Tablescape: Golden Eggs Easter Tablesetting

posted in: Tablescapes | 2

Easter this year will be different this year without large-group Easter egg hunts, Easter parades, and of course, large church services. We can watch our services online and have Easter egg hunts in your own yard or home. One thing that doesn’t have to change is your family Easter dinner, and this year you may want to have a special tablescape since you have time to plan it and a need to do something special.

Check out this Golden Eggs Easter tablesetting. Several years ago, I found these two large gold metal open-work Easter egg table decorations at the Goodwill. I thought these would make a pretty formal tablescape because it was an unexpected color scheme and because I had other gold accessories. I didn’t use these eggs right away, but I finally found the inspiration.For a formal look, I ironed my cotton and lace tablecloth to get out all the wrinkles (there’s nothing I hate more!) The white cloth provided a crisp ground for the other table items. I used gold acrylic chargers as a base for the white dinner plates. I used four round chargers and two square ones at the ends of the table. I used gold sheen polyester dinner napkins with gold and crystal beaded napkin rings at each place-setting. The look was completed by my Cristal D’Arques Versailles glassware and Gorham Chantilly silverware.Then I placed the two gold eggs in the center of the dining table. Obviously, the two open-work eggs were not enough to complete the look for the table. But the addition of some pastel-colored jelly beans, an icon of the season, at the base of the eggs was just the thing. It took at least two-three bags of jelly beans as filler.

This was an easy tablescape to create (and the jelly beans could fill a candy bowl to enjoy after the Easter meal. Try something fun for your Easter dinner and make it a special occasion for your family! Enjoy!

    The golden eggs would look great with fresh or silk flowers too.
