Easter Tablescape for Spring 2019

Welcome to my Easter Tablescape for Spring. I love creating tablescapes around seasons, holidays or events. This endeavor not only gives me an opportunity to stretch my creative brain cells, but it also makes a pretty setting for our home.

If you are addicted to beautiful home decor magazines like I am, then this week is an opportunity for you to experience a virtual, visual magazine of lovely tablescape inspiration for your home ~ and it’s free! So pour yourself a glass of sweet iced tea, get comfy and enjoy the scenery.

Do you love tablescapes of different styles, colors, sizes, and themes? I hope this tablescape will start many ideas spinning in your head. Are you ready to create your own Easter tablescape? Let’s start hopping like a bunny through today’s Easter tablescape.

Easter Tablescape for Spring 2019

My vision for this Easter tablescape began a few weeks ago when I participated in the Pinterest Easter Challenge. A group of bloggers created Easter centerpieces inspired by a picture on Pinterest. You might want to revisit that post to refresh your memory. I loved my Easter centerpiece and there was no way that I wasn’t going to use it again for my Easter tablescape and throughout the Easter holidays.

I styled the Easter centerpiece and displayed it on our breakfast room table for a few weeks.

The Easter Tablescape Begins

First, I decided to leave the burlap tablecloth that I used for my green and white spring tablescape as my Easter tablescape base. I like it so much that I wanted to use it a little longer.

Sweet Shark helped me move it into the dining room. That concrete bunny is heavy! I did add 2 more bunnies from the bunny band set to the centerpiece. I also added 8 more darker pink tulips that I found in a basket in my office (I don’t even remember where or when I bought them.) to the vase for a little more fullness, height and color contrast.

The White Charger Story

Instead of placemats, I used large bright white chargers from Dollar Tree.

My local Dollar Tree didn’t have the white pearlized chargers in stock, so I went online and found them on the Dollar Tree website. I had never thought to order anything on the website. Wow! I ordered 2 sets of 4 ~ you have to order in sets ~ but they were still just $1 each. I also ordered 2 packages of the reindeer moss, which was out at the store. So I spent the same $10 I would have. BUT, I found that if you ship your purchases to the store, the shipping is free!

Now you know. You’re welcome. (Of course, if I’m the last person on earth to know this, you can roll your eyes at me.)

The Easter Place Settings

Next, I added my favorite mix of aqua, yellow and pink plates to provide more spring color. I bought the yellow and aqua plates a couple of years ago at Home Goods. The pink plates are from my favorite antique mall in Atlanta.

For silverware, I used our pearl~handled ones. I really did polish the knives, but they are very old and don’t seem to come as clean as I would like. Does anyone have any suggestions?

On a trip to Home Goods, I found these sweet bread and butter plates with a bunny design. I love the gingham rim in pink, blue, green and yellow. I bought 2 packages of 4, but only needed 6, so I didn’t use the ones with the yellow rim. Love that gingham.

I’ve been waiting to use these darling bunny napkin rings that I found last summer at the antique mall in McKinney, Texas. The napkins were an estate sale find several years ago. I have used them so many times that I really got my money’s worth.

You know that I love to embellish my Dollar Tree wine glasses with stencils. I used a mix of spring and Easter stencils (sold out) from A Maker’s Studio: flowers, bunnies and carrots. They add just that little bit of cuteness to an otherwise plain glass.

Looking at my table, I decided that the silverware looked a little lost and the place setting could use more color and pattern. Do you remember my green gingham napkins that I made for my spring tablescape? They would be perfect for making silverware caddies.

That made a big difference in the plate setting, providing more color, pattern and cohesiveness.

The Moss Story

At each end of the centerpiece, I added another bunny. First I laid a “bed” of green moss.

green moss

Let me tell you about this moss. I mentioned in an earlier post that we use a lot of this moss for finishing all arrangements. It provides the final professional look. For years, I’ve bought the moss at a local nursery for $16 a pound. Last summer the price went up to $24 a pound, which I kind of choked on.

Searching on Amazon, I found the same exact Super Moss for $29.99 ~ for 3 pounds!!

I ordered a box and it came last week. I can’t tell you how happy I am with it. When I opened the box, it smelled like freshly cut grass. The quality is excellent, and I would highly recommend this product. You can use the moss over and over if you are careful. (Just FYI, you would need to buy 6 8~ounce bags at $7.48 each to equal the same amount of Super Moss; that would be $44.88 ~ an almost $15.00 more and the Super Moss is a much better quality.)

TIP: Leave the moss inside the plastic covering and keep it in the box for storage. This will keep it fresh longer.

One of the bunnies is concrete from our backyard (I had to scrub him in the kitchen sink to clean him up.) and the other one is wooden. I used pink polka~dot ribbon from my stash to give them matching bows.

Easter centerpiece

Some of our existing eggs plus new ones I found on sale at Pier 1 surround the bunnies.

I remembered how I tied the corners of the tablecloth with gingham fabric (a reader favorite). I found 2 rolls of curly ribbon that I bought on sale at The Container Store over a year ago. I decided to go with the pastel colors  and they were perfect for tying up the corners of the tablecloth.

FYI: In case you didn’t know, The Container Store is a great resource for ribbon of all types and colors.

Finally, with my Easter tablescape complete, I only needed something sweet to make it ready for Easter.

Adding Sweetness to the Easter Tablescape

Last week, I participated in the annual charity luncheon for a women’s organization that I’ve belonged to for many years. In addition to the silent auction, bingo, and plant sale, every member has to bake for the bake sale. I made a Pink Champagne Cake that was so pretty. I decided to use the same recipe to make cupcakes (I had a bunch of frosting leftover that I wanted to use.)

So I made the cupcakes and used the leftover frosting. Sweet Shark sampled one and said it was delicious! You can’t see the cupcakes, but they are a pale pink. I used pink polka~dot baking cups that I bought a few years ago at Tuesday Morning.

Easter cupcakes

As pretty as these cupcakes are, I can’t leave a cupcake undressed! I made cupcake toppers for each one.

Of course, no Easter tablescape would be complete without pink lemonade to go with pink cupcakes.

I hope you enjoyed my Easter tablescape ~ complete with some of my favorite things: pastel colors, polka~dots, gingham, burlap, bunnies and cupcakes.

On my next post, I’ll show you how to make the cupcake toppers, the stenciled wine glasses, the silverware caddy, and some behind the design scenes of my tablescape.

I hope you’ll save this Easter tablescape idea for your own inspiration. Just go ahead and PIN it.

  11. Carol, yes, I am one of those rolling my eyes at buying at dollar tree on line. LOL I buy almost everything on line and have for over 20 years. In other words, I was country when country wasn’t cool. LOL . The only thing is,, many things you have to buy in larger quantities which is usually ok for me.
    Back to your lovely table. I love all the pastel colors. It screams Easter and brings back memories of my childhood.

  12. I’m looking forward to your cupcake recipe and I love how you displayed them. There are so many cute things in this post and the traditional color palette is heartwarming.

Thank you for all the easy tips and ideas and Happy Easter.

  13. Carol, I love your choice of multi-colored pastels and it works so well with gingham. Your centerpiece makes me feel like I am in a fairy tale Easter garden. Your cute Easter vase and tulips really is stunning, especially again the deep green color of the moss. I love the cupcake decor. It really adds that bit of storybook whimsy and is unique. So adorable! Happy Easter!

  14. Carol, You are so creative! I love all the layers of time and energy as well as delightful eye candy on this tablescape. Your centerpiece is so eye-catching. I love how you incorporated the concrete rabbit from your garden.
