3 Ideas for a Modern Easter Table Setting
Looking to give your Easter table decorations a modern refresh? Here are three super-stylish approaches to setting your holiday table. We’ve mixed traditional touches like pastel accents with out-of-the-box approaches like mixing textures and tones to add a little touch of the unexpected.
In our first vignette, we went with a mix-and-match palette of pastels and gold. Millennial pink works particularly well here. We created a layered place setting starting with a soft pink-hued dinner plate as a base, then a cream-colored linen napkin, followed by an even lighter pink salad plate. We chose plates with different textures and tones for added visual interest. Alongside the plate, we used gold utensils for a touch of elegance. A rose-tinted glass, gold foil-wrapped chocolate Easter bunny, and gold-splattered Easter egg are optional accents that tie the whole look together.
Our second tabletop idea is nature-inspired, using earthy tones and a plant. A speckled plate, neutral linens, and wood-handled silverware set a foundation for a mini potted succulent that acts as a place card at Easter brunch or dinner and then can be taken home as a darling souvenir. Speckled quail eggs act as a beautiful finishing touch.
The final Easter table decoration scheme is a riff on a Scandinavian-style picnic. Using black-and-white checked linen place mats as a backdrop, we set the scene for colorful pops, which are hallmarks of Scandi style. White plates, black-and-white striped napkins, and wood utensils keep with the Scandinavian aesthetic, while a piece of fresh spring produce atop the plate—such as a vibrant radish, leaves and all—really grabs the eye.
