Easy Easter Table Decor 

Huge arrangements, tall topiaries and crowded table tops are impressive and stunning. But, where does one store all that stuff?! 

I’ll always prefer a few beautiful, neutral staple pieces that can be intertwined with seasonal pops of color or fun elements for a low key, yet elegant look.

What I appreciate even more is when I can shop my home or repurpose purchased items. This helps keep costs low, is better for the environment and limits clutter.  

Wherever you are on the decor spectrum (‘less is more’ or ‘more is more’), you can still borrow, reuse and repurpose to achieve the look you’re after!

How to Recreate This Simple Easter Tablescape

Start with Color

We’re gearing up to plant annuals in our garden, so I thought…why not pot a few for our table and transplant them when we’re done. Then, we’ll get to enjoy their color all season.

I was really drawn to the springy pink and purple hues of these pansies. They are inexpensive and will look beautiful in our porch containers alongside some grasses and cascading greens. 

I did invest in some little ceramic pots (link is similar to the ones I purchased). I plan to repurpose them by adding some new houseplants this spring. They’ll be perfect for succulents or other small starter plants.

Use your color choice as a jumping off point and choose other objects for your table in a similar or complimentary color way.

Something Borrowed

When creating a temporary decor vignette, I love to shop my home! I look around for items to borrow from other rooms, or even outdoors…as was the case for our Easter table.

We inherited two bunny statues when we moved to our home. They’ve made their way around the garden, sometimes popping up in unexpected places, including our autumn front porch decor.

I brought these little guys in and gave them a quick bath. They’re understated, but perfect for our themed table.

Reuse Seasonal Decor

I have just two totes in the basement that contain seasonal / party items and some faux greenery that is adaptable for nearly any occasion. I raided my stash for chalkboard eggs and a leafy garland.

The garland winds down the center of the table to anchor the potted pansies and to give the bunnies a place to frolic. I love that it’s neutral enough to use all year round or for any holiday. It’s great to invest in one or two strands when they are deeply discounted at the craft store.

I created napkin nests for the pink and purple chalkboard eggs that can double as place cards. Here’s a quick video to show you how easy the nests are to create…

Make It Your Own

I hope my simple Easter table decor inspires you to create a sweet and easy tablescape of your own. Embellish your table to express your style by trying out some of these additions:

  • Layer in a neutral table runner or cloth
  • Swap the garland for a festive and colorful table runner
  • Use placemats or chargers that compliment your colors
  • Add tea lights or taper candles in simple holders or nestled in pots
  • Go really neutral with your centerpiece by potting simple grasses or houseplants (then you don’t even need to transplant!)
  • Instead of subdued, solid-colored eggs, use decorated eggs (like mosaic, painted or decoupaged)

What to Serve on Your Sweet + Simple Easter Table

We’re skipping the lamb and ham and opting for an Oven Roasted Turkey + Chorizo Roulade with Chimichurri. It’s delicious served alongside Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes (from Simply Homecooked) and Roasted Asparagus (from Cookie + Kate).

If you’re planning brunch this year, try these Orange Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls (+ don’t forget the mimosas)!

  1. Your Easter table is to die for! So beautiful, and I can see you’re using a lot of neutrals that can also be used for other events/celebrations (which I love). Just beautiful!

  2. This is so pretty! I love the colors you chose and the greenery. And using the potted plants that you will plant outside later is absolute genius!
