12 Mar Simple & Chic Easter Brunch Table Setting
Break out the bunnies and tulips! They’re two spring must-haves, and I incorporated both into this orange and green Easter table setting. I designed this pretty little table for a brunch in my NYC apartment. Read on to see all my best tips for elevating your own Easter celebration.

A Twist on Traditional Colors
A tablecloth is the easiest way to change up the whole look of your dining room! Since I have a marble dining table, I’ve been doing a lot of tablescapes lately without a tablecloth or runner (like my pink and navy spring one). For Easter, I wanted to warm it up a bit and added this sage green tablecloth. It even has cute tassels on the edges. This was such an affordable Amazon purchase that made a big impact. The green tablecloth paired with my pink Easter plates gives off classic Easter vibes. If you look closely at the salad plates, they have little bunnies in the flower pattern.
Since everyone chooses traditional pastels for Easter, I wanted to be a little different and add black into the color palette. I chose these matte black bunnies because I thought they seemed chic and were more surprising than white or light-colored ones. The bunnies and the plates were both T.J. Maxx finds.
Tulips on the Table
Tulips are a must-have for Easter! They are in season from March through May, so they’re ideal for a spring table. If you’re buying tulips a few days in advance of your celebration, choose blooms that are still tightly closed. I’m always tempted to buy the ones that look gorgeous at the store, but the closed buds will end up lasting much longer in your vase. They will open up beautifully for your celebration if you cut the stems daily (45 degree angle is best) and give them fresh, clean water every day.
One of my top tips is to add something special or unique to each place setting. I got the cute sparkly carrots at a local dollar store, and I thought they added a fun, whimsical touch. You could also do a single flower stem, a bit of greenery or a piece of Easter candy.
I’d also recommend that you think about your table ahead of time. It’s so easy to find little items around the house that pull it together. I’m sure you all have plastic Easter eggs in the attic that could be turned into place cards or scattered at each setting to brighten up a neutral table.
