SEaster is such a joyful holiday, and a lovely chance to celebrate with family and friends over a good meal. As devotees to great table settings, we’ve developed some Easter decorating ideas that will help enliven your table and usher in that cheerful spring feeling. Discover festive and elegant Easter table setting options on the Pomegranate blog.
Define Your Palate with a Pretty Tablecloth
The first step to establishing an elegant Easter table setting is choosing a tablecloth that will define the color palette for your gathering. For some, Easter and spring means it’s time to incorporate vivid hues like hot pinks and lush greens, while others may opt for a slightly more subdued approach that uses brighter shades as accent colors. The goal is to create a homey and welcoming atmosphere for your Easter party, and with the right accessories, either approach will be sure to add cheer to your table!
Layer Your Linens
When it comes to Easter decorating ideas, a well-considered table creates visual layers for your guests to enjoy, which is why we love layering linens of different colors, patterns, and textures together for a robust and elegant Easter table setting. Adding a contrasting table runner is one way to build on your color scheme while defining the center of your table. And, if you prefer using a bare tabletop that shows off the grain and texture of your dining table, a single table runner can help you strike the right balance between rustic and refined.
Consider Spring Fabrics for Placemats
If you still need to add some color to your table, placemats are a perfect opportunity to build on that color palette you’ve established with your tablecloth or table runner. And, by the time Easter rolls around, spring has (hopefully!) arrived where you live and it’s time to swap out those weighty winter fabrics with airier options. Look for placemats in seasonally appropriate, lighter fabrics like cotton or linen, which will add texture and color to your Easter table.
Add Contrast With Your Napkins
While you’ll find us using cloth napkins every day of the week, we find that they are especially impressive during parties and gatherings. If you’re looking for creative Easter decorating ideas for your cloth napkins, explore the rest of our blog for handy tutorials on easy yet elegant napkin folding techniques. And, if your brunch or party includes a cocktail or appetizer component, you’ll want to stock up on charming cocktail napkins to keep things tidy—plus, machine washable options make cleanup a breeze.
Opt for Unexpected Prints
One of our favorite Easter decorating ideas involves incorporating unexpected prints into your tablescape. If you’re hosting a brunch, consider Indian Handblock prints, which are created using a centuries-old method practiced today by highly trained artisans. These pretty, exotic, patterns and saturated colors are sure to dazzle your guests and will create a refined, worldly sensibility for an elegant Easter table setting approach.
Embellish Each Setting
The best hostesses distinguish themselves through attention to detail, so why not set yourself apart from the crowd with embellishments that communicate to your guests how much you appreciate them. As far as Easter decorating ideas go, this could mean adding a sweet placecard to each table setting, or a fun party favor or tasty treat your friends and family can bring home with them. We also love the idea of incorporating a sprig, flower, or even lush succulent into your table settings—simply arrange them artfully on the table, or cut a few fresh blooms or herbs and tuck them into your guests’ napkin rings for that special finishing touch.
