Easter Table Setting: Florals

Decorated table setting for Easter

I always have a ton of ideas when it comes to creating any table setting.  Easter is no exception.  It is more a case of me trying to stick with 1 theme and make a cohesive look for any of my crafts and decorations.  This year I settled on a floral theme.  Initially, when I thought of florals; I thought pink!  Well let’s be frank, for me, a little pink goes a long way.  So bring on a fresh new color for Easter.  Orange!

Easter Decorations and Table Setting

Obviously, these Easter place settings used my hand-made chargers, no-sew napkins, and patterned Easter eggs.  However, I always have to add some details.

DIY Floral Table Setting


I wanted to layer a number of patterns to create a bohemian feel.  Strips of various floral patterned fabric dressed up white table cloth.  While I quickly colored the floral part of various paper doilies to complement the colors already used in the fabrics.

I also tried to bring in a little spring green, white, and tan to balance out the colors.

I am pleased that the table setting and Easter decorations came out Spring-like and feminine without resorting to a pink bonanza.  Here is one more shot of some of the details.  Below that are all the accompanying tutorials for creating your own DIY Easter decorations.

Patterned Easter Eggs

Folk Art Easter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner and I wanted to make some pretty floral patterned Easter Eggs.  These will be part of my Easter table setting (coming next week).  I blew out some eggs a couple of weeks ago and they have just been sitting…  Waiting… for divine Eggspiration.

Bring on the Pattern

Got a wild hair and grabbed some permanent markers. Voila!  I did these all freehand while trying to throw a ball to McClain and keep Conlan from exercising his new found ability to crawl… off the porch.  Imagine if I had a stencil or even a reference pattern!

Easter Eggs that are Patterned

If using permanent markers I would strongly suggest to NOT eat the egg.  I wasn’t using hard boiled eggs, but I can’t imagine eating anything that smells like those markers do.  But, the markers make a quick and easy way to make colorful patterns on Easter Eggs.

If you want to see these eggs in their final table setting I’ll post a link here when it goes live next week.
