Here’s how to make my easy Easter tablescape that I’m using for Easter dinner this year. I love to decorate for every holiday and hope to inspire you with ways of accessorizing with eggs, nests, or bunnies so as to help you have the best Easter decor ever! To start with, I LOVE to layer multiple items so as to create a luxurious looking table setting.
How to build your Easter tablescape:
So the first step, is to put a runner down the center of your table. Because my dining room table is so wide (six feet!) I actually decided to put two matching striped runners (similar) width-wise. Then, I layered over the runner solid yellow placemats (similar). I like pastel Easter table decorations because they look so Spring-like.
Then, for my Easter tablescape centerpiece, I used a very fun wreath (similar) from Homegoods, which has numerous pastel eggs glued onto it. I think it’s a cool idea to use a wreath as a centerpiece as it is interesting, but low enough that people can readily see over it when seated.
As I continued to layer items, I added hammered silver chargers (similar) which add an element of reflected light, once the candles are lit. Next, I placed miniature salt and pepper shakers at each place setting, as well as these cute bee-embossed glasses for water. My dinner plates are basic Crate and Barrel white ceramic ones and the white ceramic bunny pitcher was from Homegoods .
Now the above three photos are very fun as they are three different bunny-inspired salad or dessert plates that I actually found several years ago at Lazy-Boy Showcase Store in the accessory department! I know, that’s a crazy place to find such great plates, but I LOVE FUN TABLE ACCESSORIES so I collect them whenever I find them!
Next it was time for napkins. I found this link on Pinterest which showed how to fold the cute Pottery Barn bunny napkins in the shape of a BUNNY! Aren’t they SO CUTE! Check out his very easy link. After the napkins I placed multiple clear votive holders with white candles all around the table, seating each holder over little nests of multi-colored paper Easter grass.
Then, I thought I was done but when I came back to look at the entire Easter tablescape, I felt it needed an element of flowers. So I added the white silk hydrangea arrangement that is usually placed in the center of my dining room table throughout the year. Because the end of the table is not going to be occupied by a guest, I decided to place the flowers there. Isn’t a cool addition?
Easter tablescape background: When I moved into my home several years ago, there was a simple, basic, boring chandelier over the table that came with the house (see next photo).
This is a photo of the identical chandelier in our front foyer. So I wanted to replace it but couldn’t find one that I liked. Thus, I went to my favorite silk flower shop (Plants 4 U in Racncho, Mirage, CA) and purchased five branches of berries with attached leaves. Then I cut three of the branches into smaller sprigs and wove them throughout the chandelier (next photo).
And then, to make it longer and more proportional to the big hydrangea centerpiece, I took two branches and aligned them end to end along the long axis of the table (next photo).
This last photo shows the completed chandelier when I was doing my St. Patrick’s Day tablescape. I LOVE IT!!! So did Mr. G.Q.
Besides the chandelier, here are several other bunnies scattered throughout my living room and powder room which contribute to my very fun Easter tablescape decor. Which one is your favorite? Tell me below in the comments.

Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
