Easter Tablescape Ideas
Spring is a season of renewal and growth. So, a light blue and green palette is perfect for welcoming your guests and setting the table with a fresh, spring-inspired look.
Easter is a time to pause, celebrate, and count our blessings and loved ones.
Below are some tips and ideas for creating a beautiful table incorporating these soft-hued colors and pampering your family and friends.
Selecting a Color Scheme
Mixing shades of blue and green into your spring table arrangements create a refreshing and calming atmosphere for your visitors.
Other popular spring colors are pastels like lavender, yellow, and pink.
You can also choose bright or brilliant colors, such as coral, green, or lilac, to add a fun pop of color to your room and table decor.
Once you have a color scheme locked down, use it to guide your selection of tablecloths, placemats, napkins, and tableware.
Choose a tablecloth or table runner, or placemats.
Select Placemats, a Tablecloth, or a Table runner
You can utilize all of the table linens in concert with each other! A layering technique adds interest and depth.
For example, a runner can add color on top of a tablecloth. Placemats can also sit on top of a tablecloth, overlap a table runner, etc.
Have fun and play around with the table-setting supplies you already have.
Sometimes I like to show off my wood tabletop, so I go with placemats alone!
These natural weave designs in the photos will carry me from spring through summer.
Placemats, personally, give me many more opportunities for usefulness than tablecloths.
For example, I can put them to work in the kitchen, dining room, or for outside dining. They also function nicely for different occasions.
Okay, let’s do this. First, choose your table foundations.
A solid color, pattern, or print with soft spring hues.
As I did, choose natural or white layers if you like a more neutral base. These will be a workhorse in your table-setting arsenal.
Then, simply add your colored blue or green accents with napkins, dishware, and decor.
You could also select neutral-colored linens but with colored details.
Or, if you prefer COLOR, choose fully colored linens. Soft blues or green will create a beautiful foundation for your setting!
Once you have your linen selections, it’s time to add place settings.
Choose plates and tableware that complement the color scheme for a cohesive look.
I used white porcelain dinner plates as a base for my table, then layered them with aqua-blue bowls, specialty plates, and serving pieces for a pop of color.

You could also experiment with full-color napkins and placemats. Alternatively, you can use colored plates and top them with neutral-color top dishes.
Then just add silverware and clear, aqua blue, or green glassware to finish the look.
Robin egg blue, green, or white floral centerpieces can be a great way to add color and visual interest to the center of your table.
Create one large or multiple smaller centerpieces using flowers in these colors.
Then, get creative with candles and candle holders in aqua-blue and green shades for added ambiance.
Small decor pieces can tie a tablescape together and add extra visual interest.
For example, consider adding Easter baskets, colored decorative eggs (affiliate link), or bunny figurines to the table.
Use blue or green-colored ribbon to tie napkins or to decorate the glassware.
Fill dishes with theme-colored candy or chocolates as a different decor element and a sweet treat for guests.
Mix and match different shades of your colors to add extra depth and dimension to the table.
Show your Personality
Feel free to mix and match patterns for a fun and eclectic look.
For example, try pairing floral plates with striped napkins. A bold, large print placemat can add interest and personality to your table.
Remember to stay within your chosen color scheme, and your table design will be cohesive.
It’s all in the Details
Add personalized touches to each place setting to make your Easter dinner feel extra special.
For example, include name cards, menu cards, or customized favors at each place setting.
You could also tie a small ribbon and a tag around each napkin with a personalized message or quote.
Place a small floral arrangement on each plate. These little details may seem unimportant, but they charm your table and guests!
Use Lighting to Set the Mood
Finally, finish off the table setting with lighting.
Turn on small side lamps or wall sconces for an intimate, cozy atmosphere.
Dim the overhead light if it is too bright.
Also, consider using string or fairy lights to create a warm and inviting glow.
Keep it Simple
Ultimately, remember to keep it simple. A cluttered table setting can be overwhelming.
However, with some planning and creativity, you can create a lovely and inviting table to pamper your guests and make your Spring gathering memorable.
