For me, spring can never come too soon. Even though winter is likely to still hang around here in Pennsylvania for a couple of months, I’m already thinking about sunshine, warmer days, and the colors of spring.

Today, I’m excited to present ideas for a fresh and colorful Easter table. On my latest trip to HomeGoods, I noticed that spring merchandise is starting to appear on the shelves. Of course, I was thrilled! To get a head start on the season, I decided to pick up a few new items to style my table.

It was a joy to create this Easter/Spring Tablescape using my latest HomeGoods finds. With a few small edits, it can go from Easter to spring. I hope my table gives you a few ideas for decorating yours.

Here’s what I did!

Florals for Spring
There’s no question that I’m attracted to florals (both patterns and actual flowers) when it comes to spring decorating. My inspiration for this entire tablescape came from these beautiful flower-patterned plates. While some might consider this an “old” pattern, it feels fresh and new to me, so I used it as the springboard for the rest of my design.

I also had to have flower arrangements. Two vases of pink tulips fill the center of the table. A few more flowers are tucked in other places to bring everything together. And as you may have noticed, I didn’t limit myself to a particular color palette. Because I’ve been craving color during this gray winter, I used all the colors of spring.

A Mix of Texture and Pattern
One thing I’ve learned to do when setting any table is to incorporate different textures and patterns. This tablescape includes the following:

  •  small houndstooth in the table runner
  • natural woven texture in the placemats
  • small floral on the salad plates
  • large floral on the napkins

Mixing patterns brings interest and dimension to the table.

A Bit of Whimsy
I think every tablescape needs some whimsy, plus I can’t resist walking through the pantry section at HomeGoods. That’s where I found the chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs. I also purchased a glass jar of colorful jelly beans. I love incorporating such things in a tablescape because they have a dual purpose. They add to the seasonal decor, and they’re a fun treat that guests can take home to enjoy later.

I used more of the chocolate eggs to fill these adorable carrot-shaped dishes. They look great in my table setting, but I think they’d also be fun on a coffee table or kitchen counter once the meal is over. I love finding things I can use in more than one way.

And a Sweet Treat
I found this pair of small white cake stands and had to put them to use on my table.

Because there’s always room for dessert, I whipped up a couple: Blueberry and Lemon Whoopie Pies and Lemon Cream Sandwich Cookies. (You can find the recipes for each on my blog inspiredbycharm.com)

Final Details
To finish my Easter table, I decided to dress up my bar cart. A few simple touches make it feel festive and part of the celebration. Now I’m thinking I may need to serve my Cottontail Martinis again. They’re a delicious and unique cocktail recipe I created a few years ago.

Some other details I love about this table are the pink water goblets, creamer and sugar bowl which match my flowered plates, white-handled flatware, a floral print covered dish, and gold bunnies. (All of these were HomeGoods finds.)

I sure do love my #GoFinding adventures at HomeGoods!

Once I added those details, the table was ready for guests!
