Seek Out Sunshine

“Easter brunch can be festive and beautiful...and kicked back. I like to use my Ginori Vecchio china because I have serving pieces for lots of decadent options. Choose a room with morning sunlight and add as much color as you can. My breakfast table shown here has three different glazed chintz florals from Lee Jofa. It’s a little wild—and a lot cheerful.” Rebecca Gardner, Interior and Events Designer

Start Soft

“I start with a color palette and build from there. Leaf green and blue? Natural and pink? Just be aware to pick dustier tones so that the table does not veer to the saccharine side. I always factor in the colors of the fresh seasonal flowers I plan to use. Make the tablescape super dimensional by mixing natural textures with a bit of sparkle.” Joanna Buchanan, Product Designer

Look to Nature for Inspo

“My favorite thing about setting our table at Easter is all of the color we can infuse into the space. From the linens to the dyed eggs, I always enjoy pulling colors from the beautiful flowers that mark the beginning of spring.” Tiffanni Reidy, Interior and Commercial Designer

Walk on the Wild Side

“With spring’s lighter mood, Easter is the perfect occasion to create a tablescape layered with a luxe and colorful mix of gold, cream, cobalt blue, and textured metal elements. I also like to include a whimsical conversation piece such as this delightful mahout napkin ring.” Doreen Chambers, Interior Designer

Mix and Match

“I am a fan of monochromatic palettes, but for Easter and spring I say push the envelope and add a touch of shimmer—this year is certainly one to be fun and creative. Accent with place settings, flatware, and candles in varying shades of rose gold. For a chic and grounding finale, weave fresh olive leaves along the table and around the centerpiece.” Brigid Coulter, Interior Designer

Go Bold

“As a lover of bold color and prints, I like to buck tradition and combine saturated colors with the typical Easter pastels. Bringing in strong, saturated colors with the linens and floral centerpieces is a great way to modernize the traditional Easter table and experiment without making a serious commitment.” Kelly Finley, Interior Designer

Formal Yet Friendly

“In our home we like to create a formal setting for Easter. We have a large gathering of family and friends, so we set up restaurant-style. We decorate each table with a centerpiece of spring flowers and candles, and everyone gets a full place setting.” Everick and Lisa Brown, Interior Designers

Pick a Seasonal Palette

“Spring is a time of renewal and rejuvenation, so adding pastel colors, either in your table runner, fabric, or napkins adorning the table, is a simple way to mimic the happenings in nature.” Marissa Whitley Tago, Interior Designer

Have Fun with a Woodland Theme

“Bring a bit of the outdoors in for your tablescape. Incorporate woodland creatures, like squirrels and deer, into the smaller details for a bit of surprise and delight, like I have here on these cupcakes as seen in my book, Celebrate Everything!. Mix in flora and fauna with a variety of white flowers. You can use unique vessels, like these birch rounds, to play up the nature theme.” Darcy Miller, Author and Entertaining Expert

Weave in an Element of Surprise

“I like to incorporate quirky elements from my trips to create a fun table setting. I found these great porcelain elephants and a cool vintage clock on a recent trip to India. I also saw these tiny bells, which we scattered throughout the table to make it more festive.” John Robshaw, Textile Designer

Go for Spring Hues

“Skip the usual pastels in favor of bold and bright colors that celebrate spring. You can mix and match stems from a flower shop, and even use interesting fruits to create a tropical vibe on your table. We also love the look of colorful and eclectic glassware. Matching is overrated!” Lauren Cox, Design Program Manager at Havenly

Think Beyond Bunny Motifs

“When planning for an Easter tabletop, it doesn’t need to be too focused on baby bunnies and chicks. You can take bright colors and patterns, and pair with seasonal blooms arranged simply in like colors. And then have fun mixing china patterns. I like to think of spring—new beginnings, fresh, clean, bright, fun—a breath of fresh air.” MA Allen, Interior Designer

Lay the Table With Colorful Fabrics

“Easter brunch is a fun and festive occasion, and while the typical bunny and egg themed decor is great, you can always up the level of sophistication by incorporating luxurious (and colorful!) fabrics into a decorative table. Manuel Canovas gave an edge to this traditional toile with a fabulous fuchsia/orange color combination.” Anne Hepfer, Interior Designer

Add Vintage Touches

“Add a dash of whimsy to the table with figural serving pieces and accessories. These silver-plated salt and pepper shakers were my grandmother's, but new styles can be just as chic.” Eddie Ross, Co-Founder, Maximalist Studios

Arrange Home-Grown Blossoms

”I would recommend using blossoms and branches from your own garden to create dimension and interest to the table. I love using different shades of greens and pinks for spring, while introducing fresh produce to add an unexpected element. Tying in colored linen napkins adds the finishing touch to a beautiful Easter table.” Kriste Michelini, Interior Designer

Try Unconventional Centerpieces

“Vases are not technically needed to dress the center of your table for an Easter brunch. Raid your kitchen cabinets for favorite pitchers, cake stands, bottles, creamers and fruit vessels to create a multi-leveled still-life display for your Easter table, whose whole is much greater than the simple sum of its parts. Although the shapes and scales might vary of the individual containers, if the vessels are in the same general color and material palette, they will work beautifully as a unified set.” David Stark, Event Planner

Bring Easter Brunch Outside

“Easter coincides with the coming of spring. Take advantage of nature's reemerging beauty by hosting your Easter feast outdoors in an intimate space. An outdoor backdrop frees you up to keep the tablescape fairly simple. Adding throw pillows and blankets makes the table feel cozy and comfortable.” Christine Markatos Lowe, Interior Designer

Accessorize With Colorful Accents

“Instead of opting for the traditional Easter pinks and purples, I work with green to play off of the beginning of Spring. Accommodating my large family leaves little table room for any aesthetic additions like centerpiece items, so I try to pull in as much color as I can from the items that absolutely have to be there. When working with your everyday white china, you can still have a completely over-the-top tablescape by using colorful essentials—flatware, napkin rings, crystalware, and table linens.” Lindsey Katalan, Creative Director, CURATED

Use Gold Details

“Gold accents bring a beautiful layer of richness and elevated living to an Easter brunch table setting. Gold doesn't need to be exclusive to the winter holidays—it is festive any time of the year.” Kelly Wearstler, Interior Designer

Set the Table With Birds’ Nests

“Bring beautiful spring scenery indoors with decorative birds’ nests. You can set them inside tea cups with tiny decorative eggs on top of the nests, this was really a hit at my last Easter gathering. Here you can get creative and mix and match or just stick to a color palette. Try mixing and matching tea cups, creamer and sugar bowls and teapots instead of vases and display gorgeous spring floral arrangements to brighten up your table!” Nasiba Adilova, Founder, The Tot

Decorate With Candy

“We love to mini Cadbury eggs (in all of their pastel shell glory, which perfectly match my table settings) poured into small, interesting bowls. For flowers, tulips are one of the easiest flowers to style and look beautiful with minimal need for arranging – three dozen all in the same shade of yellow or white, or in a range of ombre shades (think palest pink to deep pink) all gathered into a simple vase low enough to allow for table conversation and voila! Our favorite trick for keeping those tulips perfect and fresh? Drop a penny in the bottom of the vase for beautiful flowers for at least a week!” Julie Massucco Kleiner and Melissa Warner Rothblum, Interior Designers

Modernize Your Florals

“A brunch is a great opportunity to bring a modern, fresh look to your Easter table. Update your china and linens with something clean and contemporary. I’m loving the minimal ceramic serveware from Garde. Consider using a color palette of mostly white with pops of muted colors like teal, salmon, canary yellow or green, and incorporate a lot of modern floral arrangements.” Kara Smith, Interior Designer

Add Greenery-Inspired Tableware

“I have always adored setting an Easter table with cabbage-ware salad plates and serving dishes, mixed with solid white dinner plates and a burlap or natural linen tablecloth. It reflects the fresh, clean feeling of spring and lets the food be the real star.” Erin Gates, Interior Designer

Add Delicate, Organic Touches

“Easter is a time for color, celebration, and a chance to refresh and welcome spring. I always incorporate organic elements and for Easter, that means wheat grass in trays with small quail eggs, colorful bunches of carrots and branches with blossoms.” Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, Co-Founder, BIRD Bakery

Incorporate Organic Elements

“To give guests that feeling of vibrancy and excitement that comes with springtime, I like to incorporate natural elements that provide subtle pops of color. These organic pieces can simultaneously work as placeholders, such as green apples with a top leaf inscripted with your guest's names in gold ink. When selecting these fresh elements, don't be afraid to play with height to add dimension and create an exciting tablescape. Different sizes allow your eye to travel and highlights the crisp, spring components.” Jung Lee, Lifestyle Expert
