Getting ready for Easter is a fun time packed full of colour, beautiful Spring blooms, sweet treats… and maybe a little chocolate! If you’re looking for some seasonal ideas, we have a great selection of fun, budget-friendly and, most importantly, easy Easter table ideas that the kids can get involved with too.
I love a beautiful Easter table, and enjoy incorporating it as part of the seasonal decor. Setting and decorating your Easter table doesn’t need to be an after-thought, and it can be as simple or as extravagant as time (and budget) allow.
Many great Easter table decorations can easily be made with fresh flowers, dyed eggs, splashes of colour and a little planning. Take a look at our Easter table ideas below for some inspiration!
Easter Table Ideas: Centrepieces
Isn’t this stunning! I just love the pastel colour eggs teamed with gypsophila (‘baby breath’) for a very elegant and affordable Easter centrepiece idea. The Casual Craftlete created this look with a vase in the centre of a wire basket – cover the gypsophila in the vase with the dyed eggs, and voila!
Those little plastic eggs, which are perfect for egg hunts around the garden, also come in useful for some quick and easy Easter table decorations. We love this idea from Made With Happy, which shows how a little creativity can transform something so simple into a cute decoration.
The colour combination of these pastel and gold eggs from Style by Emily Henderson is stunning – and yet easily achievable. You could opt for an ombre effect, or take inspiration from some Spring flowers. The idea to use a metallic paint for some stand-out eggs really brings it all together and makes this both a chic and easy Easter table decoration.
In contrast, perfectly pink spots, solids and stripes are the order of the day with this cute basket idea from Best Friends for Frosting. They look like they just came straight from the farm, albeit a very cute and pink farm!
An Easter tree has become a real staple of Easter decorations. It’s a really lovely idea, makes a fantastic centrepiece and can be made very easily. All you need are some branches from the garden, or picked up on a nature walk, and then incorporate a few blooms (daffodils are great for colour) like this one from Blooms.
Task the kids with decorating some paper oval shapes for eggs, and hang them with ribbon from the branches. Alternatively, you could hang small decorated sugar cookies, or dyed eggs that have had a ribbon thread through them like this version from Life at Clover Hill.
Easter Table Ideas: Edible Treats
Flowers and eggs are beautiful, but if you fancy a sweeter approach to your easy Easter table, then we’ve got you covered!
Who would have thought that jelly beans could make such a beautiful Easter table decoration? If you can prise the beans away from the kids, use them to surround flowers or plain pillar candles like this delightfully simple idea from Take Time for Style.
A chocolate centrepiece is perfectly seasonal for Easter, and would make a fab dessert to share with your guests – I’m just not too sure how long this gorgeous display from Ciao Newport Beach would last in my house! I’m pretty confident there would be lots of choccy faces around the table and a sad empty platter…
These are just the kind of flowers that kids will love! Toothpicks, Starburst and a little creativity bring Spit Up is the New Black’s idea to life.
Easter Table Ideas: Kids’ Projects
Eye-catching and cute, these painted jars that we found on Pinterest are a great Easter craft. Use any glass jars in a variety of sizes, and paint them in a selection of colours. Will they be bunnies or chicks? You decide – all it takes is some permanent marker or paints to bring these jars to life.
Theme your serving platters with an Easter-inspired makeover. The Farm Chicks created these by using colourful paper napkins cut into shape to brighten up plain tableware. Perfect for serving bread, rolls, finger food or other dry foods.
Empty jars get a glorious Easter makeover! This little bunny family from Make Life Lovely is just adorable, and is the perfect inspiration for turning empty jars of any size into cute Easter table decorations.
Easter Table Ideas: Place Settings
Simple and cute! This easy Easter decoration from Oh Happy Day is a fun way to create individual place names. Combine colour-coordinated chocolate eggs and glittery pipe cleaners for a ‘nest’ to complete the look.
What’s not to love about this bunny napkin place setting? In My Own Style gives step-by-step photos to show you how to create your own. We also love her ideas for crepe paper flowers as the centrepiece.
For a different, and equally adorable, option for a bunny napkin, what about this standing bunny from Hot Polka Dot. That extra bit of height in a place setting is great for giving some variety to the table.
For an incredibly elegant (but easy) Easter place setting we love this individual bunny menu from Miss Mustard Seed. Using a simple white carnation for the bunny’s fluffy tail, these menus are both decorative and with purpose.
Get creative and keep the kids amused with these fun printable Easter colouring pages for kids – guaranteed to brighten up your Springtime!
Teeny tiny egg cup gardens are a seasonal way to mark out each guest’s position at the table. The Farm Chicks created this look with some moss and handmade toothpick flags – genius!
A few beautifying details can transform a simple napkin into a really decorative touch at your Easter table. This idea, from Mad Hatter Party Box on Etsy, includes the use of a simple doily and thin ribbon to finish off the Spring look with pastel napkins.
Here’s one for the kids! Make and Takes created a pipe cleaner bunny as a napkin holder, and we think it’s the perfect easy Easter table decoration.
Tulips are my favourite flower, so I’m incredibly partial to this elegant Easter place setting idea from Boxwood Clippings. Your guests will feel very special as they sit to their place and see a beautiful bloom in each setting.
The whole look of Darling Darleen’s Easter table has me hooked – I love everything about it! From the coordinating colours of the tableware to the individual bud vases of tulips, and not forgetting the combination of decorative sweet bowls and individual dyed egg place names.
