bows. The bow also ties on the back of the wreath so you can hang it.
Easter decor is no exception to the universal “go big or go home” rule. While dressing the table in traditional dishes makes a perfectly good first choice, you know what they say: never stop resting on your laurels. We also have easy Easter recipes you can utilize for your Easter buffet, Easter wishes you can use for your Easter card, and the perfect Easter gift ideas you can give to your loved ones this Easter! Hoppy Easter!
