Add a little color and whimsy to your Easter decorations with these creative and eclectic options for the dining room.
For the past few years, I’ve been sharing Easter decorating and entertaining ideas here on Inspired by Charm. (If you missed them, you can check out the 2018 Easter decorations from my apartment here and the 2017 Easter decorations at my previous house here.)
Even though I typically don’t host Easter celebrations, I like decorating for the holiday. After a dark and dreary winter, it’s an excuse to bring out something fun and colorful. And that’s exactly what I did for this year’s Easter tablescape.
In getting ready for spring, I’ve also teamed up again with my Seasons of Home blogger friends! Today we are sharing our Easter creations. I’ve linked up all of them at the end of this post so be sure to check them out!
Colorful Easter Decorations:
To get started, here’s a look at how I set my dining room for Easter.
The inspiration for this particular table came from a set of flatware I found at HomeGoods. This iridescent finish has recently become popular. And while it certainly isn’t a traditional finish or style for Easter, I thought it was a fun twist for the holiday.
Speaking of fun, I also was inspired by this cute collection of teacups and saucers. I decided to pick up six sets in different patterns. When I was choosing my designs, I did try to coordinate with the colors in the flatware. I thought traditional teacups with the modern, trendy flatware would be an interesting juxtaposition.
You can find teacups in lots of places. If you’re on a budget, I recommend checking out thrift shops or antique stores. I saw teacups at a local shop for $4-5 each. HomeGoods, which is where I purchased mine, has a great selection.
With those two bold details in place, I set the rest of the table with mostly neutrals, including white plates, small bowls, and clear glassware.
However, for a little more color, I added a speckled napkin. Again, I selected something that picked up some of the colors (pink, blue, and yellow) in the flatware.
The napkins are actually a tablecloth I cut into squares. A simple hem around all four sides made quick and custom napkins.
Since it’s Easter, a few chocolate eggs were a must. I simply filled a small bowl with purple Easter grass and tucked in a trio of colorful foil-wrapped eggs.
For the centerpiece, I opted for fresh flowers. These tulips and roses fit my color scheme perfectly. Although I did have to go to two different grocery stores, I was lucky enough to find these at a good price.
I think the saturated and bold colors work wonderfully together. They also happen to go well with this modern art piece that I’ve hung above the sideboard.
I actually purchased the artwork for my family room (which I’ll be sharing with you next week), but I couldn’t resist hanging it up in my dining room to complement my Easter decorations. It was pure serendipity how it all came together.
You might have noticed the other little surprise on my sideboard. It’s my Easter Bunny Rice Krispies Treat.
I shared the recipe with you last week. (You can find it here in case you missed it.) Now you can see why I chose to dye it purple. It fits in wonderfully, doesn’t it?
It had been a while since I’d eaten a Rice Krispies Treat, and I had forgotten how yummy it is. In fact, it was so good, I had to get it out of the house before I ate any more of it. I had intended to save the bunny to use in another photo shoot, but oh well….
And with that, my Easter table was set.
I realize these bold colors and creative combinations aren’t for everyone, but it was great fun trying something new for my Easter decorations this year. It never ceases to amaze me how one piece (in this case, colorful flatware) can inspire an entire room.
When you’re looking for inspiration for your Easter decorations, look for something you really like and pull ideas from that one item.
I hope you enjoyed this post and picked up an idea or two for your own Easter decorating!
