Easter Table

Hello! Last week, I shared my Easter decorations, and today I’m sharing how I decorated my kitchen table for our pre-Easter dinner.

Last weekend, my mom and Gma were visiting. After my Gma mentioned picking up a ham at Aldi, we decided to have an early Easter dinner.

Kind of like “If you give a mouse a cookie…” Well, if you give Jen a ham, she feels the need to throw together an Easter tablescape. So, I’m sharing what I got together pretty quickly to make a festive table for our dinner this past Sunday.

After Aldi, I stopped by Michael’s because I couldn’t find the craft paper at home that I used last year as a table runner. Well, Michael’s was out of craft paper, but I picked up these cute egg shell baskets to fill with decorative eggs.

While at Kroger, I picked up some flowers and put them in Mason jars. I cleared off the normal tray items (napkins, S&P) but kept my mini Antique Candle Co. candle out on the small white pedestal.

I pulled out some placemats and chargers that I’ve had forever, and added in the cloth napkins and napkin rings.

In April of 2020 when just the four of us were home for Easter, I traced the bunnies and glued a cotton ball on as a tail. I just tape them to the napkin ring. Last year, we hosted Easter, and I made a few more and laminated them before adding the tail. Now I keep all the bunnies in a baggie to reuse each year.

The table looked pretty and spring-like very quickly with just a few touches.

That being said, it was driving me crazy because I couldn’t find the craft paper that I used last year as a table runner. I’m not a big fan of tablecloths, and most runners and pretty small for our farmhouse table. The craft paper was perfect last year, but it’s still missing. {I’m going to buy more and make sure it stays with the wrapping paper which is where it should be anyway.}

Once we decided to have a nice dinner, I wanted the table to be special as well.

The menu:

We had…

  • ham
  • Bob Evans Mashed potatoes
  • bagged Caesar salad
  • Sister Schubert rolls
  • green bean casserole

Last year:

I’m sure I shared this last year, but here’s how I set the table in 2021 when we hosted Easter for Trav’s side of the family.

The kids’ table was cute too!

With Easter just a few days away, I’m hoping you’ve found a few ideas if you are hosting!

See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites.

  1. Loved seeing your early dating pics yesterday and this table is so pretty! I love the cracked egg baskets! I finally put my minimal Easter decor up and will show it tomorrow. I got a huge ham at Kroger for $8 yesterday in my pick up! I love that you did it early. It’s such a good meal and it makes me wonder why we don’t have it more!

      1. Wow! I head Louisville had a tornado. Glad everyone is ok! The kids had a track meet in the sun and then we were home about 30 min and we got the storms


  2. I love those egg baskets from Micheals. I was just in ours yesterday and didn’t see them. I may go back and look again today. Your table looks great! The If you give Jen a ham… made me laugh out loud! I’m glad you had a great time with your mom.
