Easter is just a couple weeks away, and if you’re celebrating the holiday, here are a few ideas for your table.
Easter Egg Centerpiece
For a quick Easter-ready table, grab a couple of glass vases or jars and fill them with Easter eggs. It’s a simple way to decorate for Easter without having to spend much money or go overboard. For my pre-Easter table, I placed a platter (a DIY project I made from a candle holder and a plate) with candles between the vases. If you decide to do something similar, consider replacing the candles with these adorable deviled egg chicks for your Easter celebration.
Bunny Napkin Fold
Watch the video tutorial for this napkin fold from Better Homes and Gardens here. Gluing googly eyes or a cotton ball to the ribbon or napkin ring would make this napkin look even more like a bunny.
Bunny Egg Holder & Place Marker
This egg holder doubles as a place marker. The best part? These bunnies are made from toilet paper rolls. I chose to cover mine in paper instead of paint them, but you can check out the DIY instructions here. As the DIY article points out, this is a wonderful craft for kids and can be used for play after the meal.
Chalk Easter Egg Nest & Paper Placemat
It can be difficult to keep children entertained at long meals, especially if there’s a lot of grown-up talk. Cut a rectangle of brown packing paper and use it as a placemat at each child’s place setting. On the plates, use rafia to make a nest, and then place a chalk Easter egg in the nest. Not only will your table look festive, but your little ones will be able to draw on their placemat to keep themselves entertained during Easter brunch. Don’t worry– if the chalk gets on the tablecloth, it should wash out, making it a much better tabletop option than crayons or markers.
