Natural Table Setting

Carson Downing

This arrangement turns the table on the idea of ferns as filler foliage. Instead, the mass of fronds is the main event, with only a few tulips poking out. The fronds also lend their silhouettes to a DIY runner (made with stencils and fabric paint in a few shades of green) and stamped cards on leather napkin ties.

When the holiday is later in the spring, it can coincide with the first blooms of hydrangeas, which make a show-stopping Easter centerpiece either on their own or paired with other spring flowers. For an added pop of color, pair the flowers on a DIY ombre tablecloth for a gorgeous show of pastel hues.

Marbleized Pots with Daffodils

Adam Albright

An easy spray-paint technique transforms basic terra-cotta pots ($2, Walmart) into Easter table decorations worthy of your best crop of daffodils. The dry paint can still smell strongly for a few days, so we recommend doing this Easter craft at least a week in advance.

Give your Easter soiree a healthy dose of spring fever with season-appropriate colors and motifs. Combine vibrant greens and clean whites with the beige-browns found in light-tone woods and leather. Fern-motif stamps make it easy to add a detailed frond to tags and napkins; a gathering of pretty posies under a glass cloche makes an easy Easter centerpiece.

Paper Strip Nest Place Setting

Wendell T. Webber

Create a homemade Easter centerpiece idea with a simple paper-strip nest. Take a myriad of colored scrapbooking papers and shred them into tiny strips (a paper shredder works best). Form the paper strips into a ball large enough to fit an egg. Place a decorated Easter egg in the center of each ball, forming the strips into a nest around the egg. Let each guest know where they're sitting with a pretty monogram sticker.

Keep your Easter place settings simple and cheery with this pretty idea. Set a flowery plate atop a solid-color place mat.

For the finishing touch, add a gold-painted wooden Easter egg.

to show off the roots. Pair with yellow and orange ranunculus and tulips, or other spring flowers in similar tones from the

grocery store. Wash carrots thoroughly (but don't peel) before arranging to keep the water clean.

Vintage Easter Table Setting

Place setting with flowers and blue plate
Adam Albright

This vintage Easter place setting incorporates everything spring. A mix of vintage floral salad plates sits on top of dinner plates with a larger, simpler pattern. (They don't have to match, just go for similar colors.) A cloth napkin tied in a loose knot is an easy flourish.

Pastel Flower Bouquet with Eggs

Marty Baldwin

Bring Easter to your table with this dazzling flower-and-egg centerpiece. Place a clear drinking glass or thin vase in the center of a large-mouth jar or canister and stack Easter eggs (you can dye a dozen at a time in your Instant Pot ($100, Target) in just six minutes!) between the glass and the jar. Fill the glass with water and arrange flowers (we used roses, gerbera daisies, tulips, hyacinth, and bells of Ireland).

Red-and-Blue Easter Table Setting

King Au

This red-and-blue color combo works well for an Easter table when a red-dyed egg and tulip are placed at each table setting. A solid blue plate between two patterned red plates makes the setting pop. If you like, switch out the place card with a monogrammed hard-boiled egg to make the table even more festive.

Editor's Tip: To dye your Easter eggs a bright shade of red, use a few ingredients to make your own natural dye. Roughly chop a few beets (about 3/4 pound) and combine them with a quart of water, a tablespoon of vinegar, and a tablespoon of salt in a saucepan. Bring the ingredients to a boil; cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Strain and reserve the liquid for your dye.

Mini Bouquet Napkin Rings

Quentin Bacon

Elegantly wrapped napkins dress up the presentation of your Easter dinner table. To make the corsage collars, gather little posies of flowers and herbs and wrap stems with ribbon to secure. Cut a strip of paper about 7 inches long, notch the ends, and cut two slits about an inch from each end. Slip the posy stem through the slits to hold in place.

Flower Centerpiece with Asparagus

Jay Wilde

Sprinkle cheery pastels across your Easter table with a festive garden-inspired centerpiece. Hot-glue leaves made from scrapbooking paper to floral wire; attach wire to the stems of tulips and ranunculus. Nestle the blooms in a planter of wheatgrass to finish the centerpiece. Use floral wire and more paper leaves to make a matching DIY napkin ring. Pair with a light pink tablecloth that matches the color scheme. To finish, set out a bowl of candy Easter eggs in corresponding colors.

Easter Egg Table Garland

Helen Norman

Skip the expected Easter table runner and create this pretty blue-and-green Easter egg garland instead! To blow out an egg, use a pushpin to make a hole in each end. Gently push a wooden skewer through one end to enlarge the hole and break the yolk. Blow into the smaller hole to push out all the yolk and white. Use a beading needle threaded with a narrow ribbon to connect the eggs to display on your dining table for Easter.

Daisy Tablecloth and Table Setting

Helen Norman

There are two things that make this Easter table setting a true standout display: the creative floral arrangements and the tablecloth border.

To Make the Leafy Bouquets:

Add a few yellow roses in the center of beds of fresh lettuce for a budget-friendly spin on traditional Easter floral arrangements. The bright yellow roses are a showstopper against the vivid green.

To Make the Daisy Border:

Cloth in a springtime hue makes a gorgeous backdrop for the table arrangement. Create a dimensional border by hot-gluing scrapbooking daisies along the outer edges.

Stylish Easter Place Setting

Scott Little

In place of traditional bunnies, try a stylish bird theme for your Easter table. Light blue plates complement pink gingham placemats; break up the color palette with lace napkins. A nest of dried moss inside a birdcage becomes an easy centerpiece—accent it with pink blossoms (in florist's water picks) and pink gingham ribbon to match the place setting.

Splattered Easter Egg Place Card Holders

Blaine Moats

A flat-bottom wooden egg makes the perfect place card holder for Easter dinner. If the egg doesn't stand upright, sand the bottom flat until it does. Use a fine saw to cut a slit in the top of the egg. Paint the egg using light blue acrylic paint; let dry. Dip an old toothbrush into white acrylic paint, run your thumb across it to splatter-paint the egg; let dry. Spray the painted egg with a clear top coat.

Jay Wilde

Evoke the first signs of spring on your Easter table with this place setting. We chose a set of pretty green paper plates for the base and topped with a dyed egg and plain cloth napkin. The star of the show is the napkin ring featuring a small twig wreath wrapped with blue ribbon and adorned with a fresh-cut flower and a faux bird.

Pretty Spring Table Setting

Jay Wilde

This pastel pink-and-blue butterfly centerpiece is a pretty Easter table setting. To achieve this look, accent vases and place settings with paper butterflies (find similar ones at crafts supply stores) or other symbols that represent spring, such as birds or eggs. Fill small dishes with pink jelly beans and arrange pink napkins on blue plates. Pink hydrangea in a square vase makes for a great last-minute centerpiece.

To make this pretty place setting, fold a napkin into quarters and pinch the center to form a point. Put the pointed end into a glass and set a daffodil stem in a florist's tube inside the napkin. Pull the napkin's corners down to look like leaves.
