Easter Tablescape: Bring on Spring!

Easter table setting with rabbits, eggs, and paper green grass

It was an enjoyable project to assemble this Easter tablescape and bring a little spring into the house!

Neal and I eat dinner at our table every night, so I wanted something narrow.  This tablescape is simple, but it adds just the right amount of Easter cheer to our home.

I used a piece of 8.5″ natural burlap (which comes on a roll from Hobby Lobby). Instead of cutting it, I folded it under the ends for a length of 41.5″. I try not to cut burlap so I can reuse it over and over again for different purposes. I love burlap!

So now on to how I made the Easter Tablescape

Large Rabbit as the Centerpiece

These rabbits are the main focal points of this Easter Tablescape. I purchased this cute little rabbit at T.J. Maxx. I love his sweet expression. Neal was with me (lunch date) and he selected him from the group of rabbits. This sweet little rabbit served as my anchor for the entire arrangement. I added the double ribbons around his neck. As I pass by the table multiple times during the day, this sweet little rabbit makes me smile.

Speckled Eggs . . . color

I purchased these eggs at Hobby Lobby. These speckled eggs are a colorful addition to our Easter Tablescape–sort of muted but the specks add some texture.

Wooden Boxes . . . texture

I had these old wooden boxes and thought they added an old farm look. The wooden box in the picture below is an old crayon box.

The other wooden box in the picture below is an old cheese box.

Sentimental Chick

This little chick was something I made when I was a young child living in Maryland. I went to a ceramics class with one of my friends and her mother. My Dad was a poultry farmer at the time, so I remember selecting this little chick to paint. It is about 47 years old! I love that I rediscovered it recently.

More Bunnies, Ribbon, and Green Grass

I just love these sweet little moss bunnies from Hobby Lobby. Using ribbon also provided more color, texture, and dimension. Each rabbit with a different pose also makes this have a playful feel.

Here is another view from another perspective. I already had the silver candlesticks. The various sizes and colors give this depth and contrast. I purchased the smaller eggs from Hobby Lobby too.

Place Settings

I purchased these napkins from T.J. Maxx and used them as a layer between the dinner and salad plates.

Hanging Eggs

I purchased these string eggs at Hobby Lobby and hung them on our chandelier with jute string. They have wire under the string; this will help them last for several years. Notice sweet Daisy sleeping on her pillow in the background.

The picture below is the view from our loft. I get to enjoy the tablescape as I work in my office.

You could adapt this Easter tablescape by adding different figurines, different grass, or eggs. Creating this tablescape was fairly economical and I will be able to reuse all of these decorations year after year. You could make this even more economical by using plastic eggs.

A few final thoughts . . .
Decorating for Easter reminds me that spring is almost here. More importantly, however, I am reminded that Lent is a time to prepare my heart for the crucifixion of Jesus and Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He gave his life to pay for my sins.

How do you decorate for Easter?

What does Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection mean to you?

    We have all our family visit and do an Easter egg hunt with all the little ones. Your table makes me want to do up my table. Our little ones would like this.

    I always hang an Easter wreath on our front door and get out an old Easter Rabbit cookie jar my mom had when I was a kid. I also put some pink & blue candles on my table. I like what you did and might add more to my table now. I like your blog.

    I’m absolutely love your blog! I just discovered it and have been looking around for hours, hehe. DIY craft decor is so awesome, to me. Together, my mom and I own a small cabin rental business. Currently, we only rent out our own four cabins, but try to buy a new one each year. One day, I may expand to managing others’ properties, too, but not right now. I love distinguishing my cabins from others with cute, memorable things like year-round decorations (We decorate each of our cabins for Valentine’s Day the whole month of February. Put up Spring decor on March 1st, then switch to our Patriotic Themed decor, which stays up from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Then to Fall & Halloween decor. We modify the Fall decor into Thanksgiving, then we immediately put up the Christmas stuff on Black Friday and generally keep it til February, but just eliminate the Christmas elements and use only the winters ones or the last 3 weeks of January.)

    This is a wonderful idea to add to my Spring decor!!! It would be so adorable. Or I could modify it a bit to place it on the mantle. Lots of cute stuff on your site! I’m so glad I found it! Are y’all on Facebook or YouTube or anything? Thanks so much!!!
