Black and White Easter Table: black and white Easter eggs, bunnies ears and tails, and forced spring branches create the perfect modern Easter tablescape.
Non-Traditional Black and White
This black and white Easter table is pretty perfect. At first I wasn’t sure about straying from the traditional pastel Easter palette, but I really love how it turned it.
Bunny Ears and Tails
It all started with these adorable bunny ears and tails. I picked up the little sets at the dollar store. I used all white, but if you were doing pastels for Easter then you could grab some with pink inside the ears, or more colourful ones.
This was so simple, and it’s truly on of my favourite ideas ever. All I did was wrap the ears around the dinner plates, and slide the tails (they’re on an elastic piece already) over the chairs.
Is this not the cutest ever?
Simple and Monochromatic
For the rest of the table, I kept it pretty simple. I used my DIY macrame table runner down the centre. It’s always good when you’re going with a really simple colour palette or a monochromatic one to remember to add texture for interest. This runner adds lots of great texture.
For a centre piece I did a mix of Easter eggs in an antique wooden box. The box was filled with moss first, and then I tucked in an assortment of Easter eggs.
I used some white, and some of my DIY Cement Easter eggs -check out the tutorial for them here. I also spray painted some with a matte black. For a few of them I added some pattern to plain white craft eggs with a simple sharpie marker.
My favourites are the black and white marble eggs.
Check here to see a tutorial of how I made the Black and White Marble Easter Eggs, including a video. They’re so simple and are made from black and white nail polish. I added a string of fairy lights for a little added sparkle.
Instead of flowers I used a some spring branches. This is actually magnolia and I’m hoping it will be blooming by Easter.
They take about 4 weeks in the house to force, so you might want to pick some now too. 😉 In the between time while I wait for them to bloom, I love the rustic feel they give, and their fuzzy buds. I put them in a old vintage black enamelware coffee pot I found at the thrift store. And, I’ll be trying really hard to check the water every few days.
Another fun DIY on the table, are these cement looking bunny rabbits. They’re actually inexpensive ceramic bunnies from the dollar store who got a makeover to look like cement. Watch for the tutorial on the blog next week.
For the actual place settings, I kept things really simple. I used my everyday white dishes, and everyday water glasses. The Hearth and Hand napkins add a little pattern to the setting. The black cutlery is like the jewelry of the table and adds a little modern sophistication to my quirky Easter table.
I love how it turned out and how simple it was. Don’t forget to grab your bunny ears and tails at the dollar store while you can still find enough matching sets for your whole table, or order them online so you have them in time.
With a black and white Easter table, life really is a party!
