3 Easy Ways to Style a Table For Easter

Whether you are hosting or just decorating there are a few ways to decorate different tables for Easter.

How Do You Set Up a Table for Easter?

Setting a table for Easter can be a fun and creative way to celebrate the holiday as the family gathers around.

Here are some easy ideas to help you set up a beautiful Easter table.

  • Choose a color scheme. Pastel colors or pretty neutrals are perfect options for creating a beautiful Easter table.
  • Select a tablecloth or table runner that complements your color scheme.
  • Add chargers, placemats and linen napkins that coordinate with your tablecloth and color scheme. Try to use organic materials and fabrics that add texture and dimension.
  • Use fresh flowers. Easter is a perfect time to use fresh flowers as a centerpiece. You can use a floral arrangement in the middle of the table or place individual flower stems in small vases or jars along the table.
  • Easter decorations are totally optional. If you love bunnies, baby chicks and Easter eggs, then add them to your table or centerpiece.
  • Set the table with gorgeous dinnerware and glassware. Feel free to mix and match old and new. And use your best dinnerware and glassware to make the occasion feel special.
  • Add ambiance with pretty candles to add that welcoming touch.

How Do You Decorate a Coffee Table for Easter?

If you want to add an Easter touch to your living room, make a simple centerpiece for the coffee table.

Here are some ideas to decorate your coffee table for Easter.

  • Soften the table with a beautiful table runner. Choose a table runner that complements your color scheme and sets the tone for your Easter decorations.
  • Add a centerpiece that creates a focal point for your coffee table. You can use a vase filled with fresh flowers or plants, a birdhouse, a basket filled with Easter eggs, or decorative bunny figures.
  • Tuck in some Easter-themed decorations like small Easter baskets, colorful Easter eggs, and bunny figures. Keep it simple though and don’t overdo it. Sometimes less is more.
  • Add ambiance and height with candles.
  • Incorporate natural elements like twigs, moss, or grass to add texture and depth to your Easter coffee table decorations.
  • Place books or magazines with Easter themes on your coffee table. I like to use recent issues of Better Homes and Gardens, Cottages and Bungalows, Fine Gardening, and Garden Gate Magazine. This not only adds to the decor but gives your guests something to read or look at.

Remember to keep the decorations simple and not overcrowd the table. You want to create a festive and welcoming atmosphere without making it look cluttered.

How Do You Decorate an Easter Buffet?

If you are hosting a buffet for Easter this year, here are some ideas for decorating the table.

  • Choose a color scheme.
  • Use tablecloths and table runners that coordinate with your color scheme to create a colorful and cohesive look for your buffet.
  • Add a centerpiece to your buffet table. This can be a vase filled with fresh flowers, a birdhouse, a bunny figure, or an Easter-themed arrangement.
  • Use tiered serving dishes to add height and dimension to your buffet table. This will make it easier for guests to see and reach the food.
  • Add Easter-themed decorations that can be placed around the table or used as part of the centerpiece.
  • Use festive plates, cups, and utensils that pair with your color scheme or are decorated with Easter designs.
  • Use beautiful linen napkins that complement your color scheme. You can fold them creatively or use napkin rings to add an extra touch of elegance.

Keep the decorations simple and do not overcrowd the buffet table. While you want it to look pretty, the focus is on the food, not an overwhelming Easter buffet display.

Simple Centerpiece for the Easter Table

Let’s face it. Sometimes we just don’t want to do a whole lot of work for a centerpiece and that’s OK. You don’t have to go all in on several hours of cutting and arranging flowers.

Instead, head to the grocery store and pick up Easter flowers of your choice. For this simple centerpiece idea, I decided to go with fresh-cut tulips in two shades of pink from the market.

And it couldn’t be easier to style.

When you bring your flowers home from the grocery store, make sure you give them a fresh cut at a 45-degree angle so they can take in as much water as possible. Then drop them in a container filled with fresh water.

For this centerpiece, I’m going super simple with a glass vase that I had laying around. And then decorated the table around this super simple centerpiece.

And I love how those tulips look! They look so elegant and beautiful in the dining room.

A word about tulips though. They droop after some time in a vase. If you like the look of that, don’t worry about it. But if you want them to remain upright, there are a few ways to keep them from drooping.

  1. Drop a copper penny in the water and that will perk them up.
  2. Stick a pin near the top of the bloom in the stem. (My good friend Jennifer from Cottage on Bunker Hill taught me this one – I had not known it before!)
