Easter is one of my favorite holidays, and I love to plan a special lunch and tablescape. As I started thinking through what I would put together for our table this year, I thought it would be fun to share a few ideas with you, and show you how to incorporate the last few DIY projects we shared on the blog—like these paper flowers and aged pots.
Using the aged pots with paper flowers DIY (link to post here) as a centerpiece option is unique and fun for the kids. If you’re short on time or not up for a project, fresh tulips from the supermarket in clear vases are an easy way to tie in spring.
One detail that is always a hit is personalizing each setting with a place card. It seems no matter how many times the kids sit in their exact same seats, they always feel extra special when they see their name written across a place card. This year I’m using these tags we shared in a DIY blog last week (link here). I love how dainty they look (and how simple they are to make). To create layers, incorporate chargers or a nest at each setting.
Just like with design, I love the blend of old and new, so I have my antique staples in my cabinet like my silverware, pink and green glasses, and napkin rings that I like to mix in with new elements like clean linens, dishes, and a fresh centerpiece.
My collection of pewter napkin rings and silverware are all different and nothing matches, but that’s actually why I like them so much. They bring in a lot of character, and I love that balance next to the white dishes and linen napkins.
I hope these ideas will give you inspiration for your spring tablescape or Easter lunch. It always feels exciting to me when spring comes back around and I’m able to dress up my table with pretty details like these.
Comment below and let me know what your favorite Easter traditions are—I’d love to hear them. Have a happy Easter, friends!
