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.
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.
Here’s the Easter printable I created in a soft mint colour that reminds me of spring.
How to Create the Flag
- Click the image below to get the PDF (or download HERE).
- Print on cardstock using best quality setting on your printer.
- Cut out.
- Fold in half, then glue to a chopstick, skewer or popsicle stick.
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.
It’s so nice having this part of our Easter dinner all planned out. Now I just need to decide what’s on the menu!
These natural Easter decorations are so easy to put together!
Do you have your Easter tablescape planned out or do you throw it together last minute?
