The spring season is well on its way, waxing into full glory with flowers bursting into bloom as each day passes. Rae Lynn is always drawing inspiration from the colors and textures on the natural world to make the world of indoor party decorating a better place.
We are going to share some of our spring table decoration ideas for Easter to keep your own nest looking sharp and seasonally appropriate.
Springtime Easter Picnic
Bring the charm of a spring picnic to your indoor Easter decorating scheme without the sniffles and unwanted “guests.” Find a grassy spot to relax by cutting Green Tissue Grass Decorations into place-mat sized rectangles for each place setting. Scatter orange Paper Carrots in the grass for the Easter bunny and a splash of color.
We recommend one Tissue Grass mat for every two place setting. Open the mat and divide in half by separating along the center seam. Cutting the mat before opening will result in 2 long, strips of grass rectangles.
Hang several Festive Hanging Pom Poms at different heights from the ceiling above the table, and place a Cheerful Striped Ribbed Table Runner down the center. Set 9” Metal Potted Plant Sculptures in Easter springtime colors in a Weathered Rectangle Planter and cover with tissue Easter grass in green, pink, or teal.
Add beautiful springtime Floral Sprays in yellow & white and pink & white in 12" White Eiffel Tower Vases to add height to the table. Affix a couple of Realistic Bumble Bees to buzz around each floral display.
Alternate Mini Lantern Candle Holders in yellow, blue, purple, and green for a delicate garden-style glow. Then, scatter colorful Fabric Hibiscus Flowers down the center of the table. Sprinkle in some candy Easter eggs and Jordan almonds in spring pastel colors, then add Cute Little Bunny & Cabbage Salt & Pepper Shakers for the final detail.
For an extra Easter touch, fold each place setting's white dinner napkin into a bunny rabbit. Here's how: www.goodhousekeeping.com.
Speaking of nests, did we mention how much we love them as decorating accents? Creating your own is easy and offers a chic rustic twist on traditional spring décor. We’ve located a handy tutorial for making your own, but fairly-priced options are also available ready-made from many vendors.
We love the idea of individualized anything, so spring table place settings made from shredded paper and holding miniature candy eggs set atop colorful spring napkins really tickle our fancy. No crafty inclination is necessary; simply place a handful on the surface and arrange three or four candies of your favorite flavors like this one shown from www.marthastewart.com.

For a smaller table, one large nest works wonderfully, and for longer tables make several small vignettes to place down the length. Set them off with a set of beautiful Copper Lily Candlesticks and add Authentic Fiestaware Salt & Pepper Shakers in your favorite color for added effect. Dyed or colored Easter eggs can also be incorporated into the set-up.
How Does Your Garden Grow
Vegetable gardeners are always relieved when the long dark days of winter are over and the soil has warmed enough to reveal tender spring shoots. For a unique twist on the garden party theme, take advantage of the bulbous beauty of carrots, beets, onions, and leeks as well as their gorgeous green tops.
Feature the colorful root veggies in a variety of clear glass vases for a lovely spring table display shown from www.estateweddingsandevents.com. Add 12” Orange or Dark Purple Taper Candles in decorative Glass Flower Candleholders to the scene to incorporate accent lighting. Arrange Miniature Decorative Carrots along the table length for good measure, and top off the effect with Cute Little Bunny & Cabbage Salt & Pepper sets.
Greet your guests with a joyful welcome of cheerful Giant Free-Standing Gerbera Daisies in cream, lilac and magenta. Lift spirits in the foyer and throughout your home with these fully assembled instant-springtime weighted flower arrangements from PartySwizzle.com.
