Vintage Charm

Charm the socks off your Sunday brunch guests with this darling table display. Dust off your heirloom china, and pair it with your thrift-store scores to create a curated and whimsical place setting. Garnish each plate with a vibrant mix of garden blooms, overflowing from a teacup.

Accessorize With Eggs

Let nature be your biggest inspiration when recreating this stunning, spring centerpiece. We’re drooling over the pairing of the texture-rich nests with delicate, hand-dyed pastel eggs. Select fluffy spring blooms that coordinate with the hues of your eggs to create a cohesive tablescape design.

Friends of the Season

Pull out your grandmother’s Chinoiserie vase, and pick up your favorite pastel posies to recreate this sweet spring centerpiece. Add textured grass as a base, and give the table a distinct, Easter design by incorporating little birds and bunnies throughout the display.

Sunny Bunny Chic

Imagine breaking bread on Easter Sunday at this festive dining display. The buttery-yellow-and-white tablecloth features a preppy lattice pattern and hosts bunnies, galore. We adore the fresh white tulips, miniature egg baskets and the vibrant pops of green grass used throughout.

Tots + Polka-Dots

Serious question: How does an adult earn a seat at this table? Eating Easter egg sweets and biting heads off of chocolate bunnies has never looked so chic! A crisp, white tablecloth with punchy pink dots give this kids’ table a polished look while the sunny lattice stools and porcelain bunny centerpiece add whimsical flair.

Nature-Inspired Items

Bringing nature-inspired elements to the table represents spring perfectly. ALM Chandler of Her Royal Heinous incorporated various affordable finds to create an informal look. The wooden ants are the inspiration for the table, and the grass slab, sitting on top of a white candy dish, is actually a tablecloth found online. To draw the eye upward, Amelia hung a robin's egg wreath on the chandelier. Add feminine touches to the table, such as pears sitting in delicate floral glass teacups, for a light, refreshing spring look.

Carrot Polka Dot Theme

Patterned fabric carrots set the tone for this orange-and-white polka dot theme tablescape by Courtney and Phronsie Dial of Pizzazzerie. Group the carrots together and place them in a large glass vase for an easy yet exceptional centerpiece. Courtney and Phronsie paired it with whimsical accessories, such as the dog made with small flowers, polka dot miniature Easter baskets and other theme-friendly accessories. White tulips in milk glass vases enliven the table, and orange soda in pear-shaped glasses embellished with paper rabbit printouts and green-and-white striped straws coordinate with the theme.

Outdoor Charm

Having an outdoor brunch is a great way to celebrate Easter. To create a charming cottage look, Kim Stoegbauer of The TomKat Studio spray-painted a faux tree white and surrounded it with pastel yellow and blue eggs. Embellish the look with coordinating pastel accessories such as ceramic birds and novels.

Miniature Dessert

For a delicious and chic Easter dessert, Courtney and Phronsie filled miniature martini glasses with carrot cake. To create the look, fill the glass with a layer of crumbled carrot cake. Top it with a layer of cream cheese frosting, and repeat the layers. To finish the look, use orange and green icing to create a carrot shape, and tie an orange ribbon around the base of the glass for a pop of orange. Displaying the dessert on white dishes creates a striking contrast that makes a stylish statement.

Simple Yet Dramatic

This simple-to-create spring tablescape from Kate Riley of Centsational Girl fits with any style home. To bring the outdoors in, Kate filled a tall clear glass vase with manzanita branches for a dramatic statement. Decorate with blue eggs and accessories to stand out against the stark white tableware.

Pink Accents

A brown tablecloth and charger plates serve as the backdrop for this dainty table setting. Tamara Nelson of The Gypsy's Corner paired pink Bordallo cabbage plates and bowls with cream-and-brown toile plates for each guest's place setting. Pink accessories, such as glass sundae dishes, eggs and cherry blossoms counterbalance the dark brown tablecloth. "A small basket with faux flowers and an egg makes a nice favor to give to guests, and cream candleholders and egg cups help balance the color theme," she says.

Peep Vase Centerpiece

Incorporate the classic Easter treat, Peeps, into your tablescape. Place a Mason jar inside a square clear glass vase, add layers of jelly beans, one color at a time, and add Peeps on top. Place flowers inside the jar for a cute and easy Easter centerpiece.

Delectable Centerpiece

Creating an Easter centerpiece can be easy and delicious. Courtney and Phronsie filled a small bowl with floral foam and covered it with paper grass filling as the base. To create cupcake skewers, stick miniature carrot cupcakes on top of old-fashioned candy sticks. "Simply top the cupcake with a bit of orange and green icing into a mini carrot shape," Courtney says. Place mini whoopie pies with an orange egg on bamboo skewers for a layered look. "You can't go wrong with this sweet centerpiece, so add in fun treats on sticks until you have your desired arrangement," she says.

Rustic and Sweet

To create a rustic tablescape, Tamara placed a large hurricane glass vase inside a vintage birdcage and filled it with faux eggs in creams, greens and browns. Scatter extra eggs and a faux bird's nest around the pedestal base, and set a light green tablecloth as the background. Mixing and matching dishes allows for flexibility when decorating. "It makes a great impact and is friendly on the wallet, and a simple ribbon can dress up everyday glassware to match a specific color theme," Tamara says. Place small chocolate rabbits in bowls as decor and sweet take-home treats for guests.

Mix and Match Patterns

Start with the centerpiece when creating a whimsical tablescape. Wrap jars and metal cans with bold, floral wrapping paper, and fill with plants such as Spanish moss and tulips. Choose containers of varying heights, and place them all the way down a table runner. Spice it up with dinnerware in polka dots and stripes in coordinating colors. Design by Kim Foren

Spring-Inspired Table Setting

For a centerpiece with height, fill glass cake pedestals with moss, and place ironstone pitchers on top. Fill the pitchers with pastel-colored flowers from the grocery store.

DIY Bird's Nest Place Setting

Bring spring indoors with an easy-to-craft decorative bird's nest you can whip up in no time. Fill the realistic-looking nest with painted robin's eggs, dyed eggs or Easter candy.

Peep Place Card for Easter Brunch

Place a Peep inside a sanitized eggshell filled with Easter grass, and place inside an eggcup. Finish with a handwritten name card.

Fabric Flower Pom Place Setting

Citrus Alfresco Easter Brunch

Take your dining table and chairs outside, and dine alfresco. Combine florals with citrus accents to create a springy and elegant Easter tablescape. Design by Sara Westbrook & Brittany Egbert; Photography by Nicole Hill Gerulat

Melon-Colored Accents

Skip the traditional pinks, greens and yellows and opt for melon-colored accents. Choose a flower arrangement that has subdued oranges, greens and reds as the centerpiece. To enhance the color palette, tie ribbons in these colors on the back of each chair. Design by Kim Stoegbauer

Bird-Themed Tablescape

Michael West embellished a simple tole tray with bird-themed items to create a bold Easter centerpiece. Add a layer of florist's moss and incorporate accessories you already have in your home. Michael decorated with tall candlesticks, a birdhouse, plastic eggs, ceramic birds and tiny nests. Simple white tableware with bird motifs enhances the theme.

Whimsical Pastels

This Easter tablescape, designed by Susan Herin of Between Naps on the Porch, is centered on a whimsical Easter bunny. Paper "grass" and glitter pastel faux eggs surround the bunny for an extra touch of playfulness. Fill small pastel ceramic baskets with candy eggs as a name card holder and take-home treats for guests. Paperwhite daffodils in a rectangular wicker basket add dimension and a sweet scent to the table.

Cottage-Style Color Palette

Choose a favorite pastel and utilize it to its fullest potential. No matter what shade you end up using, this soft approach will transform any table into a charming spring tablescape. Break it up a bit with some pops of bright white and contrasting neutral hues.

Makeshift Buffet Table

Don't have a good buffet table? Try this designer trick: Take a hollow-core door or thick piece of plywood, and lay over evenly-spaced sawhorses, cover with fabric and voila — a beautiful buffet table with plenty of serving space that can be broken down again and stored when the party's over.

Grocery Store Centerpiece

While you're at the grocery store shopping for your Easter brunch, pick up a few floral bunches in springy shades from the floral department. Here, we paired peach, orange and yellow ranunculus with white stock and statice for a pretty pastel arrangement. Place inside a white metal bucket with fingerprint accents in complementary colors. The kids will love helping with that part!

Egg-cellent Place Card

Your Easter guests will love this tiny terrarium that serves double duty as a place card and take-home favor.

Swap Succulents for Blooms

Choose succulents for a centerpiece you can keep out long after Easter. They do well in direct sunlight and when planted together en masse. A shallow container, sandy, well-draining soil and an eye for combining succulents of various colors and shapes are all you need to create a stunning centerpiece that will look great for many months to come.

Embellish Silverware

Tying a simple ribbon around flatware adds a special touch to any traditional setting. Take it to the next level by tucking in a sprig of lavender or any small flower to coordinate with the pastel color palette and reap the added benefit of a beautiful fragrance in the room.

Budget-Friendly Centerpiece

Break out the hand-me-down dishes to stylishly set the table with your favorite mix-and-match pieces and glassware. Add color with an abundance of spring blooms plucked from the backyard.
