Set the scene for a special celebration with this fun & festive Easter tablescape.
I had a fun conversation with a friend over facebook messenger the other day.
She commented that she doesn’t like to do seasonal tablescapes since it costs so much money to do them…
I laughed real hard, and explained that I rarely buy anything new. I have a few staples that I use over and over again. With just a few adjustments – Boom! A completely new look.
Come on in and I’ll show you what I mean…
How to Set a Fun & Festive Easter Tablescape
(using things you already have!)

1. Make a table runner out of paper!
For this particular table setting, I used a roll of natural kraft paper and added a scalloped edge. But, don’t overthink this! You can use whatever type of paper you have. Wrapping paper, wallpaper, or shelf paper would work just fine.
To add a little pop to the rustic brown paper, I layered over a vintage dresser scarf that used to be my mom’s.
2. Look for items in your cupboards that you can layer to make a centerpiece.
Similar to the 5 minute farmhouse centerpiece, this centerpiece was quickly crafted using:
All of these items were just sitting in my decor closet. When put together, they look like it was planned all along!;)
3.Use “fillers” on either side of the centerpiece to add interest to the table top
A vintage sewing machine drawer and a branch flower box filled with faux plants are the perfect size for this simple farmhouse tablescape.
4. Fold the napkins for a fun feature
Aren’t these bunny ear napkins just the cutest?? I got the idea from Sand & Sisal, and added my Grandma’s vintage Easter egg candles in the center.
If you don’t have Easter egg candles, dyed Easter eggs, plastic eggs, or wooden eggs would work, too.
Use neutral colored dishes and let the napkins be the pop of seasonal color
You may notice that I almost always use the same white dishes in all my tablescape ideas. When you live in a small space like we do, there isn’t room for multiple sets of dishes!
White dishes are a perfect backdrop for every season. Colored napkins, layered with checked and striped cotton dishtowels can make the plates fit with all seasons.
Likewise, the woven plate chargers seem to always be appropriate for the casual farmhouse tablescapes I’m drawn to. They get pulled out of the cupboard a lot!
