Easter Table Setting Ideas

Easter Table Setting Ideas | Fun, easy and budget friendly! | onsuttonplace.comWhenever I set the table in our dining room, I feel as though a band should start playing or a choir should start singing. Why? Because sadly, we hardly ever use it. I can count on one hand the number of times we eat in there per year. That said, there is nothing I love more than putting together a welcoming yet simple tablescape. That’s what I’m sharing today along with some tips and sources. These Easter table setting ideas use seasonal items but the basic concepts can be used year round. A source list can be found at the end of the post.

Easter Table Setting Ideas | Fun, easy and budget friendly! | onsuttonplace.comThe easiest place for me to start is with the fabric and flowers. Once I have those in place the rest seems to be easier. I started with my yellow buffalo check runner and added blue ball jars with yellow tulips. For spring, I don’t think you can get a fresher look than combining blue and yellow. Actually, any pastels would be lovely.

Easter Table Setting Ideas | Fun, easy and budget friendly! | onsuttonplace.comIt literally took me 10 minutes to trim the tulips and set them in the jars. It was easy and absolutely anyone can do this. You don’t need vintage jars…any sort of jar will work. If you use clear jars, tying a ribbon around the neck can add the perfect pop of color. Next, I turned to the place settings. I love to layer and I think it’s essential for a pretty table. You don’t need five or six layers…just a few can totally make the same statement.

Easter Table Setting Ideas | Fun, easy and budget friendly! | onsuttonplace.comI didn’t use a placemat because I love the way the white charger pops off the wood table. The chargers have felt circles on the bottom so they don’t scratch my table. White plates, patterned salad plates, vintage napkins and cute place card baskets finish everything off.

Easter Table Setting Ideas | Fun, easy and budget friendly! | onsuttonplace.comI had the little baskets from a few years ago and filled them with blue eggs. I made the name cards on my computer, printed them on cardstock and cut them out. If you choose a pretty, script font your guests will think that you hand wrote them yourself!

Easter Table Setting Ideas | Fun, easy and budget friendly! | onsuttonplace.comI didn’t have a real centerpiece but to add some height I used a cake plate for a bunny nest. I layered a clump of greenery, eggs, carrots and bunnies.

Easter Table Setting Ideas | Fun, easy and budget friendly! | onsuttonplace.comSo…when you are getting ready to set your next table just remember these simple things: fabric and flowers first, layer the table settings and then add the finishing, seasonal touches. Use what you have and add a handmade touch if you can.

    Ann, my sister-in-law and I were talking about you at lunch today! No matter what you do or how simple it is, it is always gorgeous! And you just have a way of displaying bunnies so that they are as cute as can be! Don’t be surprised to see a parade of Ball jars on my table soon!

  13. Since these are my first experiences with Pinterest and the different bloggers I was amazed and so pleased you wrote and told me how to access this particular blog. I loved the blue and yellow themes. Looked so fresh and springy. Anne, you surely are a wonderful designer and keep everything within a budget most all of us can handle. Thanks for the great suggestions.

  14. I am using chargers or beautiful round, scalloped fabric placemats. We are the same in that we don’t use the dining room table, but I still set it and “play house” with all the china and seasonal decorations. One of these days, we’ll use it on a regular basis, I hope.
