Hang DIY paper eggs, wood-bead bunnies, and marbled butterflies from painted branches arranged in a DIY rope vase for eye-catching color and texture. To make this vase, carefully wrap rope around a glass vase, hot-gluing rope to itself as you go. Continue wrapping until the vase is completely covered. Once finished, remove the vase and neatly hot glue the rope tail to the top of the rope vase. Place branches and spring decor in the vase for a picture-perfect Easter centerpiece!

Natural Table Setting

This arrangement upends the idea of ferns as bouquet fillers. Instead, the mass of fronds is the main event, with only a few tulips as an accent. The fronds also lend their silhouettes to a runner (made with stencils and fabric paint in a few shades of green) and stamped cards on leather napkin ties.

When the holiday arrives later in the spring, it can coincide with the first hydrangea blooms, which make a showstopping Easter centerpiece, either on their own, or paired with other spring flowers. For an added pop of pastel color, make your own ombré tablecloth.

Marbleized Pots with Daffodils

An easy spray-paint technique transforms basic terra-cotta pots into Easter table decorations worthy of your best crop of daffodils. The dry paint can continue to have a strong smell for a few days, so we recommend painting at least a week in advance.

Simply cut and arrange a few fresh pansies in low wooden vases. Display the bouquets on a wood board, and if you're feeling extra-festive, tuck in a few decorated Easter eggs.

This dramatic, romantic Easter table starts with flowers. Bright blue cut-glass compotes contrast with the soft arrangements of ranunculus, hellebores, poppies, and Juliet garden roses. A grid of florists tape over the top of each compote holds the stems in place.

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

Wendell T. Webber

Create a lovely Easter place setting with a simple paper-strip nest. Take colored scrapbooking papers and shred them into tiny strips (a paper shredder works best). Form the strips into nests, and place a dyed Easter egg decorated with a pretty place-card monogram sticker in the center of each nest.

Keep your Easter place settings simple and cheery with this pretty idea. Set a flowery plate atop a solid-color place mat. We used coral to match the flowers, but you can get creative.

David A. Land

This centerpiece plays up the sunny colors of carrots. You'll need them with their greens still attached and a clear vase to show off the roots. Pair the carrots with yellow and orange ranunculus, tulips, or other spring flowers in similar tones. Wash the carrots thoroughly (but don't peel them) so that the water in the vase stays clear.

This vintage Easter place setting incorporates everything you love about spring. Vintage floral salad plates sit atop 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.

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

Red and Blue Easter Table Setting

King Au

This Easter table setting in red and blue works well when a red-dyed egg and red tulip decorate each place. A solid blue plate between two patterned red ones makes the colors pop. You can swap the more traditional place card for a monogrammed hard-boiled egg.

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

Quentin Bacon

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

Jay Wilde

Sprinkle cheery pastels across your Easter table with a festive garden-inspired centerpiece. Hot-glue scrapbooking paper leaves to floral wire, attach the wires to the stems of tulips and ranunculus, and nestle the blooms in a planter of wheatgrass. Use more wire and paper leaves to make napkin rings and pair them with a light pink tablecloth. Set out bowls of candy eggs in corresponding colors.

Easter-Egg Table Garland

Helen Norman

Skip the expected table runner and create this pretty blue and green Easter-egg garland. 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 raw egg, then use a beading needle threaded with a narrow ribbon to create the garland.

Daisy Tablecloth and Table Setting

Helen Norman

There are two things that make this Easter table setting a true standout: the creative floral arrangements and the tablecloth border. To make the bouquets, place a few yellow roses in the centers of beds of fresh lettuce. To make the border, hot-glue scrapbooking paper daisies along the tablecloth's edges.

Stylish Easter Place Setting

Scott Little

In place of traditional Easter bunnies, give your table a stylish bird theme. Light blue plates complement pink gingham place mats. Break up the color palette with white lace napkins. A nest of dried moss inside a birdcage becomes an easy centerpiece—accent it with pink blossoms (in florist's water tubes) and 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 won't stand upright, sand the bottom flat until it does. With a fine saw, cut a slit in the top of each egg. Use light blue acrylic paint to color the eggs, then, once they're dry, dip an old toothbrush into white acrylic paint and run your thumb across the bristles to spray flecks across the blue background. Finish with a clear top coat.

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 yellow daffodil (in a florist's tube) inside the napkin. Pull the napkin's corners down to look like leaves.
