Easter is coming up so soon! Are you hosting? If so, don’t stress because we have got all of the tablescape inspo that you need! Some of my blogger friends and I joined together to bring you some Easter tablescape inspiration! I created this simple and affordable Easter table with most everything that I already had. I bet you already have most of what you need, too! If not, it would probably only take a quick trip to the dollar store or craft store to create your own beautiful simple and affordable Easter tablescape!

The first thing that I do when planning a holiday table is find some inspiration. You can search Pinterest, Instagram, or magazines. But honestly, most of the time, my inspiration comes from paper products! I found these pretty plates and Hobby Lobby and loved the colors and that it said “He is Risen”. Because that is the Easter message!
If you have real Easter dishes, of course use those for your inspiration and color scheme! I don’t have the room to store seasonal dishes, or the budget to buy them. Besides, we always end up with a million dishes to wash after a holiday! Just another reason why I love to use paper plates!
So I love to find a cute, disposable holiday table wear! I used the colors in this plate to create my color scheme to create my simple and affordable Easter tablescape.
Shop Your Home
Gather together all of the things from around your house that you think you might use. Be sure to have your inspiration in mind when searching! Then make a list of what you need to complete the table.
Staple Items Needed for Any Tablescape
- White or neutral dishes
- Woven or galvanized chargers
- White or neutral tablecloth (if your table is unsightly, or you want to protect it)
- Coordinating cloth napkins
- Serving utensils
- White or wood serving pieces
It’s a good idea to have some basic table staples that you can use year round. White dishes are always a classic, and can be used both for everyday and holidays. Woven or galvanized chargers can also work with any season or holiday. If you don’t like your table, a white, cream, or natural colored tablecloth is a necessity! Coordinate cloth napkins to match your tablecloth, or have neutral cloth napkins if not using a tablecloth.
Accessorize Your Easter Tablescape
This is the fun part! After you pull your staple tablescape items together, it’s time to accessorize! Look around your home and in your decor stash! Think outside of the box, and gather anything related to Easter, and in the color scheme you are using! Add a table runner, napkin rings, a centerpiece, and any other fun little extras that will jazz up your table! Whimsical or colored chargers are always a fun element to add.
You can see how I created this centerpiece with dollar store items here.
Simple and Affordable Easter Tablescape-It’s all in the Details
Creating a beautiful Easter tablescape is all in the details! The woven charger was layered with a white scalloped charger, then the white dinner plate, and finally the Easter paper plate. My burlap colored napkins matched perfectly with the table runner. Do you see why it’s always a good idea to have a few coordinating staples that you can mix with more fun things!
Layering is always a good thing! For this tablescape, I used a sage colored guaze fabric that I already had. There’s no need to sew fabric to use as a runner! I love how the raw edges look! Then I layered a more narrow burlap table runner over it that I had in my stash. I didn’t even remember that I had this sign until I started going through my spring decor stash! It was the exact theme I’m using!
This is a great chance to do some crafting! You can see how I made this super cute Easter napkin rings here! Can you guess what I used for eggs???
After you have gathered anything you could possibly use, and crafted anything you wish, then make a list of any remaining things you might need to purchase. With the crazy supply chain issues these days, it’s always best to shop early if you can. Be sure to have your inspiration pictures or piece with you when you shop! In this case, when I found the plates in Hobby Lobby, I shopped the whole store and grabbed whatever I thought I might use while I was there. I knew I could return whatever I didn’t end up using.
That’s all there is to creating a simple and affordable Easter tablescape! Find some inspiration, have a good collection of staple pieces, shop your home, be creative, and have fun!
