Spring will soon be bursting out all over, so today I’m sharing my floral-inspired Easter table decor. Although I designed this tablescape for Easter, with a few edits and additions, it would be lovely for almost any spring gathering. Let me show you what I created.
Floral-Inspired Easter Table Decor:
Yes, my friends, even though this winter has been a mild one, spring will not come soon enough. I’m already in the mood for the gorgeous colors and flowers of the season. So when my friends at HomeGoods asked me to put together a spring table setting for their blog, that was all I needed to start my spring decoration.
Today, I’m excited to show you my Easter table decor. As spring approaches, I hope it brightens your day and gives you ideas for your spring and Easter tables.
In case you’re wondering, approximately 90% of the items on the table are from HomeGoods. Although this post is not sponsored, you know I’m an avid HomeGoods shopper. They have a lovely collection of spring goodies in store now if you’re looking to add new pieces to your decor.
With that introduction, let’s take a closer look at my table!
Easter Table Decor: Find Inspiration
The inspiration for this Easter table decor was flowers. (I know. Florals for spring? Groundbreaking!) However, when I saw these floral-patterned salad plates at HomeGoods, I couldn’t take my eyes off them. They were the first thing I found for my tablescape, and the inspiration grew from there.
Of course, I added other floral elements, including lots of real flowers. In the center of the table, I have two vases of pink tulips in white pitchers. (As you might have noticed, these days white pitchers are one of my go-to’s for flower vases.) I also used glass trifle dishes and set the tulips in them somewhat asymmetrically for a unique look.
Then there are the floral napkins. They’re another fun find which helps to bring together a lot of the colors. That over-the-edge napkin placement never fails.
However, I also wanted to show you this alternative way to place your napkins. I recently got a Brother ScanNCut machine. If you can believe it, I made these faux leather napkin rings with my machine! I crafted them after I photographed this table, but I think I prefer this napkin placement. I like that it lifts the chocolate bunny so it’s not just resting on the plate.
If you are interested in making these napkin rings for your table, I’ve created a blog post with all of the details.
You can find the blog post HERE. I’ve also included the SVG file as a free download so you can easily cut them out on your own cutting machine. They are really simple to make. (I think you could even make using a craft knife if you don’t have a cutting machine.)
Easter Table Setting: Mix it Up
Once I had my inspiration, I used it selecting the rest of my Easter table decor. The pink in the plates inspired me to add more pink to the table, including the water goblets. From there, I chose to mix things up with the inclusion of several other spring colors: yellow, light blue, and even a touch of purple and orange.
You might also have noticed that my bar cart is now in the dining room. I’m still hunting for the perfect sideboard for that space, so I had plenty of room to incorporate the bar cart into my Easter decor.
The bar cart is adorned with more flowers, a jar of jelly beans for color, a candle, glassware, and a few other flourishes. If Easter were here, I would likewise style the cart with a signature cocktail. I think my Rosé Sangria or Cottontail Martinis would be perfect!
Easter Table Setting: Incorporate Texture
One thing I’ve learned to do when setting any table is to bring in a variety of textures and patterns that work well together. This tablescape includes the following:
- small houndstooth in the table runner
- natural woven texture in the placemats
- small floral on the salad plates
- large floral on the napkins
Mixing patterns adds interest and dimension to the table. While I appreciate a simplified table, in this case, I was going for “more is more,” which is why I went with lots of layers and decorative elements.
Easter Table Decor: Keep it Fun
I think that Easter (and most holidays) is a time to have fun and do something whimsical for guests of all ages. Each of us adults still has a kid inside, right? That’s why I decided to add a few cute and delicious chocolate Easter goodies. The gold foil-wrapped bunnies and colorful foil-wrapped eggs add color and sparkle, PLUS they’re a little treat for guests to enjoy at the table or take with them for later.
I used more of the chocolate eggs to fill these adorable carrot-shaped dishes. They look great in my table setting, but I think they’d be delightful on a coffee table or kitchen counter once the meal is over. I love finding things I can use in multiple ways.
As you can see, I took this opportunity to style some of my recent recipes. My Lemon Cream Sandwich Cookies and Blueberry Lemon Whoopie Pies look beautiful and delicious on small white cake stands on opposite ends of the table.
I found this floral-patterned baking dish on one of my HomeGoods trips. It’s empty at the moment, but it matched my Easter table setting so well that I just had to incorporate it. I’m going to be using it soon. I have a few recipe ideas I want to try making in it. Stay tuned for those!
Easter Table Setting: Final Details
Some other details I love about this table are the creamer and sugar bowl which match my flowered plates, white-handled flatware, and gold bunnies. I love subtle details like these because they make the tablescape feel unique and personal.
As a final touch, I added candles. Their design is very simple which makes them blend into the background. However, I love the glow of candles on a table. They’re a must for me.
One last note: I set my table for four, but you could easily translate this into a setting for twelve or pair it down to a cute table for two. My goal is to give you ideas and inspiration no matter how many people you’re hosting.
