There is no need to overdecorate your table for Easter brunch or dinner. Simple themes of spring, nature and subtle nods to Easter symbols like bunnies, eggs and ducks can be accomplished in no time at all (phew!) with a few DIY tips.
For a beautifully subdued Easter table, leave some of your Easter eggs white and paint others turquoise blue, then set them in small baskets purchased from a crafts store along with other natural materials like twigs, leaves and acorns or other nuts. Use a rustic birdcage or birdhouse for the centerpiece.
Draw attention to the center of your Easter table with unique pieces that you can create yourself in no time. We love a simple white or glass bowl filled with colorful faux flowers and glittery eggs.
A unique Easter centerpiece can be as simple as a vase or a jar filled with seasonal items (such as jelly beans or citrus fruit like lemons and limes) and a mix of flowers from your own backyard or the grocery store. Measure the stems before placing them in clear glass vases or jars of different heights so the heads of the flowers are right above the tops of the containers. Clip the stems accordingly to fit each vase or jar. Place the containers in an arrangement of different heights, in groupings of three, to add visual interest.
Create a special centerpiece just for the kids' table featuring favorite barnyard animals — made of marshmallows. Let your kids join in the fun of making this cute display from Country Living. All you will need are regular-size marshmallows for the animals' bodies (some shaping with scissors is involved), marshmallow fluff as the "glue," food coloring, and jelly beans for the various body parts, as well as sweetened coconut flakes for grass and fur. This is a big hit with the little ones. For another fun touch at the kids' table, top their plates with a cute napkin folded into a bunny and place a basket of homemade hollow chocolate Easter eggs as their place setting so they can take home a sweet treat.
