How to Make a Beautiful Easter Tablescape
The first layer of a pretty easter tablescape is a tablecloth. I purchase my tablecloths on Amazon. They are extremely inexpensive.
They look really nice however, if they get a stain or candle wax on them, I don’t feel like I’m breaking the bank to replace them. In fact, I always keep a second tablecloth on hand.
I chose to use white tablecloths but you can also find them in many different colors.
While I gravitate to more natural easter decorations, I also find joy in the pastel colors of spring and easter.
I then place a white plate on top of that. I love using white plates as my base because then I can easily switch out the salad plate for any occasion. Last year for Easter, I used a plate that I got from Pier 1 several years ago.
You can see the plates that I’ve made before HERE.
For cute napkin rings, you can roll up a napkin and then fold it in half and tie it with simple twine. What cute little rabbit ears these make. You can place faux eggs in the opening and set them on your plate.
The Easter Centerpiece
Then I used my faux eucalyptus garland down the center of my table and put my Trader Joe’s or grocery store flowers in glass vases.
Again, these vases are available for $1.25 at Dollar Tree. If you don’t have a Dollar Tree you probably have another local dollar store. You can also find loads of vases at Goodwill or a thrift store. Another great way to display fresh flowers is to use a mason jar.
I popped some spring flowers from our local nursery into some old terra cotta pots and made the cutest little pansy holders with eggshells from our chickens and some ceramic egg cups that I got a few years back at World Market for $1.
You could also place little place cards on each egg cup plant holder so your guests will know where to sit.
This year’s Easter Plans
As I mentioned earlier I’m drawn to more natural elements so I have a few DIY projects planned.
I want to make a Spanish moss table runner for my dining room table that I can layer with my ceramic bunnies and some fresh flowers in a natural color scheme with just a little pop of color. I will use some inexpensive brown kraft paper that I always have on hand as the base for my moss runner.
I’m picturing the end result will look much like my whimsical mantelscape. It’s one of my favorite easter ideas. You can find the video of it HERE. Everything I used was gathered from my greenhouse and/or was already part of my spring/easter decorations.
It reminds me of a garden party.
I’m also planning to try dying my eggs with natural dyes. My friend Wendy from WM Design House dyed eggs with blueberries and they turned out so pretty. There are so many easy DIYs for spring and easter available to make a festive easter tablescape.
I will share more at the bottom of this post.
Only one of my kids will be home for Easter this year. Hence I’m keeping my easter decorating simple and more spring decor.
As always, if I plan ahead of time for holiday events, I can do them on a small budget, have a great time and enjoy my day. I share my tips for Stress-Free Entertaining in my entertaining series.
