Colourful Easter Brunch Tablescape

How are the preparations for your Easter celebrations going?  This year, I'm hosting a family Easter brunch after our church service. I'm definitely in the mood for a colourful and fun Easter tablescape to combat all the wintry piles of snow we still have outside.  At least it is melting and we haven't gotten any new stuff!


Inspiration for the tablescape began with my desire to use three of these pastel-coloured wooden totes I've had for years.

I filled them with faux tulips and greenery and placed them down the center of the table.

I could have laid each tote right on the table but I wanted them to have a bit more presence, so I elevated them.

The center one was placed on a white cake plate.

And the end ones were placed on some long white serving dishes.

Colourful Easter eggs and grass were arranged around each wooden tote.

This charming little fellow...

...and his mate were tucked on each side of the centerpiece.

Pink pillar candles with greenery were arranged next to the bunnies.


The tablecloth is from Home Outfitters quite a few years ago.

The dish stack was done in green, blue and pink to coordinate with the tablecloth.

I used yellow dinner plates at alternate place settings as I didn't have enough of the green.

Matching cloth napkins were tucked inside these bunny ear napkin rings (from Bed, Bath & Beyond this year)





Refreshing pink lemonade coordinates with the tablescape. :)

I made these Easter placecards on the computer...

...and set them next to the pastel coloured mugs on white saucers.

Each guest has a few treats next to their place setting.

Foil wrapped chocolate eggs inside a pastel coloured egg cup.









Burlap bunny bags filled with Easter treats...

...make the perfect chairback decorations.

The burlap bunny bags are from the Dollar Store and coordinate well with my colours.





I'm looking forward to Easter and spending time with family gathered round this colourful table.

On the Menu:
Mushroom and Spinach Frittata
Hashbrown Casserole
Crispy Bacon Strips
Caesar Salad
Fruit Salad with Whipped Cream
Homemade Cinnamon Buns
Chocolate Easter Eggs - of course :)


Wishing you a Happy & Blessed Easter!

A simply delightful tablescape. Thank you for all the wonderful color! It is so refreshing to see a non-neutral tablescape. I live in MN and we are preparing for another dump of snow. Your colorful tablescape just made my day!

Lori, I love this colorful table - it is like being a kid in the candy store! The first thing that catches my eye are the beautiful pink flower bowls - those are gorgeous! And the way you set the napkin and bunny ears up makes each placesetting look fabulous. The burlap bags on the back of the chairs is a cute idea as well. Very Fun!!
Happy Spring and Happy Easter!

Your table is both beautiful and fun! Love the filled crates, and I cant believe those burlap bags are from the dollar store! I haven't been there since before Christmas. Hoping they still have them. :) Thanks for sharing with SYC.
