1 ~ Find the inspiration piece for your easy Easter table setting
The first step to creating your easy Easter tablescape is to find your inspiration piece.
You will build the theme, color, and style around that piece.
My inspiration for this simple Easter table setting was a moss table runner. I found it last season (yep, I found it in December!) and knew it’d be perfect for a Springtime table.
Now, if you don’t have a moss table runner, you can easily use any green table runner instead.
The idea is that it’s a patch of green running down the middle of your table.
Next, find a pretty tablecloth that has a Springtime feel.
2 ~ Arrange the Easter place settings
Once you have the tablecloth and table runner on your table, it’s time to set out the pretty Easter place settings.
I started with a white scallop-edged plate. They’re light and delicate feeling ~ perfect for Easter.
Then I layered a transparent light pink salad plate and a robin’s egg blue dessert plate. The two different colors really bring out the colors in the tablecloth.
Now, in all honesty, I don’t plan on having all these different courses. I just LOVE how the three colors look together on the table. It’s really only about the “look” on the table, not the usability. But I figure, the blue plate can be moved to the top left when we eat, and the pink plate can be used as a separate salad plate if my family chooses. Or, I can just take them away before we start to eat.
Next, I added a light pink napkin (also from Target) to the left of the plates. I tried a few different napkin folds and decided that the simple rectangular fold was best. It didn’t fight with the rest of the place setting and try to dominate it. Instead, the napkin was a wonderful supporting piece on the table.
I also added gorgeous green-handled flatware that was the perfect match to the table runner.
Don’t you just love how every piece of the place setting connects to a color in the tablecloth!
Then to complete this easy pretty Easter tablescape, I added a water glass and a juice glass. I found them at our local thrift store, and I just love them! They’re pretty, but they’re also hefty.
I chose to not include a glass for wine or champagne, as we typically have an Easter brunch or lunch, and I figured we’d most likely have water, lemonade, soda, or iced tea, with orange or apple juice. But you can set out whichever glasses work best for your guests and meal.
3 ~ Create an easy Easter centerpiece for your tablescape
After you have all of your pretty Easter place settings on your table, it’s time to create an easy Easter centerpiece.
The reason this is an easy centerpiece is that it’s all within a container. There’s nothing outside of the container.
The idea is to move my Easter centerpiece off of the table before we sit down. That way the food dishes can be placed in the middle of the table and we can pass the food around. This isn’t a formal sit-down meal. It’s about eating family-style.
So the simple centerpiece for Easter is there to make the table pretty and impress my family, but I don’t plan for it to stay there while we eat.
Hence the centerpiece is in a container ~ easy to pick up and move.
I decided to use my long dough bowl.
You can use something similar, or a tray, or a basket, or a bucket. As long as you can easily pick it up all at once.
Inside my dough bowl, I placed 5 individually planted hyacinths.
*Actually, I bought a bunch of them at Trader Joe’s, took a votive candle holder, added floral foam inside the candle holder, and then pushed the stem into the foam. I then covered the votive holder with wrapping paper that matched the orange in my tablecloth and tied it in place with raffia.
Then I added moss inside the dough bowl and around the flower pots.
The moss tied into the moss runner, provided a little stability to the flower pots, and created a base for the next step of my easy Easter centerpiece.
The final step to this simple centerpiece for Easter is to add a few Easter eggs (after all it can’t be an Easter centerpiece without eggs – right), and a few faux flowers that match the colors in the tablecloth.
I just love how the colors in the centerpiece reflect the look and colors in the tablecloth.
*FYI ~ I used Sola Wood flowers in my centerpiece. They are amazing flowers that you can easily dye any color you want. Using just regular acrylic paint. These are all flowers I have previously dyed. Aren’t they awesome! If you wanna see how easy they are to color, check out my DIY Dyeing Sola Wood Flowers post. Super easy!!
