I can’t believe Easter is less than two weeks away! I’ve begun to plan my Easter tablescape and which made me think to share with you How to Create an Elegant Easter Tablescape. Creating the tablescape is always one of my favorite things on any holiday To-Do List!
These are the guidelines I use to help me create a beautiful Easter table for our family. I’ve also shared several tablescapes from past years to inspire your tablescape this Easter. It is always my goal to inspire you to create your own gorgeous tablescapes with tips and ideas.
How to Create an Elegant Easter Tablescape
Use a pastel color palette
After the dark and rich colors of fall and winter, fresh pastel colors are such a welcome change. I have chosen pale blue and white to anchor this tablescape. I used these Juliska Country Estate in Delft Blue dinner plates on my Thanksgiving table and love how fresh and light they look in this table setting. I’ve added similar pale blue linen napkins to highlight the pastel blue in the plates. They have a hemstitch detail that matches my classic white linen hemstitch tablecloth.
Incorporate seasonal flowers that accent your color palette
Nothing says spring like beautiful tulips. Whether you fill your favorite vase to overflowing or incorporate them into another arrangement as I have here, they embody spring to me. I used water picks (small containers that hold water on the end of the flower) to keep the flowers hydrated. You have to do this the day of your event with the hydrangeas. A mix of small vases would be beautiful mixed in and around the garland, as well. Other spring flowers for a fresh tablescape include hydrangea, hyacinth, ranunculus, peonies, daffodils, azaleas and anemones.
Bring the outdoors in with fresh greenery
Beautiful greenery is the first sign of spring so why not highlight it in your table setting. The beautiful garland in the photos is from my friends at Gracious Garlands arrived farm fresh and ready to display. In this Easter tablescape, I have clippings from my hedge intertwined with floral arrangements. You can see that post here.
Don’t just think about your dining table. I added a piece to accent my side table where my Juliska Country Estate Soup Tureen holds our favorite spring soup: Chilled Cantaloupe Soup with Tart Raspberry Puree.

Add a natural element like bamboo or wicker
I love the texture that a natural element adds to the table. Bamboo and wicker are perfect for spring. Here I have used Juliska’s Classic Bamboo Salad Plate and Dinner Plate, bamboo napkins rings. and faux bamboo flatware.. I also have their bamboo patterned charger I love having items that mix and match!
Add a whimsical element
Whether you add something with bunnies or a novelty-shaped topiary to your centerpiece, adding a touch of whimsy is just plain fun. On these tablescapes, I have used bunny plates, flower-covered bunnies, hand-painted eggs and bunny salt and pepper shakers. The sky is the limit when you engage your playful side. I’ve shared how to create a container garden like this one here. I just added the moss bunny, and, Voila! Easter centerpiece!
