Set Your Photo-Ready Easter Table with a Spring Splash

Create an enticing, photo-ready Easter table with colorful Spring themes, including fresh flowers, nested eggs, and delectable desserts.

Easter coincides with spring, so most of its symbols are refreshing and fun. Décor for your holiday table can include lovely things like bunches of spring flowers, fresh grass, fluffy toy chicks, rabbits, and candy (which has nothing to do with spring, but why knock it).

Picking Your Favorite Easter Theme

You can create an abundant Easter table teeming with eggs and bunnies, or decorate with just one bouquet of iconic flowers. Typical Easter blooms are daffodils and hyacinths, but don’t feel limited. You can embellish an Easter table with tulips, hydrangea, cherry blossoms, grass, or any other in-season blooms.

If you don’t find time to buy flowers for your holiday table, another quick way to move it into Easter mode is to introduce one perfect Easter egg. It really isn’t harder than that!

And, now that we’re on the subject of eggs, you’ll have to decide on your favorite egg scheme. Think about your favorite hues—also, think about your time commitment (decorating eggs can happily eat up a whole afternoon). There’s no right way, only a right way for you. If you need a shortcut, you can always purchase Easter eggs in cookie or candy incarnations.

If you choose to skip eggs entirely on your Easter table (yes, you can do that), a simple alternative is to decorate with just one perfect bunny. If you give it room on the table, and don’t distract with too many other items, one will be enough.

Just like with egg options, the right Easter bunny requires thought. The right bunny for you might involve baking, crafting, or simply placing faux ears on everything at the table. If all of this sounds like too much work, buy some appealing bunny cookies and set them on your loveliest linens.

Choosing a Color Palette

The iconic palette of Easter is going to be your friend this holiday. It speaks volumes. You can forgo Easter eggs, bunnies, and flowers . . . if you just set your table in yellows, pinks, and blues. These recognizable Easter colors are versatile, and can veer into bright, bold tones or subtle, powdery ones. They both work!

For the overall scheme of your table, one easy look is a sweet, earthy aesthetic. All you need are undyed eggs (what could be easier), a few feathers, or a sprig of leaves. The natural items couldn’t make your job easier or your tableware look prettier.

If natural décor isn’t your vibe, go ahead and create a sugary, colorful table-scape. When sweets are your passion, Easter is not the time to hold back.
