10 Easter tabletop ideas

By: Helen Racanelli


The one time of year you can overindulge in a love of table settings in pretty pastels is definitely Easter. The soft shades of pink, green, blue and yellow are typically associated with springtime, which dovetails with Easter and motifs of renewal and rebirth. After the doldrums of winter, these light, happy colours are most welcome.

While pastels are fairly essential in a traditional Easter table setting, they needn’t hit guests over the head if that’s not your decor style. At the most basic level, a pretty collection of DIY Easter eggs in a white bowl you already own will make an inexpensive centerpiece and bring pastels to the table. But if you’re into more-is-more Easter decorating, you’ll want to check out some of these pretty products to set an Instagram-worthy table for this spring holiday.

Jacquard tablecloth

Setting the table for a special occasion starts with a beautiful tablecloth. This one is an investment, but the pastel edging is subtle enough for it to be trotted out through spring and into summer. In a cotton-linen blend, it will wash well and can become a table linen you can have for decades, so long as you commit to cleaning stains immediately. Easter Jacquard tablecloth, Williams-Sonoma, from $235.

Matte blue, creams and white

Not everything has to be petal pink and baby blue to evoke springtime. An Easter table can be set with darker, matte shades for even more intensity and depth. Creams, whites, blues and lavenders are a sophisticated twist on the light shades we associate with this season. Whimsical, seasonal items like egg cup holders and bowls featuring bunnies can be contrasted with seductively matte dishware. Bunny bowls, egg cup holder, Indigo, from $6.

Pastel glassware

You need not be too matchy-matchy when it comes to pastels on the table. If the thought of six pink tumblers sounds way too twee for your liking, mix them up with a variety of lightened up hues for a less formal vibe. Hobstar glassware add a vintage, sparkling touch to an Easter table, but can also be pressed into use any time of the year. Decorated Hobstar glassware, West Elm, $25 per set of 4.

Graphic bunny plates

Why not do something over-the-top and daring with you Easter decor? If you’re in the Let’s Have Some Real Easter Fun camp, go for a graphic print plate with a bunny motif, like this glazed stoneware one. You can mix and match the colours, or pick one shade like blue and pair it with cloth napkins of the same hue for a gorgeous statement tabletop. Graphic Bunny Plate, Pottery Barn, $34 per set of 4.

Dipped egg candles

So DIY Easter eggs are not your thing. The dipping, the dyeing, the drying is too much bother. That’s fine, especially since you can still steal the look with these super-pretty gold-painted egg candles in pastel shades. Arrange them artfully in a ceramic egg holder, or even save the bottom half of a cardboard egg carton for a look that will mix textures and weight. Handmade Easter Candle Egg, Etsy, $7 each.

Pastel printed plates and dishes

Plain white dinnerware is a forever classic, but injecting pastel printed dishware can take a table setting to luscious and elegant heights. If you adore punchy prints, Anthropologie specializes in them, be it shower curtains, bedding or tableware. This table setting is predominantly pink, but still feels grown-up and neutral enough to bring out any time of the year. Cliveden dinnerware, Anthropologie, from $18 USD.

Cute egg cup

Easter brunch is an entrenched tradition for many families. If you serve up soft-boiled eggs, it’s the time to get cute, so set a table with adorable glass rabbit egg cups like these ones. Glass dinnerware can easily be mixed in with porcelain and stoneware so long as you keep the colours to a minimum, like at this pretty three-colour table setting. Phoebe Egg Cup, Crate and Barrel, $5.

Paper decorations

If you’ve got kids at home, they’ll love decorating for Easter with paper goods like garlands, bunting and loot baskets. If you’re crafty, you can find lots of DIY ideas via Pinterest or Google, but if you just want to shop for these items, we get it. We found this inspiring kids’ Easter table at Land of Nod. Bunny paper cups, Easter-themed napkins and pastel tartan paper boxes are just a few of the items that contribute to a sunny, fun table setting for a kids’ party. Meri Meri Easter Party decorations, Land of Nod, from $5 USD.

Modern Easter tabletop

Instead of bunnies and pastels, scrap tradition and do something modern. Use black dinnerware or accessories as a counterpoint to pastels for a look that’s edgy and unexpected. The key is to keep everything else sleek and crisp as well, even if you’re mixing textures. The interplay of gray, marble veining, black, green and a touch of pink can make for a stunning table setting, especially as seen here, contrasted with sharp geometric shapes. Belay dinnerware, CB2, from $7.

Mason jars

We’re not for a second going to suggest you have to purchase painted Mason jars. After all, it’s a craft you can easily tackle this with some time and some paint.. However, we’re certainly not going to judge if you want to buy them already painted in custom Easter shades. An Etsy artisan called KAStylesMasonJars will custom-paint them in the colours of your choosing. Pastel Mason Jars, Etsy, $48 per set of 4.
