Black and White Easter Table

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 Easter

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.  I you’re looking for something a little different for your Easter decorations this year, than this might be for you as well.  Black and white is one of the latest trends, and I love how it looks for our Easter table.

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 one 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.  The plates look like the cutest bunny head.  And the chairs are so cute with their little Easter bunny tails attached.

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.

Easter Egg Centerpiece

For an Easter centerpiece I did a mix of Easter eggs in an antique wooden box.    The box is one I found at an antique store and I love how the long narrow box, echos the long table.  The rich and rustic wood tone also helps add a little warmth to our black and white color scheme. The box was filled with moss first.  I used mainly green moss, but there’s also a few pieces of grey moss.  Then I layered in an assortment of Easter eggs, and just a few feathers. I love how fun details like a few feathers add to the depth and interest in a display like this one.

Th white eggs, and some of my DIY Cement Easter eggs -check out the tutorial for them here, were the first ones I added to the display.  I also spray painted some of the white craft eggs with a matte black.  For a few of them I added some pattern to plain the 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.  There are some natural wood eggs, as a couple pastel eggs as well.  I also added a string of fairy lights for a little added sparkle.  I used this as a centerpiece for the table but these eggs would make beautiful black and white easter decor anywhere in your home.

Spring Branches

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. 😉  Or ask your florist if they have any ready to open.  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 -click here for the tutorial.  They’re actually inexpensive ceramic bunnies from the dollar store who got a makeover to look like cement.  They would also be really cute on your porch as Easter door decor.  

Place Settings

For the actual place settings, I kept things really simple.  I used my everyday white dishes, and everyday water glasses.  The black and white striped napkins add a little pattern to the setting.  Buffalo check napkins would be a great choice too.  The black cutlery is like the jewelry of the table and adds a little modern sophistication to my quirky Easter table.

I love how the black and white decor in the dining room turned out and how simple it is.  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!
