With Easter, right around the corner, I thought this might be the perfect time to do a quick post for an easy Easter tablescape. I love how Easter is a no pressure holiday. Therefore, decorating the table should be super quick and easy. Do you agree?
Seriously, this easy Easter tablescape took me all of 15 minutes to pull together. With the exception of a couple items, I shopped our home. Furthermore, you probably have similar items in your home to decorate your table in no time flat.
An Easy Easter Tablescape
First, I start with beautiful fabrics. Table linens are probably my biggest weakness when it comes to decorating a table. I cave like a cheap deck of cards when it comes to pretty table linens. Perhaps the easiest way to add seasonal color or pattern is through the table linens. Anything used on a dining table that is useful and cute is a win/win in my book.
My favorite store to shop for table linens is Home Goods. A colorful or interesting fabric is my kryptonite, and I can’t resist it. Therefore, every blessed time I go into that store, the linen aisle reels me in!
With the theme being an easy Easter tablescape, I opted for a simple rectangular folded napkin placed on the plate. The beauty in setting a casual Easter tablescape is to keep it simple.
While a small detail, a folded napkin means zero napkin rings. Forgoing this one detail means I do not need to find, buy, or gather napkin rings. Viola: EASY.
Next, we use everyday dinnerware. Consequently, after brunch, everything goes into the dishwasher. There’s no hand washing crystal or Grandma’s china. No siree. On this holiday, we use off-white dishes with a little bit of detail. Simple dinnerware allows me to add color through the table linens and accessories.
Sometimes I use a tablecloth, but this year I’m all about jute placemats. The texture the placemats add to the design is fabulous. When it comes to decorating an easy Easter tablescape, it’s important to introduce texture. Most of the items on a table such as utensils, glasses, plates, etc. are hard surfaces. As a result of adding a few natural-ish elements, there is greater visual interest.
Rather than using adult glasses, I added a fun element. The kids place settings have cute little milk glasses with fun paper straws. Truthfully, a spring color straw would look super cute but black and white were in the house. Rather than buying additional straws, I kept it easy. The milk glasses are from Target in the ‘you’re not leaving here without dropping $10’, Dollar Spot. They are just so dang cute!
Finally, in keeping with my easy Easter tablescape theme, I shopped my house for accessories. I don’t have a lot of Easter specific decorations. The few items I do have, however, I really like. For the centerpiece there is a woven basket with speckled pastel eggs. The lanterns and candles are always on the table.
Then I add a couple of cute little bunnies that grace the table. The bunnies add a little Easter charm!
As much as I like versatile dishes, a seasonal dish is a fun addition. This carrot shape dish is holding tea this season. If we were hosting Easter this year, I’d fill it with candy treats for our guests.
So there you have it. This is how I decorate for an easy Easter tablescape. It’s fun to take everyday items and mix in a few seasonal elements to create a fun and casual holiday table.
