Easter Tablescape: a DIY moss table runner, spring bulbs, eggs, nests, blues, greens and purples create the perfect woodland spring table.
This Easter tablescape is perfect for celebrating spring. It’s the prettiest table I’ve set in a long time, and just love all the blues, greens and purple flowers. There’s nothing like bulbs blooming to bring the smell and feeling of spring! This table is perfect for your Easter celebrations this year, and sure to impress your guests. We partnered with Giant Tiger to put it all together.
The Place Settings
I fell in love with these pretty striped dinnerware when I saw them. The blue stripes reminded me of vintage Cornish ware. And the colour made me think of beautiful blue birds eggs in nests -could there be a more spring like image? So they were my jumping off point for the entire Easter tablescape.
I thought it would be fun to do an entire table in shades of blue, green, and purple, so I stuck to that end of the colour wheel. The table’s rich colours are so full of life, and feels especially perfect for spring.
On top of each plate, I added a little nest and some faux eggs, to make my original vision come to life. I used some green glasses, pretty gold cutlery, and dark linen napkins to complete the place settings.
The Easter Tablescape Centrepiece
What could be more spring like than spring bulbs? I found the pretty flowering bulbs in-store at Giant Tiger. There’s a combination of tulips, crocus, hyacinths, grape hyacinths, and primroses. I also added in an ivy and some ferns. Giant Tiger has a great selection of live plants, and their prices can’t be beat.
Moss Table Runner
I decided to make a table runner of moss down the centre of the table. To create it I started by adding a layer of plastic cellophane to the table, just to protect it from the damp moss. My sister is a florist and gave me the tip of soaking the moss from the craft store in a sink of water before working with it. You can work with the dry moss, but it tends to crumble and break easily and isn’t very flexible. After dipping the moss in water, and gently squeezing the water out, it’s really flexible and easy to work with. I pieced the moss I had together to form the table runner, and then made holes to set the plant pots in.
To tie the look all together, I removed the wrappers from the plant pots and then topped each one with more moss. The brown and green pots worked well with my moss. Don’t forget that you can plant the bulbs outside afterwards, and enjoy them next spring coming up in your garden.
I love the rustic woodland look of the moss and all the live plants. To elevate the look, I added some beautiful gold candleholders from Giant Tiger. The candle holders help add a little sparkle to the table, and tie in really well with the gold cutlery.
Last week I made the eggshell planters our of real eggshells and some grape hyacinth bulbs. You can find the whole tutorial to make the eggshell planters here. They were a really fun touch to this table. I also added in some birds eggs here and there, and some white mushrooms that worked so well with our spring woodland look.
An Easter Dessert Table
On the little side table I set up dessert. It’s great to have it available and not have to worry about setting it up after dinner, and it looks great as additional decor. To match our table I added some more spring bulbs and plants. I was lucky enough to find a real nest and it’s such a cute addition.
Everyone loves chocolate and candy at Easter. We picked up lots of delicious Easter treats, and goodies at Giant Tiger. They’re perfect for your Easter egg hunt, or added to dessert like we did here. I used some glass vases to serve them in, and they’re not only delicious, but add to the decor as well.
The beautiful mirrored tray is also from Giant Tiger. It’s holding the Chocolate Trifles, we’ll be sharing the recipe for these tomorrow. They’re perfect for Easter, since everyone loves chocolate, you can make them ahead, and they’re really easy to put together. Find the easy no-bake recipe for the Chocolate Trifle here.
I’ve been thinking about adding some soft billowy curtains to soften the shutters on the back door for a while. I picked up these pretty sheer curtains and this adjustable curtain rod at Giant Tiger. I love the idea of opening the patio doors on spring days and seeing the curtains on a sunny spring day.
With a beautiful Easter Tablescape like this to celebrate with, life really is a party!
