For Christians, like myself, Easter is upon us this month. And for many, also like myself, you will be having Easter dinner at your house. And, you’ll be thinking – maybe even stressing a little – about how you might create a beautiful table or tables for your guests……without spending a fortune. Well, have no fear – below are some gorgeous Easter table displays and centerpiece ideas that will help put your mind at ease.
Bring out your pretty china to use on the table for color and personality. Clip foliage from your backyard and cluster it in a vase or a teapot. Throw some colored candy eggs in a beautiful bowl with some foliage for color.
Love this blue and white theme. Don’t have this look? Create your own with what you do have. Bring out different dishware and layer it for an interesting fun look. Create your own glitter eggs in your color scheme. Sometimes an inexpensive flat sheet can act as a beautiful table cloth for a lot less money. Large craft paper squares can act as placemats, and your local grocery store many times has excellent prices on fresh flowers. Buy a few bundles, clip them short and cluster several small floral displays around your table. The local Dollar Store has small crystal bowls, candleholders and dishware for – yes, you got it – $1.00 apiece.
Frame a pertinent Bible verse or saying and place it on your table for a lovely, meaningful touch.
This is a great look for a fun, fresh kid’s table. Just a plastic purple tablecloth, lots of plastic eggs, colorful jelly beans sprinkled around and Easter bunny marshmallow candies. Little clipped flowers sprinkled throughout adds brightness and color.
