Hopping For A Festive Easter Celebration

Published April 15, 2019

Are you hosting an Easter celebration this year? If so, try one of these cute table setting ideas and let your creativity roll.

Most of these take only minutes to assemble and the results are worth the effort.

Bunnies in terra cotta

This idea is easy and pretty for a dinner table. Purchase some miniature terra cotta pots from your local craft store. You will also require small white eggs, miniature pom poms, some green and white craft paper, a glue gun and a pink felt pen.

Clean your eggs and set them aside. Cut a piece of green craft paper into seven centimetre by five centimetre pieces and then carefully snip the top edges away with a pair of scissors to make grass blades. Repeat this step with the remaining pieces of green paper.

Using some Scotch Tape, attach the piece of snipped grass to the inside edge of the terra cotta pot.

Attach the white pom pom to one end of the egg and insert the egg into the pot. Cut out two bunny feet from your white craft paper or alternatively use some pink felt. Use your pink felt pen to draw the pads of feet on one side of the craft paper.

Attach the feet to the egg. Use a small sign or other place marker to write each attendees name on.

Basket with greens and battery-operated lights

I actually saw this idea in a store window and thought it would make a great table setting idea. A small brown wicker basket with a handle would be perfect for this idea. You will also need some small-leaf greens from your garden or florist shop. The key to this arrangement is the battery-operated LED lights. You can find these online or in home décor stores.

Fill your basket with the greens and randomly place the LED lights throughout. Be sure to add a fresh set of batteries to the LED lights beforehand. To finish off the arrangement add two or three medium size chocolate bunnies on the top of the greens.

Green envy

This is my favourite back up idea when I am pinched for time. Simply colour 12 white eggs in various shades of green.

Let them dry. Once the eggs are completely dry arrange them in two or three clear, glass containers and arrange greens such as boxwood or salal on top. It’s a simple idea and very effective when combined with small, chocolate bunnies at each place setting.
