WITH JENNY REIMOLD
I am sharing creative and easy ways to style an Easter table with unique finds from HomeGoods. If you are struggling with spring décor, follow my easy steps to bring to life a garden-inspired table this season! Then, recreate this look with HomeGoods in-store or online.
I always go to HomeGoods or browse HomeGoods.com to inspire my decorating themes. The theme for my Easter tablescape is Garden-inspired based on a white quilted table runner with an orange and green carrot print. It’s perfect for an Easter table when complemented with festive accents while also being versatile for Spring.
Think Outside of the Box:
Get creative and crafty with your centerpieces by turning a $20 copper watering can from HomeGoods into a unique and festive vase! Add fresh flowers for a seasonal and eye-catching statement piece and place along at varying heights in the center of your table.
Triple the Texture:
Instead of arranging a table runner down the center of a table, add visual appeal and texture by arranging multiple table runners horizontally across the table. I used THREE quilted, carrot-printed table runners across the width of my table, which serves as a foundation for a festive spring tablescape without using a traditional tablecloth, but they are also placemats for each seat.
FIVE for your FEAST!
Level up your place setting by following a five-piece place setting process that can be created under $25 with items from HomeGoods. Start with a grass cloth charger on top of the table runner, then add a vintage-inspired hobnail dinner plate coordinated with a matching ceramic salad plate and finish it off with a seasonal green cabbage appetizer plate. For an extra special fifth touch, top with a homemade dessert or thematic accent.
Keep it Cohesive:
Complete your place settings with two different colored drinking glasses to keep your color theme cohesive. I always find various unique glassware options at HomeGoods for under $15, ranging from tumblers to wine glasses or goblets.
Hop into the Season:
Incorporate spring’s most anticipated visitor into your tablescape! Sprinkle various sizes of ceramic bunnies throughout the center of your table and face them in different directions so they can welcome guests from every angle. I found these festive white ceramic bunnies at HomeGoods for only $12. You can also stick decorative accents inside lanterns instead of candles like I did with bundles of fabric stuffed carrots to add to the theme of the table.
Tidy up with Plaids, Poppies & Burlap!
Prepare a place setting with a floral or garden themed cloth napkin and bundle it with a bunny! Modern, wooden rabbit ear napkin rings are an easy and affordable way to polish off a place setting for under $10 from HomeGoods. Bring the Easter garden theme even further with a set of $8 carrot-shaped burlap utensil bags from HomeGoods that serve as a creative way to set up your silverware.
Everyday Easter Baskets:
Extend the life of Easter baskets by opting for decorative and affordable storage baskets from HomeGoods that can be utilized throughout the year, like globally-inspired woven containers, children’s canvas laundry hampers or cloth baskets with handles. All are functional options that can be used as bathroom storage for a teenager or a home for plush Easter animals in a bedroom. You can even include your furry friends on Easter morning by creating a basket filled with thematic toys, pet shampoos and festive pet sweaters.
