Easter Party Ideas for Tablesetting

Line the table with small glass vases filled with colorful flowers. You can buy colorful flowers at a grocery store or farmers’ market. If you have them growing in your yard, those work too!

Easter party ideas for flower arragements

You can also create a large Easter themed floral arragement for the table too. This bunny vase is an old one from Pottery Barn. They have beautiful stone vases that would work well for spring too.

Place copper and speckled Easter eggs down the middle. See our guide for dying and coloring Easter eggs and how to make copper eggs!

Instead of traditional seating cards, make calligraphy eggs with guests’ names! We used beautiful wooden napkin holders to place the eggs on the table. It worked perfectly!

Use colorful dinnerware and fun glasses to add more color to the table.
