How to Make a Blooming Bunny Easter Table

What is more iconic at Easter than bunnies? From toddlers to teens to grownups, bunnies are our favorite easter decoration. Let’s invite some bunnies over for Easter dinner to decorate our table and make it a blooming bunny Easter table.

I love celebrating Easter. Whether you use these bunny Easter table ideas this year or not for Easter entertaining, I hope that you will PIN them for future years.

I’ve combined the old and the new in this year’s Easter table for a bright, light, and springtime vibe.

I love to decorate our home for Easter. Since I love pastels, it’s the perfect time to bring out as many pretty spring colors as possible. I love bunnies and bows, place cards and peonies, so you can guess what other elements this Easter table has going for it.

The first step is to decide if you are going to use placemats or a tablecloth. I love to use both, but for this Easter table, I wanted as much color as possible so I opted for my aqua tablecloth from HomeGoods.

TIP: Always be sure to iron your tablecloth for a seamless, wrinkle-free base.

I love to use my padded ironing pad for tablecloths and larger pieces of fabric. If you place it on your table, be careful – no high heat and don’t press down too hard. If you have a table with wood veneers and it’s an antique, I would do this on a kitchen counter.

I actually don’t mind ironing.

Place the tablecloth on your table and immediately smooth out any remaining wrinkles.

Once my tablecloth was on the table, I brought in the Easter basket centerpiece that I made and shared last week. It’s one of my favorites. I made a video of the entire process, which only took 15 minutes. It’s on the post.

As usual, I gathered all the dishes and other items that I would need in this tablescape. Here I have:

  • white chargers from Dollar Tree
  • pink melamine plates from Tuesday Morning
  • white salad plates from an estate sale
  • bunny plates from Pier 1

Setting the Easter Table

Now I am ready to set the table. My table will be for 6, so I placed 6 chargers around the table. Keep your eye on the sweet white plates with the “dotted~swiss” pattern. They were an estate sale buy.

Next came the pink melamine places. I’m so happy that I found these at Tuesday Morning (sadly, my closest Tuesday Morning recently closed). They were a set of 4 places for $9.99 and I bought 2 sets. I even love how they were packaged.

The plastic bands can be used again for storing the plates. Notice the pretty little pink tag? You know that I’m going to keep it, right?

The bunny plates would be used as a bread and butter or dessert plate. I decided to once again use the mother-of-pearl-handled flatware that belonged to Sweet Shark’s grandmother.

In my original vision, I had planned to use the “dotted-swiss” salad plates.

I realized that our everyday china Manior by Villeroy & Boch matched the scalloped edge of the pink melamine plates, so I decided to use those instead.

I had the perfect glassware in mind: my antique mall Fiesta glasses ~ one of the best finds ever.

For napkins, I wanted to again use the bright pastel ones that I bought years ago and Crate and Barrel.

I first stuffed them in the glasses. This method gives the table a great pop of color, but the fabric is very soft and didn’t have enough body to stand up.

On to plan B. I also only had 1 of the blue napkins. I decided to use 2 pink, 2 aqua, and 2 yellow.

Head slap here. I remembered my Easter bunny napkin rings that I bought a couple of years ago at the McKinney Antique Mall. I had to use them again.

This was much better.

Finishing Touches on the Easter Table

I have told you before that I love using place cards and I always try to include a little DIY in every tablescape.

Remember the tags that came with the pink melamine plates? They were a perfect size and shape for a place card.

I looked through my plastic boxes of cardstock (I have 6 organized by color.) and found a package of pink patterned paper that had never been opened.

I picked the pattern that I liked best for this Easter table. Then I used the original tag as a pattern and traced around it.

Next, I turned them over and used my hand-lettering skills to write my guests’ names on them with Sharpie markers. I did say that this is a pretend Easter tablescape.

Then I used some of my curly ribbon to tie a tag to each glass. I need some more to have on hand. I found this set of 10 rolls that I’m going to order.

One more thing. I found another bag of cherry blossoms left from last year, so I tucked a sprig in each of the napkin rings and in and around the Easter basket centerpiece.

Setting the Easter table took longer than creating the Easter basket centerpiece, but the finished look was bunny~perfect.

I invited a couple of my Easter friends to join us. That’s Jelly Rabbit on the right.

If this were a real Easter table, I would have pastel macarons and pink and green and aqua iced cookies, and strawberry ice cream.

I do hope that you’ve enjoyed this tour of my Easter table and that it has brightened your day and made you smile. And, of course, I hope that you will PIN it for next year’s inspiration.

Happy Bunny Day.
