Listen, entertaining for the holidays shouldn’t be difficult. There are lots of ways to host a stress-free lunch, brunch or dinner for Easter, without all of the drama. I’ve already shared an idea for a simple side dish and now, I’m going to share a few approachable ideas for easy Easter tablescapes.
When I think of Easter, I think of spring. It’s an opportunity to embrace flowers, bright colors and lots of greenery. Whether you’re hosting an Easter brunch or dinner, there are tons of opportunities to have a beautiful but simple Easter tablescape that will impress your guests. Things to keep in mind when designing a table no matter what the occasion:
- if you’re having flowers, make sure they’re low enough so guests who are sitting across from each other can still talk
- cloth napkins are a great investment and they elevate your table more so than regular paper napkins
- candles are great just be sure to use unscented ones
Alright, ready to be inspired?
Simple Easter Tablescapes
Try using empty bottles // For our wedding, I scoured a variety of thrift stores and purchased tons of bottles to use as our centerpieces. Empty bottles are affordable and you can play with different heights for fun. (image via Pinterest)
Golden eggs as place settings // Unique place settings are so much fun! If you prefer to have a table that uses formal place settings, why not use an egg! You can go to any craft store, purchase some wooden eggs and paint or spray paint them gold. (image via Pinterest)
Ditch the flowers, try green leaves // I love this look – it’s probably one of the simplest Easter tablescapes. All you need is a few vases (or you could use drinking glasses), fill them with water and add in a green leaf or two. Does it get any easier than that? (image via Junebug Weddings)
Greenery as a table runner // Fresh greenery is an awesome option for your Easter table. I love eucalyptus (it’s so pretty) but whatever greenery is your favorite will work too. (image via Lia Griffith)
Keep it simple with a white tablecloth // Nothing brightens up a room more than a simple, minimalist white tablecloth. Think of it as a blank canvas and you can dress it up however you like. (image via Once Wed)
Use citrus as a table runner // Citrus makes a beautiful and unique table runner. It’s inexpensive and even better, you can eat it later. It’s a win-win. Use a mixture of oranges, grapefruits, lemons and limes. And even though it’s not technically a citrus, pineapple makes a great table runner as well. (image via Wilkie Blog)
