The giveaway below has ended. Congrats to the winner, Pamela R. !!
Easter will be here before we know it. That’s why today I’ve teamed up with several blogger friends (The Sweetest Occassion, Freutcake, Julie Blanner, and The Effortless Chic) to share Easter decorating ideas, projects, and recipes. I’ll be linking them up below, so be sure to check them out!
I’m also giving away a $150 Amazon gift card to help you celebrate all-things-spring! Later in this post, I’ll be telling you how you can enter for a chance to win.
Let’s kick things off with a look at my dining table set for the holiday. I have a few Easter decorating ideas that I hope will help you set your own.
Easter Decorating Ideas for Your Table:
I’m not sure why it is, but I’ve always enjoyed styling tables. Although I miss the large wood dining table in my old house, I love decorating the small round one here in my apartment.
The idea for this Easter/spring table came about when I saw this patterned coral throw in the clearance section at HomeGoods. I suspect that the throw was left over from summer, but it instantly grabbed my attention. I thought it would be an inexpensive way to try something interesting and new for the holiday.
I was also lucky enough to stumble upon these floral pattern plates which matched my new “tablecloth” perfectly. While I didn’t know how the rest of the table would come together, I was sure I had a great start.
At some point on social media, I asked you what you wanted to see on IBC this spring. Several of you mentioned you’d like Easter decorating ideas that didn’t include eggs and bunnies. To be honest, that was the goal for this table. But when I found these glass bunny containers filled with eggs, all my good intentions went out the window. However, if you’re not “bunny-and-egg-crazy” and want to recreate this look, just use a unique bowl or vessel minus the eggs.
Because the tablecloth and plates are colorful and patterned, I kept the other essentials simple. A large white dinner plate is perfect and something that I always have on hand. I also opted for a classic white napkin.
And the flatware is a favorite of mine. I’ve kicked myself many times for not buying more. Anthropologie sold it a few years ago, and I only purchased four settings. I love this flatware because it seems to work with everything. It’s classic silver but includes the smallest brass detail which makes it feel current and stylish. The dark wood also works well with my chairs.
Given the size of the table, I tried to keep the rest of the decorative details to a minimum. I used two small floral arrangements. (Flowers are a must for spring. You can read how to create these stylish spring arrangements and others here.) The additional burst of color brought it all together and kept things fun.
For something different, I set out salt and pepper in these cute marble cups I found at Target. I put all of those accessories on this reversible wood and marble board. Boards are handy because you can quickly remove things if you need more space.
You can then bring the board back when it’s time for dessert!
