Get egg-spired with these gorgeous quick and easy Easter tablescapes.

This year has gone by fast – it’s already April and Easter is just around the corner. With the long weekend coming up, chances are you’ll be rushing to get work done in time, or get the kids sorted that the last thing on your mind is setting up your table. But to leave the stress behind and create a memorable holiday, you’ll want to set the tone with an unforgettable Easter tablescape, and luckily we’ve got five fabulous, easy ideas that look so good even the Easter bunny will want to hang around.

Midas Touch

Everyone loves a little sparkle, and a touch of gold instantly lifts a table setting. It also helps that Lindt bunnies do half the work for us.

Colour Palette: White + Pastel Pink, or Blues + Gold.

Must Haves:

  • Layered and decorative crockery
  • Simple and sparse florals – think tulips as they look effortless and let the gold shine
  • An edible table runner made of gold wrapped chocolate eggs – everyone will love you for this
  • Different sized porcelain bunnies
  • Simple cutlery
  • Plain linen napery
  • Lindt bunnies and loads of them

Moss & More

You can find moss bunnies everywhere, even Woolworths are selling them, so we might as well use them on our table this Easter. Not only are they cute (and affordable!), they add a whimsical and enchanting Alice in Wonderland feel to your table, making it the perfect focal point for your luncheon.

Colour Palette: White + Pink + Green + Gold

Must Haves:

  • Patterned crockery and napery
  • Layered mixed textures: linens, wood, moss, cane, grasses
  • Nouveau wine glasses and gold cutlery
  • Mix of moss and porcelain bunnies
  • Cane Easter baskets

Marvellous Metallic

Dying eggs can be a real fiddley job. Lucky for us most homeware stores have jumped on the metallic-egg-bandwagon and sell packets of dyed eggs in a whole range of colours. Grab some in textured blues and pinks, and cooler tones to really make them stand out.

Colour Palette: White + Pink + Blue + Gold + Speckled or Marble patterns

Must Haves

  • Bare table (marble or dark wood work best)
  • Simple beveled crockery
  • Metallic and sleek cutlery
  • Variety of matte and glossy eggs, varying in size
  • Full flowers in ombre shades

Orange Is The New…

Easter is the one time when it’s acceptable to splash orange on everything. The carrot colour palette adds a burst of happiness, fun and life to any tablescape. It’s the perfect setting for those who have little Easter Egg Hunter’s at their table.

Colour Palette: Orange + Green + White + Neutrals

Must Haves

  • Bright linen or gingham tablecloth
  • White crockery
  • Orange and green hessian chair bows
  • Twine wrapped carrot decorations
  • Artificial grass, matts or table runners
  • A mix of porcelain or plush bunnies
  • Lindt chocolate carrot sticks
  • Easter baskets

Eggs-ellent Shells

We sometimes forget that some of the best decorations for Easter live in our fridge. Eggs and their shells can be turned into the perfect centrepieces, place cards and ornaments.

Colour Palette: Ivory + Green + Neutrals

Must Haves

  • The patience to carefully crack and clean out the eggs
  • Sturdy, thin, simple florals and stems
  • Twine, thin twigs and vines to create nests
  • Small patterned chicken feathers
  • Egg cartons, wicker or wire baskets as centrepiece staples

As you can see Easter doesn’t have to be tedious or expensive. We hope these table settings have sparked the inner stylist in you to create a fabulous spread to impress your family and guests.
