Planning an Easter celebration can be quite daunting. We want to help you WOW your guests with a gorgeous dining table that encompasses the elements of spring. From napkin rings to flatware—every carefully selected accoutrement can make your dinner table a little extra special. We’ve put together a simple guide with a few pieces to help inspire you when designing your Easter tablescape.
DRAW INSPIRATION FROM NATURE
Embrace the spring season, and include elements inspired by nature on your table. Make your setting warm and inviting by using wood and flowers. Napkin rings and place card holders are an easy way to execute this subtly. Whether you prefer vibrant hues or earthy tones, doing this will invigorate you and your guests with the magic of spring.
DESIGN A DINNER MENU
Place an individual menu on each place setting at the table. It’s an affordable way to make your dinner table look elegant. Use an online program such as Canva to design your menu. Easily print them out at home on some quality stock paper, or have them printed at your local print & copy center.
VIBRANT CHINA PATTERNS
By simply adding a patterned plate with a vibrant color, you can take your table setting skills to the next level. Both online and traditional brick & mortar stores have many varieties to choose from. Don’t worry about them matching as a perfect set. Pick and choose whatever speaks to you–just as long as the patterns are cohesive.
CANDLES TO HELP SET THE MOOD
Candles are perfect for setting a pleasant ambiance. Use a variety of unscented candles when placing them around the table. The key here is different heights and sizes. This will create a sense of depth, which is very appealing to the eye. Try putting out a few tealight, votive, and pillar candles.
As for color, keep it simple. Stick to only two to three different colors at the most that pair well with your color scheme.
EXPERIMENT WITH FLATWARE
There are so many choices in flatware today, which are easily accessible–and affordable too! Shake it up this Easter holiday! Select a set that has a vintage inspired design like the photo above. Or go for a tone that compliments a specific aspect of your tablescape. Perhaps the gold trim on the glassware? Or maybe the design on your napkins? The idea is to have to fun!
HAVE DESSERT SERVE A DOUBLE PURPOSE
The best kind of dessert is a functional one. Maximize table space and please everyone’s eyes by using a hand-crafted treat made of fresh fruit and real chocolate. Make the Easter Bunny Celebration™ With Easter Berries arrangement a beautiful centerpiece to tie your table together. Another option is to intricately place either chocolate dipped strawberries or Spring Chicks on small pedestals and plates. It’ll add a festive flare, pop of color, and will be a great conversation starter.
