Setting your table for Easter is about so much more than a pretty spread to impress friends and family, as we all know. 

I love setting a beautiful table for this spring holiday because it symbolizes so much: hope for a fresh new season, new life, and the joy of celebrating with loved ones.

I’ve shared ideas for Easter flowers with you recently, as well- I hope you enjoy! 

Today I wanted to give inspiration for setting your table for this special spring celebration! Whether your family enjoys an Easter brunch or Easter dinner, we’ve got it covered with inexpensive, festive entertaining ideas.

Easy Easter Table Decor

You don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to set a gorgeous table for Easter! 

One of my best entertaining tips is to shop from your home. That’s right – I bet you already have so many items that could work for a beautiful table! 

A few of my most important items for entertaining are classics that I use throughout the year. You can simply switch out your centerpieces and linens for the pastel colors of spring, for a look that easily brings the outdoors in!

For example, my favorite investment pieces will last you for years and can be used throughout the seasons when chosen carefully!

Inexpensive Linens and Easter Table Runners

One of the easiest ways to dress up your table is with a special new table cloth or even a simple Easter table runner! 

I’ve shown you how to make the easiest DIY burlap table runner, and it works beautifully for your spring tables! The rustic touch of burlap blends so perfectly with charming Easter bunnies, eggs, nests, chicks and the like!

Sometimes you need more than an Easter table runner if you need to cover a full surface. Need to cover a plastic folding table, or simply want full coverage for your dining table to switch things up this year?

Another one of my favorite and incredibly inexpensive tricks for covering tables when you have a multitude of guests? Try using a canvas drop cloth

They are a great neutral color and are easily accessible. These work especially well when you’re setting up extra folding tables for guests. You can even bleach them using this technique from my friend Lisa at Farmhouse on Boone! 

Ultimately, I almost always choose to use something that I can use again down the road. For example, this Kalamkari block print tablecloth – it feels special but works well for a variety of occasions throughout the year!

Beautiful Centerpieces for Easter and Spring Tables

If you’ve been following along for long, you know how much I love adding fresh flowers to my entertaining, always. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion to celebrate! Fresh flowers breathe immediate life, color and joy into your home.

Easter Table Decor Ideas

I’ve got so many fun ideas for your Easter centerpieces and place settings! Check out the following inspiration! 

Using Easter Eggs in your Table Decor

One of the most classic and timeless elements of Easter is the egg. Of course it’s symbolic for new life and springtime joys, and it’s used in both natural formats and even with the childhood favorites of filled plastic eggs.

Using eggs in your table decorating takes them so far beyond the traditional Easter baskets!

Looking for a few ways to incorporate eggs into your Easter table decor? How about the following:

  • Use dyed eggs at every place setting for a sweet touch with a napkin and menu.
  • Use egg cups at each person’s spot for a hand-written name label so they know where to sit! 
  • Wooden eggs are a charming addition when placed inside simple glass vases or even tucked into inexpensive little nests as an Easter centerpiece or throughout your decor.
  • Tuck a single egg (fresh or faux) into individual tea cups or egg cups at each place setting. It’s the simplest addition to your diy Easter decor! 
  • Setting a kid’s table? Fill a plastic egg at each place setting with a special treat of Easter candy or a tiny gift!
