While I know most of us won’t be celebrating Easter in the traditional way this year, there’s no reason we can’t make the day feel special! I think it’s even more important during these unprecedented times to keep our traditions going. They ground us, make us feel more normal, and increase our connectedness.
Today I’m sharing a garden inspired Easter table setting that’s perfect for making your holiday stand out no matter what’s going on in the world. It’s important to celebrate our holidays and each other. To take time to appreciate all we have and practice gratefulness.
So even if it’s just three or four of you, break out the Easter or spring-themed dishes. Grab some flowers at that trip to the market. Use some cloth napkins. By elevating the meal, it makes it more of a celebration, and brings us closer together.
And that’s something we could all use a little more of right now…
Before I even started putting together this Easter table, I had a garden-inspired theme in my head. We’ve had a little sunshine lately and I’ve seen some flowers starting to pop out and it’s really lightened my mood.
There’s something about nature marching on, regardless of what’s happening, that’s oddly reassuring.
I was lucky enough to find ranunculus at my local Trader Joe’s last week, and you better believe I plucked some right up! They’re one of my absolute favorite spring flowers and I can never get enough of them!
To me they look like little peonies – another spring favorite 😉
Since I couldn’t go buy anything, I needed to use what I already had. So I went foraging in the backyard and my dishes cabinet to see what I could come up with.
My centerpiece consists of the pink and white ranunculus in a white enamel vintage watering can. Funny because I probably never would have picked this, but I ended up loving how it looks!
The watering can really gives the whole table that garden feeling. I simply mixed the pink and white flowers with some eucalyptus – so easy! And another benefit? If you can find them, ranunculus last soo long! They are still here on the dining table, and I did this table over 10 days ago!
The white embossed bunny plates are one of my favorites – and I haven’t used them in ages! After digging them out of the cabinet, I found I loved the simplicity of the white on white look.
I also added a few little bunny egg cups that I got at Pottery Barn a few years ago, as well as my favorite faux eggs scattered on the table. These are something I use frequently, not just in tables, but also in my spring decor.
The chicken wire chargers were also something I already had, and another favorite I haven’t brought out in awhile.
So go through your cabinets! Bring out some plates or chargers that you haven’t used in awhile and mix them up in a new way.
Over on the sideboard I created another garden-inspired area.
Plants, lots of galvanized zinc, and a cheerful bunny create a sweet little vignette.
Bunny napkin rings and a paisley pastel napkin round out each place setting. But you could use any pastel or spring-y colored napkin here. In fact, I almost used my pink linen ones and I think they would have worked fine, too!
And this doesn’t just work as an Easter table setting. You could easily change this out for Passover or another spring gathering by simply removing the bunny plates and using another white plate – it’s easily changeable and could work for so many different occasions. This would even be cute for a bridal shower or Mother’s Day brunch!
I hope you are able to celebrate the holiday with those you love. Even if it’s small, even if you aren’t ordering a ham for ten, or Aunt Edna can’t come, it can still be a special day for you and your family!
And I hope this has inspired you to use what you have. I’ve never used the pieces together in this way before but it was fun to mix it up and come up with something new!
