Today I am sharing a very colorful table for Easter dinner. It is easy, simple, and really fun to create.
I am so excited for spring. While I have loved adding pink to my home, I love all of the colors of spring, including pink. I am very lucky to be in Southern California, so my garden is starting to bloom! I am so happy to be able to create an Easter Dinner spring table using all fresh flowers from my garden!
Spring Easter Dinner
I wandered through the garden in both the front and back yards and found pink camellias and a handful of daffodils! These flowers, together with the eggs that I dyed in the Ameraucana, Araucana and Easter Egger blue and green hues served as the inspiration for this Easter dinner table.
I also knew that I wanted to use the bird’s nests that I had recently acquired to nestle the dyed eggs into.
Creating a tablescape is very much a building process. I started with the color inspiration and built the tablescape from there. I tried a number of different vessels for the centerpiece, but none gave me the color spectrum I was looking for, so I added the small 6” cake plates in white, pink, and robin egg’s blue and draped them with a single camellia. Next, I arranged the daffodils in a white pitcher and added the pink camellias (which happen to have yellow centers) to fill out the arrangement.
I wanted the place setting components of the table to be colorful also. My goal is for the table as a whole to be beautiful, and also each individual place setting. I played with a number of napkin and plate combinations until I settled on this one of the pink plate with the vintage green napkin.
I love my woven rattan chargers, they add so much texture to place setting. I added the shiplap charger which is just a bit smaller to neutralize the brown of the rattan. Next I added the pink plate and draped the green napkin down the middle. I centered the bird’s nest on the plate and added a smidge of greenery and some alyssum that I also found in the garden.
Finally, I popped one of the blue/green hued eggs into the nest.
I recently acquired the crystal goblets at the Barnhouse Chick’s Market Vintage Flea Market last weekend. They were $22 for a set of 6 goblets! I always share whenever Barnhouse Chicks is having a Flea Market. If you are in the Southern California area, these are a treat. This one was outdoors, in a parking lot with social distancing and masks. I have to say, everyone was so happy to be there. The vendors, many of whom hadn’t been able to sell in almost a year as well as the shoppers. Everyone was literally, just so happy!
Finally, I used my depression glass yellow water glasses. I don’t use these very often and was so glad to be able to bring them out!

Frequently Asked Questions
I set a lot of tables and realized, maybe I haven’t answered this simple question before. A basic table setting includes the plate centered in front of the guest. The napkin is placed to the left of the plate, or on the plate. The cutlery is placed on the left and right of the plate in order of use (for formal place settings). For my more casual place setting, the fork is to the left of the plate, centered on the height of the plate. The knife is to the right of the plate with the blade facing the plate so that your guest doesn’t injure themselves when reaching for the knife. The spoon is to the right of the knife. The wine and water glasses are placed at the upper right corner above the knife and spoon. I place the water glass on the outside so that guests have easy access to water.
Start with a theme. A theme can be color, occasion or a focal point, i.e. centerpiece or china. Once you have a theme, start with the centerpiece or table decoration and build from there by adding linens, china, and glassware.
My friends Janine and Ashley also created some spring Tables.
