I love spring and Easter! And spring tablescapes are among my favorites! There are so many choices for flowers and colors in spring.
This year, I will use a white quilted bedspread for my tablecloth. I believe I found it at HomeGoods or Marshal’s a few years back. I’ll add my white ceramic dishes and blue linen napkins (from Pottery Barn, a couple of years ago).
For Easter Brunch, I’ll probably use champagne flutes. About 10 years ago, I started collecting pretty champagne flutes – in pairs. I like having an eclectic collection. And, at parties, it makes it easier to remember which is your glass!
While I love big, dramatic centerpieces — they are not very conducive to conversation around the dinner table. Here I used the blue glasses I purchased at Anthropologie last year as vases for pink ranunculus, white freesia and white tulips (from Trader Joe’s).
I added a couple of white ceramic bunnies. And some pink mercury votive holders (Anthro, this year). Add a few blue robin eggs on a glass pedestal … and you have a simple Easter tablescape.

As I sit here typing, I have piles of spring and Easter decorations around me. I also happen to be bundled up, as we’re having a dark, windy, rainy day. I’m trying to think “spring”, but I really just want to go curl up and read a good book.
But back to spring. We’re hosting my stepdaughter’s family birthday dinner next weekend, having a party in early April and hosting Easter dinner. I need some inspiration for spring tablescapes!
These vintage tablescapes from Maria at DreamyWhites are so simple and beautiful.
And, I love this cheery table from StyleMePretty.
When looking for entertaining and floral centerpiece ideas, I often look to the wedding blogs … as they have so many creative ideas … for all seasons, color schemes and holidays.
Love the use of eggs as flower containers in these centerpieces! And how adorable to use teacups as containers for spring flowers. Both images above from Martha Stewart.
These last two are from Southern Living. I love the use of the old pitcher and tall candlestick holders with the country flowers.
You see real eggs used again as containers for flowers and candy with the silver candlesticks, egg cups and bowls. Beautiful!
I’ve got plenty of ideas and inspiration to get started …

It’s looking like we’re going to have great weather for Easter … possibly nice enough for an outdoor Easter brunch. I’ve included a few ideas and pictures of casual tablescapes for Spring and Easter.
When creating a tablescape, you want to select a theme. By using linens, plates, glassware, flowers, candles and decorative items you can create a great tablescape for any season.
I recently purchased the green linen table runner and napkins from Pottery Barn (on sale, of course!) This year I wanted to create a casual and more natural looking spring tablescape.
By adding ceramic white bunnies, the tablescape is an Easter setting.
I experimented with moss eggs decorated with purple ribbon. And added my green carrot salad plates for a slightly different look.
Here are a few other modifications using a different table runner and changing out the flowers.
I collect items all year round for my tablescapes. I make a point of visiting Pottery Barn often near the end of season, as they have some GREAT deals and some interesting ideas. (I bought the green linen napkins for $1.29 each). I also visit places like HomeGoods, Marshalls, and other discount stores early in the season (e.g., December for Valentine’s Day decor). I love a bargain!
