I'm Amanda and I’m passionate about creating a well loved and well lived in home for my family and I I'd love to help you do the same!
I like to keep my Easter décor simple. My girls (5 and 7 years old) won’t let me get away without festooning the house with an assortment of bunnies and eggs. However, by keeping the palette neutral and classic I can enjoy the season as well. This year I teamed up with Crate&Barrel to create an effortless Easter tablescape. I combined everyday tableware with a few extra touches to create an Easter dining experience that is casual and comfortable, but that still feels special.

I chose a palette of pale greens and blues combined with neutral basics to create a soft Spring feel. Linen napkins in a mossy green contrast beautifully with the darker pewter cutlery. Woven placemats tie in with the natural fibre rug and wooden benches. The organic feel works nicely with the view of the trees through the floor to ceiling windows. It almost feels as though the outdoor and indoor spaces are blending.
Lighting is a simple way to add ambience and I always set a table with either twinkle lights or candles to add a soft glow. This time I placed pillar candles on a bed of dried moss inside large glass vessels. Then I layered pretty blue speckled ceramic eggs around the base.
I also added tall tapered candles in ceramic holders to add height to the easter tablescape. At dusk, it really is magical to sit and eat by candlelight as the sun sets.
Stunning faux magnolia branches in a large glass vessel full of pretty pastel eggs makes a statement centrepiece. You want the centrepiece to be the focal point of the table without being overwhelming. The simple white blooms are a reminder of Spring, but also blend beautifully with the snow still on the ground here every April!
An eggcup candle holder at each place setting is a sweet little gift for guests and a simple DIY:
Simply crack an egg in half and wash out the bottom, larger half of the shell. (You can discard the smaller, top half of the shell. I like to use mine in the garden to add nutrients to the soil). Place the clean shell in the egg cup with a tealight popped inside! For a more formal get together with assigned seats, you could add name tags to each cup!
Faux peony blooms, or fresh if they are available, add interest to the table and brighten the setting. And I couldn’t resist these simple white ceramic bunnies! They look pretty placed as part of the table setting or add a sweet touch to a bar cart or console table in the room.
Another subtle way to add some rabbity style to your décor is to make napkin bunnies instead of using a napkin ring!
They look adorable and are easy to make. If you want to try some yourself her’s a tutorial for how to fold a bunny napkin!

Remember you don’t have to go out and buy everything brand new and it doesn’t need to be complicated to set a pretty table. This look can easily be recreated using your everyday dishes, a few soft linens, inexpensive tea light candles, and branches cut from the yard!
