Our family plans for Easter were the same this year as every year. The family comes to our house for brunch and weather permitting, we have an outdoor Easter egg hunt. Unfortunately, that’s not happening this year since we’re all sheltering in place. Although it makes me sad, I’ll still set an Easter table for just hubby and me.
During challenging times like we’re experiencing now, I think it’s important to create bright spots and memorable moments when you can. I know it can be hard to feel festive, but sometimes using your creativity for something simple like a table setting can prove therapeutic.
You’ve probably seen the above napkin fold around an egg before. It’s an easy way to create bunny ears. I love the the pink and gray color scheme.
Below is a different way to create a bunny with a napkin. I’ve always been a fan of napkin folding at place settings.
White and pale green creates a subtle but festive spring setting. Tulips from the garden or store are tucked in simple mason jars and white eggs are used – no dyeing necessary!
I love the modern elegance of this simple pink and gray Easter table setting. Golden eggs pair well with gold-tone flatware. If you don’t have pink plates or other Easter colors, you could always go with paper plates. If it’s just a couple people, there’s really no shame in going casual. Your table can still be pretty.
Mix and match table settings always create interest. Here, plates with different textures pair up to create a simple but festive setting. Add a couple of eggs and candles and you’re good to go!
I’m in love with this white and elegant place setting for Easter. I might have to create something similar for our holiday brunch for two.
Eggs and spring flowers are a classic choice. I’ve got a collection of speckled faux eggs on hand that I love to use this time of year.
If you’re not a pastel kind of person, neutral tones can be used for your spring table.
Consider a different type of centerpiece this Easter. If your tulips aren’t blooming yet and you don’t want to risk a trip to the grocery store to get some, why not bake some Easter Paska bread or similar and use it to decorate your table?
Whatever your plans have become for Easter, I hope that you’ll find a measure of peace and joy on this holy day. Think of a way to make it special even though you’ll likely be missing family and loved ones. And let’s all hope for health and spring-like weather!
