Well, the eggs are boiled, the ham and casseroles are cooked, and the guests are invited. Easter dinner is well underway! If the next thing on your Easter to-do list is creating the perfect tablescape. From the simplest of settings, these Easter tablescape ideas will help you create a festive and memorable setting – and everything is almost right in your backyard. Take a look at these easy ways to make a beautiful table (and a festive one for the kids)!
Start with what’s in your own backyard. Branches, moss, anything you can find just hanging out in your yard can be turned into a masterpiece. Also, spring-colored dishcloths make for great table decor.
Bring on the eggs! Yes! Having an egg hunt? Use the eggs beforehand to place in your tablescape. Use some outdoor moss and it makes for a unique tablescape.
An easy way to spice up your table decor is with some festive place cards (seen below)! Instead of buying or reusing place cards from the store, print out your own unique ones this year. Add even more fun by customizing your printable place cards with your guests’ names. Simply print out the place cards, fold at the dotted line, fill in your guest’s name and place them around your table.
Now, let’s not forget the kiddos! Quick and easy. Spring color crayons and some torn-out pages of a coloring book can go a long way. Pick up some small games at a dollar store and a few festive hollowed eggs full of jelly beans or chocolate treats will keep the young ones busy for the entire event. Get creative and get colorful. Focus on the family and friends and let the tablescape take care of itself! Happy Easter, everyone!
