Neutrals don’t have to be boring!  Looking for something unique this Easter? Keep reading to find out how to make this beautiful Easter tablescape using neutral colors!  

All of my friends know that I love neutrals.  What can I say?  I just LOVE them!  While spring tables can be beautifully decorated with pastels or vibrant colors (all of which I love, too!), they can also have a much softer look with neutrals.  You probably already have the basics that you need to create this Easter tablescape too!

So, let’s get started.  We are going to create a neutral tablescape that makes a statement for Easter!

How to Make an Amazing Easter Tablescape With Neutral Colors

How to create neutral place settings for an Easter tablescape

Tip: Make either your centerpiece or the place settings the statement and keep the other one simple!

Because I want my centerpiece for this Easter tablescape to really be the statement, I kept my place settings very simple.  Using my everyday white dishes, I layered dinner and salad plates together.  Matte gold flatware and glasses that I’ve had for over 14 years complete the functional part of each place setting.

Add simple, seasonal accents

To give a spring look this otherwise multi-seasonal place setting, I added a simple eucalyptus candle ring wreath from Flower and Home Marketplace.  This eucalyptus has such a realistic look and soft color.  Since they are really easy to shape, I had the place settings looking like spring in a matter of minutes!

When we are ready to sit down and eat, it will take a few seconds to pull the greenery off of the place settings for family to fill their plates!  In the meantime, it will be pretty and inviting for Easter!

Since you can hardly have an Easter tablescape without eggs, I used these cute egg cups, also from Flower and Home Marketplace.  The texture is absolutely beautiful and really elevates the whole place setting.  Flower and Home Marketplace has matching egg salt and pepper shakers and cake stands too, which also look so pretty on my Easter tablescape!

I added a concrete egg to each cup.  The concrete feels especially symbolic of the true reason and meaning for Easter and I love that bit of detail.

Use inexpensive napkins for color and pattern.

To add some light spring color, I used my favorite light blue striped napkins.  They are inexpensive but have such a high-end look and feel.  The blue blends so beautifully with the gray concrete eggs and the stripe adds a casual and inviting pattern!

There are a lot of beautiful and even fancy ways to use napkins for place settings.  My favorite is a super fast and easy one.  I pinch the napkin in the very center, pick it up, and let the four corners fall.  Then, I lay it on the plate with the pinched center at the top.  Especially if I want to see a lot of the napkins color and pattern, this allows more to be seen, even when layering the dishes.

Re-create this look!

Other than the concrete egg and egg cup, every single piece in this place setting is one that I can use year-round.

Tip: Invest in basic tableware that you love!  You can inexpensively dress it up for every season and celebration!

Create a unique centerpiece and make a beautiful focal point!


DIY Table Runner


I had so much fun creating this centerpiece.  Nonetheless, prepare yourself for a bit of a mess!  It isn’t the easiest DIY table runner, but it is really budget-friendly (I got my sod for FREE!), perfect for spring, and definitely unique!

Last year, I created this same DIY table runner (just a little different dimensions) for the kids’ Easter table.  You can find all of the details and a simple tutorial for how I created this DIY table runner on THIS POST!

I will also mention that I should have cut my sod just an inch or two more narrow.  It would have given a little space between the sod and the place settings.  However, cutting the sod is, to be honest, a messy job and I didn’t want to redo it.  😂

It all worked out in the end, but when you try this DIY table runnermeasure very carefully!!!


Add greenery or flowers for Easter


Since I was using what I had on hand and being as budget-friendly as possible for my Easter tablescape, I cut some free branches from my yard for this centerpiece!  Vintage vessels are my favorite kinds of vases, so I added the branches to this French vintage zinc pitcher.  I love how the zinc blends beautifully with the concrete eggs too!


Add Easter accents like bunnies and eggs!


In keeping with my Easter neutrals, I added my favorite bunnies.  By using three bunnies, I keep the centerpiece from being perfectly symmetrical.  These bunnies come in a few different sizes and I can’t get enough of them!


At a recent open-air vintage market, I found these amazing wooden eggs.  They are solid wood and HEAVY!  I love the varied sizes and the sod is perfect for styling eggs because you can prop them at different angles and positions.  The sod helps keep them from falling over!

I haven’t been able to find any wooden eggs this large to link for you, but these small wooden eggs are adorable and can be styled so many different ways.  You can find 5 different ways to decorate with faux eggs on THIS POST.

This set of wooden eggs has varied sizes would definitely give you a similar look and they would be cute in Easter baskets too!

And that’s it!  Very easy and natural elements but when they are combined, make a beautiful statement for the Easter and spring seasons!  Neutrals don’t have to be boring at all!  I do love Easter color, too, so you could use this same Easter tablescape idea and just add your colors with printed napkins, colored eggs, or fresh flowers!

Most of all, I hope you have fun preparing a special table to celebrate this beautiful holiday with your family!
