Grass Runner Easter Table Setting | Easter Decor
At Easter, the garden is where it’s at. It’s where bunnies drop eggs and chicks roam free. Bring the garden inside for this festive table setting. This Easter table setting takes minutes to assemble (I opted to outsource to my 2-year old) and will delight all! Just keep your dog off the table.
While Christmas, in my eyes, is always a fine balance between classy and multi-colored tackiness, the traditional Easter colors of white, yellow and grass green can’t go wrong. To add some punch, you could definitely add one more color to this setting. Imagine a tangerine orange or poppy red (very 2013), a hot pink or traditional purple! Up to you. I kept it clean for this one. The key to a nice setting is to stick to your color scheme. Look around in your cupboards and basement and use baskets and bowls that fit the theme in color and texture.
Total Time Required: 15 minute
Grass squares ($2 a piece at Dollarama, I used 4 pieces), chicks & ornaments ($2 a piece at Dollarama, I bought 2 boxes), branches ($5 at a flower store, but I already had mine) and some fresh flowers or a plant ($3.99 at No Frills). I used all my existing plates, glasses, a white table cloth, napkins etc.
Materials & Tools Required:
– White table cloth (white is the best as it is a nice blank canvas from which the grass will stand out nicely)
– Napkins, cloth or paper (green or yellow)
– The usual table setting items you already own (under-plates, plates, glasses, a vase, etc)
A runner on your table is a great way to anchor the “theme”. A mountain of pine cones for winter, a burlap runner for a fall theme — I have done a rose petal carpet for Valentine’s! For Easter, what better to do then bring the garden inside with a “grass runner.” Dollarama sells these artificial grass squares at $2 a piece and I used 4 in a row for my table. Then I also bought some chicks and “artificial “hedge balls” for a few bucks and asked my 2-year old son to help put it on the table with me. Some flowers in the middle of a basket I already had and a yellow vase with branches (any flower store will have various options) — decorate those with some more of those little eggs and chicks ornaments (let your children do this!) and voila. Goodbye table, hello Easter garden.
