At our house, Easter is favorite opportunity to create a festive and memorable table. While we celebrate the true meaning of Easter and that is what is most significant to us about the holiday, we also enjoy the traditional Easter decorations such as painted eggs and cute little bunnies. It feels great to put away the more wintry decor and set up vignettes in spring colors. You can see our Spring Table all decorated right here! The Easter table is one of our most memorable of the year.
Easter Sunday our family expects the Easter bunny to stop by and hide candy while we are at the morning service at church. Once we return home, just before brunch, the kids run around the house with their Easter baskets gathering up the eggs and candies hidden throughout the main rooms of the house. Our Easter bunny is pretty sneaky about hiding the candy and we usually find some of it the following winter. Nothing like a petrified jelly bean stuck to the back of a drawer in mid-November.
Here are a few ideas I found at Better Homes & Gardens that might get our wheels turning for some creative table decorations!
You could use just about any candle holder to showcase eggs!
The tulips and white eggs look so pretty in a clear glass bowl.
I love this fresh and natural looking centerpiece.
These little baskets look adorable tied to the back of a chair!
Of course, a nest always looks like spring! Fill it with some candy eggs!
Using wheatgrass from a pet store makes the perfect soft bed for an egg placecard.
You can’t go wrong with a chocolate bunny. Being able to eat your decorations is always a bonus in my world.
Creating a sweet “egg” tag to tie on a napkin is something even I could do.
