Easter is just around the corner, so I thought it would be fun to create a new tablescape for our family gathering. After this long harsh winter, nothing makes me happier than seeing the freshness and vibrancy of green mixed with natural elements of spring. This year’s Easter table is all about embracing simplicity.

Putting a table setting together for Easter can be cheap and cheerful. I always like to mix some old with a bit new in any decorating project to make it both interesting and budget-friendly. It’s all about layering and using materials with different textures and tones.

Easter Tablescape Ideas

I started with a basic table runner that I created out of a piece of cotton canvas. Tearing the edges and putting it through the washer and dryer was all it took to get the natural feel I was going for. You can also use this technique to create frayed edge napkins.

I set the table with my existing dishes and flatware, then layered some new yellow and white striped linen napkins that I wrapped in a bee-printed cotton ribbon. Isn’t it adorable?!

Wheatgrass Table Decorations

I topped the napkins with small peat pots that I filled with wheatgrass from the grocery store. As an option, you could use a regular small flower pot.

Then, I embellished the pots with jute string and a flag I printed out and attached to a chopstick (see instructions below). Here’s where you could mix it up a bit and use them as place card holders instead.

I plan on sending these Easter peat pots home with everyone as a small gift. Of course, there are so many peat pot crafts you could do with the leftovers.

Spring Florals

For the flowers, I used my green glass bottles I picked up at a thrift shop and filled them with bright pink tulips for a pop of colour. I love how the light shines through the glass, bringing a bit of sparkle to the table.

You could use any spring flowers, such as daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses and more. Look through your cupboards to see what you could use as vases.

Bird Nest Decor

In glass sugar bowls, I placed crinkle paper to replicate a bird’s nest and added some chocolate truffles that look like eggs. My husband and son didn’t realize they were edible (chocolate filled with hazelnut cream- yum!) Perhaps we’ll keep that our little secret on Easter Sunday!

Use what you already have on hand as your base (small bowl, cup or vessel). If you can’t find pretty chocolate eggs, use faux.

  1. so very very pretty…love the ribbon…(that’s the one I had ordered..ha)  everything looks beautiful Shauna…xo 

  2. Wow! I love everything! The eggs & nest are my favourite but everything works so well together and looks so fresh and springlike without going cheesy Easter-like. And I must get that bee ribbon!! I’ve always been drawn to bee illustrations and found out a few years ago that my name means ‘honey bee’ in greek….so figures. 

  3. I love everything about your table setting Shauna!  It’s so fresh and springy…I especially love your little grass pots and that bee ribbon is the cutest!!

  4. Beautiful ideas Shauna!  Simple, soft and lovely! Where did you find those pretty candy eggs (says the nutritionist, lol)? 

    1. Too funny, Karen. I picked them up at Indigo. I bought them mostly because they’re pretty, but Darren and Hayden HAD to try one, and they are tasty!

  5. I chuckled when I read that you were going for the ‘cheap and cheerful’ look but you are absolutely right. Your tablescape uses the simplest and most inexpensive items but is so stunning and tasteful. I love it. I’m going to check out the organic wheat grass. I love the look it creates. 

  6. I’m so pinning!  Love the bee embellishment, I’m a sucker for anything “bee” at the moment.

  7. Gorgeous Shauna! Your tablescape is so pretty and I love how you have used the tulips in glass containers and pots….everything looks so fabulous! You are so talented! Have a wonderful weekend! Angie xo

  8. I love the peat pots!!! So cute! My husband’s side of the family always gives each other some sort of plant as an Easter gift (lillies, tulips, etc.). This would be perfect for that! :)

  9. I love the idea of using peat pots in lieu of clay…I’m hosting Easter this year- I plan on stealing that idea.  :)

  10. Absolutely beautiful! Makes me wish we had a dining room where I could do this in. Where did you get the pots? I love them! And the ribbon is gorgeous!

  11. Your table setting is gorgeous, Shauna! It’s so bright and beautiful and elegant… I LOVE it! Your peat place setting is so lovely and fresh – and those truffle eggs? I want them. 


  12. Shauna, this is so stunning! I love everything about this from the tulips to the natural feeling to those precious vintage green glass bottles. I’m drooling over them! :)
