Floral Easter Table Decor Ideas
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I can’t resist pretty Easter table decorations! My family is all about holiday feasts, and there’s nothing better than breaking bread with those you love.
I put a lot of thought into how I wanted my Easter table to look this year…a little Beatrix Potter mixed with French Country charm. I hope you’ll find some inspiration here to create your own Easter table decor that will wow your guests and make them feel extra special.

Where to Begin with an Easter Tablescape
Remember having to write essays in high school or college and staring at that big, blank sheet of paper? Yes, I realize students use computers to write essays now, but please just humor me. My point is, designing a tablescape is much like writing a story.
You begin with a theme in mind, create your outline and fill in the details later.
Easter Table Decorating Themes
I took my “blank slate” table and gathered a vision before I bought anything new. A lot of this is done by browsing Pinterest and collecting ideas that speak to me over the course of several weeks.
Check out my Easter DIY Home Decor board if you want a peek at my crazy world.
I decided my Easter table decorations would incorporate some of the following elements:
- Classic Beatrix Potter-style motifs or garden party elements
- Pastel colors, including soft whites, greens, purples and pinks
- Subtle gold metallic accents
- Clear or pastel-colored glassware
I have a deep respect for all types of Easter table decor, and I’ve seen everything from glam to rustic farmhouse and everything in between. There’s no reason I can’t change it up next year, but I also had to keep in mind my French Country starting point.
In our dining room, we have a long, salvaged wood trestle table that creates a rustic vibe. We also have deep grey-blue walls (Benjamin Moore Charcoal Slate) and cream wainscoting. That limits the color palette and style I can choose from, but there are still soooo many possibilities.
For other holidays, I’ve decorated with deep mustard and rust hues (see my fall decor color schemes) as well as neutral metallics (see my mercury glass centerpiece). I knew a spring pastel theme would complement the blue and cream tones in the room.
Easter Table Elements
The next step involved taking inventory of my existing table decor supplies. It’s like figuring out the spices and baking supplies you have on hand before searching for a recipe to fit.
My stash included the following:
- Clear crystal goblets
- White wedding china (plates and tea cup and saucers)
- Gold taper candle holders (similar to these)
- Ivory napkins
- DIY decoupage eggs
- Dyed eggs
- Painted beer bottle vases
I didn’t end up using all of the above in my tablescape, but I know I’ll mix and match in the coming years.
Filling in the Easter Decor Details
Before I shopped for new items, I had a general sense of what “look” I wanted based on my research:
- Faux florals/greenery
- Bunny/bird statues
- Easter plates with bunny or bird theme
- Metallic chargers
It all came together once I landed on the Easter centerpiece, as you’ll see below.
Easter Tablescape: Putting It All Together
When putting my table decor together, I always start with the centerpiece, in this case, my floral garland.
I opted to remove my DIY table runner for this occasion and use one long floral garland for my Easter brunch. While fresh flowers are absolutely lovely for a special celebration, I’ve become quite fond of faux florals these days.
I fell really hard for the floral garland you see below! We’re talking “double-heart-eyes-emoji” hard! It has a mix of hydrangeas, peonies, and zinnias, to name a few. Don’t you love the soft textures and twiggy branches on this baby? (Dreamy pause.)
There really wasn’t much to add beyond the garland, except for an Easter egg here or there. My twin boys were happy to sprinkle a few eggs around the branches. They LOVE helping me with my blog projects.
In the past, I’ve used a mix of mercury glass votives, mosaic pillar candle holders and taper candle holders for tablescapes. My latest obsession is taper candles.
I bought these brushed gold candle holders at Target last year, and I love using them for dining room table decor.
Easter Bunny Statues
I have a thing for Easter bunny figurines. There, I said it! These guys, with their long skinny feet, hopped right into my heart.
Easter Table Settings
The plates I found also look like Beatrix Potter designed them just for me. (Aww, thanks, Bea!) Seriously, they look like something straight outta Peter Rabbit.
Last summer, we had a real bunny in our backyard, and I’d have staring contests with him whenever we crossed paths. He looked a lot like this bunnies on these plates.
DIY Napkin Rings
Since I didn’t have just the right napkin rings for the occasion, I decided to DIY some with my Silhouette Cameo! I have a separate post that walks through how to make bunny napkin rings and includes free JPEG and SVG files to make your own.
I also found sweet porcelain egg cups that coordinated well with my place settings. They add just the right pop of color. I’m showing you examples of table settings with and without these accents because I realize some families may not use these for Easter brunch.
Still, it’s fun to see the possibilities.
In my bridal shower decor post, I talked about my love of gold chargers. You can always improvise with these substitutes (on the cheap) or buy a set of charger plates (investment item) to keep on hand.
This year, I decided to experiment with some new charger plates to bring out the golden hues in the plates. Pewter chargers would also look great.
Other Easter Decoration Ideas
With this foundation, I can always add or modify my Easter table with these other decor ideas:
- Bunny ear napkin folding — Origami, anyone?
- Mason jars with fresh flowers
- Cake stand with Easter treats
I also recently added two DIY Easter projects that you can easily incorporate into your tablescape or other vignettes:
- See how you can turn scrap wood into a wooden Easter bunny.
- Learn how to paint bottles and make cute dainty vases.

I’m so excited to gather my family around this Easter brunch table.

I hope you have a beautiful Easter with your loved ones as well, and I wish you many blessings this year!
Where did you find your bunny? I love it!
Thank you! I found him at Hobby Lobby the year before last. I think they had something similar this year, too. He is cute, isn’t he? -Crissy
Your Easter table is pretty with the flower runner and adorable Easter bunny. Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment on my blog. And for leaving the name of your blog. Since all the changes due to the European privacy laws and the whole world complying, it is hard to respond directly by email to people who leave comments on my blog.
I live in the countryside outside Fort Worth and wondered what part of Texas you live in. It is always fun to connect with a fellow Texas blogger.
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day,
Thanks so much for the sweet compliment! I remember meeting you as part of the Texas fall blog tour, and it’s so nice to reconnect.
I live in the Houston area, and I agree–it’s always fun to connect with fellow Texans!
I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day as well. Many blessings to you!
Lovely table setting! The gold candlesticks look so pretty with the floral garland. And the florals look like they were made to go with those plates. Pinning!
